I believe an injury to my pelvis and spine (L1 and L5 ) could be the cause. Everything was working fine until I suffered this injury.

I have been having the problem of ED for about 3-4 years. For the last 2 yrs I am on Stamlobeta 5 once a day for my BP and on Finheart (statin) one every night for my trigycerides. No other medication is on and my BP is abt 130/88-92 or so. I am able to ejaculate and have the desire for sex at an average of 2-3 times a day and I am 52 yrs old. I have been going through some mental stress but now I wish to get back to normal and be able to satisfy my partner.

I had varicocele surgery about 4 months back for bilateral one. Before surgery my libido went absolutely low. However after one month of surgery I was getting night erections. The erections were not so strong as used to be before and I felt pain within my penis and felt some dryness and burning sensation, it looks as if something is not reaching my penis which is leading to irritation or dryness. Till now I had 3 nocturnal discharges after varicocele surgery but hardly feel sexual aroused because of erection pain in my consciousness as I had before. Blood and urine tests are normal. My doctor told me everything will be normal after some days.
