RestoreX Use Tips - pics included
« on: January 01, 2019, 12:22:55 AM »

1. If your doctor tells you to do nothing and wait, find another doctor who is up to date on todays therapies for Peyronies.  The most important thing you can do is to treat it immediately.  If you are lucky enough to mold your scar while it is still fresh, you could have great results with traction.  The older your scar gets the harder it is to remodel.  Very old scars can even require surgery or injections to breakdown the scar material. 
2. Stretching works and will not hurt your penis.  You need to see a doctor and have him not only confirm your condition, but also tell you where the scars are so you can come up with a stretching strategy.  You want to stretch straight out, but you will also want to stretch down or to the side for example to stretch your scar where it needs it most.  My scar is on top, so I stretch out straight and then down.  (I was bent left, assumed my damage was on the side in fact most of the damage was on top.)
3. Do not put the tape directly on your penis.  You need to put some gauze around your penis first and then put the tape on over it.  This takes some practice and even with practice, you will have some off days.  If you put the tape directly on your penis, you will tear your skin.  Always take the tape off slowly
4. Clamp down with the entire head of your penis in the clamp, with the neck of the clamp on the area of your penis shaft that is below your penis head.  This will take practice and how many clicks will depend on your penis size.  I click 2-3 times for example. 
5. During the first months or so of doing your therapy, I highly recommend a rice sock to warm the area for optimal stretching.  I have found that after some time, I don’t need the rice sock anymore but in the beginning it softened up the area and allowed for greater stretching. 
6. Find a comfortable private area to do your stretching, bring an iPad or something like that and just relax while your are doing your therapy and take your mind off it.  I watch movie trailers, TED talks, Netflix, etc.
7. Make sure your partner is aware of your therapy and that you need some private time each day.  Sometimes I try to do it at my office, I have a private office, so it does not interfere with my family time
8. The RestoreX team is there to help, do not hesitate reaching out to them.  They have provided me with the best support and also replaced a broken device at no cost.  I cannot say enough about them, and their generosity. 
9.  Get your self an extra base.  Attach the long arms to 1 and short to another.  Do your 15 minutes straight with the long arms, then switch to the short arms and do your 15 minutes bent. 
10.  After wrapping your penis head, make sure your pull your shaft while you hold the wrapped up penis head to release any skin folds under the wrapping that WILL cause you pain while clamped.  This is super important, make sure that you practice this a lot.
11. After putting your penis in, make sure your loosen the skin around the base of your penis so you are pulling the inner tissue, not your skin.
12.  Be patient, this is a marathon, not a sprint.  Changes take place slowly over time and remember scars want to pull together so you have to fight with it till YOU win.
13.  Everyone has a different scar.  Some scars are big, some are small, some effect more layers than others and so on.  You can speak to people in the forums but remember that everyone will have mostly a different experience and my experience may or may not be different than yours.
14.  Exercise, stay fit, stay positive, eat healthy, and stay sexually active if your doctor says that’s safe. 
15.  When stretching against your scar, put some gauze on the fulcrum so that your penis can glide across the fulcrum and reduce discomfort or pain.
16.  Last but no least, always remember to take a piss before you start.  The worst is when you are half way thru and you need to piss

Does anyone know if it's possible to communicate with Dr. Trost directly via email?  Please advise.  I'm willing to travel from California to see him if he thinks he could help me.  Thanks very much.

I do know that for the in office consultation you have to drop a deposit of 7000 USD, that will be returned to you upon going there. So they won't charge you the amount if you go. But I tried searching for contact info before, or phone call consultations and I don't think he does that. Not sure now, that though the mayo website you can reach out to him if you are a patient.

Did you ask him if you can post his email online before doing it?

He said it was found online, so I presume it's public?

Out of respect, I would ask him.  There are very strict laws in the USA regarding what he can discuss with people who are not his actual patients and he might not want his email address published like that.
