Colchicine vs. Pentox: History and Urgent Question
« on: September 27, 2017, 11:40:57 PM »

Hello all,

I've been looking at this site since last summer, and it's been quite useful. With that said, I wanted to post my story and here and its connection to various medications with the hope of getting some constructive feedback.

I began noticing curvature in April 2016 at the age of 26; I would wake up with my penis curved to the left, didn't understand why, but stupidly didn't think anything of it. It only began to freak me out during July and August 2016 as it kept happening more and more, and when I began noticing curved and painful erections. There was no palpable lump anywhere, but I also began noticing what appeared to be a thrombosed vein or lymph vessel on the left side of my penis which I thought could be causing the curvature. Anyway, at the end of August 2016 I saw a well-known urologist in NYC who saw what he described as a tiny dorsal peyronies scar and a thrombosed vein after conducting a doppler penile ultrasound. Interestingly, he claimed it was the palpating lymph vessel/vein/artery doing the curving, not the peyronies (I say lymph/artery/vein because to this day, he has never been 100% clear as to what it actually is).

When I asked him about Pentox last August, he told me that since it was a pretty small plaque, 1.2mg of Colchicine a day along with daily 5mg of Cialis should do the trick; there was no need for Pentox. Skeptical at first, I nevertheless accepted his advice give his credentials, professionalism, and evident concern, interest, and knowledge about Peyronies Disease.

Fast forward a year to today. After being on Colchicine for a year, my Peyronies Disease has not improved at all, nor has it gotten any worse. The curvature and mild girth loss has remained stable, but I can't help but kick myself every day for not either demanding he switch me to Pentox, or find another doctor who would agree to put me on it. Why didn't I do this? Because I'm an idiot and just believed that he knew what he was talking about regarding Colchicine. I wonder every day: if I had been on Pentox 3*400mg a day + Cialis back in August 2016 during the acute phase, would I have been cured, or at least substantially improved? Is it too late now? Is it already calcified? Am I in the chronic state with no hope for recovery?

This month, I finally returned to him, and he finally agreed to put me on the Pentox. But my question remains: is it too late? After wasting AN ENTIRE DAMN YEAR ON COLCHICINE, A MEDICATION WITH NO DEMONSTRATED BENEFIT, my only assumption is that the real critical window for reversing my Peyronies Disease during my acute phase has passed, especially considering how minor the plaque was according to this doctor. I could've caught it early with Pentox if he had just given me it, but he didn't, and now I'm left wondering if there's even a point in trying the damn Pentox. I want to literally scream every time I look at my penis and think about my situation.

Thanks for taking the time to read. Any and all constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Don't beat yourself over Pentox, it is no 'magic' bullet or it would be much more 'publicized' generally as a 'cure'

Not late to start on Pentox, it helped me even I started taking it very late, but it is not a miracle drug (as Paolo wrote).
It may help you, taken together with low dose Cialis and VED. Sonner you will start, better the results. Just careful with the VED.
