Hey man, thanks for the post. And you're right, stress slows healing. My basic advice for you is. If it doesn't get better in X amount of time, get the bloody thing cut out, problem solved. If you have a visible inflamed lymph channel, and that is the problem, then that's not a real big deal from where I'm sitting. There has been talk here that taking out a lymph channel may have negative consequences. Well, obviously if the channel is inflamed and it isn't moving waste in the first place, taking it out isn't going to make things any worse than they are now. And it gets rid of the inflammation. Problem solved. My problems are more complicated. I have the SL, and a hard symptomatic lymph channel that's hard to see, but also fascia, or whatever just under the skin that is inflamed, slightly swollen that just won't heal, and I'm talking an area about a few millimeters wide. It's insane. A situation that is very hard to see, and I just don't know how to go about getting a doctor to listen as I've never read of such a situation before.
I have not jerked off or had an orgasm (that didn't hurt) in almost 16 months. Go that long and see how you feel about things. And this ain't my first rodeo with dick pain. I have had this injury for almost a decade now(not this bad though), for the simple fact I had chronic pelvic pain syndrome and I already had dick pain, erection pain, ejaculation pain/pain after ejaculation as well as a whole plethora of other pain/other symptoms from that. So I didn't know I was injured, even though I went to multiple clueless sh1T for brains urologists just to make sure, that didn't help me. And I've basically been ill for half my life with just a myriad of health problems, and I'm real sick of this sh!t. I have my other problems under control now, other than my dick is totally fvcked.
Though I guess sclerosing lymphangitis and other dick injuries are a better thing to have than lymphatic filariasis. That is a consolation.View Thread
Counterso, maybe you missed it and were referring to the pearly penile papules, but in 10tonnes picture it looks like he has a lymph channel inflammation (or something) right on the glans to the right of the frenulum......that does look strange.View Thread
Don't touch your dick at all man, please, for the love of god. It sounds A LOT like what I have. Almost exactly. Sure throw up some pics somewhere. I'd be interested to see. I'm sure I have more pain/tenderness than anyone, but you can't even see the goddamn fvckin SH!T, or I would have been putting up pics, the pulsing tender chord can be seen on video on my camera phone, thats about it. just the slightest goddamn swelling can DESTROY YOUR LIFE. I have for a long time pulled the skin back so I could more easily see the swollen tender spot and gauge it's healing, but have recently realized even that flares up the situation. .......................I grow weary of this. Truly.
....................Your problem doesn't sound like peyronies, and if it is, you have to be on that sh!t quick. ultrasound quick, find a doctor that will prescribe pentoxyfilline quick. Tom Lue being the best bet. Most of these Uro's are sh!t at everything. So go to a good one.View Thread
So what do your urologist buddies say to do if this does not go away Counterso?..... I mean, I keep hearing NO SURGERY, but obviously one cannot simply live forever in this nightmare. And if one has an inflammatory condition festering, without end, and with pain, then I think it's the urologists duty to figure something out.View Thread
I think there is something you guys aren't grasping here. Counterso has many times made the point that if you aren't in pain, it probably isn't sclerosing lymphangitis. I myself disagree, I think at first it can be painless but after a while of messing with it (sex/masturbation) will flare it up. But I guess that's besides my point. What I'm trying to say is if you guys aren't in pain, and you've waited it out for some time, then yeah, by all means go get laid obviously..... See myself, my dick hurts, you cannot possibly understand the horrific nightmare that has been the last year of my life (there are much worse nightmares, but this easily qualifies).....Don't compare your situation to mine or any other long time poster. And this for me is more than SL, that's the least of my dick pain problems, I just post in this thread. I cannot possibly try to have sex or my dick will be TOTALLY FVCKING DESTROYED, you don't understand. I'll tell you I sure would like to, it's all I think about all day long, is how fvcked this is. This is not a psychiatric problem, this is mine and others reality. I really feel bad for that dude in the other thread here that left the cock ring on his dick and fell asleep.View Thread
To the guy asking about caffeine, I don't consume any.
Hey Thatguy, I was really hoping that things were getting better for you man. I just can't stand the thought of anyone else having to go through this. How long has it been since you noticed things haven't gotten progressively better? Anyway, the only thing I can think to say is DO NOT out of frustration go whack off or try to have sex and make things worse. I'm shaking my head as I write that. This is retarded......
One thing we got going for us I think is that what is happening to you and I is so strange and abnormal, IT HAS TO HEAL, if given enough time. IT HAS TO. It's not like the corpora cavernosa are broke. THE PAIN HAS TO LEAVE SOMETIME. THE INFLAMMATION HAS TO HEAL.
Either way I'm gonna clutch to that as long as I can......what else is there.....
He doesn't mean there is a method or test, he just means the doctor looks at it and can tell the difference, like you can tell the difference between a British accent and that of someone from Kentucky. Unfortunately, you will just have to go to more Urologists, I and many others know the frustration intimately.View Thread
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
