Title: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 06, 2018, 10:22:59 PM
Hey guys,

I am new to restorex. I have a 5.5 inch stretched flaccid length with my bend at about 3 inches from the top of my penis. I started to use it, but I find the clamp a bit painful at first. I am not sure how far I should clamp it safely? What I am mostly looking for is some tips on starting off and maybe some pitfalls that youve encountered. I always have one hand on the restorex when it is spring loaded and locked down...I feel like if that spring went loose it would be goodbye dick!

I also havent allowed it to go to full tension yet because it feels like a lot of pull for me so I am trying to ease into it.

Any help would be beneficial thanks!

I’ve found when it isn’t clamped tight enough it slips out rather slowly, never had it snap out do to speak.  It took me several weeks to get to maximimum stretch.  I’d recommend following the restorex schedule on how long each day.  I pushed it but def eased into it.  I’m up to an hour at a time, but restorex recommends 30 min on, 30 min off before beginning again.  I really prefer the restorex as it is a consistent good stretch.

Is everything set up to accommodate all your measurements? The clamp has 3 height adjustments, as three others for the location of intended area of curve to correct. The height screws are tiny. Make sure the height is  set up so it clicks at least twice. The more even it locks, the less pinching you'll have on one side.

Remove the clamp and place your penis in it while it's unattached from the rest of the device. Notice the raised ridges on the clamp. That's where your glans should line up with. Wrap the glans twice.

With the body locked, place the clamp back in. Pull some of the scrotal tissue(plumbing from the scrotum to the penis) through the grove at the bottom of the ring.

Maybe practice with it for a week or so just straight stretching and making sure everything is comfortable. Ease into proper tension after you're comfortable with the device.

To avoid worry about it unlocking, figure out how to advance it using both hands, as if the device couldn't lock. It's difficult to explain but it's really simple. I'd hold it down and use my index fingers and thumbs to move it forward a notch.

If you don't have any pain when erect or in general, you shouldn't while wearing the device. Just focus on comfort. Takes some getting used to, but super quick once you get it down.

Yeah, I think that since my curve is lower and closer to my body, the tension is pretty high starting off. still above the white line, but more than I am used to with the PMP. It is at the lowest tension so I need to hold it down with my hand a bit and slowly lift over the course of a few minutes. Im going to ease my way into the white mark. Also, how tight do you wrap your dick? I find that if I wrap it loosely I get pain from friction from the wrap.

Hey guys... As I was reading this I was thinking... Are there any YouTube videos yet, about people using the device? I know it's quite new but... Gotta check that out. Maybe it's a bit of a stretch, but tSanchez and whatnext could do some instructional videos on the device!
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: Tsanchez12369 on April 07, 2018, 01:33:46 PM
I’d go with whatever wrap tightness is comfortable...I haven’t had any problems w it. A you tube video sounds great, I could supply some pics if that’s helpful to anyone who can do it, just PM me.

Swiss-I take it you're using the shorter rods? And even at the first notch it's too much starting off? I think you said you measured 5.5" flaccid. It might just be a mental thing as you have more length than the minimal needed to use it. Is it just feeling of too much tension that you're not used to? Or are you getting pinching or discomfort? If so, where? Are you laying down, sitting, etc while wearing it? I had a good amount of plaque near the base as well.

As far as friction with the self-adheasive wrap, yes, wrap it as snug as you can making sure you can wear it for 30 mins while doing traction. Don't pull your penis while wrapping. I wrapped mine so there were no gaps, at the end of my penis, between the self adheasive wrap and the penis.

-Wrap it so there's no friction caused by loose tape.
-Your penis doesn't slip away from the tape.-Not to be confused with the clamp not being tight enough.
-Wrap it as if you are making it tailored fit for your penis, avoiding any bunching, loose gaps, etc.

how do you guys know for sure where to counter-bend via the Restorex? What if you counterbend at the wrong place?
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on April 08, 2018, 11:28:39 PM
It's all in the instructions on how to set it up. You take measurements according to the instructions and it walks you through on how to make the adjustments to the device. You only have to do the setup once.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 09, 2018, 11:36:51 AM
Whatnext- I think it probably is a mental thing as I am a bit overly cautious. I think my dick tenses up when I try to get it full stretch. But yeah I'm a little scared to increase the tension so I will do so slowly as time goes on and Work up to the white line
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: Tsanchez12369 on April 09, 2018, 06:27:38 PM
With time the stretch really increases, I have to add the longer rods now after a couple months of use.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 12, 2018, 06:39:18 PM
does that mean your erect length has increased?

