I’m paralyzed and had a Foley catheter until it split

Patient: I’m paralyzed and had a Foley catheter until it split my penis I still do get an erection but it’s small. I would like to know if the split can be fixed and if so will my penis get back to its normal size when I have an erection.

 

 

Doctor: Hi. Thanks for writing to ATD.It is not possible to comment and confirm without a clinical examination. Neurological problems are known for a slow recovery. Your doctor will be able to comment on the right course of action to resolve your erectile dysfunction.Hope this helps.
