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.
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.
