In January 2007 I had a work accident causing severe pain to my lower abdominal and genital area. I was sent the company doctor and because of the injury I was immediate sent to a surgeon for treatment. I was diagnosed with a hernia and immediate surgery was advised. Before surgery was scheduled I was diagnosed with a bilateral hernia. The second diagnosis caused a problem with my company WC coverage inasmuch as they refused to accept the second diagnosis. My surgery was delayed for two months.
After surgery I was having severe pain associated with the surgical area and in my genital area. I than underwent pain management treatment for months.
I was having problems with intimate relations therefore I abstained from sex. It was almost a year later that I noticed my penis curvature. My primary doctor referred me to a specialist who diagnosed it as Peyronies. After months of injections I finally was advised to have a penile prosthetic implant.
It was just after my surgery I found information from the Mayo’s Clinic that indicated that Peyronies can be related to an injury.
Has anyone experienced a similar situation and how did you manage. I am currently having a problem getting the insurance carrier to pay for my treatment. This due to the fact that no doctor will state for the record there is a “causal relationship” due to my previous work injury.
I need help.
