Hello all. I can’t post in the injury section, so I hope this is ok here. I’m asking for help figuring out what it is I injured, and some courage to get it treated. First, the injury. This happened at work. My job at the time consisted of sitting on a forklift 8 hours a day. The ride was rough to say the least. Going in and out of the trailers, the transition from dock to trailer would jar you. After about 6 months, one day I felt a sharp pain in my right leg and penis. I didnt want to tell anyone, tried to be a tough guy you know? The pain lasted about 30 sec-1minute. Then it was a dull ache in my leg, and a dull ache in my penis. I didnt tell anyone for a week. AT that point I went to the company doctor who said I pinched a nerve he thought. And showed me on his computer which one. I can’t remember, I think S4 maybe?? Anyhow for over a month I felt a sort of “lump” behind my scrotum on the shaft area. After this went away, everything was good leg wise, but my penis just didnt feel.right. Hard to explain. This has been about 6-7 months now. My penis still doesnt feel right.I’m thinking this injury is almost akin to a bicylcist who has a compression injury of the penis. Am I on the right track?
I’m sorry this is so long, please bare with me. Right now, right behind the scrotum, and at the base of my shaft(front of scrotum) the shaft feels like a dull ache. Has been slowly getting worse. My size has gone down from 5.7 in girth to right at 5 in girth at the base. I know longer work in that job position. I stand most of the day now. I can no longer get an erection just by thinking of sex, or seeing nudity. Manual stimulation will bring it up, but it isnt nearly the same as before. I cannot keep the erection for longer than 10 minutes. And the dull ache/pain is always there. Because of my former position where I sat down to work, my pelvic muscles are REALLY out of shape. I can stop urine flow, but ejaculate pressure isnt powerfull at all. I believe this to be tied directly to the pinched nerve. If not, I’m at a loss. Cause the ache/pain never really left. It just subsided, but now increasing again. My question is, can someone please point me in the right direction as to what may have happened? Maybe a site that has a diagram of the region? And I’m really ashamed to say this, but I feel embarrassed about this, and am afraid to go back to the company doctor. I know this is not a result of PE, since I quit PE about 2 months before this job. This is just really embarrassing, and sort of depressing. My sex life is at 0 right now. But my gf understands, she just wants me to get it checked ASAP. Any suggestions, or heck, even moral support would be great. I appreciate it. Thank you.
