Hi to all,

i have penile cancer diagnosed and the doctor recommended me to undergo a penectomy in the middle of my penile shaft, so I will loose the glans and tissue behind.

Has anyone an idea if I have a chance to can have penetrative sex after and maintain erection and orgasm.

What kind of feeling is this to have sex without the glans?

Thx, I'm verry sorry to you. I'm from Germany. The Doctors hide back in giving answers to those questions and I don't know why.

I have no idea, how my penis will look after surgery, and their is no other possibility than amputation, because of a deep tumour.

Likely I have to sit down for peeing after the surgery.

Could you reach a point of orgasm?

Thx Michael.

Do you have phantom sensations since the amputation was done?

I suppose if you are not having a total penectomy there would be still some erectile tissue remaining, whether you will be able to perform sexual intercourse, I would imagine it would depend on healing etc. So are you having a urethrostomy? If so, you will be able to ejaculate...just will be through the urethra.... between your legs. I would only imagine that "sex" as you know it will be different.

My husband had a total penectomy. He did however "feel" some "hardness" when aroused...at the base of where his penis was... I imagine that there was some erectile tissue remaining to cause this. He was still able to orgasm and ejaculate... Just was different.

ok, thx, for me is planned to leave the urethra in the remaining stump, so I can pee and hopefully ejaculate in the front of my body.

Did your husband had to work very hard on getting orgasm in cause of the missing organ?

I can't imagine to have only a short penile stump, how will it look after?

The doctors told me already in most of all the cases the patients always have to sit for urinating, however they have a stump. I feel much panic, that the stump will be too short for intercourse. The doctor couldn't garantuee for any stump length after, maybe there will be only 2-3cm (little more than 1 inch).

Did your husband feel phantom sensations?

My cancer is located between the glans and the shaft directly under the foreskin, which I cant't remove since long time. It is a deep epithelia cancer. I can't imagine all this.

thx Mikel

All I can say is that everything is different after. Your ability to accept and adapt with what remains will determine how things will be for you.

If you have your prostrate and urethra in tack, orgasm and ejaculate will be possible. The "how" will be determined by many things...

The comments you have made concerning the doctors, saying "they don't say much" or "they can't promise.. if any stump"...would tell me to set no expectations on "how it will be" because you really don't know. I realize this is very hard to take in and the unknown is hard to live with. I would imagine depending on margins and in receiving good ones, is where they will cut. If there isn't much I would imagine a urethostomy would be done...prepare yourself..or bold face ask these questions to the doctors...and make them answer...this is your body.

Best to research what you can so to not only for preparedness but to be able to ask questions needed to the surgeon. I can not see them not knowing their game plan before going in...they have the test results etc. I do not know what the numbers are that your surgeon has done this procedure....having confidence in him helps... and asking questions will help.

If it be any help, I have a website I made on penile cancer...but there is more on total penectomies etc there. I am sorry if I wasn't able to help. Since my husband had a total penectomy, it may be totally different than what you will end up with.
