QuoteI had sex with a girl, and during intercourse i felt a sting on the penis. Went to sleep, didn't make much about. Had a slight discomfort sensation in the penis, but no pain. 12h later i woke up with a small hematoma, but no bruising on the right side of the penis. Went to the ER and i was told it was nothing. Ended up having a flaccid ultrasound that showed nothing, and then was sent home. Tried having intercourse 1 week later, and thats when my erection difficulties started.
QuoteFinally went to a urologist that diagnosed me with a small penile fracture, but said that it was too late for a repair. I had to let it heal now, and the damage was done. I ended up going to a lot of doctors in that time period for second opinions and they all agreed on the same thing. I was given Pentox to help with the treatment. My erections were super painful, but eventually stopped hurting. I was left with moderate E.D. I could not sustain my erection, but i could achieve one. Erection substantially improved with pills.
QuoteI tried to have intercourse with a girl, and i was able to achieve and maintain an erection but it felt much weaker than previous ones. I did not take viagra, and ended up feeling my penis bending inside of her again since my erection was not rigid enough. That further worsened my Erectile Dysfunction, and my erections where not as solid as before.Sometime around this month, i saw another Urologist in Portugal that listened to me and provided some support and guidance, but wasn't able to offer much help other than the usual. (injections, pills and or vacuum pump). I also spoke on the phone with Dr. Irwin Goldstein (San Diego Sexual Medicine), who used to (and maybe still does today?) a surgery that might help restore natural erections, in cases of penile trauma, or trauma in the perineum area. I promised to myself that i would make everything possible to go and see him when i had the money to.
QuoteI was fed up with the Portuguese public health system, and given that i had family in Canada, i emigrated here. I worked non stop till February 2016 and i finally had the money to go and see Dr. Goldstein.
QuoteI travelled from Toronto to San Diego, to see Dr. Goldstein and diagnose properly my condition. I spoke with her sexual therapist, and then had my consultation with him in the Office. I still remember to this day how amazing it feels to be properly listened to. Just wow.... I did not want to, but i ended up having an ultrasound diagnostic in his office. 950$ CAD out of my pocket for my consultation and ultrasound... Plus plane tickets.Unfortunately his surgery wasn't for me, since i already had fibrosis in my penis. He recommended i tried injections or pills. I did asked for an implant there, but i was not too pleased with the answers i got, since it was from his assistant i got the answers and she said i would loose length and might have other issues and i was also too young.
QuoteI saw two urologists in Canada. Dr. Greenspan in Hamilton. and Ethan Grober in Toronto. Both where a waste of time. At least Greenspan offered me a prescription for Cialis daily, which i take. Ethan grober didn't even wanted to listen to me properly and dismissed me almost instantly. Literally asked me "what did i want him to do for me....
QuoteI was missing intimacy a lot after being alone with no sex since 2015, and after turning down a lof of girls i eventually caved in and went out for a couple of dates with a girl from my home town. During one of those dates and while we where making out... i had my penis erect in my pants, bent out to the left. She was moving a lot and i felt another slight sting in me penis. My Erectile Dysfunction further worsened, and i lost a little bit more length and gained slight curvature to the left. I totally avoided her, and other girls that approached me after that in anger in frustration.
QuoteI managed to get an appointment with Dr. Gerald Brock, in London Ontario. He does implants as well, and is one of the few Canadian doctors in the area doing so. He did not want to do the implant on me, but he said i was very knowledgeable and he was impressed that i knew about restorex. He offered to give me a sample and also wanted to do a Ultrasound on me for further exploration, as well as he was going to email Dr. Irwin Goldstein to get all my documention from the 2016 visit as well as the exam report.
