My boyfriend of a year was on dialysis for four years before having a kidney transplant five years ago. He said that after the dialysis he noticed shrinkage in his penis but there has been much more significant shrinkage after the transplant. He's too embarrassed to go to his family doc about this issue, because he doesn't want the secretarial staff (who have known him for years) knowing what the problem is. Any ideas???
Yes, it happened to me. I thought I was the only one after I found your question here.
In my case, it shrank about a year after the transplant, and not only shrank, but it was bent after removing a piece of tubing called the "stent", which is put in place for adhering the new uretra to the bladder and then removed throuh the pennis. A month after that procedure, it noticed it was bent, which it never was before.
Now, from 6 1/2 inches, it is now about 3 inches, plus it is bent. You can imagine the trauma I have about this. It was 8 years ago and I am so embarrased that I have not had any girlfriend or sexual partner since then.
I am really not complaining, as it was a choice of live like this, or die from kidney failure. I am more curious of how you feel with your boyfrined. Looking to know what should I expect if I meet a girl again.
