Anal pain sexual dysfunction...
I'm a 31 year old guy. In good shape, I workout, eat decently, no heart issues. As a child I had issues with bowel movements... I would wait 5 days or more before having one, producing some huge bowel movements. As a result I have dealt with chronic constipation for years... I remember resisting the urge to go, waiting until I just couldn't.
Around 23, I started having issues sexually... I found I would have to drink so try and have sex and keep an erection. When I did have sex, erections were weak... And as a result I could go for a LONG time, but never finish unless I finished myself.
I have recently become aware, through self awareness, that after years of doctors throwing me cialis, giving alphrostadil injections, etc, that my issues could be related to my anus instead of my libido, my testosterone, my anxieties or my desire.
Seems I have hemmorhoids, and I notice that when the muscles that contract during erection try to do so, I can't hold that contraction because of the pain/discomfort in my anal area due to my hemmorhoids.
My doctor has suggested PPH surgery... I am very scared of doing this reading stories about it, because I don't want the nerves or muscles causing this damaged further. So as a man I pose this question.... for those of you that had PPH surgery, how did it affect your sexually?
I'm hoping this could be my light... I'm tired of the haphazard relationships I've had because of my uneven sexual nature. Mostly importantly, I'm ready to have children and be married. I've always ran from that because of this issue, and the problems of constipation AND sexual dysfunction are overwhelming... I've gone from being a very macho and blunt person, to being subdued, avoidant and moody, and I have to fight not cry about this sometimes.
I just want to be myself again. I know sex isn't everything, but damn if it hasn't changed me not being the confident person I was back before this. If PPH surgery will removing the burning in my rectum and let things return to normal in both ways, I'm going to take the risk. I just need to know if it ruined your sex life. If it didn't, or if the effects were temporary I'm gonna try it.
