Happy to report mine has improved as well. For me the cream, gentle masturbation and hot baths seems to have worked. its still there but not as bad - im just afraid when i do resume normal intercourse it will come back again and set me back another 2 months and then this pattern will keep repeating itselfView Thread
Ok but in the end i have to do what works best for me. i mentioned gentle sexual activity did not cause problems and in fact helped. the vessel is now a bit softer and shorter. i will abstain for a few weeks until i see my GF again and then try it again.
I realize a man can go months w/o ejaculation but i have had prostate issues for 10 yrs and if i dont unload periodically i get very uncomfortable. i developed a prostate inflammation when i was 27. it went away but it has never been the same and if i hold it in too long it acts up.View Thread
Thanks for the input. I went to a second urologist for another opinion yesterday. The first told me it was lymphatic in nature, this guy said its not a lymph vessel but probably a blood vessel with a clot and that i should take baby aspirin. He also said it could be peyronies scarring, which makes absolutely no sense. Hes an older doc (45 yrs in practice) and maybe going senile.lol Either way both doctors said i do not need to abstain from sex and to just be careful. Im curious as to why you are so adamant about abstaining and what you are basing this information on and if other people substantiate this. so far you are the only person that is suggesting complete avoidance of sex. Also its impossible for me to not masturbate every 4-5 days. i get backed up and it causes discomfort if i dont release. Lastly I am going on week 5 and it appears like the vessel is getting a tad shorted in length but the hardness in the center is still there. More input would be appreciated - thanksView Thread
hmmm- not so sure about that, it feels and looks a bit better since having gentle sex and stimulation. i think i have to agree with what another poster wrote. since lymphatic vessels have no valves like veins they require motion and activity to facilitate drainage. keeping things in motion in theory should help facilitate healing as long as its not excessiveView Thread
So I had some gentle sex with my girlfriend the last few days. thankfully it didnt bother my lymphangitis, but it has been approximately 1 month now and I still have it. it actually felt like the gentle sex helped it- maybe the massaging softened it up a bit. anyway, i wont be seeing her for another month so i wont touch my penis until then. but again my concern is that this will not go away. what else can i do? i purchased that herbal cream someone suggested - cant tell if its helpingView Thread
So its week # 3 and absolutely no change in the lymph vessel. Im seeing my girlfriend next wednesday-sat and when im with her i usually have an erection nonstop (lol) and we cant keep our hands off each other. theres no way im cancelling so what do I do?View Thread
Thanks for the feedback! So if there is scarring what type of impact can that have on the penis even if its restricted to a small vessel? Also i did go to my urologist the other day and he didnt seem overly concerned. he didnt use the word sclerosing lymphangitis. and when i asked about sex with my GF in 2 weeks he told me to just take it easy and not do anything too wild. Any additional feedback with this new info?View Thread
so what do you suggest I do? I just started a relationship. how am i supposed to go months without sex and no erections? I get an erection every time im near my girlfriend. so what are you saying...just break up with her and sit in my apt all winter by myself?View Thread
