No wrap after first shot of Xiaflex?
« on: July 16, 2021, 01:54:31 PM »

had my first shot of Xiaflex yesterday.... went far better than i expected....it didnt feel good, but i built it up far worse in my mind.  I was drenched in sweat by the time my doc came in.  HOwever, when i was done, he didnt wrap my penis... just told me to get dressed and he'd see me monday for my 2nd shot.

Great doctor, but i was reading here on some pretty adverse issues if you removed the bandage early.  Should i be concerned i just came home ... bare?

I actually wrap myself, and you may want to if you notice you get any swelling.  Just buy some tape at the drug store - like an ACE bandage type material and wind it around to keep your swelling in check.  Also next time ask him why no wrap.  Maybe he has a reason... but it's really easy to do yourself, and I actually do better than my doc.  His wrapping always fell off in a matter of an hour or two.

You definitely want a stretchy, self-adhesive bandage like a 3M Coban wrap to minimize swelling. Don't use an ace bandage type thing that can't stretch to accommodate erections. Funny wrap too tight.

Very great points and shows the difference between run of the mill uro's and a dedicated master like Dr. Trost.

Right! It’s also important to note that Dr. Trost invented his own protocol for doing Xiaflex which maximizes results.

I think this video should be discussed with your urologist if he/she is not following several of his steps.

thanks everyone!  I have shot #2 today... after the first shot, there was no bruising, no swelling, no pain... wondering if today will be different. im going to ask why if he doesnt wrap.

last appointment, he said he might have to give me a shot to induce an erection today to check things out... really hoping i can avoid that... as few shots in my member as possible would be ideal.
