I am only in my 20s and I noticed the sensation on one side of my penis/scrotum lessening out of nowhere. I went to a few doctors and got nowhere, eventually requesting an MRI myself, finding i had a herniated disk at l5/s1. I also had a lot of sciatica. I had surgery on the disk about a year after the onset, after trying chiropractors, pt, etc. Anyways, the surgery seemed to help, however I never did gain full sensation. I waited about a year, tried a little of everything, and went in for another MRI. I do have another minor herniation, but my surgeon doesn't think operating on it will help anything. We tried epidural shots and they seem to help a slight bit but wear off quickly. I can still get erections and orgasm just fine, so I keep getting blown off. I went to a few other docs/ urologists for a second opinion and they told me to try it. Im wondering if i should have a revision to fix the minor herniation now. I am perfectly healthy otherwise. I am worried that another surgery might not heal as well and leave me in bad shape. The first one was easy to recover from, but it might not be the case again. Anyone have any input, ideas to cope, similar situations?
