Hi my name is Guy and I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

I'm 60 years old and started noticing pain in my penis on erections about 4-5 years ago. The pain subsided with time but I was left with about a 45 degree left wards angle starting at the base of the penis and some shortening.

I was able to manage to continue to have sexual relations with my wife until just recently. It was already kind of discouraging as I'm still interested in sex but her libido has been waning over the last few years. Now this.

Initially when I mentioned my problem to my urologist he guessed it might be peyronies but he was not knowledgeable in that area so he referred me to a Dr Bella whom he highly recommended. I think I waited a year to get an appointment with him but it never happened. I've heard he has his own health issues as well as a lot of existing patients. So finally I got referred to a Dr. Maciejewski who I saw in Nov of 2019. The basic impression I got from him was there was little to offer except potentially some expensive and painful injections with the potential for serious side-effects. He suggested that if I'm still able to function sexually to take a 'wait and see' approach.

Well, now I'm at the point things don't work anymore sexually so I'm looking for solutions. Looking online I see maybe traction is an option.

I was glad to find this forum because, man this is a lonely disease!

Welcome Guy, and you are certainly right, this is a lonely disease!

The best thing we can recommend for you up-front is to read the Survival Guide on the main listing of forums. It has a comprehensive overview of treatments, and from there, you can decide what sort of questions you have for us. It talks about traction, VED, supplements, injections, surgery - an overview of just about everything.

Take a read through that page, then hit us up with whatever questions you might have.

No need to be lonely here - we're all in this thing together.
