Is traction a realistic option for me?
« on: July 30, 2022, 01:13:16 AM »

I have been slacking on the manual traction, and I’m now at a 90 degree bend (was at 60 before). Sex is out of the question. Oral is fine. I’m dating a woman who is fine just trading oral for oral, so it could be worse. I want to start taking this more seriously. I’ve been in denial for too long. I was hoping it would get better on its own, since I still get rock hard erections (just smaller and crooked). I hadn’t seen my girl in a while and we both noticed the bend was more severe. The weird thing is that it sometimes only bends upward, while other times it will bend all the way to the right. I refuse to do surgery. If I have to give up sex, so be it. I just want to know if spending money on restoreX is going to make any significant improvement. I was diagnosed in early 2020. Thanks.

I am assuming that you have read the survival guide -->https://www.peyroniesforum.net/index.php/topic,3180.msg44057.html#msg44057 . One thing you need to remember is that this is not a race but a marathon. I think if you do nothing that yes things can get worse. Traction does help but it is not something that will magically happen quickly. You must take time and consistency and daily treatments so to speak. I have been doing traction and VED for almost 2 years now. I have almost regained all of my lost size and my curvature is down from about 45 degrees to about 20. I do daily traction and VED 5 days a week. You have to have a plan and work it.

I appreciate the advice. Thank you! I would be happy even with losing half of the curvature. At least sex would be do-able. I’ll order some equipment and create a gameplan. Thanks again!

I think it is worth a try. It seems to work for many. Personally, unfortunately, I have not yet had any success (my diary). My curvature has worsened despite stretching therapy. But maybe less than without it ...

Stick to the traction regime and do it diligently exactly as indicated in the instructions. (RestoreX)
Personally, I am starting to see results after 9 months  of use.
My Peyronies Specialist noticed improvement after 6 months but I was reluctant to get my hopes up too early.
If you go with RestoreX use the pads as they make it easy and painless after you master the technique of clamping.
Don't listen to others that fall by the wayside due to lack of application or desire for overnight success.
Good luck
