I'm sorry to hear you're going through this. Here are some steps to consider:

  • Talk to Your Urologist: Let them know about your new symptoms. If you don't feel heard, seek a second opinion.
  • Physical vs. Psychological: Your symptoms could be more than just psychological. Ask for further tests or imaging to check for conditions like Peyronie's disease or corporal fibrosis.
  • Medications: Keep taking Cialis and ibuprofen as prescribed, but discuss any changes with your doctor.
  • Rest and Monitor: Avoid activities that might worsen your condition. Keep a diary of your symptoms to share with your doctor.
  • Manage Pain and Anxiety: Pain can increase anxiety, which can worsen symptoms. Consider seeing a therapist and ask your doctor about pain management options.
  • Hope for Improvement: Many conditions can improve over time with proper treatment. Stay hopeful and proactive in seeking care.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Stay hydrated, eat well, and avoid smoking and excessive alcohol to support your recovery.

Reach out to your urologist or a new specialist to get the care you need. Your health and peace of mind are important.

Everyone is free to choose there type of treatments. I'll provide this link to the Propecia forum -->Propecia Forum . I personally would never want to take a drug that blocks or lowers my DHT levels because of the possibility of permanently messing up my endocrine system.

Of course, it sounds like you're experiencing some discomfort due to frequent nighttime erections. While it's not a common issue, there are a few things you could try to potentially reduce their frequency:

  • Adjust sleeping position: Try different positions, like sleeping on your side or stomach, to see if they reduce nighttime erections.
  • Manage stress: Practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing or meditation to lower stress levels, which can contribute to increased erections.
  • Temperature control: Keep your sleeping environment cool with light bedding or a fan to minimize discomfort from heat.
  • Limit fluids before bed: Reduce fluid intake a few hours before bedtime to lessen the need to urinate during the night, potentially decreasing erections.
  • Consult a healthcare professional: If the issue persists, seek advice from a healthcare provider for personalized guidance and potential medical interventions.

It may take some trial and error to find the most effective approach for you.

It's interesting to hear about your experiences with different treatments like the Soma Correct VED and the challenges you've faced with traction and other methods. Your description of your situation, including the scarring, lumps, and dents, paints a vivid picture of the complexity of Peyronie's disease.

It's understandable that you're considering different options, especially with the differing opinions from your urologist. It seems like maintaining your erectile quality is a priority for you, which makes sense given your current situation.

As for consulting with Dr. Trost, reaching out to a specialist like him for insights on your condition, especially regarding potential connections with diabetes, could be valuable. Exploring all possible factors contributing to your condition may provide more clarity on the best way forward.

Thanks for sharing your experiences—it's always helpful to hear from others navigating similar challenges. Wishing you the best in finding the most effective management plan for your Peyronie's disease.

The rigidity of the glans (head) of the penis can vary among individuals, and what's considered "normal" can differ. In many cases, the shaft may feel firmer than the glans during erection.

Regarding your question about using a vacuum erection device (VED), it is important to follow your doctor's instructions or the instructions for the device. They can advise you on the most appropriate technique and determine whether, in your situation, it is recommended to focus on filling the glands specifically or pumping the entire penis.

Although Cialis remains in the body for approximately 72 hours, it's not something I can decide on my own. I think it's best to discuss this with my doctor to get recommendations tailored to my health condition and medical history. They'll be able to select the optimal dosing schedule, taking into account my needs and minimizing potential side effects...

I usually take tadalafil in the evening, around an hour before bed. It seems to work well for me.

Typically, these side effects may decrease as your body adjusts to the medication, but it's essential to consult with your doctor for personalized advice.

Some people find that taking tadalafil before bedtime helps alleviate side effects like headaches and muscle pain, as it may allow your body to adjust while you sleep. However, your doctor can provide specific guidance based on your medical history and individual needs.

Remember, everyone's body reacts differently to medications, so what works for one person may not work for another.

Peyronie's disease can indeed cause physical changes in the penis, including scar tissue formation, which might affect sensitivity and sexual function. It's possible that the scar tissue from Peyronie's has altered nerve sensitivity in your penis, leading to increased sensitivity and possibly contributing to premature ejaculation.

It's essential to consult with a healthcare provider who specializes in sexual health or urology to get a proper diagnosis and explore treatment options.

In the meantime, you might consider exploring techniques for managing premature ejaculation, such as pelvic floor exercises, mindfulness techniques, and communication strategies with your partner. Remember that you're not alone  ;)

Quote from: Vril8 on Yesterday at 08:13:14 PMthe only plausible theory I have is that I laid on top of a nocturnal erection.

Man... wtf. Maybe having a congenital curve can make someone more prone to things like this.
