Default Neuropathy in penis/scrotum from hernia

I suffered a herniated disk at l5 s1. I had bad sciatica and complete numbness on half the penis/scrotum. I saw a few doctors and am normal urologically and the herniated disk i. I have done physical therapy and have been seeing a chiropractor. My sciatica is almost completely healed and I have recovered some in the genital area, but penile sensation still is not normal. It bothers me immensely particularly during sex and just walking(feeling the strange sensation against clothing).

I am 21 and perfectly healthy otherwise, slightly high bp, no signs of diabetes.

My leg EMG's were normal, it seems the doctors don't really have a way to test this area as I have already asked a few.

I saw the advice about b12 on here and my chiropractor has me taking large amounts of vit C, b6 (although i heard too much can actually cause this issue), and some other supplements.

Right now it feels like one side has something strange going on and has very little fine touch response, the top and bottom arent normal either.

Any advice. I kind of wished i got back surgery as soon as possible to minimize the chances of permanent damage but none of the doctors wanted to do it because i am young.

I'd ask at the Men's Health forum too. Some guy might be reading there:


I think a trial of Viagra might help. (increasing circulation may be an answer). You might not need a large dose either.

This raccoon has come out yesterday since the snow recently melted and can't decide which cherry tomato to eat first. Hubby put them on the feeding bench yesterday morning. (he doesn't like them). They were all gone by this morning.
