I was diagnosed by my GP with peyronies today. Partially based on a rubbery firmness on much of my shaft but not on the base and a photo of my erect penis from the side, which show what he estimated to be about a 10% upward curve (he felt the curve started about where the rubbery firmness starts on my flaccid
penis). I had not even really noticed that, just thought it was my regular angling when I took the pic this morning.
My visit to the GP came about because of an hourglass shape I noticed in a semi-erect state last Sunday (it has not re-appeared since). Even the upward curve was only noticeable when FULLY erect, not semi-erect where my photos only shows maybe a very slight upward curve if at all. Not left or right curving.
I was glad my GP was on top of it because some people's experiences very different. He said he's treated Peyronies before and even gave me a prescription for Pentox
and Cialis right away as well as saying I should get on L-Arginine
. Here the oral prescription and supplement plan recommended by my doc:
Pentox - 2 400mg tablets 3x a day
Cialis - 1 5mg tablet 1x a day
L-Arginine - 2 500mg tablets 2x a day
I also purchased Acetyl L-Carnitine and COQ10 based on what I'd read on here. Not sure exactly how incorporate them in. Suggestions? I am also thinking about applying regular heat and maybe trying VED
. Though VED sounds extreme for I am at now.
Is there anything else I should consider? I feel like we caught it relatively early. Also, he said I don't need to see a Uro yet. Considering I got the "standard" prescriptions should I push for a Uro referral or just book one now?
