VED protocol prior to implant
« on: July 05, 2019, 11:03:42 PM »

Sorry if this the wrong place for this, but I read through the few threads in the VED area with no results.  In prep for my eventual implant, I plan to use a VED and restoreX (alternate days, unless doc says otherwise) for a couple months to hopefully regain some lost length. The restoreX I ordered won't be here until next week, but want to be sure I'm using the VED right in the mean time.  I know to go slow, but what should the VED protocol look like?  Pump up for X minutes, release and then repeat X times?  I don't think what I've been doing is right (2 minutes pumped, 30 seconds released, repeat 3 times).

Great question.  I know of lots of opinions but NO studies that suggest one pump time with so many repetitions gets better results than another inflation time with another number of repetitions.  I think what you are doing is good if you do it at least a couple of times a day.  I personally would also pump up one time right before traction and one right after traction because traction compresses the blood and oxygen from the penis.

Hey chiefly! Check this out:

Preparing for implant: VED 30-60 days preop-daily - Peyronies Society Forums

Thanks.  I'd seen this, but unless I'm missing it, they don't say specifically what the protocol is; pump and leave it pressurized for 10 - 15 min or some sort of cycle of on or off.  Hawk's recommendation sounds logical to me, I'll give that a go unless doc advises otherwise.
