I've been doing a lot of research on venous leakage and understand what it is and how it happens.  I find much less info on if anyone has ever been cured from it?, if it will go away on it's on?, if sex or use of VED hurts or helps?  how long it normally lasts?  effective non-surgical treatment options?  I would love to hear from anyone who has had this problem and is now cured!

My background: I've had a curved penis/Peyronies before and it eventually went away away after 4-5 years in my 20's after months and years of gently stretching it in warm bath water.  Now in my late 40's I got it again after a careless sex injury.  Neither time with Peyronies did I have venous leakage or any problem keeping or getting an erection.  However about 6 mths ago, I was over-streching things trying to work the curve out and pretty sure I broke a vein or something near the base of my penis.  There was a sharp pain and soft erections started almost immediately. The sharp pain eventually turned into a dull constant pain with painful erections which lasted several months.  My penis also began to shrink which it had not done before.  Over time and with heat therapy the constant pain has gone away and the erections are now slightly uncomfortable and not possible without Stendra or Viagra.  My erections are so soft without a pill that I could barely have intercourse, but I can easily have an orgasm with oral sex and a soft erection.  My Stendra resolved the erection/intercourse problem, but obviously that's a patch and not a cure.  My questions above are ones that I've been unable to find answers to, so any advice or help is much appreciated!  I'm sure hoping this is not a live long condition!

By your symptoms, you fractured your penis. There is nothing you can do that will cure you, except for possibly a revascularization surgery which is done by a doctor in California.

Also, orgasms and erections are separate processes. Do you want to know more about penile fractures? I can help you. I fracture my penis too.

Hi,  yes I wanted to know more about the fracture part.  I was just making an observation that it has not effected my ability to have an orgasm,  but has made it difficult to have normal intercourse without pills.  Basically it's a soft erection that never gets hard enough for penetration.  Why don't they tell you about this stuff in SEX ED class?  It's pretty big news to tell someone,  hey this thing could break and can't be fixed so you should be careful with it!  So, can you tell me more about what you have tried and if anything has been effective?

There is not much we can do. The penis won't improve as time goes by. More likely it will get worse. You have micro arteries that run inside your penis, besides the veins, and those almost always get blocked or crimped when you fracture your penis.  There is a surgery that cures it, by that doctor I told you about. In some very select cases. So, either that or prepare for a life of pills, or injections, or an implant.

Look for San Diego sexual medicine, doctor Irwin Goldstein, and ''penile revascularization surgery''. Google it, and check the videos that I posted on this board.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16420241  - Dramatic improvement of penile venous leakage upon testosterone administration. A case report and review of literature.

Abstract

The main effect of testosterone was long-time assumed to be on sexual interest and, indirectly, on erectile function. Newer insights demonstrate that testosterone deficiency impairs the anatomical, ultrastructural, biological and physiological/functional substrate of penile erection, which can be, at least in part, restored by normalization of plasma testosterone levels. This is a report on a 56-year-old man suffering from diabetes mellitus type II and metabolic syndrome, who had complaints of a severe erectile dysfunction because of venous leakage, confirmed by pharmaco-cavernosography. He was also testosterone deficient (1.8 ng ml(-1)). Upon testosterone administration his erectile function improved dramatically. Repeated cavernosography no longer showed venous leakage.

Depends. Have you had your testosterone levels checked?

Surprised that case study isn't getting a bit more interest. A case of venous leakage, confirmed by pharmaco-cavernosography, reversed with the administration of testosterone.

In other words, what we all assume to be a purely mechanical issue, reversed by chemical intervention.

I have had venous leakage since 1995 after my prostate surgery. Had a slight leakage as early as age 55, prostate surgery in 1995.

As far as I have been able to find any answers about the question: Is Venous leakage able to be fixed? There are some surgeons claim success in fixing venous leakage, but there seems to be very few, if any, reports of success published.

My own personal URO who is current member of the AUA, states none articles have been published stating that a fix for venous leakage has been successful. Some reports a reduction in leakage, but not a total fix.

Bottom line for is that there is NO CURE at present for venous leakage.

Skunworks, interesting study. I did some further research and I found another one (more recent) that supports the same findings. Here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/store/10.2164/jandrol.108.005264/asset/jandrol.108.005264.pdf;jsessionid=4A5E8CA5047FB8159C1A3685161582C9.f02t04?v=1&t=izy9tlwl&s=1d301a0128329298f553afc9dc1a0705f070bdf0

That link was having issues so here is another - Testosterone Improves Erectile Function in Hypogonadal Patients With Venous Leakage - Kurbatov - 2008 - Journal of Andrology - Wiley Online Library

Great find by the way. So we can add another treatment option for venous leakage that has shown quite a good success rate.

