My ESWT Experience
« on: September 03, 2021, 03:35:28 AM »

I had 4 very expensive sessions back in May; it helped with pain, but not curve.

I changed hospitals and doctor recently. The new one offered 6 sessions of ESWT for free (just pay fee for seeing doctor) as he said both parties could benefit (they record results and use me as guinea pig). I agreed as I understand how it bascially works and have done it before. I get the impression from the doctor not many males here (Taiwan) go to see the doctor about Peyronies Disease.

Today I had my first session. It hurt more than last time. Two reasons perhaps: more plaque and last time the doctor attacked the plaque from underneath, whilst this time the doctor did from on top if you see what I mean. He also did i-t above the penis where the pubic hair is and that also hurt. He said the machine can detect inflammation (from infection) and this could be a reason for peyronies as it could travel down there. I found this fascinating and plausible. So next week (I have a session every Fri), I will share this with the doctor armed with an image of the male anatomy down there and ask him the possibilities for the pain there. He is a good doctor (head of dep.) and will hopefully want to investigate further.

In other news, my RestoreX device arrives next week, so there's that to look forward to.

I will update after every session and share my findings.

Awesome that you are getting it for free! I don't know if it will improve things or not.  There is little knowledge on this kind of treatment.  If you are getting worse though I would give this a second thought on more treatments.

Has the modify button disappeared because I can't find it so had to reply here.

Session #2
Less pain than the first time, the guy doing the ESWT said this was a good sign. He also mentioned the plaque felt softer and looser than the first time. I saw the doctor right before the session and he said due to nature and location of plaque, he has got me an MRI scan for Monday (luckily someone cancelled). He is concerned it may be a tumor so an MRI scan provides more information than the previous sonogram I had half a year ago at another hospital.
