Norm,

Quantifiable improvements are hard to come by in the Peyronies Disease business.  As I have said before on the forum, being stable and not having any pain during and after sex is progress, in my opinion.  I have, however, gone from a 45 to a 35 degree curve and have not lost a lot of length or girth due to Peyronies Disease.  I attribute that to the VED and supplements.

If any of you are thinking about reversing the effects of Peyronies Disease in a few weeks or months, I wish you the best, but I think you will be disappointed.  Fighting this disease is a marathon, not a sprint.

I am not trying to be pessimistic, just trying to be realistic.

After one year on VED and gradually added medications/supplements to my treatment the sharp left bent close to the base get less sharp. The upward banana curve get also a little bit less.
I also get back 1/2" from the 2&1/2" lost to peyronies and some girth back also. It may sound not much, but it is for me.
I wish I begin treatment early and not three years after the Peyronies begone.

I still have some spare plastic for making smaller Augusta internal device tubes.  I will send 8 inch pieces to requestors for the price of shipping.

I would also like to report that I have broken two Vitality units, purchased from American Diabetes, and finally took one apart this morning.  The pump piston attachment to the lever broke at the pin point.  A call to Augusta indicates one cannot get internal parts for the vacuum unit, so I will try to repair them with square brass tubing from a hobby shop. 

It may be a good idea to purchase the lifetime warranty for $99 when purchasing my next new unit.

alphapd: That's disappointing news about the durability of the Augusta Vitality pump.  Did both your pumps break in the same way?  I guess so or you could have swapped parts.  Augusta puts a warning on the pump not to grip the handle when clasping the pump to the tube.  That warning is for anti-mechanical users, not you.  If straight pumping can break the plastic at a pin point there is not enough "beef" there.  Augusta's designers didn't do their FEA. Let's hope they modify the mold soon.

Can you advise on how to operate the Vitality pump to avoid your bad experiences?
