QuoteI would urge those who are about to do it to do several things. 1. Get it done sooner before the plaque calcifies. It feels like my doctor sticks a needle in a bone inside of my penis when I get the shot. Imagine that. It's awful. The softer the plaque the better. 2. Don't have sex too soon after shots. Listen to your body. 3. Wait til most of the swelling has gone down to start traction, modeling, and VED. 4. After your shots, have your doctor wrap your penis from tip to base but not so thought that you can't pee. Leave that in place for at least 24 hours and when you take it off have another wrap ready to go. Quickly clean it and then stretch it out to re-wrap it immediately. The medicine is weird and causes so much awkward and potentially painful swelling. Leave it on for 24 hours! Trust me. 5. Have faith. It may look worse before it gets better but in a month it may look an incredible amount better. Be patient. Listen to your body. Don't overdo it. Be aggressive but smart in your therapy. If something starts to hurt, stop it. 6. I wish you all the best of luck. It does get better. My penis is now working as well as it did before it started. One final comment. When this began almost two years ago, I had two plaques getting progressively bigger. One was at the tip, which I still deal with; the other was about halfway up my penis shaft. It was always smaller, but it was definitely there. We never injected that one but since my first round... That plaque has completely disappeared. Nobody can explain that, but the other one wasn't going anywhere so I'm glad I've kept doing this. All in all, do whatever you think is best and try to avoid surgery at all costs.
