Penis vein and soft glans and erection injury. Feeling terrible.
I couldn’t post this in the correct forum but I really need to post this. In fact, I am struggling so much at the moment that I am finding it difficult just to write.
I have damaged my penis by foolishly jelqing two weeks ago at close to full erection. The result was a large cord-like vein running just to the right of the middle of the shaft with at least one or two hard knots in it. The vein wasn’t visible but was really hard and stringy and knotted both when erect and flaccid. The superficial dorsal vein was sitting on top looking quite normal so it was most likely the deep dorsal vein that was damaged.
The vein seems to have calmed right down as of about 5 or 6 days ago to the point where I can’t really feel it or any abnormality. However all other symptoms are still well and truly present.
Flaccid: The penis is overall much smaller than normal, and looks drained of all blood. It is “turtling” much of the time. The glans is cold feeling even inside the foreskin and there is noticeably more foreskin hood hanging off the glans as it is not filling like it used to. Even in the shower where the penis would always hang well and be full and plump, it is now a small shadow of its former self. The superficial dorsal vein seems more prominent than before and can be easily “slid” by the finger across the shaft which I never recall being able to do. There is also a bit of a bend to the right going on which I’ve never noticed before.
Erection: Very weak and must be really worked to get to a half reasonable size. The glans isn’t getting any blood into it, and this is certainly not normal for me. Gripping reasonably firm around the base and doing a kegal can push some blood into the glans but the glans just deflates as soon as pressure is released. The overall erection (if it can even be worthy of that description) dies within seconds even if thinking erotically. Morning erections are pretty much non-existent, with the occasional semi-erection (with no engorged glans).
There is a slight burning/itching pain felt at times in the glans (could this be bleeding or something going on in there?)
There are one or two purple veins that appear to have a splash of blue/purple blood coming from them but this appears to be the foreskin and quite superficial.
Finally I must say I am depressed by all of this. It is occupying my thoughts all day every day. I have been a very sexually active man and for this to happen cripples me. It is not psychological – I have done some structural damage to the penis.
Boy oh boy I just wish I could rewind two weeks and never have touched the darn thing! I have read hours worth of forum discussions with people having similar injuries. And NO-ONE has had a full resolution of the problem even years down the track. It scares the bloody hell out of me.
I have taken ibuprofen anti-inflammatories since it happened and applied hirudoid cream to the penis for the past 7 or 8 days which may have contributed to the knotted cord-like vein going down. I am also having L-Citrulline.
However all other symptoms have remained. Thank you for listening.
