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
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
