hi, anxiety is a little worked up so have to do photos today i think. they are on the snapfish account.i had this weird feeling while i was taking them, the skin felt like there was this skinny line right in the center of the shaft for a bit. I got nervous because of the "cord like" feeling that is often described by PD patients. But that cord like feeling is just when the penis is flaccid right? In the erect state a plaque would feel like an area that is pressed inwards and not outwards correct?
Yes to the plaque feeling and, again, you don't just wake up one day with an obvious plaque. Full erection without changes in bend or angle. No bruising, no broken vessels, no redness.
ok, so a plaque doesn't feel like a cord when erect but can feel like that when flaccid?
100% correct on all statements.
could one of those big veins that travel up the penis feel kind of how i described?
Yes to the vein and yes to the skin feeling different from time to time. That said, in addition to cutting back on the photo taking, you need to cut back on examining your penis every day.
have to do photos this morning, woke up very paranoid..sorry
Photo check--full erection, unchanged from before. No abnormal bending, angling, no bruising, no broken vessels, no redness.
Since there's no change, there can be no new indent that you can feel.
Your last statement is 100% correct.
ok and you are absolutely positive there hasnt been even a slight change in shaft shape in todays photos when compared to the absolute oldest ones. you are 100 percent certain there has been zero change in shaft shape?
100% certisn--absolutely no change whatsoever.
any chance you could check the snapfish account for bruising or trauma? please let me know if you have enough angles to know conclusively that there has been absolutwly no trauma
Plenty of good angles and no trauma--absolutely none.
you have enough angles to show all areas of the penis?
Yes--enough angles. And your statement is correct.
can we do a photo check this morning? Can you tell me if the first few photos have the same erection fullness in terms of length and width as the other photos in the same album? And if everything in the new album is the same as older albums.
The newest photos show the same full erection with no new angling or bendind, no bruising or broken vessels, no redness. And I'm a little leery of the way you phrased the second question--"something other" leaves a lot of room for conjecture.
examples of "something other" would be blood in superficial veins (not inthe tunica) blood in the spongiosum etc. So basically tell me that if the length and the width in the photos is the same then if I felt like the erection is less hard this would have to do with blood in superficial veins or spongiosum and not with blood in the tunica- so looking at those photos, even though i am not quite as hard as always, would definitely let you know if there was PD or not because the tunica is just as stretched, filled with blood, and shows its shape just as well as in all the other photos
OK--still very wordy. If you felt it were less hard that wouldn't be from less blood in the tunica so it wouldn't indicate PD
not sure we told understood each other there.
It's not that we don't understand each other, it's that you just don't seem to be able to ask a simple, short-worded question and the words you add make a simple yes or no confusing to you.The length and width of the new photos are exactly the same as all the previous photos.Hence the tunica is just as stretched and just as filled with blood.Thus the difference in feeling of hardness is the level of blood in the superficial veins or the spondiosum and not in the tunicaThese photos hence are just as tood at showing me that there is no shaft shape shift that has just occurred.
ok great, so you can guarantee me then that my tunica shape is the exact same as it has always been since we have been doing these photos? And you can guarantee that no new plaque has developed?
Guaranteed--the tunica shape is exactly the same as it always has and no new plaque has developed.
Yes--the level of blood in the superficial veins and the spongiosum varies with erection and thus can have different levels of hardness feeling
hi can we do a really careful photo check? I think it might be going every so slightly more to the left? very slightly though. Please let me know if it is
I looked very carefully at the new photos. Absolutely no difference--full erection and no change in angling or bending
Obviously if you try to use your abdomen as the reference for determining the angle of the penis, as the abdomen might change position a little it would make the penis seem more angled. But, again, there's no change in the actual angle of your penis
i fell asleep on my couch and was curled up in the fetal position. Again i had a partial erection that couldn't expand further because of the position of my shorts.
We've gone over this time and time again. No damage occurs to the tunica from a scenario like this. The blood just fills what it can and stops at that point.
so blood would never try and enter into the penis if there is no room for that blood because the penis is being squished from the outside?
It tries in the sense that there's a partial erection, but it won't push against the resistance and try to force more blood in. And, for maybe the tenth time, no what you're describing never causes damage and it happens to all guys at times.
any chance you could just check the snapfish account for a bruise to ease my mind? sorry
No bruise, no broken vessels, no redness
so definitely no signs of trauma at all? everything looked perfectly unharmed? it is 100 percent correct that no trauma was inflicted on my penis anytime recently? and by recently i mean within the last few days
Definitely no signs of trauma. 100% correct--no trauma was inflicted on your penis anytime recently--within the last few days.
hoping we can do a photo check at the snapfish account this morning?
Since there is no difference in angle, no need to question whether weight gain and surgeries to the right side would change the angle (which they wouldn't anyway). And a plaque or curve at the base would change the entire angle of the penis. Photo check--full erection as before, no new angling or bending, no bruising, broken vessels or redness.
ok, so you could see a photo of just say the top half from the top down angle and be able to tell if a change in shaft shape has taken place?
