Yeah, I stayed overnight in the hospital after my surgery and they pulled my drain and cath while I was there, definitely a strange feeling.  I would not worry about the slight curve you are seeing, its still early days and with cycling you should be able to straighten more.  My Dr. (Levine) told me before surgery that he would be happy with anything under 20 degrees after my procedure, and I am pretty straight (def much better than before).  It is best to keep it pointed north toward your belly button but honestly I was not able to do that very well and it didnt seem to make much difference.

Post Op Day 2:

I got to unbandage everything and take a "back shower" today! That's exciting for me because I am usually a 2 shower a day guy. Today is also the day that I get to move around a little more. I've done some of that just for a change of scenery but will admit that laying down with ice on my boys feels best.

After taking the bandages off I was surprised to see a slight curve to the right still. I imagine that will go away when I start to inflate and deflate in a few weeks. The craziest part was pulling the drain out. They had that bad boy wrapped all inside my sack and I felt every bit of it as it came out. Didn't hurt at all...just weird.

The pain is still very tolerable. I'm still just using Tylenol during the day mixed in with Meloxicam. The Oxycodone at night is key right now for me too as I don't usually sleep well at night so it's helped tremendously.

I'm not a huge fan of the jock strap they gave me to wear. It kinda digs in to my legs and I'm not wild about my but hanging out like that so I ditch them early in the day in favor of some bikini briefs I use for running. They're extremely supportive and keeps my semi-erect penis pointed at my belly button. From what I read that is the goal right now. If I'm doing it wrong please chime in. This, more than any surgery I ever had, I want to get right!

I read some of those too. But then I read some case studies that stated that you couldn't get your length back so I honestly quit looking. Dr. Lentz did make the comment prior to surgery that he would try to maximize the device so I had the feeling he would try to get me as much length back as possible.

I will admit, I did read almost everywhere that you can expect some added girth which got me more excited than anything. From what I've read on here it will only get bigger from today. That's promising!

Have you tried VED? I’ve had a curve my entire life that didn’t affect me, but after using the VED I’m straight as an arrow after-which is crazy to me.

Keep me posted on the Xiaflex injections and how it goes, would love to hear. Completely agree that who injects it is critical.

Howdy: Yes, I have a high end VED. It has helped with girth and rigidity but hasn't done anything in terms of the curve. My wife likes the increase in girth and rigidity so hey, a win is a win!

im sorry to be the one to tell you but it's hard that you will have an improvement soon
improvements in this situation take time and patience. wanting something soon might put you in the wrong mindset.
if you are depressed try talking about it and metabolizing your grief. don't act on your emotions in order to get an instant improvement because there is probably no way to do it

also personally i don't recommend a low carb diet. as a med student i think it's very easy to eat a lot of saturated fat and cholesterol on a low carb diet and that's like terrible for cardiovascular health (and general health). CV health is essential for firm erections (and for, you know, not dying prematurely)

Hey man, its been tough! Sorry for the late reply but you are right that its a long road and improvement wont come over night! Its almost been a year now and there has been some improvemnts but also worsening so yeah, its just really hard to deal with. I need to get my life and health back on track cause this whole thing has made me depressed!

Actually I haven’t had any noticeable change besides a stronger morning erection here and there.  As 20yo said, it’s gonna take a whole lot of time.  When I started all of this, I knew it was gonna be months before I saw any improvement if any at all.  I’m hoping for the best.  Try to cut the porn out, if you’re gonna masturbate, lube is a must.

All the best!

Sorry for the late reply!! Well better morning ercetions is a good thing. I just feel kinda hopeless right now, nothing is improving I really hope it will change over time. Seeing your own penis losing size is a nightmare. I'm getting really dark thoughts to be honest.

Taking Finasteride is a time bomb, to start having Erectile Dysfunction issues. Google it guys. Beware!

Ditto!  The drug should be taken off of the market!

Welcome to the forum USA89! I thank you for filling out your signature line and I assume that you have read our survival guide -->,3180.msg44057.html#msg44057 . So yes traction can and does help a lot of us guys here. It is important to remember that peyronies is a marathon and not a sprint when it comes to treating it. There are two different traction devices that you should look into - the Restorex and PenimasterPro. I have used both and they really do help and each one has different tensions and the restorex helps a lot with curvatures.

Supplements can help and it can be difficult to tell which ones are working. I am of the mindset that we need to eat healthy and try to keep internal inflammation down. Read the forum and don't get discouraged and start worrying a lot about this. All of us here have been shocked and devastated about learning that this disease has affected us. With time and patience and some of the treatments here you will find some relief . You must remember that you do not want to add injury on top of the peyronies with rough sex or over zealous traction. Again welcome .

This website offers hope for a lot of individuals and some things work for some and not for others. Traction worked for me and restored almost all of my lost length of 1 1/2 inches - along with girth. The supplements I took possibly helped me in reducing inflammation. It also got me into eating better and developing a strong exercise regimen.  Heat therapy also worked for relieving my pain and accelerating healing. There isn't another website around that offers what is here. We also have 2 awesome Dr's that are here to answer questions for free! What other website offers that? It is sad that some members don't see the value of a website of this kind.
