Tomas,  I am almost certain the surgeon intends for you tobwas the genital area with Hibiclens.  Mine did.

It is crucial you find out ASAP.

"I am not spamming! I am asking questions. Trying to figure out how it works."
You are not trying to figure out how it works.  It's not our responsibility to teach you how traction can benefits scars.  Everyone here has already done their homework on how traction helps remodel scars before posting here.  There are so many examples online via Google "" on how scars are remodeled with traction, massage, etc.  So if you were someone who knew how to self educate, which you learn in school Bubba, then you could easily get on the same page with us and some other doctors and small hospitals you might not have heard of like the Mayo Clinic.

"Where is some before and after member result pictures"
They are posted in the other thread where pics are posted, again you clearly don't know how this forum works.  You would have to be deaf dumb and blind not to see the improvements with traction with my pictures.

"But it really contrast with the Xiaflex method when Xiaflex recommends NO traction. "
You are comparing Apples and Oranges.  Traction is a first line of treatment.  Xiaflex is a second line of treatment (which includes traction and stretching).  Surgery is the last line of treatment.  Again, you are mixed up and are talking about things you don't understand which can mislead and misinform others.  This is why you have a lot of us disturbed by your ignorant posts.

"But what I read and hear is that peronies is caused by trauma. Stretching to the extreme is trauma. I don't think bending with Xiaflex is trauma. "
Wrong.  Traction is not trauma.  Controlled prolonged traction is therapy that causes scar tissue to remodel.  If you think that is not true, then maybe you can go down to the Mayo Clinic and update them on your findings.

"I don't see how you can heal anything by extreme stretching. Short term you maybe improve with Restorex. You may also cause more trauma that could create future acute attacks, in my opinion. "
Grateful that you are not the one providing me with medical advise.  My doctor at the Mayo Clinic might know a thing or two you don't.  But please, enlighten us on your opinions more.  Show us your medical research.  In the meanwhile, have you seen

"I got a Hematoma during treatment with Xiaflex. The Hematoma was not cause by the medicine. It was caused by extreme stretching/molding by the Doctor."
I cannot comment on what caused the Hematoma, I'm not a doctor and don't know about this.  Maybe someone else here can.

He's not undermining anything, he's showing how he clearly does not understand what he is talking about.

Erections are very strong, and that was confirmed by the ultrasound.  I am willing to go into this with a positive attitude as my scar tissue is growing and calcified

So.... Are you not concerned about Erectile Dysfunction later? With excision and grafting? How are your erections right now? Strong?

I saw my uro today for my pre-op for my implant on 01/22/19.
He asked if I had any concerns and I gave him several:

Can I get the LGX?
He said he always tries to use it unless there's excessive scarring, or cylinders are longer than 18cm.
I said I've always been 6" and shouldn't have a problem,
He reminded me he wouldn't know the whole length until he measured it all.
I notice that many others here fall into the sweet spot he wants, so that's encouraging.

Can I have the peno-scrotal method?
He said that should not be a problem.
I worry about the tubing routing that some have encountered.

Will I have to stay in the hospital over night?
He said he likes to do that to guard against infection.
I'd feel safer in my own home, but I'll go along.
At least I can get catheter removal and urinary stream monitored that way.

I want you be able to say this is one of your best results ever.
Naturally he agreed with that.

I am to bathe each day with Hibiclens to ward off bacteria. Funny, I can't use it in the genital area.
I guess it at least prevents bacteria in general.

We tried to get the post-op prescriptions at Walmart but they denied the opioids due to the frequency or qty written. I guess it's for the common good like every other restriction put on everyone like TSA, baby formula, and cough meds. I have time for that to be resolved.

This will be my first stay overnight in a hospital since I got my tonsils out 73 years ago.

By they way, I misunderstood the vitamin yesterday. It was vitamin E they wanted stopped, not D.

Hi all

It has been a couple of months since my last post so I thought it is time to give a progress report.

I have been on the low carb diet/intermittent fasting since the beginning of Sept and staying regular with the manual traction and VED treatments. I have seen an improvement in the curve from 35 to 25 degrees. The dent has also been reduced. The improvement has been slow and gradual but I am happy with the progress.

My guess is that the manual traction and VED have had the most impact. I look at the diet more as a preventive. Fasting likely supports the improvement through autophagy or at least contributes to prevention of Peyronies Disease progression.

What I am really pleased with is the way if feel due to the no sugar/low carb diet. I am now in the lower range of normal BMI - somewhere around 10% body fat from 15%. My anxiety is down and my sleep quality has improved. I can list other changes but lets just say, I am convinced sugar and highly processed grains are not meant for human consumption. getting off topic...

How do you want people not to get upset, when you don't bother to read the posts properly before posting? I've posted two threads, from said member, with exactly what you are looking for. Again, ''thinkpositive'' shared what I believe to be the only two pictures available online of a penis being stretched on the device, even showing the penis being bent. Right there on my first post on this thread.

How could you not see it?

So I am covered 100% for Dr Yafi in my tiered 𝐈𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞, and found I am 90% covered for UCI.  Planning out the road to surgery

Where is some before and after member result pictures. Like to see some of those instead of how it works. Maybe they are here somewhere?

Yeah... You are asking questions in the wrong thread, and undermining ''thinkpositive'' in the process. You want to question things? Sure. Open your own thread on the subject, discussing the legitimacy of the device and I am sure people will be pleased to chime in. But this thread is about using restorex, and the person is asking for advice on it. You don't agree with that? See above. 

Especially when this device was developed by a board certified urologist, working at a very prestigious hospital in America, and the device already has legitimate studies published on well known urology journals. Not to mention the improvement thinkpositive had and which he kindly shared pictures of. A thing many did not do.

So be considerate next time around.
