Best VED protocol for dents?

This post is for Old Man, Tim 246 and other VED experts. I've bought a SomaErect 3-cylinder VED (after advice from Old Man) and I just want to try to pull out the one dent I have developed in the LH side - I'm still straight, no Erectile Dysfunction, no pain, no length or girth loss except specifically at the dent, no palpable plaques (I know you can't always feel plaques) and developed the dent quite suddenly in November 2012.

I've downloaded the protocol and I noticed the instruction about not using the 'A' cylinder if the penis is on the large side, so I decided to start with the modified protocol, substituting B for A on the protocol.

I shall be resting off the VED for a while (see my other post on VED and Penile Lymphocele), but when I do restart I was after some advice:


  • As I don't need straightening or regain any lost length, but just want to try to improve a single dent, should I be using the 3-cyl protocol or is there a single-cylinder protocol that may be more effective, like the one from jackp & Old Man in the stickies? The tightness of the B cylinder means I am not getting any stretch in girth on the dent when pumped
  • Should I be trying to use the A cylinder, even though I will not be able to get anywhere near a full erection in that tube?
  • Any other advice for dent repair?

For the first day or so of the protocol I did feel a slight "pull" in the area of the dent, which was encouraging, but now feel nothing specific in that area, even when fully pumped. I have been getting a pretty good vacuum from the Soma, but may have been over-doing it, despite no pain, discomfort, oedema or red marks during or after pumping, just a little minor discomfort where the rubber base of the cylinder "digs in" to my pubis as it pulls back under the effect of the vacuum. I think I'll go easier and try to hold the cylinder to stop it digging in when I restart.

All help and advice gratefully received.

Like any Peyronies treatment, VED is a marathon, not a sprint treatment.
Regarding your questions:
If the A cylinder is to small for you, don't use it, you can replace it with B.
The slight "pull" of the dent is a good sign but after a few days of preliminary stretching the place you will not feel that anymore, even it is continue to stretch in a slow pace.

I used a VED for over a year and it never did anything for my dent.. Traction did seem to lessen it though that may have also been due to the pentox/alc/coq10 etc taking effect.
This is an emotionally destructive condition, we all have it, let's be nice to each other.

As I have stated before, in my opinion VED is a part of the treatment and not the "only" treatment.
Based on my own experience and what I have read on the forum it helps many.
As everything with Peyronies, some people get improvement with VED and some not.
For sure the blood flow induced by the VED helps keeping the penis healthy.
