Restorex, does it work?
« on: August 22, 2020, 02:13:06 PM »

Hi,

I'm currently waiting on a Restorex device that I ordered.
I wanted to know how many people here have had succes with restorex and what progress has been made.

Restorex is more traction in less hours instead of less traction for many hours so I'm curious if that works

Thanks

I have been using Restorex for 5 weeks. I have noticed fuller erections, slightly bigger length and girth. There appears to be a small reduction in curvature. Flaccid I am slightly less curved.

Whether it works better than the other devices may depend upon “counter bending” and whether your case is helped by it or not. That said, traction works so, be careful and expect good things!

Thanks to both of you!
I will be very careful since I think I have injured myself again by doing hand traction while semi-erect.

Restorex may work with less wear time than also devices also because of the higher tension than other devices.

I tried Restorex many months ago. The stretch is strong. I was managing when there was heating in the house, but one day it was cold and the standard stretch injured me. It took many months for my penis to recover.

I am done with stretching (bar manual), especially with something that stretches hard like the restorex. Something always seems to happen eventually with stretching devices which ruins all your good work and the time you put in.

I spent over €400 getting the Restorex to Europe and it was not worth it for me, personally.

If anybody in Europe is interested in buying my Restorex pm me, it will save you a lot of time and money over trying to get one from the States.

Yeah, restoreX has not been kind to my junk either, and is why I take it very slowly and easy every session.   I am not worried about burying the white lines just yet.  I just get the base stretch and base strength.

this must be the most stupid crap ever said on this forum. I assume clinical data does not mean anything to you? do you know that modeling in xiaflex treatment is very comparable to counter bending with restorex?

jelqing gave me peyronie, posthitis / phimosis / lymphatic edema and pelvic floor problems, short term manual traction, absolutely improves all my symptoms, but only for 7-10 days and then it hardens again.
My penis no longer has elasticity, I think that the traction impaired the elasticity, although there is a time when the circulation increases and I regain elasticity.
My question is whether the traction makes the pelvic floor lose elasticity and worsen the situation (although it improves in the short term). or you have to pull for long periods, and do gymnastics.

RestoreX didn't help in my case, and I'm not sure whether the clinical study supporting it is fully independent from the company that makes it (please do your own research). I heard some doctors' opinions that the indicated wear time is too sort to activate scar remodeling through mechanotransduction.

That said, it's certainly less taxing on your time and lifestyle and may be worth a shot if you got the patience. It didn't cause me any permanent problems. Just go slow and follow what the manual says.

Hi all,

Just a bit curious as to how people are experiencing Restorex in terms of comfort. After struggling with clamping enough to hold my penis in place I am now managing the 10 min sessions fine. However, the blood flow to the head is quite restricted, wrapped in tape or not, yet that seems to be the only way I can get it to remain in place.

Is anyone else experiencing the same issues? How are you dealing with it? Do you think it is fine to divide a 30 min session into like three separate ones without losing any effect? I am wondering whether I will ever be able to go through anything longer than 10 min.

I'm having the exact same issues with restorex.   The clamping mechanism is just not keeping me locked in unless you put major pressure on it, tape or no tape.  I basically have to hold it down to keep it from slipping out most of the time.  I have not went over 10 minutes per session due to this baby sitting yet.  VED is so much easier and better so far.

I had high hopes for RestoreX, I used it exactly as described in their guide for a year and besides some increase in flaccid length, no other improvements. It actually makes my erections worse after I use it and it takes around 3 days after not using it for my erections to start coming back and a further 3 or so days for erections to be back to normal so I was eventually using it once a week for 10 mins only. If I used it longer than 10 mins, I think it does more damage to my penis as the clamp cuts off the blood supply. The clamp is really harsh.

Not sure if I should try it again as every time I have, it hasn't worked. I envy the people who get good results from it.

