Customer Question

I have a medical question about urology, not something that happens very often I don't think, need a good expert on the subject of the penis

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

Shouldn't I register first or something?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Is this automated? hmm

Anyway, here's the story. In 2012 I went into a urology clinic with an issue of a varicose vein in the scrotum. Had some help at first, tests for infection etc (all came back negative). Then what the doctor did changed something permanently. He used a penis pump on the unerect penis saying that enlarging the veins would help with it somehow. The varicose issue went away on its own with time but a year later the nerves in the glans were all damaged and most of the sensation from there is gone. Do you have any opinions on this?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I would like to know what can be done in terms of imaging (MRI or such) to visualize the nerve damage and if there are any tools that can be used for repair (peripheral nerve regeneration).
Urologist: Urodoc, Doctor replied 2 months ago

I'm opting out so either a Urologist or Neurologist can help you further to discuss with you regarding nerve damage.

It can take some time.

Thanks for your patience.

Okay, if it's a Neurologist I hope he knows the penis really well. Thanks for the response.

hello Dr Ross Im a urologist. Unlikely a penis pump caused nerve injury its a treatment used for US. If there was injury it would be a bruise or stretch and peripheral nerve regenerate inly the spinal nerves don't . i hope that helped if damage occurred it would have been noticed that day if it was slower there is another medical issue present, ratings appreciated

Ask Your Own Urology Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Actually there was a stretch noticed right after the procedure, as the penis no longer shrunk to as small a size when unerect as previously, and some of the dorsal veins that go sideways became more prominent. I don't think there was any other medical issue that could have caused the nerve damage, since that was the only thing that happened around that time related to that area.Anyway the cause is not that important, what is important is how it can be fixed. There is partial sensitivity still there so the nerves that are in question must be located in the glans. Can the damage be visualized? Are there neurological treatments available to help regenerate them? Maybe something is being pinched or blocked somehow? What about cell or tissue transplants? Where can I read more about the anatomy and neural function of the glans in detail? Thanks for the response otherwise.
Urologist: Ross, Urologist replied 2 months ago

penile surgery can mnot fix or diagnose anything it has to heal by itself with time
