Shockwave - go/nogo choice in under a month
« on: August 31, 2018, 01:53:12 AM »

I have been treating my peyronies for about 6 months now - maybe a 5 percent reduction to 30% curve so far with the usual treatments - mainly meds and VED.

Scan shows one small calcification and another longer plaque.

Now then urlogist is suggesting shockwave - 4 weeks in a row for 15 mins. I think with corticosteroid injection as well.

Now it is odd but I had found some studies of good results but this forum seems very negative... The doctor is very positive about results - says it helps flexibility.

The price is around 200 dollars per session which seems reasonable compared to other prices I have seen.

Would appreciate views on this.

Hey Noncom!

Personnally, 4 shockwave sessions gave me a great but ephemeral decrease in pain (I was in the acute phase), a great but ephemeral erection boost, and costed me a great and definitive amount of money (400 + euros).

But maybe it could work in synergy with the injections, which clearly have a better chance to work per se... I'd give it a try, IF I had a lot of money^^......
