16 years with Peyronie's
« on: August 09, 2018, 10:50:48 PM »

Hi all! I joined ages ago, but have decided to do more than lurk. I am 16 years in, diagnosed in 2002. I did the verapamil thing, (which actually helped a little), now seriously using traction. So we'll see. Urologists are so offhand about this affliction. "Yes, it's Peyronie's, nothing we can do." And promptly shown the door. My bend is now somewhat manageable at about 60 degrees (down from 90), but I have a serious "hinging" mid penis, which makes penetration virtually impossible. The Erectile Dysfunction is worsening as well. Hoping for some improvement from traction. Great to be here!

Welcome, glad to here of your improvement and hoping traction helps even more.  How many hours a day are you going for?

Thanks! I am averaging 4 hours a day. Which is challenging.

Hi, 16 years a time, 60 deg in which direction? thought about VED as well as traction could be the answer, bit of manual massage works well for me.

Monty, The plaque mass is along the top side, the bend is to the left and was originally 90 degrees, and now about 60. The "hinge" right in the middle of my penis is the worst problem.
