Quote from: JamieKer56 on July 18, 2022, 04:53:46 AM I eventually (!) got referred to a urology consultant, who I saw in April 2021.

Quote from: JamieKer56 on July 18, 2022, 04:53:46 AMI'm trying to ascertain whether living with a 45 degree curve is better than surgery, and maybe making a concerted effort to reduce the curve using a device that might be less time consuming.

Quote from: JamieKer56 on July 19, 2022, 07:26:11 AMHow come you stopped using the VED?
Quote from: JamieKer56 on July 19, 2022, 07:26:11 AMHow did you buy Rx considering the manufacture does supply direct to the UK?
Quote from: JamieKer56 on July 19, 2022, 07:26:11 AMHow long will you continue to use Rx considering no tangible results so far?
Quote from: JamieKer56 on July 19, 2022, 07:26:11 AMDo you take any additional medications, supplements etc? My consultant just advised me to use a VED. It seems consultants in the US often suggest other things could be tried (medication, supplements etc)
Quote from: MrDoh on July 19, 2022, 05:39:00 PMI'm not an expert or a urologist, just a hopeful grasshopper, but I think that I'd give the RestoreX a shot before getting into risky surgery. I'm in the midst of using it, and am satisfied with how things are progressing. Light at the end of the tunnel sort of thing *smile*. I have a curve to the left and a kink upwards. Neither is very bad, but are slowly improving with the use of the RestoreX. I'm focusing on the kink upwards, that's the one that needs more treatment. It is expensive, and may be hard for you to get in the UK, I don't know, but that's what I would try first...lowest impact on you, and you can most likely manage two 30 minute sessions a day. If the RestoreX helps you, there you go...but as had been said, it's a process and those of us with less patience just have to be philosophical about it. Before I started, my thinking was doing one session in the morning and one just before I went to bed. Turns out I do one after my morning walk, and one before dinner (4 or 5PM). The sessions only need to be 30 minutes apart, which makes things quite flexible, timing-wise. I am retired, though, and the kids have left home, which leaves me with a lot of flexibility.Anyways, like everyone else I looked at a lot of things, Xiaflex shots, Phoenix Pro, RestoreX, surgery, pumping, etc. Picked RestoreX as the lowest impact, least risky starting point. And, like I said, happy that I did.
