Can VED therapy correct baseball bat shape (the opposite of it)
« on: January 09, 2016, 05:46:55 PM »

Hi guys,

I am close to deciding using VED therapy for my hourglass but I have one main question here. After I damaged my penis using a penis extender, my penis now does not fill with blood symmetrically. The base of the penis get engorged so much and the second half of the shaft and the tip does not, to the point that the base is double in girth size than the tip, so my penis look like a cone in semi-rigid.

All of this goes away when fully erect, but I wanted to ask you guys if you think this shape in semi-rigid can be corrected with VED therapy. There is obviously something going on that is making that shape to appear while before the injury it never happened.

Please, any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

If you havent done so already I would suggest you sent a PM to Old Man he would be the best person to ask

Hi Stabler67,

Yes, I have actually be talking to him. He has been really helpful! Just wanted to see if anybody ever had symptoms like mine and whether VED therapy did help at all.

Thanks!

krazylord,
I have used a VED somewhat, but more for penile health than correction. So let's see what others have to say. But just from my understanding of penile anatomy and how VED's work I think this would have the potential to help you. What is happening is that the forward part of your Tunica is not expanding was easily as it used to (mild fibrosis?). So it explains why you have these symptoms while semi-erect. And then on becoming fully erect you have enough internal pressure to fully engorge both sections again.

VED therapy essentially exercises this tissue with the intent of making more pliable again. So the mechanics would make sense to me and if I had your symptoms I would not hesitate. Just follow Old Man's instructions and protocol.

LWillisjr, thanks for your reply. Really appreciate it. Sometimes seeing that nobody understands what you are going through can be frustrating, and your post and explanation made sense to me.

I will continue to work with Old Man to get started with the VED therapy then. He and I have agreed that for my symptoms there is no need to get a full erection with VED, since my purpose is to get the penis to look healthy again. So if I can get the semi-rigid to look symmetrical in semi-rigid, I can do the cycles up to that moment, without needing to keep pumping to get a full erection.

Thanks again!

I found that it helped with length and therefore maybe a few degrees in curvature after about 2 months use. The main thing it helps with is the pain. I usually get pain when first getting erect and for a few minutes after until I get warmed up. I think this stretching helps but if I take a break from VED the pain returns. I have bottlenecking just behind the glans with 25-30 degree curve.

Hi TheE,

Glad you are seeing some improvement. In my case I have 0 curvature, My plaque is at the base of the penis, and what I have is deformities along the shaft, meaning hourglass, or the base of the penis getting engorged more than the distal part...

I got the Augusta VED device, and started practicing today. Just tried a couple of times to see how to use it.

Hopefully it will help with making my penis more symmetric on flaccid and semi-rigid, because when erect is pretty much good.

Thanks!

krazylord

The reason for you to use VED is not to let the disease to progress and hopefully you will not develop a curve.
I started VED three years after the onset and still got some results.
Just careful not to over-pump, pump to the level that is comfortable and no pain!!!

Thanks James,

I agree with you, although I would say that it can also reverse some of the symptoms (hopefully), like the hourglasses you "cured". Hopefully that can happen with my deformities, if they are indeed due to mild fibrosis.

Wish you good results with the VED, good chance it will reverse your symptoms as you have mild fibrosis.
My plaques were calcified when I started, but VED, Pentox & low dose Cialis softened them.
Regarding hourglasses I think mainly the VED done the job

Hi James,

You say your plaques were calcified when you started VED. How long more or less did it take to calcify, and how long after onset did you start VED?

My injury and subsequent plaque formation happened many years ago and after getting stable, I used to feel the hard lump (plaque) but recently I'm 90% sure that it feels softer than before.

I did traction for a while with PMP a couple years back but got impatient and stopped when I didn't "see" improvements in the bottlenecking or the soft glans.

I then started using Tadalafil mostly to have sex but I'm almost sure that's the cause of my plaque gradually softening (and probably the traction I did for a while but stopped).

I feel dumb now, because I'm almost sure If I had continued with traction (combined with the use of Tadalafil) it would probably be even better (softer/expandable) now. The Tadalafil part I was just ignorant about it but now I'm taking 25mg Viagra daily and will start VED/Traction this weekend.

Besides your issue when semi erect is everything else normal? Like no pain, no erectile dysfunction? Are you still having sexual?
