No, the swelling is gone. There is only the incision and one very small bruise.

That's remarkable! Good for you Norm! Every day I am 1 step closer to making that call. It's a tough one. I hate to to do anything radical before I know for sure what this outcome is to be but I hate to waste time too. The constant irritation/pain is always there now, but who knows if after surgery it couldn't be worse? I don't know how much ibuprofen the liver can take but I'm on a steady diet these days.

I'm not a doctor but I'm afraid my surgery might be a bit more complex with removing badly damaged tissues, grafting and possibly an implant. Scary stuff.

I'm so happy for you and the way it seems to be going for you. You give me hope!  ;)

Knight,
Have you been to the doc about your condition? The reason I ask is, if you are still having that much pain, they won't do surgery yet. Pain indicates that you are still actively changing. They cannot do surgery until you are stable, otherwise, it will continue to change even after the surgery, thus, wasted. I was three years from onset to surgery. I think I was stable within the first year. How long have you been having trouble? It almost always has to be more than one year.

Norm - Yes, I have seen 3 different urologists and this has been going on for around 8 years. The pain, as it is today, is new. I do not know exactally when this initially happened but it seems to be getting worse, even after all this time. I believe that is because I am very happily married to a very beautiful, faithful woman and we continue to be as sexually active as we can be. I also had problems with the VED which seemed to trigger my latest set back. No matter how careful I try to be the VED seemed to irritate my condition.

K,
I'm sorry I didn't look back and research your age before I commented. I just assumed you were a younger man. The thing that is bewildering me is your pain. The pain is usually associated with the active phase of Peyronies Disease. You have had it way too long to still be changing. Then again, this ailment doesn't have any rules. It can go active, stable and active again at will. I am grasping here, but the only thing that helped me when I was in the pain phase was heat and Pentox. Assuming again, I guess you've tried that?

NORM! I remember reading in my thread that you were going to undergo this surgery and now you've done it! Congratulations. From what I've read you seem to be healing at a very quick rate. I wish you luck and please keep posting!

Thanks. I have been extremely pleased thus far. The docs office and the hospital were amazingly efficient. The doctor and his trainee were knowledgable and very genial to deal with. While waiting for our spot in surgery, the doctor came in and visited a long time like we were old pals. My only pain was the first couple hours immediately after the surgery. Since then has been a breeze. There has been discomfort, but nothing like the pain I had imagined. I am 15 days post-op now. There are still a couple stitches that have not turned loose yet. My penis is almost back to looking normal again. The only evidence is an incision about 3/4" long on the right side of my shaft. A possible scar? Who cares? I had already given up my male modeling career anyway. Erections were not pleasant for a while, but even that is getting better. I will get to try it out on a test run in two weeks(Jan. 18, but who's counting). I am actually looking forward to that. And as I stated earlier, I feel like I gained some size. I don't see how that is possible, but if I think it, that's good enough for me. I will continue to post as anything noteworthy happens. And I will still stay around here to help out with moral support. After all, I do still have Peyronies Disease.

I have to tell you about this. Last night I was going in to shower as my wife was coming out. She waited around because she wanted to take a look and see how my healing was going. She hasn't looked in the past 10 days or so. I stripped down and moved to the light. We inspected the incision and looked for stitches, etc. She said that it was looking very good and was healing nicely. Then she caught me by surprise. She said, "I don't know, but for some reason it looks bigger." I had not mentioned anything about my thoughts on that to her. The comment was totally unsolicited and not influenced by anything I had said. If I think it looks bigger, and she thinks it looks bigger, it must be bigger. But I have no logical guess as to how that could happen. I do plan to ask the doc about that when I go for follow-up.

Norm, I had to chuckle to myself when I read this. My thought is....   if she thinks it is bigger, then by definition it must be so.   8)

Three weeks today since my plication surgery. All swelling is gone. All bruising is gone. All stitches are gone. The incision is dis colored and still puckers a bit but is healing nicely. I feel almost normal again. There has been no pain for quite some time. There is still some mild soreness where the plicating sutures are. Erections themselves are no longer painful. However with an erection, when I squeeze the pelvic floor muscles or Keigl muscles or whatever they are called, I feel it in the sutures. I am not quite ready to use it yet. I might entertain the idea in another week. I am still glad I did it.

I am just two nights away from my one month allowance for trying sex again. I am feeling anxious. Unless this feeling goes away, I may jump the gun and give it a try tonight. I have an itch and that's the best way I know to scratch it!

Thanks for your accounting as well as your words of support to myself and others.

No doubt your type of surgery needs to be looked at by more doctors. 
End of week two of a de-gloving, not the least unhappy with anything so far but the trauma (yes I watched the videos and still went ahead!) that "it" goes through is amazing.  Thank goodness for pain killers they give you though the procedure.
Really did not realize how invasive de-gloving seems to be.
All that being said I know my Dr. is the very best at what he does so I will happily live with the extra pain and discomfort that I have with the de-gloving.

Straighter days ahead!

I saw Dr. Morey today for my follow up visit after my penoscrotal plication. I am cleared and pronounced fit for duty. I still have some soreness in one spot. I can put my finger on it. The first couple of times my wife and I tried sex, I was unable to finish because the discomfort outweighed the pleasure. But this last time, it was improved enough to finish what I started. It sure was nice! She and I agree that the surgery was worth it. She told him that she was happy, happy, happy! I was extremely happy with. Dr. Morey and I will recommend him to any of you that are considering the surgery route. After visiting with him about this forum, he gave me his personal cell number and personal email and told me to let him know when anyone here was going to contact him. He said he would make certain to get back to them immediately. He was very interested in our combined efforts to help each other and our camaderie in this distinct club. I should caution you beforehand, if your curve is greater than 20 degrees, he is going to recommend surgery. He feels that other treatments are only effective on less severe bends. You can argue that all you like, I am just sayin'. To my knowledge, and his, he is the only surgeon offering the penoscrotal approach, but logic says it will have to become more prevalent because it is such a minimal surgery.
So, to make a long story short (I know, it's too late for that!), I am cleared and released. I am happy, he is happy, and most importantly my wife is happy. Contact me if you want to know more about the surgery or if you are going to contact him. I will plow the field for you!

Thanks Waldo. I wish you success this weekend. Don't be disheartened if it doesn't work the first time. You'll notice I had to try again. Even now, after almost 12 weeks, I still have a sensitive area, but it is better every time. Just be sure and use a lubricant. Really, you're gonna need it to lessen the trauma. In any event, best wishes for a new, and much appreciated, sex life!

I got some updated info today regarding the cost of my surgery back in December. Many have asked, but I did not have any numbers until now. The surgeon's fee was about $2600. Of that, I only had a co-pay of $40. The hospital charged $5600 for the day surgery.  Of that, I had a $700 co-pay and deductible. The anesthesiologist was about $840 and I paid a deductible of $80. So, it looks like the total cost was +/- $9040 and I paid $820. I think these were the final costs. If anything changes, I will post and let you all know. Honestly, I had expected it to be twice that amount.
