Traction + Stem Cells. Will update on results.
« on: November 02, 2018, 07:46:09 AM »

Hey everyone,

I am going to Dr. Lander for stem cells next week. I am planning to couple it with traction (Penimaster Pro 3-6 hours/day), pentoxyfilline, and Neo40 nitric oxide.

Situation:

Lateral Curvature 45 degrees and Ventral Curvature 45 degrees. 7 years (chronic phase). Early 20's. Traction has not helped so far.

Wish me luck guys. Doing everything I can to avoid surgery.

Hey Ruff,

Looks like a perfect combat plan. I am convinced that stem cells + traction with PMP (one of the best devices) + pentox will produce an improvement.

Just be patient, and be strong!!

Good luck,

Stem cells are the future.

I am currently in a clinic and we are using stem stells to treat patients with COPD (crazy, I know) and ligaments of the spine.

I am positive they will be increasingly used in the penis. This is coming FAST. Stem cells are easily available nowadays in the US.

Christopher, that is interesting. What kind of results are you seeing on patients with COPD? Do you pull the cells from fat or bone marrow? I'm assuming you are administering via IV?

ruff, best of luck!

Hey Everyone. Here is an update 11 days post stem cell procedure.

Procedure went alright. The shockwave machine broke unfortunately so he just did the stem cells and ‘extra’ needling. He said he stuck the needle in about 30 times. My plaque is at the proximal penis dorsal and ventral so that’s where he injected. My penis was black and blue with swelling around the site of injection for 5 days. Had sex on the 6th day and it was fine. My biggest concern right now is that my penis is still sore at the site of injection, especially when erect. It’s only been 11 days so I’m hoping the pain goes away soon.

No noticeable change in curvature so far. Erections are the same hardness.

I haven’t started traction yet because the pain is still there. I plan to start traction as soon as the pain goes away. I have been continuing pentoxyfilline + Neo40

In terms of the liposuction, it went smooth. I’m really skinny so it was more uncomfortable than for most patients according to Dr. Lander. Liposuction was taken from my back (love handle area). Still lumpiness and swelling with a small scab. Also painful to press against.

Please lmk if you have any questions guys.

Will update in a few weeks/ months.

My clinic advised me to stay away from blood thinners (like Pentox) in the initial days afterwards, did you ask Lander about that? Good luck!

What is the reason for that? I didn’t ask Dr Lander about that.

Have you seen results so far?

Thank you

Also should I be worried about the pain? I still have pain at the site of injection 12 days after the procedure

ruff, I'm not sure the reason for that but I did discontinue Pentox on my doctor's orders after my treatment. I did get results, about half an inch girth gain in my most major area of hourglassing, biggest dent filled in a bit, overall feeling of skin in said hourglass went from a sandpapery feel to a more smooth feel. Getting another round of treatment soon.

In terms of pain, I did have some as well but I was also told to abstain from all sexual activity and not touch my penis for a week so that helped. Minor pain for me around the injection side which went away after abit (even had little grain-of-rice sized lumps at injection site that disappeared as well). I do wish they had done shockwave for you, it's BS that their machine broke. They help the stem cells target into the penis and stay there better. But I didn't get the shockwave either, for what it's worth.

Very good results.

I have seen them used IV as well as inhaled (and obviously injected). We use embryonic stem cells. Not from fat.

The shockwave therapy should ideally be done before. 1 or 2 sessions before is fine.

You want to create a bit of inflammation so the stem cells have something to react to. With that said - it really is not necessary. Also, do not take any drugs like pentox after the stem cells for a good 3 weeks. Just let the cells do what they do best. By killing inflammation with pentox, you may actually be blunting the affect stem cells have. (This is all hypothetical. No studies to prove it, but it makes sense physiologically.)

All that said - I am sure you did fine. Personally, I prefer embryonic stem cells.

Ruff, I hope all is well. Please let us know how the treatment went and how it’s going? I spoke with a Dr Zahalsky who is affiliated with amniotic fluids being used for treatments. The claim is 7 of 10 human trials have seen the plaque completely disappear after three months!  So I am dying to know your results!   Dr Zahalsky Seems very passionate about Peyronies he seemed to understand the stages and the mental drain it carries. However after the Gainswave, PRP, Traction cash cow roller coaster I’ve been on, I am still searching for the light at the end of the tunnel.  It’s getting dark so please anything you can share please do.

Hey JS, how long did it take for those grain-of-rice sized lumps and pain to go away? One month out and I still have it

1 MONTH OUT UPDATE

Hey everyone. Im 1 month out from the stem cell procedure. Here is an update.

Pain is still there around the injection site when erect. The lumps at the injection site have become smaller but they are still there. Another thing is a hard bead has appeared in the middle ventral part of my penis. It is especially prominent when erect. It appeared after 2 weeks and has gotten slightly bigger. I called Dr. Lander and he said it is probably a minor blood clot.

Unfortunately my curvature has not improved at all since the procedure. In fact, it seems to have gotten worse. The girth seems to be a slightly larger and erections are better. I have been taking Neo40 everyday since the procedure as well, so that could be why my erections are better. I have also been heating my penis everyday.

I am flying out to see Dr. Lander on Tuesday so he can examine my concerns.

I am starting traction today. I am going to do around 3 hours at 400-600g to start up, and may increase this after 1 month.

If this doesnt work, I will likely get plication with Dr. Gelman (possibly grafting with that guy in Rio De Janeiro)


Stay strong everyone!

Hey, can you explain your exact Peyronie's symptoms?

Before the procedure I had a 45 degree lateral and 45 degree ventral curvature. Now it appears that my curvature has increased to a 60 degree lateral curvature.

The symptoms I currently have are pain when erect. My plaque is at the proximal penis so the injection was there. There is also lumps at and around the injection site. It becomes abnormally  stiff and painful when erect

Thanks for the reply. I don't like the sound of the lumps around the injection site, the new "hard bead" or the pain. My gut is telling me that the "extra needling" they did in place of the ultrasound could be the cause of that.

Another cause could be something similar to what RD experienced (the member who cured his Peyronie's with stem cells). He had plaques appearing and disappearing all over his penis for two years until he was finally good to go. Something I want to note in his case that I just realized and have never seen brought up: RD started intermittent fasting as well during those years, so that could have played a role in his success.

Also, I know this is a little left field, but I've been looking into the snake diet and I feel like it can really help you with your current situation via autophagy (won the nobel prize in medicine 2016). It isn't really a diet, it's more of a method of extended fasting. Look it up on youtube and be your own judge.

Interesting about the Snake diet. I will look into it. I have been doing intermittent fasting since August and it hasn't helped my peyronies disease so far.

The hard bead is almost gone after I started traction a couple days ago which is great. It was pretty big before but now its very tiny. However, the lumps are still there and it is painful. I am really hoping that the plaques dont appear and disappear for 2 years like RD. My curvature has gotten worse and I want to have surgery in March-May timeframe. I was in the chronic phase for 4 years and if I transition to the active phase due to this procedure, I will be really upset since it could delay when I can have surgery. I really hope these lumps go away soon. Will keep everyone updates. Thanks for the support.

That's great news that the the hard bead is disappearing, but the curvature issue is very weird to me. I think it is possible their "needling" could have put you back into acute phase, but it's more likely that this will pass soon-ish. Also, the snake diet is not intermittent fasting, it's extended fasting for as long as you can go (I'm about to do a 50-100 day water fast with my next stem cell treatment. I can only do this because I'm fat lol). Good luck and keep us updated!
