Counterso, I wrote "on and off".....I used it for the first couple months straight, then didn't use it much after that, I would throw it on every now and then. The steroid on the other hand, I have been using that for the last 3 months, I use it 7 days on, 4 days off.....I'm not really sure if that's alright. But I haven't gotten any side effects so far, and I doubt side effects would suddenly start after I stopped using it. In any case it helps the healing for me, things are still getting better, albeit obviously very slowly. What puts my back is erections or ejaculating, which I'm sure is because it stretches the inflamed tissue.View Thread
If you are still using the sunshine cream, I would lay off it and reevaluate. After a year of on and off use of it, I can say I think it makes things worse (for me), the SL part of my injury at the corona is never red/inflamed looking unless I use that and it stays red until I shower and wash it off.
naproxen is a topical NON STERIODAL cream. I would go and ask the uro for a steroid, which may help a lot more.
I figured that is how they would do the surgery, degloving the penis, which isn't something I would want to jump at. But at the same time I fully understand how insane not being able to have erections makes you. It's so much worse than just not being able to have sex/masturbate. You have to shut out every arousing thought.....puke. I'd just like to say though that after I made things really bad for myself. after 3 months, things hadn't really changed much. After seeing many peoples dick injury accounts, it seems to take a really long time to heal things. Good luck if you decide on the surgery. I'm glad you found a doctor that would listen and consider surgical intervention.View Thread
Not busting nuts is not going to inflame your prostate. Maybe you have a prostate infection.
"but for myself I'd rather have a healthy libido with a small lump on my penis than a perfect looking penis with no sex drive."
......yeah, to each their own, this is exactly what I used to think too. Before the horrorfest began. It's not about lumps or perfect penises, it's about injury, inflammation and dysfunction.
In any case, think of all the different situations people are in, think of monks or whatever, not everyone is perpetually ejaculating. Jimmy and Tommy didn't go find a quiet spot to peel one off after the gassing stopped in the trenches at Verdun......
I hate every second of this. All I want to be doing is fvcking. But this is the situation. And I can say I'm 95% sure if I left my dick alone years ago after the initial injury, this would have never happened or turned chronic. I know what doesn't help, and that is touching it. But that's just me.....View Thread
I just typed a reply about the size of Counterso's last post, and accidentally deleted it. Sucks, as I thought it one of my better posts. I also believe Chronic pelvic pain syndrome (non-bacterial prostatitis) causes or makes the lymph congestion more chronic, as there have been a few people here with both and I've noticed others on other sites. I would stay away from pressing on your abdomen searching for trigger points as that was what started things getting much worse for me. I beleive I mistook a lymph node for a trigger point and worked it hard. Things got worse. Stretching my abdomen makes things worse. Even like 4 months ago I didn't like stretching my arms over my head or sleeping like that as the stretch on my abs made the pain worse.
I would personally put this as the worst health problem next to CPPS and fibromyalgia any day. the latter two do not have inflammation and tissue destruction as a cause. the lymph problem does. obviously if someone has INFECTIOUS prostatitis (which most don't), then obviously that is very serious.View Thread
I agree I wish people would come back and report when they get better, it's little to ask.... The cream doesn't make the symptoms get better immediately for short periods. It allows the body to heal itself quicker in the longterm. But I use it on the diffuse hard swelling I have, not on the lymph channel.
I'm pretty sure my dick got so inflamed the skin started peeling. That is the most probable case. My skin over this situation looks absolutely fine now. It used to be somewhat red but not any more. Is your injured spot swollen at all, or just red?View Thread
yeah, it's complicated ( another reason Docs won't listen) I have lymphangitis or lymphocele, it's clear as day when it gets flared up, classically situated just under the glans..but it isn't exactly painful, its somewhat tender. I also have what has to be either an inflamed lymph channel/ or thrombosed vein.....or inflamed dorsal artery, I say this because the thing has a very noticeable pulse, you can see it and feel it, I have video of it pulsing on my phone......Counterso said it could be transferred motion but I don't think so, this thing pulses very noticeably....from where it starts at the base (inside the body) all the way to the head where it curls to the side into where the lymphangitis is. On top of that there was a VERY small tender spot/lump about 3 quarters of the way up the shaft right in line with the inflamed channel/chord......it is this thing that caused my EXTREME misery. As I pressed on it not gently and held pressure a couple times for a minute or so, and it got smushed and went flat. after that about half the topside of my dick got swollen around where that bump was. After that the lymphangitis ballooned and got worse and the hard chord got way worse as well, its odd as they all seem like if one gets bad the other 2 problems do too.
I cannot possible describe how extreme the inflammation was. How tender that spot was, and how crippled and in pain my dick was, and still is to an extent. Counterso once said people in situations like this may exagerate, But not in my case, I was sticking my dick in ice water for like a month to make it less hot. Skin on my penis was peeling off. It looked RED. But if I showed a doctor you couldn't really see anything. The swelling kinda blends in, but the tissue was hard. It's truly an insane situation, for the rest of my life thinking of those first few months will send chills down my spine. Horrific. Orgasms still hurt quite a bit, erections still hurt. If I have either the situation gets worse. If I have any blood in my dick, just kegeling hurts. It's a painful pressure feeling.
I can't do anything physical at all, or else the situation will get worse. I don't even want to have an ultrasound done because I don't want anything touching my dick and I definitely don't want vasodilator drugs pumped in me. I see that as a recipe for disaster. because my erections are facked already, and hurt.
It's quite frustrating when you chronically cannot get aroused or you will feel pain........................ I just wanna say this is the only place I EVER complain about my situation. I figure 99% of people that ever lived have had pretty horrible lives, why should I be lucky.
Also, the steroid cream absolutely works. NO DOUBT. It's obviously backed up by loads of science, IT IS FIRST LINE DEFENSE FOR SKIN INFLAMMATION. YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST GET SOME. I would be way back if I didn't use it, and if I had it from the start I have no doubt I would have chopped the time it's taken me to get this far at least in half.View Thread
1 year, I don't even touch the injured spot to wash it.....lol...no goddamn way. I wouldn't compare your situation to mine, I'm in a whole other ballpark of shlt....(not to downplay your problem) And the real injured painful spot on me isn't the sclerosing lymphangitis, which is the least of my problems. My real bad problem is injured/inflamed skin or fascia, or whatever just under the skin, which is quite hard to see under the best conditions. It's semi-attached to the skin.
I think my sclerosing lymphangitis just sticks around because there is injury/inflammation in the area that doesn't heal.
I gotta head to the states and keep going to doctors until I find one that 1. will listen.... 2. is willing to slice and dice me up. I'm quite confident that my problems could be pretty easily remedied with surgery. My problem is I have so little faith that I could find someone skilled that will help that I just do nothing and hope things get better.
IN answer to your question gratuit, my situation slowly gets better over a long period of time, but who knows if it will continue.View Thread
