Shockwave Therapy - I received it. Ask me anything.
« on: April 09, 2017, 02:55:09 AM »

Hi gentlemen,

I received shockwave therapy (6 sessions) from a urologist in Florida.

No improvements in Peyronies Disease or plaque size, but it did improve my erections. (I was also diagnosed with venous leak.)

Questions? Ask away.

Do you plan on getting your venous leak rechecked now that you've had the course of shockwave therapy?

Probably not.

I think I might get some PRP injections as well.

Thing is - urologists agree that having some venous leakage is normal. Most people have some venous leakage. It is just that the INFLOW is greater than the OUTFLOW, giving you a healthy erection.

I'd say try it. It worked for me. I am not rich, so the urologist did 6 sessions for $500. Very nice of him.

Success with respect to what? ED or Peyronies Disease?

Chris,
do you have any details of the energy per sq mm used per pulse and number of pulses per session? (or alternatively the length of session and the pulse frequency)
and what machine was it ?
did you get any bruising or negative effects after each session that needed time to recover from?
I'm wondering what were the constraints to increasing the number of sessions or pulses, (besides the cost)
thanks

I do not know how many shocks per session - unfortunately - or any other metrics.

Mild bruising. Very mild. Gone within a day.

My urologist says you need to wait a couple of months after your 6 sessions. New blood vessels will grow. This takes time.

I do not know if 6 more sessions after that is recommended.

I found where to make this therapy in the place I am living.
* $300 for consultation with the doctor
* $3,000 for each session, the doctor don't know how many sessions will be necessary to see some results 8)
So I will skip on the treatment for now :)

I will try to get manufacturer and settings when my sessions start next week.

@james: I really pity you people over there. It's just so unfair. Here it's like visit is free and session should be around 80-100€.  :-[

James - he is trying to scam you.

Sessions last about 5 minutes.

Yes I know they try to scam me :)
It is a known local institute, for people that will spend money without thinking :)
I made in the past PRP with an other institute for $100 :)
