Urethral Stricture Please Help!Hi All,
This is my first time posting on the ABChomeopathy forum. I would really appreciate some help.
I have had a urethral stricture for about 8 years now. This began when I was masturbating, then I noticed some blood in my semen. At this point, I decided to let my urethra try to heal and I took a break from masturbating for one month. Afterwards, when I resumed masturbating, I noticed a decreased force of ejaculation. I went to see a Urologist, and he let me know I likely developed a urethral stricture in the prostatic portion of the urethra.
Last year, I tried taking silicea 6c, 2x/day for one month (2 pellets for each dose), however I did not notice any improvement. Several weeks ago, I again tried taking silicea 6c for the urethral stricture, and this time I increased the daily silica to 3x/day (with 5 pellets for each dose). I tried this for 11 days, however did not notice any improvement and stopped. I have taken cantharis 6c now for the last 4 days, 2x/day.
My main symptoms now are:
1. Decreased urinary stream at times, sometimes with two thin urinary streams
2. Decreased force of ejaculation
3. Burning of urethra, sometimes after urination, sometimes after ejaculation, or if I put a lotion on my penis.
4. My urethra can spasm in response to a lotion I put on my penis
I also filled out this form that I found on the website to give more information:
Age 26, Male, weight 160 pounds, medical student
2. Main complaints and other associated troubles.
a)Where is the trouble; The exact locality of the complaint like hands,legs etc; duration of trouble.
The trouble is my urethra
b)What exactly do you feel, Sensation as pain, how pain feels or burn etc.
At times I feel a burning sensation (sometimes after urinating, after ejaculating, if I put a lotion on my penis). Also, sometimes my urethra spasms when I put a lotion on my penis, or after ejaculating.
c)What are the factors that causes this trouble according to you.
What caused this was after I masturbated, and I noticed a little bid of blood in my semen.
d)Condition under which the complaint is reduced or you feel better like,cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.
The condition is better if I do not masturbate, and if I do not put any lotion on my penis.
e)Condition under which the complaint is increased like,cold or hot application,cold or hot weather,position as standing,walking,rest etc.
The urethral discomfort is increased sometimes after urinating, after ejaculating, and if I put a lotion on my penis.
f)Any other complaint any where in the body.
Otherwise, no other big complaints. Sometimes I have a nervouse stomach. I also had a hydrocele surgery 15 years ago.
g)Onset time of troubles in detail, i.e which came first, after that what problem and so on.
First I masturbated once 8 years ago, then I noticed blood in my semen. Then I took a break from masturbating for 1 month, then I noticed that when I ejaculated there was a decreased force with decreased orgasm.
h)Treatment method adopted and its result.
One year ago, I tried silicea 6c, 2x/day (2 pellets each dose) for one month, however it did not help. I also took silicea 6c for an extra month after that.
Then, about 15 days ago I tried taking silicea 6c 3x/day (each dose 5 pellets) for 11 days, however did not notice any improvement and stopped.
For the last 4 days, I have taken cantharis 6c, 2x/day (5 pellets each dose), and I perhaps have noticed some improvement.
