My meeting with a urologist.
« on: January 10, 2019, 10:26:21 PM »

So I met with my urologist today. Not going to state names because reasons. However essentially he referred me to another urologist. Dr Brock is his name. I found his name on the paper from the Canadian urology society for peyronie's recommendations. Has anyone had any experiences with him?


Second. I talked to the urologist I saw about starting pentox and a low dose of cialis. He said there's essentially no evidence for those things helping. Or PABA. Said xiaflex doesn't have enough evidence in Canada. Pretty much said injectible calcium Channel blocker is the way to go.

Claimed Dr Brock is a great doctor. He did say during the assessment that peyronie's is very likely yet it seems to be in the acute phase and that the plaque was smaller than he expected but there. Claimed it didn't feel normal his exact words were a normal plaque feels a lot like a shreddy. (the cereal)

Any thoughts?

Unless you have different dicks in Canada, Xiaflex has been shown to work here across the border. Not familiar with injecting Calcium blockers. You need an Experienced Xiaflex injecting doctor if you decide to go that route

I love the way Bubba dawg puts things :D  I'm sure Xiaflex has the same efficacy there. The calcium blocker here is verapamil. It also has some collagenase activity. Xiaflex is an eater of collagen, that is how it works in Peyronie's.

Here is actually a good video provided by tonyode

Verapamil is discussed in there, along with Xiaflex

Hey folks thanks for the replies. Yeah I thought this was kinda ridiculous for an appointment. I mean the doc said it as a calcium Channel blocker. I knew it as verapamil.

Just felt weird from this appointment. I would have happily started pentox and cialis as it seems to have some benefits in the acute phase.

Kinda frustrating to wait 3 months to see a uro. Get basically no answers and now have to wait again. But Im looking forward to Dr Brock.

And Bubba. Surely are dicks must be a little different across the border (kidding.)

Sounds like all in all it was a weird appointment. Certainly not what I was expecting. I guess I look forward to seeing the next one.
