Customer Question

I had a degloving surgery on my penis 6 months ago (to repair a torn urethra). The skin is still very sensitive in certain areas (painful at times). My urologist doesn't quite know why, he said it could be damage to the nerves. I'm curious if you think this is common after a surgery like this? More importantly, do you think it will get better or is 6 months plenty of time for the nerves to heal? Any insight you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
