Need opinion on Doc recommended VED device...
« on: June 27, 2012, 12:35:12 PM »

I went to a new urologist yesterday who recommended getting started with a UroMatrix device. I'm supposed to go in tomorrow to talk with the rep who shows you how to use it. It seems most people mention using the 3-cylinder devices, not sure, but it looks like this company only makes the single...just wondering if anyone has used them or has any suggestions on what to get - I'm about 3 1/2 months into peyronie's. Not really clear on the benefits between the two devices. The good thing is that the doc said this company files for you to try to get it covered by insurance.

 I'd appreciate it if someone could look at the link below and tell me what they think, or maybe another one to ask my doc about prescribing. I want the device that will give me the best chance of correcting my upward curvature.

I had a lot of success with the single cylinder VED my doctor prescribed.

One thing to remember the instructions that come with it are for sex. For peyronies go to the VED board and look up the single cylinder program I used. It helped me and others.

Any questions let me know.

IMHO, any VED is better than no VED, but the 3 cylinder one makes more sense to me.  That's the one I bought and it has served me well so far.

Does anyone know the exact sizes of the 3 different cylinders, for the recommended protocol version? I may be able to order the 3 separate cylinders from Uromatrix.

Dylan:

As far as I know from my experience with VEDs, cylinders from one company's VED to another will not fit. The Augusta Medical Systems VEDs cylinder sizes can be seen on their web page. The link to that site was sent to you by PM earlier today. Go on line to that company, get their 800 phone number and call one of their representatives relative cylinders that they can supply by size for their VEDs.

The SomaSTF three cylinder model VEDs have various sizes to apply for anyone who might have need for oversized cylinders. However, their cylinders will not interchange with any other company's VED.
