Question hosp. ruined his penis!!

o.k. hubby was in hosp. this past March for serious op...he had a catheter in and something started to go wrong, his forskin and just the skin on the outside was swellled like it had puffy water on it, his head had disappeared and two doctors worked and worked to get it out, the skin that was swelled was like twisted...oh I wished now I'd taken a picture, cause now we're just starting to try to have sex again and he has this sunken place ring like all the way around his penis, kinda like a waistline is the best way to describe it, it sure wasn't there before, he says it hurts when he gets hard. Now for sure he was having ED problems before, due to blood flow issues which his operation may have helped, but now he is permanetly goofed up, I think we should contact a lawyer, but it's gonna be so embarrassing, but they did it to him, I almost fainted when I seen his penis looking like it did (in the hosp) it was truely awful, I never gave it another thought until lately we've just started trying to have some sort of a sex life (basically I'm demanding it) and now this, he gets an erection, but not the size he used to be and now with this sunken ring around it!! I am at a total loss, if we did sue can you imagine if the media gets a hold of it??!! what to do!! if anyone knows a nurse, can they tell me what had happened to him?

Re: hosp. ruined his penis!!

Well, before you go overboard, why not see another doctor for a second opinion? It sounds like maybe he has balanitis. It happens, and is probably unrelated to the catheter.

"we've just started trying to have some sort of a sex life (basically I'm demanding it)"

This is the part that concerns me. It sounds like you're probably putting an awful lot of pressure on him, which can only exacerbate whatever problem he may have. I think it would be important to see a sex therapist as well as a urologist for his foreskin issues. Sex isn't just intercourse (in fact, intercourse is the very least of it). I have a feeling you (and maybe he) have some misconceptions about sex, and talking with a sex therapist can help you reframe your ideas about sex, and help you learn to communicate better with each other.

I wish you both the best.
