Had Cryotherapy, now have skin pain, scarring, hyperpigmentation on penis PLEASE HELP!

I had cryotherapy done multiple times for Molluscum lesions on my abdomen and genitalia about 1 year ago. It has left pigmentation issues, but also more importantly it has left me with pain. I have neuropathy all over my lower abdomen and it is considerably worse near the center of my stomach under my belly button were the most cryotherapy was performed. I have been left with an indentation in that area underneath my belly button where you can actually feel where the skin indents. It is as if a layer of skin or fatty tissue is missing under the indentation. I also have a lot of discoloration on my penis which bothers me tremendously. There are also what appear to be stretch marks near the base of the penis. I have attached before and after pictures (some graphic) to illustrate my situation.

My questions:
1. What has caused the indentation below the belly button and is it permanent?

2. Will the pain/neuropathy go away?

3. Will the discoloration fade?

4. Will my penis ever look normal again? Is there anything I can do to help the markings fade?
