I've been a member here for over a month now but this is the first time I'm posting due to my lack of interest in anything and depression from my Peyronie's disease. I'm posting this on a Tuesday afternoon since I got fired recently after over 2 years with my company due to my lack of interest in work and barely showing up.
I'm consumed with researching and curing my disease that it takes up most of my day.
On a positive note, I just landed a much better, much closer job that has no problems with me coming in late in order to make a DR appt. (Can't cure jack without money or insurance).
Currently taking Colcrys, verapamil gel(just stopped, doesn't work), L-arginine, ALCAR, GPLC, Vit E. I'm looking to get Pentox without a prescription since my Doc won't give it to me.

I first started with inability to get an erection. This concerned me instantly especially since I've always had such healthy and frequent erections. After about 4 weeks of no improvement, and the appearance of a lump, I started doing research and found out about this horrid disease. I showed all the signs. I was in a little denial, but new that I had peyronie's deep down. This isn't the first time I've had a horrid disease affecting my genitals, I just defeated Chronic epididymitis a few years ago, (Chronic pain & swelling of testicles) so being timid about talking about my peyronie's wasn't an option. I knew I had to get on this right away and did. Of course I started with the usual 'why me' stuff but have decided that I didn't let Chronic epididymitis defeat, and i WON'T let this defeat me either.

Fist I would want to congratulate you, not because you have Peyronies that non of us wanted, but because:
* Finding a better job
* Being proactive and treating this disease
and i WON'T let this defeat me either

Regarding your doctor, you have to find an other one that understand in Peyronies and to add Pentox and low dose daily Cialis, CoQ10 (if you are bellow 40 or Ubiquinol if you are older) will help also.
I was adding VED to the treatment to keep good daily blood flow into the penis.

By the way, who diagnosed you with Peyronies and how?

Welcome to the forum
Age 71, Peyronies from Jan 2009 following penis fracture during sex. Severe Erectile Dysfunction.
Lost 2" length and a lot of girth. Late start, still VED, Cialis & Pentox helped. Prostate surgery 2014.
Got amazing support on the forum
