Overwhelmed
« on: May 05, 2018, 12:44:57 AM »

Hi all,

I want to introduce myself into this forum.

I’m 34 yo and recently diagnosed with Peyronie disease.

I’ve been reading this forum for a couple of hours and decided to register. English isn’t my mother tongue so excuse me if I’m not clear sometimes.

I’m really overwhelmed because is in this forum where I really see how bad this is. My doctor only said some poor words, but didn’t explain me anything or what not to do.

I’ll create a specific thread with my story, but my doctor and I are both sure about what caused this disease in me.

Thanks for reading,

really depressed right now.

Proposing you to read first:
Peyronies Survival Guide - Information for New Members - Peyronies Society Forums
It will give you some basics regarding this disease and treatment options
Read as much as you can on the forum to get more knowledge and what to do.

Regarding you doctor, you must find a doctor that specializing in Peyronies.
Many urologists don't know much regarding this disease.

And don't worry about your English, big % of the forum members are not native English speakers  :)

Hello Chaos,

Welcome here, and don't worry: you've come to the right place.

It's absolutely normal to feel particularly sad and depressed when you have your first diagnosis. It will pass, and you'll soon be totally focused on how to deal with this condition and improve your symptoms.

In this, the forum will be a great help, as hundreds of members have searched and tested hundreds of solutions (for pain, curvature, hourglassing, psychological aspects...); the majority of them won't work for you, but a few ones will, as they did for me (after 7 months with the disease, 10% thanks to my uros and 90% thanks to the forum, I am pain-free during the day, I can have sex and my condition seems to stabilize a little). You just have to stay focused and strong, and thoroughly search, try, test and sort!

--> So, for the moment, do read and apply the "Peyronies survival guide", and consider buying a VED and a traction device very soon in order to prevent your condition from worsening (as you were diagnosed very soon, you can have good hope). Then do find a good uro, and do no hesitate in visiting half a dozen of them before making your choice!

Thank you for your encourage words.

I have some moderated pain during erection/sex and a 32 degrees curve. Went to a specialist yesterday but nothing new. Kind of tried to sell me treatment... will see another one soon. Now in my ninth week with this.

Went to another specialist two months ago... and got an Rx and a ultrasound.
Good news: blood pressure and circulation perfect;
Bad news: lession completely calcified (is that a time record?). It’s about 2cm length by 1cm high by 3 mm width. Parallel to uretra, in the superior tangent zone of the tunicas.

I didn’t even measure the curve anymore. Quite sure is about 50 degree or more (up) and some 30 degree (left). May try some VED in the future. Taking 400mg per day of Vitamin E.

Masturbation is very painful, so no more within months.. Had sex with some pain... seems to be getting a little painless, hopefully.

I’m only happy when I don’t remember having this. My head and self confidence are oscillating a lot. This thing changes a man. For better or for worse, but you’ll never be the same.

Chaos,

Can you tell us what the new physician suggested for you after the results?

Not sure if I’ll be able to handle the Pentox effects.

No more suggestions. First visit I made he told he just returned from a congress in Atlanta where Dr Lue talked about this disease and mention current treatments.

He won’t recommend traction. Too dangerous. Only Vitamin E.

He said to me nesbit surgery was the best option for me, but only if I really have problems having sex and only after waiting one year or more.

Sounds like you are still in the active phase.  Oh, and welcome to the forum!  I am currently doing Xiaflex treatments, just finished first round.  Diagnosed a year ago.  The pain will subside, but the curve may get worse.  Or you could be one of the lucky ones and it disappears without a need for treatment.  Read as much as you can, and know you have support here.

Chaos,

Have you gone through our Specialists list to see if there is one located near you that could offer more relevant treatment protocols? The vitamin E is not going to be of any harm but will not aid in the treatment of Peyronies.
