Can Surgery Help Restore Penis Sensation?

Can Surgery Help Restore Penis Sensation?

In most cases, men who suffer a slight loss of penis sensation can take a few good penis care tips to heart and gradually restore their penis sensitivity. But what about those who are suffering from severe sensation loss? For those men, the idea of surgery to restore penis sensation is not far-fetched. In fact, they might choose to eagerly go under the knife if it means they again get to feel the pleasures their body was designed to feel.

On the other hand, any surgery is risky, but especially one that requires a surgeon to work on the penis and surrounding area. Here's what a man needs to know about penis surgery for sensation restoration, as well as other ways that might be worth trying first.

What does penis sensation restoration entail?

One of the most common penis sensation restoration surgeries works on the principle of preventing friction, chafing and any other potentially damaging touch against the penis. To do this, the surgeon works to create a flap of tissue that covers the head of the penis, much like an artificial foreskin. By keeping this most sensitive area of the penis protected and safe from any outside elements, it allows the area to heal the nerve endings that have been damaged. The result is often that a man can eventually feel penis sensation in the area, often enough that he can once again engage in satisfying sensual play, whether with himself or a partner.

The problem is that surgery like this requires cutting, and that's something that can lead to even more loss of sensation. The areas where the skin is removed from will likely be numb for a while, and might even suffer some permanent nerve damage. Besides that, every cut and stitch creates another wound that must heal - and that heightens the risk of infection. A man who winds up with an infection after the surgery could see his penis sensitivity decrease even more.

So what's a man to do about penis sensation restoration?

  • Rather than go under the knife, a man can look to other ways that aren't as invasive. Cardiovascular health matters a great deal, as it takes copious blood flow to make a penis as erect and sensitive as it should be. Paying attention to diet and exercise is a great way to start. It's also important to look at overall health, as things like smoking, diabetes and other health concerns can quickly diminish penis sensitivity.
  • Besides this, it's important to make sure the penis is always protected from potential nerve damage. Avoid anything that might lead to soreness, bruising or other issues that could lead to damage. For instance, always wear an appropriate cup or jock strap during sports, wear the proper underwear, use the best cleansers for sensitive skin and otherwise look for ways to enhance and protect penis skin.
  • Finally, a man who has serious issues with penis sensation can talk to the doctor about potential creams and medications that might help enhance the sensation they do have. Though medications do not work for everyone and are often considered a last resort before surgery, it might be worth taking a pill every day to avoid going under the knife.
  • Another good option for preserving penis sensitivity is the daily use of a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Look for a crème with Shea butter and vitamin E, both of which can keep the skin soft and thus enhance sensitivity. Also look for L-carnitine, which fights against peripheral nerve damage, and can help protect a man's sensitive penis skin from further problems. Finally, L-arginine is great for better blood flow, which can help boost the sensitivity of those nerve endings.

Excessive cold can cause such symptoms. Otherwise if you have any other medical complain like vit. B 12 deficiency, or diabetes or any other nerve problem it can cause such symptoms.

Hello lybrate-user, its a Good news that nothing came out in MRI. But pain, numbness is something that has to be taken care of as its been an year. I would suggest you please start with hot water formentation thrice a day with application of local ointment. But do not massage. Start wearing wrist-finger binder asap to avoid more wear and tear of the muscles. I even suggest you to take 7 days of Ultrasound Session from the Physiotherapist and as the pain subsides immediately start with the Strengthening Exercise for the wrist and finger both. Do let me know how is the pain after 7 days. Thank You Get Well soon.

Your neck is made up of vertebrae that extend from the skull to the upper torso. Cervical discs absorb shock between the bones. The bones, ligaments, and muscles of your neck support your head and allow for motion. Any abnormalities, inflammation, or injury can cause neck pain or stiffness. It will take a little time to clear the stiffness. don't worry. Practice yoga and physiotherapy. You will be alright in around a month.

Get yourself checked by a neuro surgeon. Then if required get MRI done. But before that a doctor needs to see to look for the problem and probable cause.

It is advisable to go for a thorough check up and some tests (CBC, ESR, blood sugar, electrolytes, Thyroid tests, urine routine etc) to come to some diagnosis. She should also take good care of her health. Let her adapt a healthy lifestyle and follow healthy habits as a daily routine. She can learn online about healthy habits (lifestyle changes) especially exercise and Yoga, and healthy diet (balanced diet) and proper sleep. She can also try Homeopathy which is safe and effective and can be taken with other medicines. Homeopathy is natural and improves the immunity without any side effects. You can contact me with all the details for a private consultation if interested in Homeopathic treatment.

Frost Bite Prevention

Frost bite: 

Frostbite is damage to the skin and other tissue after exposure to very cold conditions.

Frostbite usually affects areas like the hands, feet, ears, nose and lips, but can affect any part of the body.

Symptoms of frostbite often start with pain from the cold, pins and needles and numbness.

Tips for prevention

  • Keep the affected part elevated in order to reduce swelling.
  • Move to a warm area to prevent further heat loss.
  • Remove all constrictive jewellery and clothes because they may further block blood flow.
  • Give the person warm, non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated fluids to drink.
  • Never warm up an affected area if there is any chance that it may freeze again. This thaw-refreeze cycle is very harmful and leads to disastrous results.