No that doesn't make sense--the penis shape and direction can be seen from looking at the penis itself without trying to relate that to any landmarks like the abdomen. And no pushing one way or the other by the vagina would ever cause any damage, micro or otherwise.
im having trouble describing what i'm saying i guess. Is it possible for my stomach to stick out at a different direction after surgery? Because my stomach heads out to the right now when it gets fatter
What do you mean exactly by saying your stomach heads to the right? And enough with complicating the vagina question--no "pushing" of the vagina on the penis would ever cause any trauma or damage.
when my gut expands instead of sticking straight out it is angled in a way that it goes slightly more to the right
That's basically a gentle push of the penis and that could never cause any trauma.
I still don't understand the gut question--how can you tell it's angled?
ok, its a gentle push of the penis, but what if you are having sex for a long time and it is in that position where the vagina has "centered a penis that heads out from the body to the left". Does what im describing impact the tunica at all? Or is it just the skin and ligaments that change position?
I'm just not going to answer this more than this one last time, so don't go on with it--even if the vagina "centered" a slightly left headed penis for any length of time that would never cause any trauma or damage. As for the gut shift--that's just the way you're built and not from the surgery.
but thats not what i asked, i asked if the tunica is impacted by that "centering"? So the shaft is straight but the penis heads out a bit left and the vagina centers it. So to me that seems like it moves the tunica but doesn't involve any bending or mishaping of the tunica, is that correct?
The tunica is not impacted by that at all. Stop beating a dead horse--seriously here, this is just your OCD running around in a loop.
i'm just trying to fully understand why it doesn't.
What's not to understand? Then only thing that's affected is a little push on the suspensory ligament at the base of the penis. The tunica is not impacted at all.
ok, and when you say that a plaque near the base would cause a change to the whole shaft, that means that you would be able to tell if there was a change in shaft shape even if you just got a picture of the top half of the penis?
Yes-- all I need is the view of the head of the penis and comparison to previous photos. There has been absolutely no change in the angle of your penis.
by that do you mean you need a view of the head and a bit of the shaft?
Yes--some of the photos only show the head and the shaft just below that but that's more than enough to determine whether there's been any angle change.
ok, sorry im having a rough day. Are you sure its not any skinnier near the base in the newest photos? like maybe its doing an hour glass thing?
There is absolutely no change whatsoever in the base
really? I looked at the photos jsut now (which I try not to do) and it really looked to me like the base was skinnier in the newer photos.
100% certain--absolutely no change in the base, shaft or angle.
ok, do you think the reason why when i look down on it it seems to be going more to the left has to do with the weight gain? And while this wouldn't impact the penis angle itself it would impact my stomach, groin area etc. so that when i stick my groin out to look down on it the muscles i'm using sort of put things in a different place because of the excess fat. So since my stomach is bigger and sticking out to the left, and maybe some pubic fat going out to a different angle that this will make it look like the penis is going out more left than it really is?
Yes--if you're trying to match the erection to any landmarks on your stomach and the stomach is pulled one way or the other it would perhaps appear to you that the angle has changed when it really hasn't.
it just seemed like the penis head wasnt staring straight up at me tho, like it was heading out more to the left. maybe it was an optical illusion? or perhaps when i suck my gut in and stick my groin out the change in weight causes the penis to be angled further left of my face when i stare straight down at it?
100% guarantee with 100% certainty--there's not been even a slight change in your penis angle.
sorry, this whole thing about it looking more left has freaked me out a bit and i'm having a bit of an attack.
Yes you would see a more rounded area opposite the plaque and you don't have that. We can't keep going on with this--your photos show absolutely no abnormalities--no new bend, no rounding of just one side.
Usually plaques bend the penis towards the side of the plaque. And, yes, if there were a bend at the base I would be able to see an increasing rounding shape on the opposite side as high up as just below the head of the penis.
ok, so pd causes a "curving" and never a straight angle point of deviation the kind of which can be accurately measured with a protractor?
A curve and not an acute angle. 100% correct
ok great, and this should be the last one:
Sorry--too many words and a somewhat unintelligible question--can you simplify it?Dr. Chip41135.7411826389
im not sure what doesnt make sense in that question. what part isnt clear?
Can't help you there--it may be clear in your head but your questions sometimes have multiple parts and it's difficult to get at exactly what you want to know. Try again but with many fewer words.
basically what i would like to know is if the same "curving" and "rounding" would be present if the plaque is located on the part of my tunica that is hidden in my body? and that even a plaque there wouldnt cause an acute angle bend?
Yes the curving or rounding would be present even if the plaque were hidden. And your second statement is 100% correct
great. and by that you still mean that a plaque on the part of the tunica that is always located inside the body? and not just on an area that is hidden in the sense that you cant see it in the photos?
Yes--on a plaque on the hidden part of the tunica. And it would be rare but it would cause a shaft shape change. Yes--a penile implant could straighten out a curved penis even if the plaque were in the hidden area.
great thanks. Sorry, rough day.
No such condition and the erection is pointed in the exact same position it always has
ok so that is something you can measure? the angle at which is comes out from my body? so not shape or curvature, but just how it comes out from the body? pls let me know you can judge that based on the top down angle photos i send
Yes I can judge it with the top down angle photos. And, yes, the angle can obvious be measured at where the base meets the body. Listen, this page is six days old with several of my answers. You need to rate one of those and start a new question otherwise it ties the system up for too long.
