Injury story

JGP06, have you also considered the possibility of damage to bucks fascia?

Hmmm the bucks fascia..

Going on the link you attached this is the superficial layer of the penis, above the deeper Tunica albuginea.

This may sound strange, but since the incident, I’ve noticed that my penile skin and the actual penis seem quite out of whack of each other. Can’t really explain that better. But whereas before, the skin and the penis seemed to work together. Perhaps this bucks fascia layer has been damaged.how can this be checked/scanned for?

The pdf link you attached portland is from 1982, are cavernosograms still widely used/available?

I’m guessing that they are still used, I would need to research that further or speak with my andrologist. With regards the fascia, I’m not sure, but a test must exist.

The skin to my penis also seems out of whack with the penis. It has also lost it’s elasticity. If I lie down it seems very dead in flaccid state, almost like it is not being supported, whereas before it was elastic and had a tough outer coat to it. It also seems like there might be a little internal bleeding. Whatever the problem is, I am certain that it will be located and treated, it is just a matter of patience.

I found this link to be very interesting, and somewhat alarming.

It points to soft tissue damage..

In particular..

"Theory is that after some prolonged masturbation, we
Damaged the soft tissue in our penises. The damage may not have been
Severe as fibrosis, but an intermediate condition between healthy and
Damaged soft tissue. This prevents our soft tissue from properly
Relaxing when it needs to and results in erectile dysfunction.

When we have a lot of phsycial stimulation, more blood is forced into
The penis. However, the penis fails to seal this blood off, becuase
The tissue is damaged and cannot fully relax. We therefore cannot stop
The ‘physical pumping’ required to keep the erection. That is why when
We stand up or let go, our erection collapses.

The feeling of pressure or ‘tightness’ also comes from the soft tissue
Damage because the smooth muscles are not able to relax properly.
Perhaps they are in some state of ‘contraction’, whcih is why they
Feel tight. This feeling of ‘contraction’ (as opposed to relaxation)
Is also why we can’t get proper erections. Also, before all of this,
When we need to go to urinate, we would often get an erection (this is
The over-filled bladder theory and is why we usually get erections
When we need to urinate in the mornings - morning ‘glory’). Instead,
We feel tightness, because as the blood rushes in and the smooth
Muscle will usually relax, the damage prevents it from doing. The
‘Contracted state’ is felt as a “tightness”. This damage is also why
We don’t feel that as much sensation during sex.

The slightly increased firmness of the penis in the flaccid state also
Could result from this intermediate condition. The soft tissue damage
Prevents an Erection because the muscle tissue can not fully relax.
However, it also means that the muscle tissue cannot fully contract to
It’s normal state and is stuck in between. Therefore, the penis will
Appear to be slightly bigger, or firmer. The most extreme form of this
Is fibrosis, where the cell cannot relax or contract, making the penis
Hard in a flaccid state, and making erections difficult. Our damage is
Intermediate andt therefore not so severe.”

Above link doesnt seem to work portland ^

Did you mean the part on that prevent-rsi site about connective tissue?

Just another point that may be of interest to people suffering from this/ or similar problems. I noticed that when I started to apply a cold compression to the area (treating it like a soft tissue injury) I had some improvement in terms of regaining some structure and reducing inflammation. I feel this definitely helped me move my injury to the next (better) level.

An extract from the article

Connective Tissue is tough, strong tissue that is the support system of the body. All major systems in the body are
Surrounded by connective tissue. Healthy connective tissue is flexible and elastic.What is fascia?
Fascia is the name of some of the connective tissue in the body that connects body parts to each other. Fascia is
Wrapped around all of the parts it holds and keeps them suspended in place.How does fascia respond to Repetitive
Strain Injury and other body injuries?
Fascia binds to protect. If injury to the body occurs, the fascia contracts, thickens and loses elasticity to protect the
Injured part. If you have had surgery or been wounded, you can see what connective tissue can do when you look at your
Scar tissue. A scar is an external example of what connective tissue does to protect and repair. Fascia binds on the inside
Of the body as well when our bodies are strained or injured. Body experiences that can be felt are stiffness, pain,
Discomfort and reduced movement capability. Repetitive Strain Injury is one of the injuries in which connective tissue
Tightens and binds. Once this binding occurs, treatment is required.What treatments are available for tightened connective
Tissue?
Fascia only works one way automatically. It contracts but does not release. Releasing fascia requires methods that will
"Unbind” the fascial tissue.
- Fascia can be released with the assistance of a health care practitioner who has been trained in myofascial release.
- Self-care is possible as well. Stretching and movement can release the fascial binding in our own bodies to return the
Tissue supported by the fascia to a healthy state

Wow, congratulations!

Ill definitely look into this.

I have my urologist appointment in around 10 hours. He is one of the top specialists in Australia.

Also, how long after your injury did you start applying a cold compression?

I see you injured yourself roughly 6 months ago.

I just wonder whether a cold compression will do much for me 2.5 years down the track.

Good luck with that. I hope that you get some positive answers to your questions. It would be interesting to see if he believes that this type of soft tissue injury can be corrected.

I had the initial injury in October. I basically had a clot in the soft tissue on the left hand side about 1/3 of the way down the shaft. In addition to this I had a thrombosed vein running through the shaft (this appeared a week after the injury). I did not have any ED problems until about 3 weeks post injury. One day in early December I woke up with a very dark penis and the insides had appeared to turn jelly like. My conditioned worsened and had a waste deformity and the structure appeared to fall out of whack. I started to apply ice throughout January (when my healing seemed to plateau). My erections have continued to improve since February (they were rubbery and out of shape, now, at times they can be normal). I have had nocturnal erections most nights for the past 2 weeks. I have a long way to go in getting/ healing the tissue damage, but I am positive that it will return to a healthy state, but concede that there may be some deformity. I have also recently changed some nutritional supplements, which I believe will speed up this process.

Thanks for that info portland.

Is your assessment of clot in the soft tissue and thrombosed vein based on self-diagnosis or practitioner diagnosis?