TRT
Venous embolisation

Consider that, if you having peyronie, the inflammatory condition lead a massive release of elastase toward the whole tunica albuginea, ruining the elastic fibers forever.
At the onset of the disease Paulis and the others do prescribe Silmarin ( with trental and the others drugs) because the substance can contrast the effect of elastase, reducing or slowing down the damage.
Venous leakage is likely the  result of the degeneration of the elastic fibers , over time.
I got too but it take over 10 years for a severe E.D ( got Peyronies Disease at 30, 17 years ago).

White tea counteracts elastase too, so could give a little benefit.
A serious, honest andrologist may find a therapy that may help a little, anyway.

I´ve read doctor Darius Paduch from New York have a new technique for venous leak
It is based in a new approach with cavernosography
I know one person was cured with this
Does anyone know anything about this?

 fascinating & humbling times in our research: doing something nobody did before: in science there is no room 4 alternative facts aka lies
Darius A Paduch‏ @drPaduch  27 feb.

 Pts gfriend: I've never seen your penis so hard and big till Dr Paduch performed his new vascular procedure for ED. He saw 10 docs before me

And I know one person who was cured for him. He said me if everything is well the doctor will create a web page

For what i know this technique which he is using is very very new due to it wont be in documents and in any paper. The doctor told something about it in the last days of february in his twitter
And according to what that person (who had the procces done) said to me he is using a new approach with cavernosography that catch veins which were not seen by normal cavernosografia or doppler or something similar.

But if in the next months or maybe year nothing appears all this will be the same as always, false hopes
That probably will end in this way I do not want to do any illusion, it's better that way

For venous leak, I recommend try -
Testosterone/hGH injections
Shockwave therapy
Do not masturbate for 90 days.
-
You need to remodel the tissues.

Do you know the dangers of Testosterone injections?
How high level testosterone will help with venous leak? Can you give us a link to a study in the subject? I will like to learn about. I am 69, Testosterone 693, strong venous leak.
Do you know that no forum member except you that have venous leak had improvement from Shock-wave therapy?

The dangers of T are exaggerated.

If you fear some of the side effects, some injectable hCG and an anastrozole supplement can prevent any side effects.

There is some evidence that T can make prostate cancer worse IF you have prostate cancer. T will, however, not increase the incidence of GETTING prostate cancer.

Hope that helps.

The main worry I have with exogenous testosterone is that it can shut down natural testosterone production, sometimes permanently. Is that a misplaced fear?

Sort of.

There is a possibility of that happening if you take anabolic steroids, which are chemicals similar in structure to testosterone - but not really testosterone. The body has a hard time breaking them down, which is why you can get so muscular on them. It is constantly activating the T receptors, telling your body to grow.

With testosterone itself, that should not be a problem. You take an injection of hCG to maintain the size of your testicles. With that being said, testosterone should not be an on/off thing. If you want on, you should stay on. Also, if you go off, you will come down to the same crappy levels you were at before. Testosterone could potentially remodel your tissues, and studies show that it aids a great deal in wound healing. For example, oxandrolone is given to HIV waisting patients and burn victims.

So almost a year later I get my testosterone checked, 24.8 which converts to 714.

Double my age and James' has basically as high T levels as me.

Mine were like 320ish at 30. I have normal hair growth and normal sized testicles. My urologist told me once that's normal, since the receptors may be more sensitive in me vs other people. Maybe Christopher can clear that up.

If you have symptoms of low T and/or a venous leak diagnosed by a physician, it is worth a try.

Viagra and pentox also help with venous leakage. See the post in my signature for more info.

My T has tested around 300 over the last year that we've been testing. I've been working with a naturopath, hoping to avoid the whole testicle issue as a consequence of taking the T steroid.

In addition to testicle shrinkage as a concern, an equal concern is that in some circumstances where one sets about toying with T inducing protocols -- the male body will take testosterone and turn it into estrogen. And, while every male has normal amounts of estrogen as a routine, higher levels of estrogen don't produce the results most men are looking for, ahem. Hear ye, hear ye.

Some guys respond to the non-drug alternatives and produce T, but my body has not opted to cooperate so far. This week we're reviewing the possibility of taking Clomid which is affordable and has an off-label use for tricking the male body into boosting T. There's a second pill that will block the mechanism that takes T and turns it into estrogen.

Here's an example narrative on Clomid   Clomid for Men with Low Testosterone Part One by Jeffrey Dach MD

Just do the testosterone injections with an MD or DO. Forget the naturopath.

There are no alternatives. Tribulus does not work.
