Is it too late to use VED if plaque has calcified?
« on: November 05, 2012, 01:27:39 PM »

Hi there

not sure if my plaque has calcified. i can now feel a hard 'string' of something under my penis skin from the base right to the head on the top side - I'm assuming this is the plaque calcified - and am wondering if this therefore means that VED is futile? Ie onece calcified it cannot be undone , VED or no ved?

thanks

My understanding is that there are several types of calcification.  In my opinion, it is unlikely that you can feel that it has become calcified.  However, a skilled technician and determine the type and degree of calcification during a penile ultrasound.

Using the VED is unlikely to reverase any calcification that exists.  That said, there are MANY benefits to using a VED.  And, when used properly, there are few negative effects.

Happy pumping!

thanks Brook

So do you mean that a plaque could also feel like it's a hard wire under the surface of the skin (like i have) but doesn't necessarily mean it's calcified?

What you are feeling under the skin may not necessarily be a plaque; it could be some other structure.  Even if it is a plaque, you cannot tell that calcium deposits are present by feeling it.
