Impotence - Caused by Trauma or Surgery

No surgery is 100 % safe. Prostate surgery, like any operation, comes with its added risks. Typical side effects from surgery can result low sensitivity, scaring and even erectile dysfunction. While minimizing the prostate’s size, doctors can often injure the nerves and blood vessels of the penis. If any harm comes to the nerve endings or blood vessels, men can experience impotence.
Physical trauma and surgical injuries affected both young adults and seniors. It has been known that youth impotence occurred to younger men mostly due to motorcycling accidents or injuries from bicycle seats. Significant portions of seniors who undergo prostate surgery suffer from various degrees of erectile dysfunctions. Other known impotence-related injuries occur due to pelvis fractures, which can cause E.D. due to injury of the prostate-membranous urethra. [1],[2]

There is controversy as to whether E.D. develops as a result of the disruption caused by the surgical trauma or the subsequent repair and healing processes from surgery. Many research publications and studies have pointed out that autonomic neurogenic lesions from the surgical procedures are the key contributing factor for subsequent erectile dysfunctions. Therefore it is important to research and find good surgeons. If you already traumatized, considered how natural approach for recovery can revitalize the damaged blood vessels, increase blood flow to the penis, provide necessary nutritional support, and repair bruised nerves and tissues.
