This is Dr. David
liver cirrhosis can definitely been causing swelling and edema in your legs
I am glad you quit alcohol.
you should get blood testing, and I bet your albumin levels are low.
albumin is a protein made by your liver.
with severe prior alcohol use enough to cause cirrhosis, this is enough to damage blood vessels which carry blood to the penis.
also with bad cirrhosis, you could have low testosterone levels as well.
I am still here.
have you had your testosterone levels checked?
they did numerous blood tests so this not a solution I wish to cancel and be refunded
what solution are you looking for?
to fix your erections?
have you tried medications like viagra or cialis?
yes testerone as I have tried both
and those medications are not working I take it.
then the next step is penile injections like alprostadil to help with erections.
there are injection medications which can go into the penis to help with erections.
medication called alprostadil and Trimix and Quadmix which can cause erections
even when viagra and cialis doesn't work.
how quickly does that work
injection into the penis and then erection.
but that doesn't stop the unfurling I am really not interested in sex anymore as my wife died a while ago and I no intention I am content with looking my family
you are not content with looking my family ?
I don't understand?
with the size of your penis?
about 2 1/2 inches with an erection it was about 6
if you are overweight, this can cause extra estrogen in your body and this can cause your penis to shrink in size.
so to help this, the best thing is to try to loose weight.
not drinking alcohol can help cut out extra empty calories from alcohol.
but if you start to exercise and eat healthy, this will help you loose weight and this will help decrease your body's estrogen levels
and this over time can help your penis size.
why do you keep doing that?
a pill to make your penis larger?
I am defitely not overweight under stone don't know what that is kgs I don't need a larger penis I am sure it hasn't shrunk
you said that you think it seems smaller.
what do you mean by revert back to its previous state?
well that a wild guess as I never measured it possibly I only think it is now I am focused on it
do you have OCD or excessive anxiety which causes you to focus on something excessively?
no what is ocd but am extremely rarely anxious
OCD is obscessive compulsive disorder.
so you have occasional extreme anxiety?
defitinitely not I am not at all compulsive far from everyone tells all the time even in the hospital recently I am laid back with worries andjust content
no worries and smile all the time I am told
but you are worried now about the state of your penis and that it is smaller, correct?
is that the question you have?
I would say worried about it just it means I I have to pull it back to pee which I never had to do other wise if I don't it goes every where
would nt say worried typo before trying to be too quick tying
the penis can shrink normally as you get older
this happens to many men
if it means having to pull back your skin to urinate easier and not spray, then that is a new normal thing for you.
this is not a big serious issue.
you don't need to have more of a circumcision to have the tissue removed.
you might just have to get use to a new way to urinate.
are you ok with pulling back your skin to urinate for now on?
but this is annoying not really it looks a little odd it seemed fine a couple of years ago or so
well, if it is very annoying, you can ask your doctor for a circumcision surgery to cut out more skin around the head of the penis
to prevent it from blocking the flow of urine
but this is a surgery procedure and you will have to heal up from that surgery.
well, it very well could be from your penis shrinking in size over the last couple of years.
it is not blocking the I don't want to face the thought having a procedure if over the course of time but why would it shrink so quickly the size it doesn't seem much smaller if at all I would have thought it would have to have shrunk by 1 to 2inches and that could not be the case
poor blood vessels from prior drinking and poor liver function and lack of sexual activity can all cause shrinking of your penis.
but I have been drinking the same amount for a long time I have had liver function tests the doctors given I have some cirrhosis suggested I give up which will do
liver ok I was able to leave after about 3 weeks but they let me stay as I wanted since coming out I have had no desire to drink
able to leave about 3 weeks?
leave the hospital?
yes but wanted to stay they said medically fit from mid june stayed until a few days ago
are you still there
what final questions do you have for me?
are you saying that you don't think it is your cirrhosis which is causing your penis size change?
yes if it has shrunk I would have it is just I don't understand why this situation has happened the shringage would been very marginal it could possibly have so I not concerned about just why would it happen
ie the foreskin trying to go back
most likely your penis has shrunk slightly over the past few years because of your increased age and worsening blood flow to your penis
which can come from lack of sexual use
and alcohol use
does this make sense to you?
but I can still mastiurbate
that is good you can still masturbate.
you should continue with this.
use of a penile vacuum pump can also help bring more blood flow into your penis.
this could over time with routine masturbation help with your penis size.
exercising and improving blood flow can help as well.
are you masturbating regularly?
you need to be masturbating regularly.
are you exercising?
exercise can help improve blood flow to your penis as well.
I walk a lot
walking around is not enough exercise.
you have to get your heart rate up above 100-130 beats per minute
and take deep breaths to get aerobic benefits from exercise.
I walk at least 1o ks a day play tennis frequently and swim
to wrk and back I do not drive distances less thaa mile
have you had your estrogen blood levels checked?
higher blood estrogen levels could cause your penis to shrink
or lower testosterone levels can cause your penis to shrink.
but at best it could be marginal if it has
if it has what?
the estrogen or testosterone?
you don't seem like you are willing to accept any of my reasons why your penis could have shrank
I am trying my best to help you.
let us say it has shrunk a quarter of an inch or even half which it still wouldn't explain it
you haven't told me the results of your blood testosterone and estrogen blood levels
you say that these levels would be "marginal"
I am not sure what that means.
you should also get blood testing to check your LH and FSH levels
which are hormones your pituitary glands make to send as signals to your testicles to produce testosterone.
these levels could be low as well and could cause your levels to be low which could affect your penis size.
