Urology/Fractured Penis


I realize now after 8 yrs that I suffered from a fracture during sexual intercourse.There was a pop,pain,and swelling that followed.I undoubtedly know now how severe this was.I have slight curvature and unable to maintain an erection.I want to know if there's any hope to correct this problem through surgery or medication?What are my options?


Your options are the same as anyone else's.  Start with an appointment with a urologist.  A trial of medication like Viagra is reasonable.  If this is not successful, we still have other treatments like external vacuum pumps, MUSE and intracorporal injections.  If all else fails, a surgical implant can be done.  Those are your options.  Now talk to your local physician or consult a urologist to get the process started.
