the forearm is rarely under a lot of tension so all it took was that and silicon sheets and her scar is essentially invisble.

I do not know how one could achieve a lack of tension in the instance of penile implant surgery...

I think it depends on the technique or approach.  Most doctors use the scrotal approach which I had.   My scar is not essentially invisible, it IS invisible even with a magnifying glass.  It was only about a 1' verticle incision on my scrotum right on the seam raphe (seam).  I only had 3 stitches and a bead waterproofing placed on the incision.  My stitches were removed at 14 days.  At 21 days neither my wife nor I could find the incision scar.

Some use a scrotal approach with a horizontal incision which is more difficult to hide.  Also, some use an infra pubic approach that requires a horizontal incision in the pubic fat pad above the penis.  You have to depend on a regrowth of pubic hair to hide that scar.  In my view, the infra pubic approach is fraught with many more drawbacks than just the scar.  Tube routing and potential nerve damage are just two concerns.

CASE REPORT
A  40-years  male  patient  of  Kolkata  metro  region,  attended Hospital OPD of National Research Institute of Ayurvedic Drug Development,  Kolkata,  with  complain  as  follows:    Unusual angulation of the penile shaft when erect, pain during erections and/or  during  sex.  Patient  felt  difficulties  while  on  sexual activity and gradually  developed  plaques with slightly bending since  6  months. Patient did  not  have  any history of  injury. On examination he revealed; height 1.7 m, body weight 71 kg (BMI 24.57 kg/m2), Scarring or  plaque palpated at  the abnormal bend or  angle  of  the  penis,  palpable  of  an  indentation  of  the  penis shaft  at  the  site  of  the  plaque  or  scarring  & inability  to  have intercourse.  He  had  a  treatment  history  of  vitamin ‘E’ supplementation  along  with  some  Non-steroidal  anti-inflammatory  drugs  and  anti-biotic  for  15  days.  He  found euglycaemic and normotensive. He  was habituated to take non-veg diet, and smoking 3-4 cigarette per day. He had an irregular bowel  problem  with  normal  bladder  and  adequate  sleeping habits. Family history was not suggestive.

Manual examination revealed; 10  no. of  plaques on ventral  part and 7  no. of plaques on  dorsal part of the penis by stretching it with  one  hand  and  gently  compressing  the  shaft  between  the fingers  and  thumb  of  the  other  hand.  Localized  tenderness elicited  on  superficial  palpation  and  20  to  30  degree  of  the penile curvature has  been  observed  and  the  presence of  penile shortening  was  not  remarkably  identified.  There  was  no established abnormality disclosed during systemic examination.

Laboratory investigation : A  Biopsy  sent  for  study  and  found  to  be  scar  tissue  and diagnosed as  Peyronie’s disease.  Human cell  antigen, HLA-B7 has  not  been  associated  with  the  disease.  USG  of  penis  with high  frequency  (7.5-12MHz)  linear  high  transducer  suggested penile  plaques,  seen  as  focal  hyper  echoic  thickening  of  the tunica albuginea, exhibiting strong echogenicity with substantial attenuation of the acoustic beam.

Treatment  plan :The  case  was  prescribed  with  Kanchanar Guggulu at a dosage of 1 gm. thrice daily with Luke warm water after food for 6 weeks and followed up  for another two weeks. He also advised to attend the OPD at an interval of one week.

RESULT : Based  on  the  schedule  of  the  administration  of  drug  and assessment  criteria  the  case  was  clinically  assessed  on  every week till the end of 8 weeks. There was reduction in the number and  size  of  plaques  observed  after  2  weeks  of  treatment  and remarkably reduction noticed at the end of 6 weeks. Pain during erection of penis observed after  1 week  of treatment. Curvature of  penis  reduced  remarkably up  to 10  degrees  after  6  week  of treatment.  Correction  of  erection  also  found  improved  after  6 weeks  of  treatment.  USG  done  after  6  weeks  of  treatment revealed  the  two  corpora  cavernosa  are  homogenous  in  echo texture and identified as two hypo echoic circular structure. The tunica albuginea is  visualized as  linear as  hyperechoic structure covering the corpora cavernosa.
The various actions  attributed by the  drug  are due to  analgesic and  anti-inflammatory,  anti-microbial,  Hypolipidemic, fibrinolytic  and  anti-tumor  activities  of  various  ingredients present in the  formulation.  The  main pathogenesis  involved in the  Peyronies Disease  is  atheroma,  vasculitis  and  auto  immune  factors.  The drug  might  have  reversed the  exact  path  way  involved  in  the genesis of disease. From  this  investigation, it  observed that,  there  is a  significant progress  noticed  in  respect  of  overall  clinical  assessment criteria.

