Buster's Injury and Sabbatical
Sadly it seems I now have a Dancer. That is, an injury reminiscient of Dance’s famous injury, although mine has occured from simple hanging whereas his was more complex.
Basically what has happened is that after one day back into hanging (after a 9-10 day layoff after overtraining) I have reaggravated what must have been an injury beforehand that I did not assess as an injury (from inexperience). We thought it was just overtraining but in hindsight I think I had injured the susp. ligament. I figured starting at 2.5lb and working back up to 5lb (I had been up to 7.5lb) would be OK, but apparently not.
The issue with the injury is that the top base of my penis is puffy (as before) and the ligament became inflamed and large after this AM’s session (my last). The area is sore if I moderately pull my penis. I have to be a bit ginger with it when urinating. Same symptom as before with the pain, which tells me it never really healed. HANGERS - if you have undue pain in the base, you need to stop!
I am going to take one month off and see how the ligament feels under stress after that time off. If by mid-August it’s not healed I will keep adding 2-week increments of rest. Aside from Kegels, I will be doing basically nothing (except perhaps some light squeezes for circulation - nothing to stress the ligament or base area). I am using ice now and probably will continue for the next few days until the swelling has stopped.
I am not sure about my presence on this board during this coming rest period. I already know what a mental battle it is to just rest and desist from PE, so perhaps reading the boards would push me into thinking I am healthier than I truly am. We’ll see. As much as I’d like to be here and help out and jabber and what not, I have to take the safe approach to my longterm PE future. I have had an injury and reinjured it now, so I know how vital it is to have complete healing. I think my body will do it’s part; it’s just my mind that I have to concentrate on. If my penis could talk, it would probably be scolding me. Talking Penis or Talking Glans- now there are a few forum names! I can’t understand why someone hasn’t chosen ‘Stands with a Penis’?? :D
At some point in the next week I will make an official injury post in the Injury Forum about Sore Ligaments based on this experience. I’ll wait until I see how the icing and so forth affects it.
Folks, I hope it all goes well for you. I will probably be peeking in from time to time, but if I ever post, PLEASE someone remind me from time to time to not start PE too early! I know I’ll need that reminder.
