Penis Fibrosis Priapism
Can soft erections and penis shrinkage due to penis fibrosis in pyronies disease be treated? And when does it cause permenant dsmage?
What can cause blood flooding in the penis for days after a priapism? If blood enters easily during erection, what stops it from leaving?
My penis retracts two thirds of the way inwards when I become angry, nervous or during fear. Could recurrent priapisms be the reason behind this?
I had stuttering priapisms for 4 and half days. I did not seek medical help Now it stopped and I feel numbness inside penis. What could have happened?
You have described peyronies disease. It is a scarring of the rods of the penis that causes pain, curvature and can progress to ED. Genetics, trauma and some medical problems play a role.
Peyronies is more common in diabetics, who already have risk factors for ed. Unfortunately medical treatments have been disappointing. Surgical treatment is usually reserved for those unable to penetrate. ...Read more
Absolutely: Because of your age, it is best that you consult your parents and regular doctor for close care of your issue. But, if a Urologist and surgeon have evaluated you, you should follow their recommendations. ...Read more
What makes blood stay in the penis glans for a few days after a priapism? What makes it leave later? What can be done to stop it from happening again?
ArteriolarSizeValves: At all locations in body: nothing stays alive without blood flow in capillaries within few cell diameters. Heart moves blood: veins to arteries. Local blood flow controll=size of arterioles just prior to capillaries. Arterioles vary lumen size from zero to ~12 red blood cells, sec-by-sec under brain control 24/7; ↓ing flow vs. Flooding/closing penis-vein-valves; Lookup/study: "recurrent priapism". ...Read more
How likely would a healthy 21 year old get peyronies from slightly rough sex with NO health problems or fibrosis issues. Penis now bends. Not peyronies?
You have asked this question to multiple physicians and received multiple answers: you seem obsessed with this issue: the question is: how rough was the sex? what exactly did yoy do when this happened? What whas done to you? And most importantly: why havwen't you been examined and counseled?

I took a sex pill by the name of cialis. After 4 days I had hard spontaneous priapism erections that lasted for 5 days. Why does my penis feel numb?
Question?: First- how many Cialis tablets did you take? Second- priapism refers to a painful, sustained erection and if in fact, it lasted for 5 days (??)-you would no longer have a penis. The numbness requires examination and certainly abstaining sexually for at least 10 days.. ... (sure you can!) I suggest a urology consultation. ...Read more
Yes, . ..: Hi! PaulH, Leave the thrombosed penile vein alone for spontaneous resolution; be patient. It would not be directly related with priapism. I hope you are slowly swaying away from being obsessed with penile matters. I do know it takes time, but you have to divert your available energy and ability to prepare yourself to live a productive, independent life. Let me know how you have been. ...Read more
I took 1 sex pill by the name of cialis. After 4 days I had stuttering priapism erections that lasted for 5 days. Why penis feel numb. I had 2 erections?
I had stuttering priapism for 1. But for the next 8 days my penis glans stayed engorged. Why is this? What causes this? I had only taken 12 vitamin e.
Priapism: Priapism is a medical emergency. It is unhealthy for the penis to be swollen for such a prolonged period of time. You need to be seen in the ER and treated. At the same time they will try to determine why this happened. I don't think the vitamin E capsules are responsible. All the best and be seen. ...Read more
Genetic disorder: It is a genetic disorder characterized by abnormal sodium channels, which affect a great deal of problems including the respiratory and digestive systems. It is most commonly diagnosed in infants failing to gain appropriate weight, and in children who have multiple chronic infections. ...Read more
Inherited disease: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease that affects the cells lining the lungs, sinuses, intestines, spleen and liver. It prevents chloride ions from crossing the cell membranes properly. This can clog organ ducts. In the lungs, the extra mucus crushes the cilia and leads to more lung infections. Medications can help; in late-stage disease, lung transplantation may be life-saving. ...Read more
Recurrent erections: Priapism describes an erection that remains present even in the absence of sexual stimulation. There are two types: low flow (more common) and high flow (arterially based). Low flow (from sickle cell disease, drug induced, blood dycrasias) results in entrapment of low oxygenated blood in the penis, causing scarring if present over 6 hours. Important to get priapism evaluated/treated emergently! ...Read more
Cystic fibrosis: CF is a genetic disease that from birth causes the body to produce a thick and sticky mucus. This mucus interferes with the ability to breath and digest food. It is life threatening, but with good management people can live into their 40s and beyond with it. ...Read more
Chronic scarring: Idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis is a chronic non-specific inflammation of the retroperitoneum, which can entrap and obstruct important structures, notably the ureters. The average age of diagnosis is about 55 years and the male:female ratio was 3:1. Options for treatment include corticosteroids, other immunosuppressive and hormonal treatment (such as tamoxifen), as well as surgery. ...Read more
Autosomal recessive.: Cystic fibrosis (CF) is not sex-linked, but autosomal recessive. That means both parents can be silent carriers--totally unaware--then each passes down this recessive (inactive) gene to their child. This child develops CF because both copies of the formerly inactive gene (1 from each parent) now have no genetic "brake" (normal dominant gene) to prevent the CF gene from expressing itself. ...Read more
Variable: This depends on the individual patient. There are several hundred CF mutations that have varying degrees of severity. The most common mutation, df508, can cause failure to thrive in infants, recurrent and very serious lung infections during childhood and often pancreatic insufficiency in children. While early diagnosis and preventive treatment have improved, CF is still a fatal disease. ...Read more
Neosynephrine/surger: Treatment depends upon type of priapism. More common is ischemic priapism due to blood trapped in penis. Aspirate, blood will be dark and then inject neosynephrine (phenylephrine). Subject will require shunting surgery if priapism persists. High flow priaism, less common, diagnose by doppler ultrasound, bright red blood. Ice pack and may resolve spontaneously, if not blood clot be injected to slow down flow in. ...Read more
CF is recessive: Cystic fibrosis is a disorder passed thru the genes of both parents, silent in the carrier parent & expressed in the affected kid who has inherited an affected gene from both parents. One mutation (delta 509) is the most common but others occur and variations in intensity do occur. I believe you can have carrier testing to see if u carry a gene, then avoid a starting a pregnancy with another carrier. ...Read more
CF is recessive: Cystic fibrosis is a disorder passed thru the genes of both parents, silent in the carrier parent & expressed in the affected kid who has inherited an affected gene from both parents. One mutation (delta 509) is the most common but others occur and variations in intensity do occur. The defect produces a variety of serious changes primarily in the lungs and digestive tract impairing life. ...Read more
