Restorex not for me.
« on: November 19, 2022, 02:47:19 PM »

Restorex just not working. Clamping issues. Glans slips out. Tried everything including the pads. I’m done with it. What other traction device works? I currently do VED. Urologist suggested restorex. There has got to be other choices that are effective.

Is your signature updated?

If so I do not see the point in even doing traction for a mild 10° curve.

Howdy: might you be willing to give RestoreX another try? This is my situation only and may not apply to you. I found that a way to get a secure clamp was to use the makeup pads as you are doing. Remove the clamp from the RestoreX, place yourself through the pelvic ring, clamp down and then click the clamp back in place on the RestoreX. After a minute or so the clamp will force blood out of your glans and you may need to clamp down further by another click or two to maintain a secure hold. I said this in another post, however, after using the aforementioned clamping method for a 30 minute session, I came out looking like a dried up house plant. Things returned to normal within a couple of minutes.

I updated my profile. Is there any other traction device that works other than restorex? The design is flawed in my opinion. There has to be a better way other than Smashing the head of my glans.

Penimaster Pro is probably the other most used device these days when it comes to Peyronies patients.

Look it up, you suck your glans into a vaccuum cup using a bulb that comes with the device and use either a rod extender or belt around your knee depending on which one you order.

Based on what I've read on here about it even that device seems to be a hit and miss.

Sadly not a single traction device works flawlessly. They all have negative aspects to them.

You are doing it wrong. You clamp behind the glans. Not on it. If you have a foreskin, retract it all the way back and clamp on the ridge. Works perfect. Just takes some getting used to. And the stretching power is unlike anything else. Have to try it to believe it. See my "restorex traction diary".

Do you mean you clamp it kind of where the head meets the shaft?

Pfract I don’t understand. Wouldn’t I be clamping the shaft if I did that. I thought you only clamp the head.

There's two parts to the clamp, the flat faces that clamp on your glans, and the clamp latch. Yes, your glans is in between the clamp faces, but the latch goes where the shaft meets the glans.

Is that clearer?

You "clamp the shaft" but, just right before the glans. You don't squish on the glans. Like i said, check my whole thread. I have lot's of pictures there and i wrote a lot about the difficulties i had in the beginning trying to use it. I was doing it wrong, etc.

So please... have a look.

Oh come on now !!
It's simple,, the upper and lower ridges on the clamp face are positioned immediately after the ridge on your dick head then clamped down tight.

If you are clamping in the wrong spot would there be a lot of pain?  I try to clamp where it's been talked about and usually settle where there's zero pain (seems to be in the area all of you are describing to clamp down)

RestoreX is supposedly the safest on your glans. The vacuum devices can cause blisters and the loop before the corona devices can injure the corona.

It takes a few minutes to clamp down hard enough with RestoreX and you shouldn't clamp for more than 30 minutes at a time, but if you follow these instructions RestoreX is safe.