I'm losing hope with the traction, I had gotten improvements, but the first time I manually stretched from the glans, I did it a little hard and I felt a burning, my glans today has a hardness and my orgasm feels worse.
It's a shame because short-term manual traction really took away all the symptoms of peyronie and pelvic floor, but it can hurt.
I'm confused, I feel like it no longer depends on me

I really do wonder whether the restorex studies are actually accurate. Think about how crazy it is that in 2020 there is basically no reliable treatment, nobody give a [email protected]< ass about this disease. You couldn't even prevent it, if you got peyronies in 2023 and you knew it today there is nothing you could do to prevent it. And the only drug that has been shown to do anything at all has been pulled out of every market in the world except the USA where it's in humanely(genuinely in humanely) expensive. This is down right pathetic. I

Don't know what you are talking about Peter, traction and VED work insanely good. Start doing traction and VED or just continue to bitch around in this forum, your choice. Why so many just complain and don't actually do anything about it? Are you just waiting for someone to give you a magic pill that cures everything without actually doing anything yourself?

The reason I personally am not wearing a device is because I'm afraid of making matter worse. Otherwise if I knew I'd be 100% safe I'd do it, 6 hours a day I don't care

I have used the Restorex for over a year...closer to 18 months. At first, I noticed some improvement in my flaccid length...about a half inch...and I was excited the possibility of this being the magical cure. However, there has been no improvement to my length or curvature (about 35-38 degrees) since that first month or so. Nevertheless, I persisted all this time. I haven't been faithful every single day, but I'd say 6 out of 7 days on average...and putting in either 30 minutes or any hour each time (like the directions say to do). I've also been taking pentox daily and a few supplements for 5 years.

At this point, I am a little concerned about my erection quality. It does seem to be taking longer and longer to recover from the device. I might just put it in storage and go on to the next possible non-surgical cure. I guess I'm lucky because I can still get erections (I'm 64 years old), but the quality is not great...and the loss of length and curvature will always be a nuisance. My plaques are calcified at this point, which makes any non-surgical plan of attack very difficult.

I'm sure the device will benefit some guys. I wouldn't say to never try it. But, for me personally, it hasn't.

I have been using RESTOREX faithfully for about 5 months.  I would say I have noticed some improvement in the curve.  Nothing huge or earth shattering yet. I think it it a very gradual process.  Slow and steady.  And I certainly think it helps with length over time.

I'm at  about 4 months. I haven't missed any sessions using restorex. Sometimes it seems like the curve is improved more than other times but it could be the quality of erect I have at that moment. More erect seems to bring out more curve. That said I believe I see a very minor improvement...probably less than 10 degrees and probably more like 5. Although I began treatment early in the process so had I not started my curve might be much worse. I'm going to keep at it a bit longer as I already have 4 months invested and the first couple of weeks was getting acclimated to the device.

My pennies worth. Am in week 3 of the Restorex regime. Not missed a session. Definitely see penis hanging well. No change to curvature. There maybe an increase in lumps. Not good. Erections are good, but I never really had a problem getting hard.

Clamping can be difficult. Have put a small sponge in there. Roughly 2 inch by 2 inch by 1 inch square. Made by cutting a washup up sponge in half. Peeled off the course bit. Gives good traction. Holds penis in for the full 30 mins session.

On a negative note: the retractiing bend feature. Doesn't fit behind penis bend. No counter end to my bend. Meaning I'm not getting the full benefit of Restorex's bigges selling point.  It's annoying me.

If this doesn't work by December. Seriously considering having surgery.

Although, there's a guy in here doing VED. Posted in diary form. He's very funny, but has good results. Might give VED a try. Doing it gently. But he also had no joy getting rid of the plaques yet.

For comfort and to avoid slipping I use the thin rubber mats/pads that are intended for dishes/glasses in the kitchen cabinet and come in a roll. I cut two small squares off that and use one for the top part of clamp and one for bottom.

Ok... Time to get serious. Am a wee bit disappointed with Restorex. Mainly because while waiting for delivery I bought a cheap all day stretcher. It took 1 month for Restorex to arrive. In the time being. The cheap stretcher managed to reduce the curvature from 30 degrees to 20 degrees. Awesome!

