numbness after herpes zoster

I have been diagnosed with herpes zoster 10 days ago. I already took acyclovir 5 times a day for 10 days, I also took  gabapentin twice daly.I feel better now, but I don`t feel my genitales,neither my butt. due to nerves damage I suppose. I can`t poop till I try hard every 3 or 4 days ,I m peeing avery 2 hours or when ever I want and a small amount. All my genitals and my butt are numbed ,I don`t feel them. I m 43 years old and I want my life back. if any of you have been through this please help me.I have read about postherpetic neuralgia and I know it can last for ever. is this what I have? is any way I can stimulate those nerves again?thanks in advance.