QuoteI went back to St. Josephs hospital in London for an ultraosound but it did not go according to plan. I was there on time, at the correct location and floor but the assitant did not told me i needed to register so i was there for 1.5 hours waiting, seing patients go in and out till eventually there was no one there. She eventually called upstairs to the 4th Floor, and Dr. Gerald Brock was furious that i made him come down and gave me a huge reprimand. IU had a flaccid ultrasound which, surprise surpise, did not show anything. I did manage to get my Restorex sample that day finally. Sadly, i haven't had the courage to use it still due to concerns with my girth and clamping the device on the penile glans too much.https://www.peyroniesforum.net/index.php/topic,11963.msg110947.html#msg110947
QuoteI went back home to Portugal for vacation, after these 4.5 years of staying in Canada. There i ended up seeing a Urologist that also does Penile implants and is the closest thing there is there compared to the US in terms of treatment for Erectile Dysfunction. A private practice you can go to and get yourself a penile implant. It was a positive consultation and i got to know that it costs around 13.000 euros to do it out of pocket.https://www.peyroniesforum.net/index.php/topic,13002.msg119280.html#msg119280
QuoteI am currently back in Canada. Looking for another job, within my industry that pays more and allows me to travel and see Dr. Eid or Dr. Kramer. I am currently unsure of how to proceed, because i wanted Dr. Kramer to do my implant but from what i understood he does not do appointments before the procedure and trusts his patients to know about their condition and to have done all the tests before. Dr. Eid does have you do an ultrasound and cistoscopy before the procedure to check your urethra has no damage and that is something i would like to do, as i currently have my doubts about my condition. If all goes well, i will be able to see one of them this year and hopefully kick start my implant surgery plan phase.
QuoteI'm glad for you, but also a little worried. I really hope she's worth it and won't hurt you. I personally chose to remain single and keep my secret to myself. I learned to accept not getting laid and not having a woman in my life as this situation would only hurt me more if I had to share it with a woman. I'm also, like you very afraid she will ridicule me or tell people about it or in any way use it against me. I would also be too scared to fall in love as I don't want to experience the highs and lows a lovelife gives me. But I'm a little odd anyway. I know myself and in a relationsship I get jealous, easily hurt and just plain vulberable. In an ideal world I would deal with this by being single and F^@$!ng many different women and not fall for one girl, but because of my penile problems I do not have this option so I protect myself by avoiding it altogether. I hope this all works out for you as I,'d hate to see someone else experience the thing I fear most.
QuoteMy advice is don't change what you are doing.This may turn into a wonderful relationship and become even brighter once you are able to get an implant.Honesty is always best in any relationship, hiding only leads to more hiding. I admire your openness.As I hope it certainly works out for you, she must think there is something in you besides sex, or she would have not been interested at all.Please stop trying to second guess and use what she says as being truthful.You could end up having the best relationship ever, because it will be based on truth, rather than lies.I mean how many movies have you seen, how many relationships have you heard of, where people ended relationships based on lies, rather than the truth.I wish you well, but even if it doesn't work out, be strong as you are a good man, and you were honest.Best wishes,StepOne
QuoteLook Pfract, I'm really happy for you and truly hope it all works out for you and you can have nice relationsships again, but to me it's just not something I want anymore. I may have a very different viewpoint than most of you, but to me personally there's no fun in kissing, dating and all of that. Unless I can actually have the easy no strings attached many different women kind of sexlife I'd like there's no point in trying. All the other stuff will just be like a "tease" to me, but I'm pretty sure I can't find the satisfaction I want anymore. Maybe in some utopian future where my dick gets fixed and I relive my youth as an old man making up for lost years, but the way I'm now I'm glad to be alone. I miss sex, period. All the other stuff I really don't miss at all. I can hardly take care of myself let alone provide for a woman and possibly a kid in the future. I don't want all that and I realize deep down that truly isn't for me even if some of my instincts tell me otherwise. Lately I even sometimes look at young dad's and realize they have to deal with a nagging wife, screaming children, a mediocre sexlife and sometimes even a wife that kinda "uses" the male as a provider puts a grin on my face and makes me realize being alone isn't so bad. Maybe all of this is just a cope, but I really feel that way. I'm happy for you and hope it all works out, but I have a different view on life and being single for so long made me realize that I'm kind of an einzelganger/lone wolf and the only real reason this bothers me is cause I miss sex and also that I'm afraid of what other people might think about me not having sex/relationships. But none of these things really matter and in the end I really don't need it to life a good life. I deal with my sexual needs on my own with masturbation, I try to develop socially in other ways than trough dating and If I can just put the shame/insecurity towards other people aside I'm actually fine with that. Would I rather have a good sexlife? Yes. But that's really not an option in my case so at this point I just accept it and enjoy other area's of life.TL;DR: I enjoy being single, I miss sex but it's difficult so I'd rather be alone and for now I'm fine with it.
