Surgery for plaque near the glans?
« on: October 23, 2018, 07:56:07 PM »

Does plaque very close to the glans make you a non-candidate for surgery? How about Dorsal?about dorsal,  I saw on a surgery video that they avoid the urethral ridge area and that is why I ask.

Penis injury in late 2017. A lump formed at injury site that caused no deformity, just pain and a palpable lump. Pain is improving through proper rest and use, diet, and mindfulness. I am always learning and looking to share things that have helped.

Hijacking an old post here.

Did someone find an answer to this question?
I'm still a long way from surgery, but my plaques are protuding into the glans, so this is interesting to me.

Never read on sites that it was an contra indication.

Have seen 4 doctors for surgery now.

1st said incision will do, didn't believe there is plaque under glans
2nd said it will be difficult but could be solved by combination of incision/excision and scratch technique.
3rd did not want to discuss surgery before pain is gone
4th said he would not do surgery, and below glans it would be impossible anyway.

Hey Blex,

That sounds like a tough decision, considering the range of opinions. Which doctors did you end up going. Unfortunately, I’m starting to develop pain and I’m a bit frustrated with my doctors and I want to be prepared as it is so hard to get appointments.

All the best!

I have not decided yet, as I have another appointment in November with a fifth one in Nuremberg.
So far most likely #2 in Kiel. #1 and #4 are obviously out.

Will post a big update after I have visited all five.
Can give you names via PM if interested.

Well, my plaque decided to move towards the glans. Fun never ends with Peyronies Disease ::)

[...] Will post a big update after I have visited all five. [...]
Since I'm in a similar situation I'm looking forward to that.

Did you have a Doppler ultrasound with any of the four or five doctors? I have a similar situation and my plaque is also near my urethra. Doctors say they can’t feel any plaque on me. It’s supremely frustrating.

Small update for now, will make a big progression post some time in the near future.
My situation has changed a bit, curvature is now at least 60° (yes the gift that keeps on giving).
Plaque seams so have moved away from the glans abit, but also has grown towards the base.

5th appointment was kind of a letdown, which may have been because of my high expectations.
The staff in Nuremberg was very kind, and the Dr. explained the surgery in great detail.
He recommended PPEG (Partial Plaque Excision and Grafting) with Tachosil and mentioned I could gain back a cm of length.
Plaque excision is partial only to correct the curvature, so location near glans doesnt matter that much.
Curvature would be mostly gone, maybe hourglass too, depending on the location of the plaque.

Summary:

#. Method; Material; Circumcision
1. PIG; SIS; partial
2. PPEG & Perito Scratch; decided during surgery; yes
3. PEG; Tachosil; no (from publication, wants to discuss when pain is gone)
4. Plication; none; optional (corrected, received letter from him saying surgery is possible)
5. PPEG; Tachosil; yes

All doctors agreed I could have surgery, but stressed active phase needs to be over.
Surgery indicated through wether sex is possible, not from curvature itself.
Location of plaque was noted by some to have influence on grafting material (Tachosil is glued, so more difficult towards glans, whereas SIS can be sewn in easier).
Other than that, the plague location does not seem to be a hinderance to surgery.

@tenfour
Yes all did doppler ultrasound and found plaques.

I hope I didnt forget anything.
For German readers, all appointments but the last are 100% covered by insurance, as are all kinds of surgery.

Thank's for the update. Why does it feel like a letdown? Sounds like a "good" outlook for me.

Well, Dr. H. is the one who made the most surgeries in Germany, so I expected much.
I was told pain and worsening needs to be gone for 6-9 months. This basically means I probably won't be able to do anything for at least another year.
Also he really did not want to discuss the methods, i.e. when asked about if circumcision is really needed, he said if I don't like it, I should go somewhere else.
As I said the problem was likely my expectation of some kind of miracle...

That does not sound good. Did you already try the minimal invasive approaches like traction or VED?

I also had my appointment with him and I'm also a bit disappointed. Mainly because he didn't take much time for me.
And maybe because there was no miracle for me either ;-) I'll write a little more about it in my diary if you're interested.

@geralt
No I didn't dare trying traction because of pain 24/7.
Too scared to hurt myself more...

@takit
Sounds like you had a similar experience...
Yes, please, reports are always appreciated.