My flaccid stretch has for sure.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 13, 2018, 12:34:42 AM
Interesting that flaccid stretch has increased but not boned size. Any tips for having it not slip out? That's my current issue with it at this moment. Is there a better tape I can use?

Thanks!
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: Tsanchez12369 on April 13, 2018, 09:18:53 AM
I use OTC walgreens 2” self adhesive (does not adhere to skin).  Still need to remove carefully.  I generally wrap x3, I reuse the wrap as it sticks to skin less w time.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 13, 2018, 11:55:26 AM
How much below the glans do you wrap it? Do you wrap it pretty tight?
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: Tsanchez12369 on April 13, 2018, 12:01:48 PM
Full wrap around glans x3, then overlap somewhat and wrap around top of shaft x3.

Post by: swiss on April 13, 2018, 04:19:25 PM
Do you leave the tip not wrapped? That's the only part that gets purple after a session, the Meatus swells a bit for a few minutes after. I'm also getting some slippage with the tape. If I wrap it to tight it's hard to clamp down, too loose I get some slippage/ pain from friction. Thoughts? How far do I clamp it in? Right now I'm just clamping the glans only any not passed the glans at all.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 13, 2018, 04:29:01 PM
It actually managed to rub off some skin and draw some blood from the bandage slippage during the pull. There has got to be some kind of better wrap than this that's not gonna slip and cause this kind of issue....I'm not circumcised so the skin is very soft and sensitive. Does anyone know what grams pull equivalent on the PMP that the restorex is set to? Can anyone find that out for me if this thing doesnt work out? Sort of disappointed in drawing blood...don't typically like my skin getting rubbed off though I will keep going with it for the duration of the 30 day money back guarantee they have.
 

Update: Just got off with a rep and he said I dont have to wrap it...so I am going to give that a shot. Fingers crossed. Also, for reference, the restorex has 3lbs of pull aka 1060 grams or something like that.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: Tsanchez12369 on April 13, 2018, 06:21:21 PM
I sometimes clamp the head and part of the shaft to hold it more securely.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 14, 2018, 02:32:32 AM
Yeahhhh after a few days of use I think the restorex isn't for me. I'm gonna keep trying with the PMP but at higher tensions -960grams instead of the restorex's 1050grams of pull. I feel like I may get similar results with less time in the device. The restorex is a dope device and I'm really bummed but I find the PMP more comfortable.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on April 14, 2018, 05:31:07 AM
RestoreX is around 3lbs with the white line just not visable. If you really bury it, it's around 6lbs. I used the Walgreens stuff and it didn't stick at all and made it very uncomfortable. I returned the wrap. Walmart sells rolls of 2" wide wrap that is rather spongy and has a cushion feel to it. It's not a Walmart brand. $5 for a two pack. It sticks better than the 3m wrap. I liked it better than the 3m stuff that came with the device.

Since it's thicker, I only wrapped it twice. Since it's 2" wide, it covers the glans and far enough down on the shaft without having to get creative to wrap it.

I would avoid clamping on the shaft as much as possible. Clamp it down just behind the top of your head, so the glans sit on the groove/lip that you can see on the clamp. Wrap it without stretching your penis. This was the most comfortable way for me. With the thicker wrap, I had to adjust the height of the clamp.

Things I noticed. Thin wrap and less sticky wrap made it pinch, slip and hurt. I started with the short rods. When I got the wrap thing down, and comfortable with the device I was using the long extension rods and could stretch to 6 visable notches. I think that would be 8 notches extended out as some notches are not visable. I kept track by counting the visable ones after I was done and had the device off. I was able to stretch it with no discomfort. If there was some, I'd adjust how it was sitting on my pelvis, arrange my scrotum, etc. Laying down worked best for me. I'd used a bunched up blanket for it to rest against to take some pressure off the testies. Some days I couldn't stretch it as far. Or would just do 30 mins a day if my dick just wasn't feeling it.

I spent time easing into it and went much slower than the instructions called for. Hopefully you didn't just jump right into 30 min sessions. I wore it for 10 mins at a time while getting it down. I also wasn't in a rush as I had some time before I started xiaflex.