QuoteTheraphy is a joke. Been there done that. Still in the withdrawal process of getting off the toxins these "specialists" gave me. They knew I had sexual problems yet both these drugs cause sexual problems. I also had elevated liver enzymes in the past. Both these drugs cause liver damage. Plus they made me fat. I also found out I have low testosterone, but got refused to get treatment for it and they kept telling me to just accept it. I did not now here I am fixing these issues on my own feeling better for the last months then I ever dit working with the therapists. Funny, right?
QuoteAnd no, I'm not gonna act offended. I'd rather just ignore the fact you call me delusional and tell me I need theraphy like I'm some crazy person. But I'm sure you mean well, it's just not helpfull at all. You do you, my friend. Let me do me, ok? And if I sound negative I don't mean it that way. I'm just being real. I feel like I'm less delusional than you actually, but let's just agree to disagree.
QuoteAnd honestly my tone on this forum is a bit dimmer than in real life because in real life I don't talk about this anymore. No use anyway.. here I vent my frustration, because it annoys me that there's no change/development in treatment at all yet many of you act like there SO MUCH you can do about it and so far none of it is helping. I only come here now for the occasional rant and maybe some information about future treatments, but I'm slowly giving up on that as well. So like I said, I'll just accept being alone for now while I do everything I can to fix this.
Quote from: jj21 on May 28, 2020, 08:20:32 AMAny update Pfract?Have you tried the Cialis Daily plus pentox plus 100mg Viag before sex/masturbation combination ?
Quote from: IwillbeatPD on December 26, 2022, 12:57:20 PMI would have to agree with that, which is why I won't have sex. Common sense tells me if I aggravate it more the hinge will only get worse. This is why I think implants are under rated, even for young guys. Sure, nobody wants an implant at a young age with revisions necessary later on. But would you rather go the rest of your life having no sex, or mediocre sex while taking meds while constantly worrying about breaking your penis?I have high expectations for my sec life, and unless Dr Christine thinks it's likely I'll be very close to where I was before this after undergoing ETG or PEG, I'll probably lean toward an implant. There's no way I'm spending the rest of my life worrying about my penis while being stuck on meds.
Quote from: Stepone on January 02, 2023, 08:53:14 PMOhnoohno, I am so sorry for what you are dealing with at such a young age. I can't imagine, but you sound like you have a strong spirit in you. Yes, i can feel the cylinders in my penis.But after a while, I got used to it and they became a part of me. Actually with an implant, your penis becomes larger in its soft stage, it's an added benefit, lol. So even after having an implant for nearly 4 years, I still feel like like I have a semi, aka chub, all the time. Stay strong and keep your spirits positive.Happy New Year! StepOne
Quote from: IwillbeatPD on December 25, 2022, 11:52:23 PMCouple things to say on this:Pfract- Man, that's the first time I read your whole story, and I have to say, very relatable. Many men here are married with a supportive wife, and that really is a different ball game than us young single guys face. Like you, I've always dated alot. After my symptoms started I didn't want to date anyone for a couple months. Then, exactly like you said, I realized it was best to try to act as normal as possible. I truly think isolating yourself or not dating is one of the worst things you can do. So, like you, I went on some dates and realized I could successfully do everything including oral sex without a problem. I take pentox and 5mg of Cialis a day. To JJ's point, I've been experimenting with upping the dose before date to get as rigid as possible and overcome the hinge. I figured this is also good on occasion to get a really strong erection naturally.Anyway, the girl I've been dating is actually 34 and a virgin. Surprising I know. She was waiting till marriage and now doesn't know if she wants to wait, but certainly neither of us are rushing into sex-which is a perfect situation to me while I go through this temporary phase of fixing this. So 110% I applaud you for getting out there and dating. Also I applaud you for your honesty. I don't think the girl I'm dating has noticed the hinge. Or may she has and just figured it was normal for guys to be curved different-who knows. But if we get serious I would eventually tell her what I'm currently dealing with. Any decent girl, or someone worth your time would stick around. I think it would be different if you told her you'd never be able to have sex, ever. I don't think that's the case. We all have options. And as mentioned here-at the very worst you could get an implant and be back to normal for the most part. I do want to try this mix of Cialis and viagra though! I might have to ask my uro to prescribe it to see if that combo gets me rigid enough to overcome the hinge during sex. I'm SUPER nervous about attempting sex because of the hourglass I have. I'd lose my mind if I made it worse trying. For now, baby steps. And if I do have sex I'd want it to be with a girl I've been with a while who would understand and be patient. No way I'm letting some girl hop on my dick and break it lol.