Restorex arrives. I figure after all the hype surrounding Restorex. I should give it a go. It manages only to give me an injury. Returns the curvature back to 30 degrees. After a few weeks I give it another go. This time taking it slow. 3 weeks in. No major changes to my condition.

Guess what? Tomorrow I'm starting back in the cheap traction device. You can wear it all day. Gives good traction. Can feel the lumps being stretched. As I'm writing this.

Friggin overated Restorex. Let's face it guys. If it was so great. Where are all the fantastic reviews on this thread? 

Am gonna keep score. So far Restorex scores 4 positive reviews and 7 negative reviews. That evens out as -3 points  for Restorex. Whoopi!

Oh.. and in case you were wondering. I bought if from a guy who could not use it because his glans were slightly larger then average. The clamp would not close/fit. For me the counter bend on restorex does not line up to the bend in my penis. It's clearly not a perfect traction device.

My other problem with Restorex is there has in been 1 study done on Restorex. Carried out by the inventors. In that study, if I remember rightly, and feel free to correct me on this. Only 27 men took part. That is a rubbish sample. You cannot conclude a comprehensive study with a sample of just 27 men?

At least 300 guys should take part. For it to be taken seriously. Also..  there should be more.then 1 study...

Now look. Am happy to be corrected, because I'm only going by memory. But I have looked around, and cannot find any other study on Restorex. Can someone enlighten us all on this point?

Edited: 26/09/2020.  Originally I wrote 27 men. The actual number taking part in the study is 201. That is a lot more respectable, but that is the sole study? No others? Also... It doesn't warrant all the hype. IMHO

As far as the restorex study size, I believe they carrier out the study early and didn't have enough volunteers at the time. Then, they collected another group to add with those but kept the data separate. That's how I recall but could be wrong. I've always thought those with the highest degree curve might have experienced the greater correction angle and that might have "skewed" the results some for those with less angle. Taking 10 degrees off 20 is something good, but 20 degrees or 90 is still good but not like 10 off 20.

Let me try this again without the typos... lol!!

Well guys got to put my 2 cents in.  I have been using the restorix for approximately one month and I will be honest with you. So far I have experienced some positive benefits.I will definitely admit it is not exactly a comfortable device. I have experienced some interesting sensations and at first it was difficult clamping the head of my penis in but I quickly got the hang of it. I wrap it with the soft gauze. 1-2 full wrap around my penis and then I use some coban tape. I wrap it maybe one or two times around my head and then clamp it in. I find that if I wrap it rather tightly but not too tight that it really won't slip for even the entire 30 minutes of use.sometimes around the 15-minute mark it may slip out but it's more often or not it does not.  I have a mild case of peyronie's. I have noticed a small amount of change in the bend so far. I've also noticed a small amount change in the length but up until  reading this particular thread, I was super optimistic. Now I'm cautiously optimistic. I CAN say that I have definitely noticed an  increase in erectile quality. Definitely plumper when flaccid and it seems like when I'm hard it seems more veinier, plumper and a bit longer. DEFINATE improvement overall. Before starting to use the restorex I would sometimes erectile dysfunction. I have not experienced that since pretty much since I started using it.  Hopefully it's not just coincidence but I'm "SOMEWHAT" confident that it isn't.

Am gonna keep score. So far Restorex scores 4 positive reviews and 7 negative reviews. That evens out as -3 points  for Restorex. Whoopi!

Add me to the negative group, I think. I ordered a restoreX a while ago,at great expense, and I cant imagine using this device for an hour a day. I've so far tried to use it (warming up with a rice sock first) for the proscribed 8 minutes for first time use and it seems too powerful to be safe to me. Didn't get anywhere near burying the white lines! And the clamp left a horrible rash on the glans. That clamp is nasty. Thinking of trying a different device, as i feel the thing might just do more damage. My bend is too close to the body to get much out of the counter bending as well. Scared to use it again!

Anxioid I do agree the clamp is the weakest part of the device, followed by the issue you describe with bends toward the base (although it DOES still work for this to a degree). However, I really like the device.

I am about to upload my review and impressions of the device.

