well I read there , but let me explain my case, it is something is bitter, my sexual organ still all the night stand, but not desire to do six,and I havn't symptom of prostat or any urinary tract infection, no one has suggested me the treatment, the case is about to 2006 still yet, one doctor advises me to get marriage , but it is not so, my age about 60 years, this had done only thoough the night, and I suffer the pain since that date


This is a rare disorder that my husband has with no curte for it as yet and treatments are questionable. There is a current study running by doctor Xia in Houston [ you can look this up], she suggests treatment that is also being used on the bubbl-boy syndrome which is an injection in the penis which I don't know is desirable by males! There are some suggestions of sleeping tablets,relaxants..that can help for the time being, even codein i think it is (codral) helps. Good luck.


my husband fell and landed on his penis, causing priaprism, after 4 flushes and no relief and kidneys failing, he came home scared, that same day i took him back to hospital and was sent back home to call an make an appointment with urologist, days past til appointment time, after seeing the urologist he noticed that the penis had gotten black then referred him to another hospital for surgery in a day or two(his words not mine) After getting there the new urologist saw there was an imediate need for surgery, the end result was he lost his penis due to gaingreen with a penectomy. We never knew how serious this priaprism was and didn't know what it even was..Don't be mistaken this is serious and can be detramental to any man...
