Ok, I know this one's a sensitive subject, but I'm hoping someone has some input for me.
Post L5-S1 discectomy, I had severe nerve damage which also affected the right side of my genitals. Perhaps I'm lucky that I was always hypersexual and could easily have multiple orgasms. It didn't effect me too much, and after a year, I barely noticed it. However, I did have problems up until a few months ago, that when I had orgasm, I would lose bladder control. Ugh. Thankfully hubby was very understanding. I was grossed out more(embarrassed) about it than him. Thankfully that had gotten better.
But now, 7 weeks past my T12-L1 herniation, since my spasm has eased, we've begun easing carefully back into having sex again. I have about the same level of sensation in my genitals, but I lack that feeling of fullness and can't feel the uterine contractions after orgasm. I simply don't feel fulfilled any more. It's like I can have an orgasm, but I don't feel the physical release from it. It's a huge let-down and very frustrating since hubby and I have always had a very active and fulfilling sex life.
Has anyone dealt with this, or similar issues with a thoracic injury? I know the nerves involved affect sensation to abdominal and groin areas. I have bladder retention from it too.
Thanks in advance for any advice, comiseration, or support you have to offer on this touchy and delicate matter.
