I recently ended up in the emergency room at one of the local hospitals out in town (non VA). I went there becsuse I had a painfull erection that would not go away. I ended up getting a bunch of shots in the penis that did not help. The called in a Uroligest who stuck a needle in it and drained it. Still no effect it keeps filling up and the blood is not draining. The docter asked me what medications I was on. I told him and he said it was in direct connection with Trazadon I was told by the doc that it happens to a few who take it over the course of years. Since non of the treatments where working I was then taken into emergency surgery, and worked on. It still looks like there is not much improvement I am propably going to loose the use of my penis it will no longer be able to get hard. I was also told if it where to do enough dammage I might not be able to have kids. It was a rough 2 days for me and still is I am only 26 years old and have been waiting to get a back surgery in hopes that it will work some and I can get off some of the long list of medications that I am on.

I have never herd of this with this drug I am not too sure how rare it is but I know that there are a lot of others out there who are on it and wanted to spread some kind of awareness that this could happen.

I talked to the docter and he is going to get me all the paperwork from the ER visit and surgery paperwork, and a note stating that the situation was caused by the drug. Even though I would like to have the problem fixed which it looks like that wont be the case can I file with the VA for it causing this condition. Is there a way to file this as a secondary claim.

Is there anything I can do through the VA call or complain as this will have a large effect on the rest of my life I am not sure what to do or if there is anyone out there who can help me with this problem

Thank You.

Dog gone it Boondoc,

I didn't read your post at the way and made a bad joke. I'm sorry partner. My apologies and I hope that this all turns out better for you.

Please forgive an old soldier for a stupid remark.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
