I have a question, I understand that sugar/cool sugar water and powdered sugar helps shrink the hemipene. But I have and recommend a cold water rise before its reinserted to help prevent infection. Please understand, this is an academic question from me as I have only had to do that a few time and not had problems. In theory, leaving sugar on the organ and sealing it in sounds like a bad idea. I would imagine it really depends on how long the organ was exposed and what condition the organ is. Thanks
