Hello everyone I\'ve been on this board since 2011 I haven\'t posted until yesterday. i got the procedure done in 2011 I think February I\'m posting because I had a swollen penis after sex which never happened before so I got concerned. It only happened after masterbating. (Rarely)
I have a Nodule right side underneath penis. So that is what is causing the swelling. I contacted Dr C he said he has a few options I can get Kenalog injection he says he thinks it\'s granula (not sure if that\'s how it\'s spelled) I\'m typing quickly on my phone. He said shot can make it go down and stop it from swelling in he future. He also mentioned allopurinol. He is sending me information by email. He says he knows a Dr in Florida that can give me the shot instead of traveling to him. Florida is too far. But then I remembered seeing a Dr mentioned on this forum I think Dr Alter he says yes he knows about him. And suggested I go to him for he shot. He also mentioned a third option which is to remove it (the \"Nodule\") but says that option should be last if other options do not work. I also asked him about dmso but he says he doesn\'t know much about it. He says he\'s only read about it.
While typing I got an email from him here is his recommendation
1) Kenalog injections (locally), every month or so, until the desired effect happens.
2) A combination oral treatment of allopurinol and prednisone.
- Allopurinol (Zyloprim) at a dose of 100 mg daily for 30 days, plus
- Prednisone, 35 mg first day, reducing 5 mg per day. This is a one-week treatment.
3) Surgical excision of the lesion
Personally I\'d email Prof Lemperle and ask if he knows anyone in NY who can inject you. I don\'t have his email address anymore but you could probably find it on google. He\'ll have way more contacts than Dr C.
thanks for posting the email of what Dr C suggested, this info will come in useful to other members

Dr C suggested Dr Alter and said that I can mention it was him that injected the PMMA I am in NYC so it\'s easier since Dr Alter has an office there.

You mean your looking to find someone to do Kenalog shots? This should be easy for you in New York, I found a Nigerian plastic surgeon willing to do mine only 20 miles away from me and I live in the middle of nowhere.
If the Nodule has been there all the time then it cannot be a granuloma.
More information is needed here. First of all you are assuming that the swelling of the whole penis is because of the relatively small Nodule. Secondly, you have been experiencing swelling before when masturbating. Is the swelling slight, fairly so or much swollen? Soft, tender, painful? How does it compare to the swellings before, how does it look and feel in the particular area of the Nodule? Not concerned about the swelling before?
You know, there are quite some of us who are holding back because PMMA is permanent, difficult to remove (reverse) and there are issues. We are all \"eyes and ears\" now when someone like yourself comes up with updates like these. Please, you must be specific and explicit, filtering out the assumptions and conjectures so that our researches are appropriately informed.
There is already a thread \"PMMA swelling after sex\" or something like that, which would have been better \"merged with yours for easier reference.
The Nodule has been there from what it remember months after. Or from the beginning. The swelling goes away in a day. But if you put ice it goes away almost within an hour or two. It only gets swollen in that one area where the Nodule is. I don\'t know if this is related but I have been using bio oil on my Circumcision scar I got Circumcised the year before getting PMMA. Maybe this oil got my scar tighter because it has been working on making it look smooth. I have a raised scar in some areas. It\'s looking better now. Not sure if the two are related but after using this I started getting swollen been using it for about a month and a half and now this is when I\'m getting swollen. Before it was never after sex but only during masterbating but that was probably due to holding that top area where the Nodule is...
I have stopped using the bio oil and will see what happens within the next week. If it\'s fine I will wait it out and still get the injection whenever Dr Alter is in NYC or I will try dmso but I need more info on that or more people to explain if it helped their nodules. I don\'t have any pain during the swelling by the way. I\'m almost 100 % sure it\'s the Nodule causing the swelling.
