Egydio and Kuehhas are two of the very best. However, be aware that they are not miracle workers.

Make an appointment and see what is advisable.

It really does depend on your individual situation. Degree of curvature. Extent of sexual incapacity, presence of calcification, etc.

In my case - extreme curvature with calcification- surgery via the Egydio technique worked. That and a lot of post op dedication and application to therapy via traction and VED.

I just responded to your other post on VED..
One thing my Doc stressed was the Xiaflex alone with no modeling will not be nearly as effective as with.....
You probably should not just stop everything.....At least do the conservative protocols until you can figure out what you want to do......
Good Luck......

smithy,
I have the exact same question. I know the VED protocol on this board and it is much more conservative than the one my Doc gave me.
I'm waiting for my second round in a couple of weeks to discuss w my Doc........
I too have had communication with "old man" and he seems to have put his heart in this and helping people. If your reading this " Old Man " thank you.......
I have decided to use a combo of my Docs more aggressive approach and the boards less aggressive approach until I get to discuss with my Doc.....
My Doc is well known and was on the board to get Xiaflex approved in addition he said he's done at least 150 patients.....
His Protocol is
                    Pump 3 seconds hold for 10 then release
                    Pump 6 seconds hold for 10 then release
                    Pump 10 seconds hold for 10 then release
                    Pump to fully engorge penis ( stretched feeling, no pain ) hold for 60 seconds
                    Pump to fully engorge hold for 3 minutes then release
                    Pump to fully engorge hold for 5 minutes then release
This to ideally be done twice daily...............I know some folks here totally disagree with this approach but like I said I'm combining the two until I can discuss w my Doc.....
This whole journey is just a blast isn't it ?

BopIt............I want to throw in another side effect of Pentox.  It can cause Severe Constipation in some people.  The constipation starts at about 4 weeks after taking pentox.  This mainly happens to older people, like 70 years and older.  It is said that about 71% of people in that age bracket will get the terrible constipation, I know, I was one of them.  I quit taking it.  It was the only side effect I experienced.  dplookin

Vitamin C is ascorbatic acid. Source for vitamin C not curing scurvy?


Pay a visit to the magnesium advocacy group I linked to.  There is all of the material necessary to understand what I am saying and then some.  Vitamin C is legally defined as Ascorbic Acid, but that is only a small part of actual Vitamin C.  Vitamin C cures scurvy.  Ascorbic Acid does not.

The list goes on.

I have read the protocols on the forum, and have had some communication with "old man" and I appreciate it.

But, like everything else, there are so many different opinions about protocol.  Has anyone had any REAL results

a VED or Traction Device?  I am ready to do what I have to do, and I know that its a marathon, but it is hard for

me to commit to something, not even knowing if it is the right protocol. Spending months or even year doing something
that is not going to be effective at all, because it isn't being done the right way seems like a waste of time and money.


One thing that I stumbled on while researching was an actual medical study/trial. In it 51% of the participants had
good enough results in erection quality, curvature, and pain, that they cancelled having surgery.

51% odds, sounds good to me!  I'll take it...at least there is some hope there!

Was wondering if anyone else has experience with the method/protocol that they used?

Read the study for exact details, but basically they slowly pumped to full erection and held it for 3 minutes, and did this for 10 minutes twice a day.

I know that the protocols on here recommend only going to 50% fearing it would be harmful to do otherwise. Now, I understand that you can overpump and cause injury, but if it is ok to pump up to full erection with a VED for ED issues, what is the harm in doing so for therapy? And it seems that there is at least some evidence from the study to support that this worked for some men?

Here is a link to the study The role of vacuum pump therapy to mechanically straighten the penis in Peyronie’s disease - Raheem - 2010 - BJU International - Wiley Online Library

Just sounding off, I guess. I am so frustrated by all of this. I research and research and everytime I find something that looks like it might just have a little hope....The more I read, the less hopeful it is.

Honestly, I haven't been using my pump or traction device, becasue there is so much conflicting information. One says it works, another says it does nothing, and on top of that, there are 45 different opinions about how to use them.

Read about the P-Shot the other day. I had not even heard of it...got excited, thinking that I have finally found an answer...but the more I read, the more it seemed like just another thing to dump money into, for no results.

Has anyone out there had any REAL SUCCESS? I know that not everything works for everyone, but are there any REAL SUCCESS stories out there?

I am willing to do whatever I have to do, buy whatever I have to buy, and I am ready to follow through for the long haul.

But I don't know WHAT to do? Is there anything that ACTUALLY works?

We are many out there, so many..the cure or what is supposed to be the cure is actually worse than the disease. And no one looks noticing it.. every time the same excuse..my first failure, never heard about this and so on. I wonder when this slaughter will ever end..
STAGE can be failure as well, mine failed, especially when it comes to already operated penises..it might not be proper to straighten fibrotic and tight and inelastic penises..
