4 years in. Now this... explicit photos
« on: October 13, 2021, 01:09:09 PM »

So its been about 4 years in on my peyronies.  Started with erection pain which led to a dorsal upcurve. (pic1)  After 3 xiaflex injection, the curve was more manageable. and I was at peace with the disease and my penis. (Pic2)  Last year, I noticed an indentation on the rear left of my penis, next thing (pic3) i'm hour glassed and now an inch shy.  The lightening struck twice on me!  The hourglass is not that big of a deal but I want my missing inch back before it all happened!  Currently I'm at a solid 5.  I used to be 6, it makes a difference!  Any advice for the hourglass?

How about you guys? Ever have to go through a 2nd round?

Was that hourglassing gradual? Or did it just happen all of a sudden? The 2nd photo looks like great results compared to the first. I’m pretty sure xiaflex does not do much for hkurglassing.

We’re you pretty active sexually after the 2nd picture?

the 2nd round seemed to com on pretty quick.  No pain at all.  Yes i was sexually active, also (and still do) masturbate several times a week.  Not so much sex since losing the inch.  Pretty self conscious.

How quickly did this occur? Do you notice any bumps/ridges/indents along the side of your penile shaft where the hourglassing occurs? How much girth did you lose at the site of the hourglassing? Length should not have been affected, but girth significantly. Did you measure?

as to the girth at the base, i was 5 around before now at the base im about 4.5 but at the widest part i'm a bit over 5, so a bit thicker up top and thinner at the base.  I did see an indent at the beginning. no bumps. its gone now. see pic below. 

A note on pics.  Guys, we're adults.  Get over your shyness on the pics, as they say it tells a thousand words.  I've probably taken a hundred pics by now to chart my progress or lack thereof.

The hourglassing doesn’t seem noticeable in that pic. And I know you are self conscious losing an inch. But I been 5 inches my whole life and looks like I’m slowly losing some length too.

No the dent started it then the hourglass followed.  Hey 'im not knocking 5. that's actually average. like everyone else here, was just used to more.  I think they key is to just accept and not obsess.  Tell me about what's going on with yours.

Here is my evolution. The first picture was a year ago, the second and the third were taken a week ago. In one year I got more narrowing

The Doctor told me that Xiaflex won't do anything for me

Hey bud luck. Is your issues more the erectile dysfunction? Or the narrowing and dents? Because to the untrained eye it looks pretty good. Does your gf notice or say it feels different?

No problems getting hard.  It actually gained a half inch on girth but lost a bit on girth towards the base.  She likes the thicker part lol.

She said that doesn't notice the difference, but I do. I just losted penis volume, it creates unestability in the penis when is getting hard, once is erected  it stabilize, I don't have the hinge effect when is erected. For the last two weeks my nocturnal erections are weak or non-existent, maybe is due to hormones? Stress? . My erections overall are worse for the last two weeks.

First of all - thanks for sharing the pics.  I need to get some up here. It just seems like they help us to know we're not alone when you see evidence of other guys who look very similar.

Second - Yeah, I'm on my second injury.  First one was a pretty severe bend to the left. Practically a 60 degree curve.  I had it down to below 25 degrees, to the point where Dr. Trost said in a video consultation that Xiaflex wouldn't be an option but he'd help me get a RestoreX if I wanted.  Decided to keep manual traction and my supplements.  Then about 3 months ago I noticed a new plaque on the right side, actually pretty high up where cock meets pubic bone.  And am now twisted to the right. Not a new bend per sé, but a definite twist.  When I'm erect you can see the whole glans twisted to the right and my urethral opening ("piss slit") no longer up and down, but now diagonal.  Hate it.

And I totally get what you say about lost length but increased girth. Seems like the law of conservation of matter would mean that if you lose an inch in length that same penile mass/volume now has to exist in a shorter tube, so the tube gets wider. At least that's what makes sense in my mind.

Here is something else since the hourglass set in.  My penis is weaker on the left where it is more pronounced.  I can easily bend it when hard to the left but not to the right.  I started sleeping commando because a night erection hurt getting bent the wrong way.

Yeah, I've noticed that there's a difference between the "hinge defect" and the "hourglassing." With my hinge it felt like a literal hinge that my shaft would bend to the left easily. Made me scared for penetration, like it was so unstable it would buckle and / or "break" again at any minute.  The hourglassing seemed like more of a visual defect - not fun to look at, but didn't seem to cause much instability.

Sorry to hear this.. I saw your earlier feed and felt so optimistic about your result w/ Xiaflex.  I have some narrowing too and that’s so frustrating with the lack of things to fix it. Are you going to livr with it or try surgery? A little viagra helps me a little on the narrowed area for stiffness

Scottslcut: Were you on on, or start, any treatments when the dent and subsequent hourglassing occurred?

Thanks,

I'm not on any program but wide open to suggestions.  I saw where castor oil could help and began applying it.  Really didn't do anything.
