Quote from: jackp on January 20, 2009, 11:15:49 AMI know you are far from this but 10/08 I had a successful implant and now have a normal sex life. Surgery is always the last option.IMHO get him on Old Mans VED exercise as soon as possible. This should help keep his penis healthy and keep size loss to a minimum. With his sex drive down he should have his testosterone checked. Not just total but all the most important testosterone is the bioavailable, disregard the total T the bio should be at least 70% of the upper range of the lab. I know this may be too much information all at once. Just encourage him to have sex as much as possible, sex is not defined as penis in vagina there are many ways to have sex, use your largest sex organ The Brain.You are a long way from where I started. The other important advice I can give you is not to try shots in the penis for Erectile Dysfunction, that is what caused my corporal fibrosis.Good Luck, there are many here that are willing to help. Peyronies is different for all of us. FYI I am 66 now.Jackp
Quote from: Paolo on July 23, 2020, 05:23:11 AM@discofeet.I have had good experience with Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) for pain management during my acute phase, 1 gram x 2 day. If he tries it get it with Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) included. Many people who don't eat meat are deficient of ALA.Pain should ease in about 1 week, if you try it please update thread.DMSO with Aloe Vera gel can also help pain relief, apply after washing or shower. Pain is extremely debilitating, physically and mentally.Good luckPaul.
Quote from: Hawk on July 23, 2020, 11:42:50 AMI too would recommend the ALC. There are studies that suggest it helps and it clearly helped my pain at least because I started and stopped it 3 times to made sure that was what was helping. Hopefully, you have read the survival guide. If not read it together, probably twice. It is a lot to absorb with casual reading. Here is the link https://www.peyroniesforum.net/index.php/topic,3180.0.htmlBe a little cautious with the candles etc. It might be perfect for him but many men think "Oh I see, she really wants sex and has it all planned out and I can't do that." They then feel like they didn't satisfy your sexual need, feel like failures, get angry and there is a blow-up. There is a saying that is generally true but of course with exceptions. Women give sex with the goal of intimacy, men give intimacy with the goal of sex. To a man, all intimacy ends in intercourse or what is the point and that is what he is apt to read into the candles, message, etc. Now if he is up for sex, no problem. If you both know in advance that sex is not the end goal, no problem, but communicate to avoid misunderstanding.
Quote from: projectpd on July 23, 2020, 04:10:14 PMHi Discofeet, sorry, have only just got back to the forum. Thank you for your kind words. I usually post on only scientific/technical matters, not personal/emotional, because that's my educational and professional background. But it's appreciated to be able to post on that sort of thing.So, yes, I am sure you should get a heat lamp. In no particular order, this is because of about 3 reasons,Firstly, the (albeit rare and small) studies on hyperthermia, which did not use a heat lamp to generate heat, but, they still did use heat and that was the assumption on what was the active agent. Although there was weird stuff in one about energy dosage that I thought was bizarre: Heat is heat. I posted about this, as you may have read from my previous posts. I was surprised the lamp I got seemed amazingly good value and is especially excellent at being able to position the light beam at just exactly wherever you want it. Much better than any normal lamp I ever had. I would even highly recommend it just to use for a normal reading lamp.Secondly, using heat helps with both stretching and VED, this effect is really obvious, am sure everyone agrees.Thirdly, heat usually helps with topical (=through the skin) substance absorption. (increases skin permeability)I have been using fairly intense heat for some time since then and not found any noticeable adverse effects.Rice socks or heat pads are not the same, because they use simply contact with hot materials to conduct the heat through the skin, this seems to me not as good as infra red light which irradiates it directly through the skin, with a lower capacity for blood vessels to transport the heat away. Having said this, I keep meaning to make a little rig to allow tiny infra red emitters to be worn over the penis and shining on it , as this would be more convenient, and save electricity bills. Regarding the latter, I did get a lamp that came with a 125 W infrared bulb. I had read a recommendation here, to get a 250W bulb, but the electricity bill would be more, even if the bulb is compatible with the lamp. With a 125W bulb, you probably have to be more careful as it needs to be about only 6 inches from the penis. yes it seems hard to understand about his behaviour, if you mean that has changed directly as a result of the Peyronies Disease. After all he'd have exactly the same problem with someone else, or by the sound of it even more so, and same problem with masturbating. It is true that painful erections are unpleasant, I remember the pain outweighs the pleasure! I didn't look into enough possibilities as much as I could have to fight the pain and inflammation. Antinflammatories seems to be the most obvious thing (e.g. dexamethasone, diclofenac, and many substances such as discussed in threads such as DMSO + X). Options that seem likely to be useful to deliver them directly include DMSO, iontophoresis, liposomes, and yes massaging with oil and heat. I did use serrapeptase, orally, which seemed to work a bit. since you think massage helps, you may be interested I bought a 10,000Hz "percussion massager" from Aliexpress. I have no evidence whatsoever that this is either safe or effective - maybe it's dangerous! but I like it!
Quote from: Chichibug on February 22, 2007, 04:49:19 PMhowdy again fighter,i am glad that you and your wife didn't lose your sex life as the peyronies set in. i have tried the plan you laid out--the dinner with wine and sexy lingerie... i threw away all of the lingerie because he didn't like it at ALL. that was years ago. maybe things have changed enough now that i should give it a try again... i have offered to fulfill any fantasy he has (with the one exception of not including other people) but he says to keep things like they are. i know he is a shy person in this way, but i can't believe that there isn't just one fantasy in that head of his... heck, i have some of my own, but he has never asked.... i will try this plan again. maybe after that 'works' i'll bring up this board. who knows? the timing isn't mine... when it's right, it's right.thanks again, and i am sooo happy that you are enjoying your life. --Chichibugps what treatments are you using for the peyronies? what supplements? my husband takes some supplements (mostly just herbal antioxidant types), maybe i can slip in some more for him. oh, and i have been meaning to say that i LOVE your picture.
