Re: Damaged Prostate Running out of options
I am a newbie who is faced with a significant set of problems. Let me start at the beginning. Seven years ago, I had an enlarged prostate microwave reduction procedure that went horribly wrong. Since then, I have had 12 prostate / bladder surgeries to remove growing scar tissue. This continuous growth of scar tissue, and it’s removal, have lead to me having urinary incontinence; total ED; and a retracting penis. I have lost nearly 4 inches in length. I have to wear mens’ pads and a penis restriction ring 24/7.
I have not been able to have an ejaculation since the initial surgery 7 years ago. My urologist has done all that he can. He has offered me a penile implant pump, but there would be additional medical consequences. I also lost one of my testicles due to a benign tumour. Sperm and the other cells in a man’s semen can turn cancerous over a short period of time if not released. My doctor wants to obtain a semen sample from me, allowing him to assess for abnormal cells. At his suggestions, I have tried prostate massages that resulted in more pain. I have tried prostate stimulators, both medical and OTC. I have even tried a stimulator in the shape of a penis. I have tried just about everything. My doctor wants to perform an “electro-ejaculation” on me. This means, I would be under a general anesthetic once again. My last three surgeries were marked by problems coming out of the anaesthetic, resulting in hospitalizations. An electro-ejaculation requires the use of an anal probe that delivers an electrical shock to a man’s prostate. What is left of my prostate will not tolerate another electric-based procedure.
Are there any male members in the Houston, Texas area who have had similar problems ? Any members I could talk to ? Any members that might be able to help me.
Thank you all for reading my post.
