Hello I am 20 years old, and through years of masturbation without lubrication I have lost feeling in most of my penis is there a surgery I can get to restore it
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

You don't need surgery to resolve it. The lack of sensation goes back to normal on its own. That's how the sensation in the penis works. If you stop masturbating then it always returns. There are no cases in medicine where it hasn't returned. Surgery wouldn't be needed for it.

I haven't masturbated in a month and I notice no change how long do I have to wait
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

It depends how long the numbness been there for. If it's been there for a few weeks then it'll take a few months for the nerve to heal back up. But if the numbness has been there for a few months then it can take 1-2 years for the nerve sensation to fully return back to normal.

Is there a way I can get surgery to speed up the process because I just noticed the problem but is been going on for years.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