It does lengthen your errect size. There's even a way to measure your errect length while flaccid. I had mine measured while flaccid at an appointment.

The white line being visable is the least amount of tension. The further you bury it, the more tension is being applied. In the instructions it says to advance when the white lines become visible. That's because tissue has expanded and you advance to the next notch on the extension rods to bury the white line again to apply more force/tension. Perhaps you started out the hard way?

1st day with Restorex........and I can tell you this thing is easily one of the best devices I have tried.  It seems like it is providing max tension, no noose to deal with, and was a pretty easy set up.  I am hoping this yields some results in a few months
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on April 19, 2018, 12:17:19 AM
Pretty bummed it didn't work for me. ☹️ does anyone bury it to 6lbs? It seems like that's asking to get injured? I think it's just recommended to be past the white line.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: betterbend on April 20, 2018, 09:14:51 PM
USed it for the first time today.  10 minutes straight and 3 minutes bent down.  I can't imagine being able to pull it so far forward that the white line disappears, my skin felt like it was ripping.  Does the white line disappear just by moving it up the notche? It seems like it was not moving easily on the tension rods..
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on April 21, 2018, 06:29:25 AM
I was instructed to really bury the white line. Ease into it and listen to your body.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on April 21, 2018, 06:31:13 AM
Betterbend, have you watched the video on the RestoreX website? That might help.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: betterbend on April 21, 2018, 12:11:31 PM
I did ... It seems that as i increase tension the white line doesnt move, hence the painful pinching on the skin.  I can push the clamp back and the white line disappears, and the tension lowers, but that isnt how it should work.  The clamp just doesn't move the easy as the tension increases.  I am going to play around a little to see if I can get used to it.  Probably call the company on Monday. Also trying to figure out where the glans should be.  Right now I have if fully inside the clamp with the valley between the glans and shaft 1/2 way in.  Everything feel fine after use, except the glans is a bit sore

Over the last 3 weeks I've used RestoreX once for 30mins per the drs request at my
final evaluation. I've noticed that my flaccid length has less fluctuation(short to hanging low) compared to when I was using it 60mins a day. Overall my flaccid penis is more soft/spongy, like it was before peyronie's. I was really burying the white line during my daily use, as my dr suggested.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 02, 2018, 12:48:36 AM
So I figured out how to use this thing. It took a long time to get right. I found some extra sticky tape similar to what they had in the box, I first wrap it in soft gauze, then tape it up. I'm starting to bury the white line. So far. I've noticed a healthier feeling penis and maybe some more flexibility, but not any major change to my dent. Still using VED daily as well. Penis feels good otherwise.

My dent took around 4 months to go away. It was near the base of my penis.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 02, 2018, 08:48:05 AM
Mine is near the base too!! Did you use the opposite angular force? I feel like with this device the platform that creates that opposite angle is too high for plaques located lower on the totem pole! Thoughts?
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: ronjohnson09 on May 02, 2018, 09:31:09 AM
I'm kinda in the same boat.  Im still doing the angular traction.  My thinking is that it is still stretching that side on the base harder and that is what will help straighten it out
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on May 02, 2018, 01:18:28 PM
I did bend opposite, but I also had a curve to the right. By the time my curve had resolved, the dent was better but still there. I continued using it with a lot tension just straight out. Do you have the clamp head in the furthest away position? With proper clamp placement, you can really feel the tension on the desired location.

I started each 30 min session 15mins straight. Then the last 15 bending opposite of curve. Remeber to kind of start over when switching to correct curve. You're going to go back a few notches, then start slow with the first angle correction position, then release it slowly, just like you normally would.

Ronnohnson09 has the right idea.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: betterbend on May 02, 2018, 01:41:47 PM
Using it for about 10 days now, had a really weird reaction today.  I could only get the clamp down 1 click (that is how I usually do it) and could only go to position 2 on the downward angle (sometimes I can get to 3), I slipped out today during the bent downward stretch (about 9 minutes in).  I had already done the 15 minute straight stretch.  I put the glans back in and pushed hard to clamp it down 2 notches like the recommendation, and then went for position 3 on the downward stretch for the last 5 minutes.  Clamping it down was hard and a bit painful and the 3rd position was also very stretched out (was uncomfortable). 

