venous leak and congential curve
« on: March 01, 2013, 10:58:29 PM »

status summary
** age 21
** ventral congenital curve of 50-60 degs - diagnosed by David Ralph's team in the UK
** erectile dysfunction (self diagnosed) - erections which subside quickly if stimulation is absent, soft head all the time  -> possible venous leakage; have this EQ for AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.

Was diagnosed with congenital curve and when asked about EQ (erection quality) i responded saying it is ok - being unaware of what is considered normal EQ. Scheduled for nesbit procedure given my diagnosis.

However after reading about what is considered a normal EQ i have concluded i have poor EQ and possibly venous leakage. I am unable to visit my doctor again any time soon as my surgery has been postponed for after my 6 month internship in the US which ends in sep 2013 ( i live in the UK at the moment).

Given the above description should I worry about venous leakage and perhaps attempt any kind of treatment while in the US or a visit to a doctor? Is this a matter of urgency and should I act immediately (remember how i noted that my current EQ level has been stagnant for the last 8 years).

I don not know what to do at this point, I know access to medical care in the US is problematic, especially since my stay there is temporary.

Important observation:
Noticed that my EQ is NORMAL IF i press upon my superficial dorsal vein and keep it blocked with my finger. the glans becomes more engorged and the erection subsides much more slowly and the penis is just harder in general (as though too much blood is drained through this vein). Furthermore, my doctor noted, without me pointing out EQ problems, that the surgery will remove a large vein from the top of my penis that drains blood and this most likely will improve my rection. hew was trying to tell me that i won't see EQ decrease but more likely an increase given the surgery.

Question: Can the nesbit potentially fix my leak?

Thank you so much for your help. Any pieces of advice or experiences shared are very valuable to me.
I do not know what to do at this point and feel hopeless. I was unaware of my erection problem, since I've never had sex. I worked so hard, moved to a new life in another country, made money and studied hard, hoping one day i will sort out my curve problem only to realize my EQ is a mess. I feel very discouraged. Pleasing the woman that I love in bed seems just a distant dream to me now.

Let me guess.  I have never heard this in 7 years on forums but I am guessing EQ is erection quality.

I don't think Nesbit have something to do with venous leak.
It is a matter of money, but you have in the US the best specialists to consult with.

I agree that I don't see how Nesbit would help. The Nesbit procedure puts a "tuck" the Tunica to draw one side shorter to straighten a curve. It would have no effect on venous leakage.

If the Nesbit procedure would have correct my ED, I would have already done it. There's nothing that Nesbit can do for venous leakage. At least nothing that I've read it can do. The plaque has to be cleared from the dorsal vein so it can compress normally to trap the blood in the penis. Nesbit doesn't address that issue.
