Great reduction in curvature in two months
« on: April 17, 2021, 07:38:58 AM »

Hi all

decided to make a post on here hoping it will help people in a similar situation. if it wasn't thanks to the information i found on this forum i most certainly wouldn't gotten to where I am now!!

I first noticed my glans being curved by about 25-30 degrees to the right during an erection in February 2021 and noticed a plaque/scar tissue at the base of the glans with a small indentation. After finding this forum i self diagnosed it being Peyronies (sadly couldn't afford a specialist here in the UK and was put on a 2 month waiting list to see a urologist).

I started straight away with 6-8h traction penimaster pro, 300 mg COQ10, 2g Acetyl Carnitine, 2.5 mg cialis daily, and a few minutes heat before traction with warm water. I also went on a keto diet for 1 month, but sadly i was shedding too much weight (i'm already quite skinny) and I generally eat a lot of fruit so wasn't feeling great with a lack of nutrients, so returned to a normal diet but tried to cut unhealthy carbs as much as i could and switch to healthier alternatives (grains, quinoa etc). Sadly my phone was broken, so couldn't take a picture up to about 215 hours of traction. i then got a new one and measured a 15 degree angle using the angle tool in the free ImageJ software.

I am now at around 370 hours of traction and my angle is around 5 degrees. some days it looks better than others and sometimes after traction it looks completely straight and it goes back to being curved in the morning, but even by looking at the photos without measuring, there has been a huge improvement in the last month. I never suffered from excessive pain, but have noticed some sharp pains when i drink too much alcohol (or the next morning). these usually don't last more than a few seconds/minutes. I had stopped masturbating (except once or twice a week) as my penis would feel very red and inflamed afterwards, but now things are starting to feel way more normal (don't know if its just natural progression of disease or the combination of treatments).

I also started using the hirudoid cream (there is a thread on this with a lot of positive posts). not sure if its affected my scar tissue size, but my penis feels less inflamed than a few months ago. i have almost gone back at masturbating once a day without any issues.

note on traction: Before using the PMP, i did a few hours of manual gentle. traction daily for a week following NeoVs youtube channel tips. i think this helped condition my penis for the device and reduce the chance of hurting myself. Also the lubricant that comes with the PMP is horrible, castor oil serves the same purpose, its cheaper and is actually good for the skin!

Note on cialis: there are some reports on this forum and the tinnitus forums that it can cause hearing problems. I cannot say for sure if it was cialis's fault (i work with music so was suffering from some tinnitus before hand) but after two months of taking it daily my tinnitus got worse exponentially. I since quit cialis and am looking to take some natural supplements (curcumin etc). it's worth knowing if you have pre-existing hearing problems


i hope this helps people and gives them some hope. I was quite desperate and depressed when I first started seeing the symptoms, and definitely was spending too much time on here, but now i realise how having a positive mindset is actually more important to deal with peyronies and heal your penis. its important to have some patience as well!

happy to answer any questions if needed!

Did the curve start because you had trauma? How is your erection quality? Do you feel like the disease is progressing or has it stopped?

i had sex a month before but was nothing crazy, so possibly something happened

my erectionquality has always been fine but has improved since i started with traction. I think the curvature has reduced massively, but the scar still feels very present. so not sure if the situation could worsen, but am continuing with my regime until i see some major changes in plaque size

I have a question about traction:
Are you still in the acute phase when you started using it? Because i am, with pain, and for me it feels just not right to use it because its like my penis is very sensitive to any  touch. I will try it however soon.
Did you consider VED too? What made you choose traction?

and i started traction because i saw many people with a similar condition on this forum that managed to solve their issues using the penimaster pro so decided to give it a go!

I am not sure about how to continue traction! the scar is still quite present (sometimes it even feels bigger than others) so i assume i am very much in the active phase. i am currently using the PMP belt as my crotch was getting irritated, and improvements have been insane over a few days (with less hours). i will probably just get back to the rod system and do a few hours each evening or something like that to keep the scar tissue stretched every day

maybe i sang victory too soon, found another plaque opposite the first one a few days ago. no new curvature yet and not entirely sure if the plaque was there already and i never checked  :-\

will continue with 40 hours of traction a week and see how it goes

It was the same for me once. i thought my penis would straighten, but after a few months i found out that instead a new plaque had formed on the opposite side and the penis had been "straightened". this also resulted in more upward curvature and more indentations. Unfortunately, the degree of curvature alone is not a good parameter for the success of an opinion according to :-(

pauli,

the same happened to me.
I thought traction was doing good for me, but the truth was new plaques were formed on the opposite side. This straightened a bit my penis, but at the same time I lost circumference and my axial rigidity got worse.
My curvature was really bad (around 80º to the right), but after traction my penis got wrecked. More straight, but wrecked.

If people want to do traction, I recommend starting VERY slowly. In my opinion, VED is a much better and much much safer treatment.

VED, guys. Do it instead of traction.

No study has ever showed better results with VED compared to PTT.

i can confirm that traction definitely works, my very first scar has lost all its hardness and is breaking up into smaller pieces, the dent on that side is gradually filling out as well. i dont think that scar contributes to curvature much as its regaining elasticity and slowly dissolving.

i think the problem with traction is that your penis might be more vulnerable to harm whilst you are doing traction. i think i got myself injured by accidentally bending it whilst drying myself out of the shower. and further traction might have exacerbated the hit.

i am still continuing traction however, and that scar so far hasnt turned into a fibrosis (happened 1+ months ago) an d doesnt seem to have deformed my penis at all. light tension over long hours is the key (as opposed to high tension). i think eventually the penis becomes stretched promoting healthier blood flow as well. NeoV seems to say the same in his youtube channel

the VED is useful afterwards to restore blood flow in the penis after long traction sessions

Looks like I might have to give PMP a try.... too many people vouching for light traction but for longer duration in excess of 6 hours a day seeing positive results.

In my case, sessions between 4-8 hours were effective. Continuity is the key.

Depends on your daily routine. Sometimes I can wear the device one half of a day and sometimes only at the evening. Better wearing the device only a few hours (1-2 hours) than not wearing the device.
If you want a straight penis, in my case, I had to sacrifice this time and it works.

Nolte, do you re-adjust tension/stretching length depending on your position? I mean, do you use same stretch length while seated as while layed down?

At the beginning my penis is not as elastic as after ~30mins, that's why I use the screws to set the tension again to ~600-700g.
