My feedback from Dr. Levine is that once plaque has calcified, there isn't much you can do other than surgery.

Try vitamin K2 (MK-4) and topical magnesium oil. You can read up on calcification and these compounds.

Totally not the standard of care, but worth a shot. No studies behind it though.

I think Dr Kuehhas is of the same opinion as Dr Levine. I had calcified plaque. We discussed Xiaflex, but the chances of it being effective against calcification are apparently pretty low. Surgery seems to be the only effective answer at the moment.

It is not impossible.


My peyronies started early 2016, and since then I have had several ultrasounds made, by three different doctors.


In March 2016, I had two calcified areas: One 3mm long, one 18,3mm long. These were observed at two independent urologists, one i Switzerland, one in Austria, both having doppler ultrasound gear. In May 2016, the tiny one had disappeared, and the large one had reduced to a length of 11,7mm. In August 2016, the only remainder was a 4x3mm area, right behind my glans (This was checked at two independent urologists, both having doppler ultrasound equipment. Both urologists Swiss.). In March 2017, the 4x3 splinter was still there, but looking less dense than on earlier photos, and for sure no longer embedded in the tunica.


My daily dose of drugs is: Pentox (only one pill per day), L-Arginine, L-Carnitine, Fish oil, CoQ10, multivitamine and Cialis.
