Aswell as resting it completely for a month I haven’t touched the shaft of my penis during masturbation in 17 months. When I need to masturbate, and we all need to masturbate at some point whether we have a knackered penis or not, I stimulate the glans gently once a week at most.
So I’ve effectively been resting my penis for 17months and it’s made zero difference.
Dude an injury that you have had ( and possibly been making worse ) for over a year does not just heal in 4 weeks of rest. It could take months. One thing is for sure, masturbating does not help and you don’t NEED to do it, especially when your unit is trying to recover !
You have not been resting it for 17 months man, ejaculation resets the process - especially if your problem is linked with the prostate/pc muscles.
Mine is GRADUALLY getting better, at times it goes completely relaxed like it was before all this I.e standing around, sitting down and contracting the BC muscles
But at times ( usually after urination, weight training the leg muscles ) it goes really hard & flaccid. There must be some correlation with this.
