  • Foreskin Restoration Injury Going on 4 Years

    I just posted this on restoringforeskin.org and am mirroring it here as my first post since that site seems to be experiencing technical difficulties.

    Four years ago, back in December of 2017, I was tugging in my grandmother's bathroom trying to keep up my daily routine of tugging.

    I'm not going to explain in vivid detail, so all I will say is that I lost my footing in an unfamiliar environment, and while doing manual method two, accidentally tugged my penis as far to the left as possible with a quick snap until it couldn't go further.

    This has resulted in constant pain in my scrotum, above my right teste. Nothing I have done to prevent the pain, whether it be changing my type of underwear, kegeling, stretching, or more tugging, has alleviated it.

    I can't help but think to Brian Morris' statement, I don't know where, that circumcision activists "trick men into believing there's something wrong with them."

    Do I still feel like a part of myself is missing? Yes. Did I ever have even one iota of issues with pleasure or masturbation before tugging? No.

    At the time, I was angry at Brian Morris because I knew that his words were directed towards Jonathon Conte. If I had taken the words personally and hadn't been ideologically possessed, maybe I would have quit tugging at the right time.

    I went to my urologist, and he assured me that it was a pulled muscle, or something external to the scrotum. If it were a pulled muscle wouldn't it have healed already?

    I can no longer maintain erections because of this pain in my scrotum. I was convinced that if I just kept trying to tug, bought the TLC-X, get on a real routine for once, that this would end, and it hasn't.

    And here I am at 2 AM, woken up after 2 hours of sleep with the pain.

    My question is: how do I fix this? How do I revert the damage? How do I stop the pain?

    That really sucks, I wouldn't wish that kind of thing on anyone.
    It sounds like you need to see a (different, if you want) urologist. Like you said, if it were simply a pulled muscle and the urologist didn't think any more on it, it really should have recovered by now. The fact that its now been so long might complicate things, but it's definitely clear that its not going to get better on its own at this point.
    All I can really do is wish you the best of luck in recovery, and hope that the doctors will have a good idea of what to do.

      I assume from what you said that you saw the urologist about 4 years ago? And it has not gotten better since then? So you have been struggling with this for about 4 years? Without going back to the same urologist? I would think you urologist would want to see you again, since it has not resolved in 4 years. As you say, wouldn't a pulled muscle have resolved in 4 years?

      It may be that your urologist is not well versed in this type of injury, so I also agree that a second opinion would be reasonable. A pain management specialist might be worth going to.

      I think, if it were me, I would go to my original urologist, to see what they had to say. Depending upon how they handled themselves, and what they offered, I might then try and get a referral form them for someone with more experience in your issue.

      For example, if my first urologist was dismissive and wanted to tell me it was all in my head, then I would go elsewhere. Or if I found that they just wanted to remove foreskins, and didn't think they had value, then I would go elsewhere, assuming they were dismissive because of that. So another urologist would be my probably choice. But it really depends upon how the first urologist behaves.

      If a second urologist, or some sort of expert referred by my first urologist, fail to identify a probably issue and treatment, and the pain seems to be the key symptom, then I think I would try and find a pain management specialist and see what they say.

      Sounds like a difficult situation, hope you can resolve it.

      Best Wishes

        Sorry to hear it.

        There's no tricking that I'm aware of. We know what the foreskin is and does, and we know how function is changed when it's missing. And we know what adding more slack can and can't do.

        I hope you get some relief. We want to help and we want to hear how you're doing, but this seems more of doctor thing than a user forum thing.

          That's one of those things where you just have to read your body. If it feels good, do it. If it doesn't feel good, don't do it. Just keep on following the path of least pain and you can usually coax your body back to health without any doctors involved.

          I've never had any luck with doctors myself. All I ever hear is exactly what I already read on WebMD. Maybe get online and search for info on penile torsion injuries.
