Hi All - My urologist wants to do a doppler ultrasound on me in a couple months. I have a few questions
1 - are there any real risks with it. I think I am against the
based on reviews but I think this isn't a big deal the doppler
2 - he mentioned wanting to do it so he can see the
(which he felt and identified) and to check blood flow. However I have zero issues with
, so I was wondering if he could just do the ultrasound
What do you guys think, is there a need to be erect if I'm not having any
20 degree curvature to the left
Diagnosed Aug 2022
(I think finasteride caused my Peronies)
Currently on 2.5mg cialis and 400mg of
(twice a day)
Started Restorex on 11/17/22

Honestly I would say it's a good idea as it gives the doctor a broader and clearer picture of the issues at hand. You will obviously be injected with something to induce an erection but it will only be one time so I do not think there are any major risks with it. Serious urologists perform doppler regularly.
You could always ask him to be sure but my opinion is that an Ultrasound could be of good value as it offers more clarity for both patient and doctor. However it must also be said that even ultrasounds can sometimes be flawed as some things might go undetected even after it's performed.
Best of luck on your ultrasound and I hope if you perform it you'll get good news.
30 years. Sudden rightwards curve detected in June 2020
narrowing on right side and about a 20° curve to the right.
Weakened erections and instability due to narrowing.

I have done it several times already, it is not big deal, except for the pinch you get from the injection.
It is not the same thing doing it without erections, for two main reasons:
1. With erection your doctor can assess the blood flow into your penis - even if you don't have
, if you have Peyronie it is important to check this.
2. With erection your doctor can better assess the location of the
, its size, its thickness, etc...
39 yo. Peyronie's disease, first diagnosed around May 2021. Initial curvature around 55-60 degrees. Tried
injections (10 in total) + RestoreX for over a year. Curvature has not changed. I got a new pump/indentation from using RestoreX
