Comment from: kman, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: October 22

I have the problem for 2 years now. My penis is curved very badly to the right. The doctor can straighten it but I also have blood leakage which is the cause of not being able to keep an erection. My doctor suggested a penal implant, says they are very good. He tells me people would never know that you have one. But no one can tell me if you can lose feeling in your penis, like I have with Viagra. Also, I have limited type of sex now and it's great, but with this option there's no guarantee that you will not lose some feeling.
