Worth it to use Restorex in the 1st click counterbend?
« on: July 19, 2021, 06:21:47 PM »

In early June I had to take a break from Restorex because just using it in the second position on counter bending caused me a lot of pain, crazy inflammation for a couple weeks, and a small lump tgat thankfully never turned into a new dent or curve. I’ve been able to use it 15 minutes straight and 15 minutes counter bend in the first position 2x daily but I’m worried that I’ll get months into this without any improvement because the counter bend isn’t that intense. Has anyone used it and saw results in the first click counter bend position or am I wasting my time? I emailed Restorex and they said they just don’t have the data on that right now and that most men can get to position 3 without pain.

If your curve is smooth all over like a gently curved banana then the first position and second are helpful. If however you have a an abrupt point of curvature at a focal point, then I believe most men saw improvements only after using 3 and 4 levels of counterbending according to Dr.Trost.

Not so much like a banana, it’s straight then a dent, then curves.

Then you need to counterbend to 3 and 4 positions for best results provided your curve is in the middle. If curve is near base, position 1 and 2 will be good. That being said, if because of pain you are unable to do full counterbending, my advice would be to do the best you can. This means straight and position 1. Once pain subsides and in chronic phase, you can start full counterbending.

I have been using Restorex for 4 months now and am seeing some improvement.  I have the upward  banana thing going and had lost a lot of length while erect. My flaccid penis looks the same as it always did.  My erectile dysfunction is pretty much resolved but I’m still not as straight while erect.  At this point, it’s sort of a “it just doesn’t look like it did when I was younger“ thing. 

It takes a lot of patience and dedication. The tissues in my penis have stretched considerably as a result of daily use.  You have to give it time. As the tissues stretch out like any other muscles in the body, you may be able to get it curved to the three or four position. It took me a while to get there, but I’m there now.  I still have to shorten the lengthening bars in order to get the full curve, but even then, I am shortening it less and less.

Yeah the counter bending is much harder for me too. I'm tempted to just switch to all straight traction. I can do the 2nd click but anymore is too much. When I do the 3rd click (90°) the tension is basically as high as the device can possibly do. Even at the shortest the device can be. and im not really small or anything just average size.
annoying that the study doesn't specify what level of counterbending was used.