I think the combination of the clamp and the high tension is a problem. Though I  don't have any experience of any other devices, it sounds like there are others much more comfortable than restoreX. Not sure if this is due to lower tension or just better glans attachments, or both. It just feels wrong to me, like I could cause damage with it. Very much unlike the gentle manual traction I've been doing (cheers btw) where I can feel when I'm pulling too hard. I might just have a sensitive glans I suppose, it's always been prone to redness.
Anyway I'd reckon "how likely is this device to cause more damage" should probably be a pretty big part of the traction choice equation.

Several post here have asked about results of using the RestoreX device.  This was my experience.

Timeline:

12/2019 - (my first indication of a problem)

Noticed a stretching or pulling sensation on my penis when erect
No known injury to my penis

01/2020 - (my first Visual indication of a problem and confirmation by a Urologist - RestoreX treatment begins)
Early January 2020 - Noticed upward curvature starting with an indentation mid-shaft
Mid January 2020 - Diagnosed with Peyronie's by an Urologist
Late January 2020 - Started using the Restorex (also started Cialis)
Curvature at 40 degrees prior to initiating RestoreX treatment

02/2020 - (four weeks of using RestoreX)
1 cm increase in length of penis
Curvature the same or maybe worse
Dorsal plaque measured at 2.2 cm

03/2020 - (eight weeks of RestoreX treatments)
Penis length unchanged
Curvature increased to 55 degrees
Plaque increased to 3 cm

04/2020 - (twelve weeks of RestoreX treatments)
Penis length unchanged
Curvature increased to 60 degrees
Plaque diameter the same but felt thicker

This completed the recommended initial use of the Restorex.  I continued to apply it daily as directed (2 x 30 min) for a total of six months.

08/2020 - (Final Results)
Penis length 0.5 cm longer than pre-treatment in January 2020
Curvature increased to 65 degrees
Plaque diameter much larger and oval shaped going down both sides of my penis

Final Thoughts on My RestoreX Experience

It did not work in my situation

Pros:  My curvature may have been much worse if I went completely untreated (no traction)

Cons:  My biggest concern was that if "micro trauma" caused the original issue, could the RestoreX be repeating this type of trauma.  Specifically, if the injury was still healing, did the extreme traction cause a secondary injury that also needed to heal.  That might explain the continued increase in both curvature and plaque size.

I mentioned this secondary injury question to my urologist but he did not have an opinion.
The clinical trial that I reference when choosing the RestoreX involved men with Peyronie's for an average of 34 months before treatment.  (https://www.auajournals.org/doi/10.1016/j.juro.2018.03.103)

I started traction treatment only one month after noticing symptoms while the disease was in the early active stage.  This might explain the negative outcome.

I hope this is useful and sorry if I post it to several related RestoreX questions.

Note: After a month of no treatment I am switching to the Penimaster Pro (start 10/2020).  If anyone is interested in the difference between the two or results after a month or two of using the PMP let me know.  Thanks and good luck in your recovery!

I watched the video online. Unfortunately this device will not work for me. At the end of the video he said it's only for those with foreskin. What's the next best option in your opinion? I'm ready to try something else as I've been using restorex.

Yes please update on pmp. I just looked at pmp and it looks like a science kit. I'm wondering how cumbersome it is and the ability to wear for extended periods of time. Has anyone here had success with it?

I've found this thread very interesting,  especially since I've been considering buying Restorex. But ordering it from the US at around $499 seemed steep, and I already have a PeniMaster and SomaCorrect VED. I've only been using both for 3 months or so, and I am still quite new to the treatment options, so please let me know if I'm talking out my a hole.
My thoughts are this: The PeniMaster comes with the traction rods, but also a strap option, which in theory can be pulled in any direction. If you have a dorsal upward curvature like I do, couldn't the strap be attached to the suction cup and pulled between the legs from the front and pulled behind you, possibly attached to your back on a belt. It would give you a stretch but also a gentle counter curve. I can appreciate this would be curving the entire penis, not just the affected area. Just not sure if this would work?
I hope I've explained myself correctly.  I might even give it a go over the weekend to see if its possible.
