First Injury - Thrombosed Vein w 2 clots
I’m an idiot. Okay, okay, so I hurt myself for the first time.
I believe I have a thrombosed vein or a lymphatic clot of some sort.
Anyway, it’s on a very small vein situated basically next to my large dorsal vein.
There’s a little clot in the vein about an 1.5 inches from the base, and there’s a smaller clot (or calcification) a little below the base. The smaller one is really hard to find but it’s on the same vein. The whole vein feel stringey and solid, like a guitar string.
I feel confident that it’ll get better, and even if it doesn’t that it’s not a very important vein, but I’ve been pretty down over this.
There’s a little pain, especially in the space between the two clots (where the vein feels thinner).
I found this injury about 6 days ago, around when it started hurting as well. It hurts most when I tug at my shaft.
First I ignored it, thinking it was temporary, then I felt around and found the clotted vein.
What I’m doing about it.
- Taking 2 325 mg aspirin around noon.
- Using moist heat pad for 10-15 minutes 2-3 times/day
- Using EVO after the heat compress
Any other ideas, aside from drinking loads of water?
I really hope this problem goes away.
I made an appointment with a urologist, but it’s March 2nd! That’s three weeks from now!
How I Got It:
Okay, I’ll be honest.. I was using a pump. I stuck to around 5-6 hg for a week and then the pain started.
My routine pre-injury:
- 5-10 mins warmup with heat pad
- 10 minutes stretch
- 10 minutes pump
- 15 minutes jelq
- Shower or few minutes heat pad.
I would milk the pump and sometimes put it in my heating pad.
The pump was a LAPdist cylinder and pump, with gauge.
I’m so ridiculously pissed off at this point.. Hopefully everything will be fine, I really hope I don’t lose this vein!
Anyone got any advice?
Should I not massage it/masterbate/have sex?
Can anything be done if it doesn’t clear up after a month?