When I finished my glans was really misshapen, looked like fluid blisters all over, and the meatus looked like a bad lip collagen job.  I was a bit panicked, because it then turned a purple color and I though I might have done some damage.  I took a warm shower and applied some heat after about 10-15 minutes it seemed to look better, but was a little bit sore in the glans.  I looked pretty scary for a few minutes. 

Two questions:

Anybody have something like that?  I am guessing the clamp was too tight and I put the glans too far into it after the slip out?

Also on the straight stretch I can get all the way out to one notch left after about 10 minutes, but on the bent stretch I can only get maybe 1-2 notches up from the base position.  Is anybody else seeing that type of difference in the two stretches? 

Appreciate any insight
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: curved on May 02, 2018, 02:13:50 PM
Like betterbend, I too, could use a bit of advice on positioning of the glans in the clamp.  I adjusted the height but can't get the clamp down more than 1 notch without some pain.  Because of this I sometimes "slip" out particularly in the downward bend.

Any advice would be appreciated especially since people seem to be having some positive results with RestoreX

Thx.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 02, 2018, 02:31:23 PM
So I go into it one notch, I wait and then I just slam it down to the second notch, it hurts a bit but its getting better. I try to make sure I know that Im not clamping below the head. I also triple wrap it like others have said here with 2 inch gauze and that helps...but one thing I do that others dont...

I bought some soft gauze and I wrap the head in that first. It reduced my pain A LOT.

Good luck homie!

I would say my lips get smashed looking and janked/ purple as well...but it looked worse in the PMP. Be careful.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: ronjohnson09 on May 02, 2018, 04:15:55 PM
I use this non-stick 1" wrap as a single layer.  I then use the 2" self adhesive thicker wrap I purchased from Walmart on top in a single layer.  I like this method bc it doesn't hurt like hell when you remove it. I like to do 15minutes straight, 15 minutes bent, then 3 minutes straight to see how much of a lengthening stretch I can get.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: pfract on May 02, 2018, 08:53:06 PM
Hey Swiss: what do you mean by lips?

Also, guys... Just curious here.. After a stretching session... How does your penis feel? It hurts? Turtles back? Gets stiff, soft? Do you masturbate right after?
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on May 02, 2018, 11:43:19 PM
Swiss, do you put the device back into the locked position when advancing to the next notch? Then release(unlocked position) and slowly release the body of the device back out, burying the white line again?
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 03, 2018, 12:10:28 PM
Yes, no way I could advance that without locking it up again.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: ronjohnson09 on May 03, 2018, 01:24:01 PM
100% agree with swiss
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on May 03, 2018, 01:57:26 PM
Swiss. Okay-just checking.

I use the 2" wrap from Walmart as well. Nice and spongy.  To avoid pain while removing, I roll it off with my fingers putting pressure down near the skin where the wrap is being removed.

Are any of you putting the clamp on while it's off the device? Then clipping it into the device once you're in?
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 03, 2018, 02:02:38 PM
Yes, I clip then place into the holder and then extend. I went three notches down yesterday...I think it was too much. Glans are a little sore now.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: betterbend on May 03, 2018, 02:40:20 PM
Thanks for the tips.  I have been using the coban tape provided, but I hate pulling that stuff off, its like pulling a  bandaid off a some hair.  I tried gauze the first day with the coban over it, but it was too thick and I could barely snap in down.   
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: ronjohnson09 on May 03, 2018, 05:07:42 PM
I have been clamping it on while it is still on the device with no issues so far
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on May 03, 2018, 07:08:53 PM
Yeah. It can be done either way. Doing it with it off can make it easier for some. Helps to get familiar with making sure your glans are in the right spot. It's just a tip I recall from either the instructions or what the dr told me.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: ronjohnson09 on May 03, 2018, 07:41:14 PM
I have also found a very thin layer of toilet paper under the wrap has worked well and no issue of slipping
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on May 03, 2018, 08:45:27 PM
I never had an issue with slipping. I just made sure the clamp was in the right position and the wrap was on evenly. At one point i was bending 90 degrees.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: ronjohnson09 on May 03, 2018, 09:02:37 PM
I started to have an issue with the wrap irritating the underside of my penis so I experimented with the thin toilet paper barrier to prevent skin contact.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?

My restorex broke this morning >:( ... it wont lock anymore when I try to use the spring-loaded feature.  Fortunately still usable, but I found that feature very good for initial putting it on, and also would use it to adjust tension.  Only had it two weeks, so kind of disappointing..

