Jelqing caused permanent damage
This thread will be backed by medical records, tests, and surgeries performed by urologists & interventional radiologists.
*Couldn’t post this in the injury section, mods please move it there*
I’m a 27 yr old male with absolutely no health issues. About 6 years ago, I jelqed with a full erection and immediately thereafter, my erections were never the same. At first, I was confused and didn’t understand what was going on. Without exaggeration, I’ve seen over 40 urologists and interventional radiologists about this issue until I found a few surgeons who offered additional help (not just prescribing viagra and/or pointing to this being psychogenic.
I’ve taken half a dozen doppler ultrasounds, two MRA (angiograms), and had two surgeries. The ultrasound didn’t show anything wrong, but both MRAs showed a venous leak. Immediately after the first MRA, my urologist scheduled surgery (venous ligation and stripping surgery & bilateral varicocelectomy. After surgery, I noticed my glans improve significantly (they were much fuller than prior surgery and more sensitive), however my penile shaft still had issues achieving and sustaining an erection. About a year later, I took another MRA which still showed a venous leak. I kept trying to look for further answers and met with an interventional radiologist who decided to perform embolization and inject glue in the periprostatic plexus. His reasoning was that in this area, by injecting glue, it should help stop blood from leaving but he said this will most likely be a temporary treatment and if it works, I’ll probably need to come back to repeat this procedure if and when I needed it again. I’ve noticed slight improvements immediately after this surgery but about 1-2 weeks after, it seems everything is back to how it was prior to the embolization.
I’m not sure what to do at this stage and I’m pretty desperate for answers. Having sex feels like a chore. Prior to jelqing, I had completely normal erections with full sensitivity and could sustain it for as long as needed. Now I’m lucky if I can sustain an erection for 15 seconds consecutively. I’ve attached all important medical records in this thread for everyones perusal. Really hoping someone can help as this is my last resort.
I went ahead and attached the MRA results, and surgery medical records.
I’m waiting for my interventional radiologist to send me the medical records and will update this thread once received. I redacted any personal information from these records.
