possible nerve damage in penis
An_248696 posted:
I was having sex with my girlfriend and she was on top. She thrusted forward and i heard a pop and it killed my erection. I was able to start again and finish. i didn't have any problems for almost a year after another rough night. I slowly started to have problem with keeping a erection. I didn't seek medical attention right away and i don't think it would have helped. no one believed when i did. I started to have pain after i was given a injection for a ultrasound. It started to hurt on my left side of my penis(low left side) I was give a anti depressant to help with the pain and to bring back sensation. I took it and it helped. that's when i figure out it was nerve damage. I went back to my doctor but i was told he didn't take my insurance. I took the medicine for 6 months like the dr told me to. I was wondering do they do surgery on nerve's in the penis and also wondering if i somehow disconnected a nerve when i heard it pop. can you fix a nerve in your penis and is it a expensive surgery.