Call pathright medical. They'll take care of ya. They'll send a new one out with a free return shipping label for the non functioning one to be returned. I had a new one arrive two days after I called when I had that issue.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 08, 2018, 10:03:51 AM
So here's a tip. I snapped it down three notches and hurt myself. I think two clicks is enough to hold it.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 08, 2018, 10:06:28 AM
Yo. That is terrifying that the spring loader broke. Always have one hand on that thing in case it busts and decides to suddenly rip your dick into two parts. Safe stretching!
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: WhatNext81 on May 08, 2018, 03:24:08 PM
Did you call to have it replaced? Also, did they explain the reason for the issue?

That's solid advice learned the hard way. Since day one I've always practiced using it with one hand, when in the locked position, for safety reasons. Remeber to never store it in the locked position.

Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: swiss on May 11, 2018, 10:58:12 AM
Anyone here get some swollen meatus after smashing your dick in this thing? It was worse in the PMP for me but I still get the edema. Kinda annoying since now I get it after an erection too.....like it's a permanent thing now after I get hard....😒 whatever I guess.
Title: Re: Tips for Restorex?
Post by: betterbend on May 12, 2018, 11:06:50 AM
Received my replacement Restorex.  I never stretch so far with it in the locked position that if it fails it would rip my dick off.  I start out for 2-3 minutes at very light traction right at the white line or even lighter.  Then I lock it down, move it 1-2 clicks tighter and release it.  If after 5 minutes it feel good I repeat to make it tighter. 

I used some gauze wrap under the coban today, and it felt better,  the only thing is it's so think now I can barely click down once.  my glans also looks so weird when I am done.  My hope is there isn't any damage by doing this twice a day.

Have you adjusted the height of the camp? That might help. There's 3 adjustments. Tiny screws. I'm not referring to the clamp adjustment for curvature correction.

Okay, so it's my impression, or we have two guys here with a swollen penis glans, after using Restorex?

Also, what do you mean by ''weird looking glans? '' Betterbend?

You are talking about the screws correct?  I thought there was only two adjustments with that

I messed around with the height adjustments when I first got it. One tip-count how many notches you click down when using. Take it off and clamp it to that spot without your penis in it. Does it look overall semetrical? Or further down on one side? Make adjustments accordingly. With the amount  tension it can provide, all the adjustments can make a huge difference and more comfortable.

Will have to check it out when I get home.  For me its the real downside to this device.  I like everything else about it, but the clamping down is uncomfortable.  I have the screws in the higher position, but with a piece of gauze wrapped only once and then coban wrapped twice, i struggle to close it even one notch.  I dont think I am that thick, maybe slightly above average, but its a problem.

Sorry P, i didnt even see your post.  When I am done I my glans often has fluid like blisters, they go away, but the first time it was unnerving. Some times the outside of the meatus is swollen, looks like a bad collagen injection into a womans lips.  Again it goes away after a few minutes.  But I do wonder if all the squashing down of the glans can cause damage.  I dont love the design of the clamp

Yeah. That doesn't sound right or comfortable. Have you reached out to any forms of customer service? I'd be worried about possible long term side effects.

Betterbend- Yes, two adjustments for height. See picture below. The clamp on the left is in the highest position. The one on the right is the location straight from the box. They are both closed at the same  location, 2 "clicks" down. The difference is even more obvious in person.

Now, depending on how your device is set up, curvature correction upward/downward or left to right, your clamp is going to close down on the top and bottom of the glans like shown on page 17. If it's set up for left/right, the clamp is closing down on the left and right sides of the glans. The key is making sure everything lines up and is straight to avoid discomfort. Keep it off the shaft and go for symmetry. Glan plaxement is important! What might feel fine without much tension may not with more force. A good indicator to troubleshoot for adjustments/changes. Pages 13 and 14 for clamp height adjustment.

Page 12 demonstrates adjusting the clamp location, which is very important for bending opposite the curve. This is very important and probably not well understood by those who haven't used it. I originally had a curve to the right. I later had a mild upward bend near the head of the penis. The difference in the placement of the clamp location makes the stretched tension, for curvature correction, more localized. It's very apparent in use. Im sure this isn't all new to you, but thought I'd elaborate on the clamp in case the info might be of value to others. Hope this helps.