Two things are to be noted : 1. These morons are too lazy so tested this on only one man. 2. He took vitamin E and some other medicines for 15 days before this anceint treatment, so may be this result can be due to those medicines also.

But still we should give it a try. When i searched the medicine on google, its one dollar $1 medicine for one month, LOL. Unfortunately its not available in my country. I request if thers an indian guy on this forum please try this and share the results with us. thanks

Expert closure, moisture and lack of tension are the keys to minimising the appearance of surgical scars. When my sister had plates taken out of her arms, my parents had a plastic surgeon come at the end to remove the old scars and close the wound. The skin on the middle of the forearm is rarely under a lot of tension so all it took was that and silicon sheets and her scar is essentially invisble.

I do not know how one could achieve a lack of tension in the instance of penile implant surgery...

I tried cutting and pasting hawks comments and adding my own but it didn’t work very well...

“I fight that tendency that people have to promote their most recent lifestyle change on others.  You know the examples of the smoker who quits after 30 years now crusades for his friends to quit to the point they want to shove a sock in his mouth.  At the same time, I am here, active on the forum because i owe it to our members to help them through my experiences...I considered making this an entry in my journal but thought it might result in discussion that best goes in its own topic so I am posting it here.”

Such a great post Hawk, my journey has many similarities but some differences as well.

“ I feel like I treated and battled ED for 14 years with varying degrees of success or failure depending on your point of view.”

I too battled ED for many years, prob more like 20.  PDE5 inhibitors were quite effective up until about two years ago.  At that time I tried injections which worked great but gave me peyronies—quite severe at 90 degrees w severe narrowing/hourglassing.

“In addition to time in battle tactics training, there was an awful lot of time in battle fitness conditioning in traction and VED use. This battle required equipment and supply purchases.  There was a LOT of money dumped into this war because there was always the hope that one more thing would give me that edge I needed to make progress against the enemy.  Like every war, win or lose, you pay a price.  For me, the price of this fifteen-year battle was not just a huge amount of time, effort, money, and mental energy, it was also forfeiting well over an inch of length.”

I gave myself one year to try all the peyronies treatments with the hope I could return to injections.  That was because Dr Lue believes the peyronies was a result of me not compressing the injection site for 8-9 minutes after each injection to stop all internal bleeding which results in microtrauma and peyronies. I thought I only needed to stop the external bleeding.

This I went through all the treatments. Themultimodal anti-oxidants w heat, pentox, traction (3 different devices including ESL-40, PMP & restorex), VED, H-100, and xiaflex.  This all reduced the angle to about 60 degrees and I did more than the recommended rounds of Xiaflex.  I also had lost an inch in length.

Meanwhile. A side effect of the pentox resulted in a septic and emergency removal of my gallbladder.

At this point I had read posts such as hawks and realized I didn’t want to sacrifice any more time, money AND length.  I researched implants, docs and decided to go w the west coast high implant Dr Karpman since I was able to change my insurance and have him in my panel at no expense.  My diary explains some of my thinking on this, but bottom line unuseabke dick even if I resorted back to injections meant no other options.  I tend to jump in pretty quickly after weighing my options so just a little after one year of peyronies I’m on my way to recovery.  I too hope that I can also say I’m cured!

I fight that tendency that people have to promote their most recent lifestyle change on others.  You know the examples of the smoker who quits after 30 years now crusades for his friends to quit to the point they want to shove a sock in his mouth.  At the same time, I am here, active on the forum because i owe it to our members to help them through my experiences.

I considered making this an entry in my journal but thought it might result in discussion that best goes in its own topic so I am posting it here.

This is my point of view.  Since this post is what I think about implants it will reveal what an implant did to my mind as well as what it did to my penis.  This implant did cause me to think differently. 
I could feel a desire to try to explain my feeling growing in the last few weeks.  I was not sure how I would try to get my point across when I started this post.  As I read over it I am surprised at all the warfare analogies this post took.  That was not planned.  It just happened.

