I'm very early stages, the curve goes to the right about 10-20 degrees, maybe slightly down too.

This is RIGHT underneath the glans, like super close.

I'm wondering if I can do manual traction here along with 5mg cialis? Anyone had similar success?

(I'm also suffering with Erectile Dysfunction since this started and some shorter length)

My plaque is fairly close to the glans also, and I am giving Restorex a try. I've just started yesterday, in fact. For me, the thing that makes me hopeful it could possibly work is that the counter bending, when applied, still seems to be addressing the area where my curve is. If the counter bending were not visually addressing a part of my penis where I had curvature, I would personally be less sure about its possible efficacy.

FWIW, I am almost trying VED as well, so mine won't be a very controlled study. With both, I have been taking it very, very slow and careful, per the advice of many others on the board, and "easing" in to prevent overdoing any of the treatment efforts I am making.

Lots and lots of time will tell, I suppose.

Am also on 2.5mg Cialis nightly.

My bend is within 25mm of the corona or rim of my knob.
RestoreX is suitable for me and it's successful so far in reducing my bend.
The most important factor in using RestoreX is to apply the full 110degree counterbend (fully engaged) in my opinion.Also just an observation is you will possibly notice toward the end of the 30 minutes of traction your penis will experience some  slight slippage from the clamp - I DO NOT readjust or reset just continue till your 30 minutes or however long you wish has expired or your penis slipps completely out of the clamp.
Good luck and don't become disappointed or dismayed if there is no immediate results.
I'm 9 months into traction and getting slow but sure success 😊👍

Thanks, Jamesblue. As someone just getting started with RestoreX in a similar situation to you, this is a very helpful and motivating response!

Hi JamesBlue, what was the initial angle of your bend prior to using the Rx and what is it now please?

My Peyronies Specialist measured my bend at 35 deg atmy first consultation - this was 3 months after waking one morning with a painful erection and discovering a frightening bend in my penis.
In the following 3 months I commenced dilligently following traction with RestoreX, 5 mg of Cialis and 3 mgs L- Citrulline and having two  ultrasound appointments at different locations and companies at three months spacing.
Upon my return visit to Specialist I was informed that my bend had decreased 5degrees but my fibrosis had become recognised at the second ultrasound appointment.
The Specialist was very happy with my progress in following the regime prescribed and remarked that a reduction of bend so early was encouraging.
 I am to revisit in another month for a six month evaluation of my progress, a renewal of six months script for Cialis and another probable  appointment at the ultrasound .

Thanks for the info. Pleased to hear that you are making good progress.

I have been using the Rx  since March, putting in a lot of time and uaing the full 110 degrees. My bend is close to the glans but no change yet.

 From what I have read here, the impression I get is that the lower the bend, the more success one is likely to have. I don't know if smaller reductions  make more of a difference or whether a severe bend is just too far gone to have any luck with.

I Guess I should be careful going overboard, and take it slower.. I feel like it actually looks a little worse flacid currently.. FML

Looks like I made dent worse... or because its so early stages its just naturally getting worse

thats good to know.. i heard somacorrect / ved pumps help girth more... my curve isnt actually too bad.. i could live with it / have sex etc so isnt the worse thing in the world.. i can only afford one device right now and i got the somacorrect but can return it for something else..

considering just taking cialis, ved pump and some manual traction (this is exactly what my urologist said, after ved pump bend the penis tip in the opposite direction of bend)