I feel like I treated and battled ED for 14 years with varying degrees of success or failure depending on your point of view.  Like every real battle, it occupied a lot of my thinking.  Some of that was intense battle planning where I would use all my facilities to see how to attack the enemy.  Like any battle, there were many emotions.  At various times there were fear, depression, hope, frustration, fatigue, and more.  Just like battle preparation, there was experimentation or practice runs to see if a battle concept would work in real life.  There were training exercises with a willing partner just to see what works.  In addition to time in battle tactics training, there was an awful lot of time in battle fitness conditioning in traction and VED use. This battle required equipment and supply purchases.  There was a LOT of money dumped into this war because there was always the hope that one more thing would give me that edge I needed to make progress against the enemy.  Like every war, win or lose, you pay a price.  For me, the price of this fifteen-year battle was not just a huge amount of time, effort, money, and mental energy, it was also forfeiting well over an inch of length.

In addition to the moments of intense focus, there was the ever-present awareness that was almost but not quite at a subconscious level.  It was like how a cop automatically scans a parking lot and notices the activity through a store window so he doesn't stroll into a robbery in progress and become a prime target when he enters a convenience store just to buy a pen or a pack of gum.  The way a defensive driver is always calculating what mindless thing another driver might do and how he calculates a safety buffer around his vehicle.  That part is no a high emotional process.  it becomes an ingrained "second nature" way of responding.  I would do that with ED.  If I thought there was some chance intimacy would develope I was careful not to consume fatty food that would slow absorption of ED drugs,  I would make sure my VED, bands, or other aids were organized and in easy access.

It took 15 years for me to recognize the possible plan that could strike a decisive blow to this enemy.  I had to educate myself on what seemed like a risky plan.  Being over analytical by nature it took years to struggle with and research every "what if" scenario.  Each time reservations and caution kept me slugging it out in the trenches with this enemy.  Every year the cost of this battle took a little more.  It took 15 years for me to battle myself into a corner where I was so unsatisfied with the prospect of victory I was ready to say " the hell with possible consequences.  Finally, I executed the master plan I had avoided with an attitude of "Damn the enemy, damn the torpedos, full speed ahead".  At that point I never looked back, never had second thoughts.  I knew I was going to do this.

The result was, from my point of view, victory.  It was not a cease-fire, not an disarmament, but a victory.  I don't feel I have a good solution to ED.  I feel I was cured of ED.  I feel the war was won.  No more resources of time and money poured down that hole, no more of those almost subconscious accommodations I made because of ED.  They are slowly fading.  I know I am not immune to another attack, WW1 is over.  I won.  If I ever experience a new attack, that will be WWII not a continuation of this war.  I will deal with that if that time ever comes. 

I am here not because I feel like a decorated war hero.  I am here because I blundered.  My indecision drug this war on for years at a cost my wife and I that we should have never had to pay.  That was my fault.  I am here to bring the master plan to view so you can execute a far more efficient battle strategy, so you can study my blunders and execute a victor in a fraction of the time.

VICTORY!

I'm in the process of going through stem cell treatment; I've already had one round of treatment (fat stem cell/prp injected into penis/IV into bloodstream) and am getting another one soonish. I gained a little under half an inch of girth back and had improvement in a major dent in the worst portion of my penis (top third). Overall my assessment of the procedure is: helpful, but definitely overpriced.

Also, about priapus shots: they're basically PRP shots. Shockwave treatment seems to have no effect on Peyronie's, and a small effect on ED. In my mind it is most useful for homing in stem cells to the area treated, hence why they use it at certain stem cell clinics for ED/Peyronie's.

Hey Birdman

Yes, please post your updates.

I am 7 weeks into 16 hr fasts and keto....basically slashed the bad carbs; sugar, bread, pasta rice. I have burned off all belly fat, got rid of bloating and flatulence, improved skin tone and lowered anxiety. Man how sugar messes up your body. The Autophagy process has been working as my skin tags are shrinking and falling off. I am feeling better overall.

As for the Peyronies, I have noticed a reduction in plaque  but not enough yet to improve the curve and dent. I am being patient with that. The first thing is to get your body functioning as evolution had intended, and the rest should take care of itself.

Happy Cannabis day

Zipolite

Where did you get the stemcells done at? Has anyone tried gainswave? I was only using cialis and pentox and I felt like my condition stabilized but 5 weeks ago it got way worse so now I'm desperate for any help.
