Hello everyone

I have finally decided to go ahead with my plication surgery. The surgery is scheduled for tomorrow and keeping my fingers crossed for a positive outcome.

I'm very nervous about the surgery but having one of the best surgeons in the country to do the plication gives me a lot of hope for good results.

Will keep updating on my progress. 🤞

I developed a rotation that is coming from the "root" of the penis causing lateral deviation of the penis when is erected plus the dent that I have on the left side of my penis. For years I only had the dent, but couple months after the P-shot I developed the instability on the "root" of the penis. I don't know if traction or the VED could help or make it worse, what do we do?

Thank you so much for the information. I am still looking for the most suitable treatment for myself. Will contact them as well though the effect seems frustrating.

Hello, how is the progress? started using ved? how are you doing

Hey, thanks for asking!

I came on here to provide an update and have only just seen your post. I've been visiting the site and reading lots since I posted in May 2021, so I'm surprised I missed the comments on this thread, sorry about that! So here's the update (less detailed but hopefully of some use):

Let's start with a picture: https://imgur.com/rKL0mX8
The first two photos within the picture I posted previously. Alongside them are two more taken since, to show progress.
The four photos were taken in: December 2020; May 2021; October 2021; June 2022, respectively.

The deformity/difference with the first picture is still more than visible, but I believe there has been considerable improvement in the hourglassing.

What I've been doing since the last post:

Fasting: I completely abandoned this. I'm not against it, and I stand by the fact that it definitely helped during phases of (re)inflamation, I simply haven't felt the feeling of inflammation since, I'm happy to report. If it started up again I would probably consider fasting, but only for limited periods of time in the hope of immediate impact, rather than a longterm plan for improvement. But maybe that's just me.

Manual Traction: Although I do think it can be beneficial, and I agree with some of the comments above, I have not done this since.

Supplements: I have continued as above with 300mg Q10 and 200mg L-Argenine pretty much every day.

VED: So this was the new thing I hadn't tried before. I started in mid-June 2021, which fits nicely into the narrative of improvement based on when the pictures above were taken, but I admit that I have not been very good or consistent with the VED. I did it quite meticulously, following the protocol on here, until November-ish (so for about 4/5 months), then did it inconsistently until January 2022 - not deliberately, just, life was getting in the way - and I haven't really touched it since.
In my opinion, the biggest improvement, referring once again to the pictures, appears to be October '21 to June '22 (i.e., photo 3 --> photo 4) - which is when I was using it way less/not at all - more so than May '21 to October '21 (i.e., photo 2 --> photo 3), when I used it all the time. I liked the VED, I was very careful with it and could feel areas been stretched or pulled or in any case that something was happening. After finishing I often felt an odd kind of warmth. Been meaning to start again.

Tadalafil: I was prescribed Tadalafil in July 2021 and this instantly improved my erection quality and frequency, getting regular (but not every day) morning erections, for example. I do feel sometimes that my glans is not inflating as much as it used to, so this deterioration worries me. I have taken the Tadalafil pretty much daily now for over a year, and continue to do so.

So. Has the VED helped with the hourglassing, contrary to most accounts on here? Or is it a coincidence in terms of timeline, and is it the Tadalafil that has in fact made the real differece?

My plan is to absolutely continue with the supplements and the Tadalafil, and perhaps to start the VED again and try another regular stint to address the soft glans issue and possibly build on the hourglassing improvement. My bend has remained consistent and has not improved or deteriorated. I am able to have regular sex without any problems, other than being ultra aware in my head of what's happening and of being careful to avoid new injuries.

Thanks for reading and any comments/suggestions/advice you may have. All the best :)

This is excellent news. I woke up last night and did a short prayer again. This is so exciting as it is a the start of a new beginning. Don’t be alarmed if his penis looks good and then starts to turn black and blue after a day or two. I had no fever or infection and other than a few misguided steps on my part and miscommunications with one of his assistants, the follow up was fine. Your husband is so lucky to have you and thanks for taking the time to write. Big hugs and prayers

I can personally say that when I was in constant chronic pain hard or flaccid I would always use a heating pad on low off and on and also warm showers.  I unfortunately could not use any meds for pain because of my ears.  I also believe that Cialis can be very beneficial in several ways, inflammation reduction and fresh oxygenated blood. Preserving penile size and length too. I had a hard time differentiating discomfort from actual pain.

These are great news! Surprising to see the medication he has been given, but for sure the doctor has to know what he is doing. The implant size he got will leave him happy, most certainly.

Lee’s wife here.

Lee was sized aggressively with 22cm cylinders and 2 cm rear tip extenders.

He will be very happy with that when he wakes up, he is still sleeping peacefully back in post-op. Dr. Lentz called me personally after the procedure, and said Lee did very well. The Peyronie’s scarring was mild. So, venous leakage was his most troublesome problem. He’s been given so many post-op meds, no doubt he will be sleeping the rest of today.

He was prescribed:

Oxycodone 5 mg. every 4 hours as needed for 5 days
Neurontin 300 mg. at bedtime for 14 days
Meloxicam 15 mg. once a day for 10 days
Bactrim antibiotic for 5 days
Tylenol 500 mg. three times a day for 10 days
Geri-Kot once a day.

Will update again on Day 2.

Good Morning, guys. Lee’s wife here.
We arrived yesterday (Sunday) to the Hampton Inn-Midtown in Raleigh. The hotel is 0.5 miles from Duke Raleigh Hospital where Dr. Lentz is performing the surgery. If you mention you are a Duke patient, you receive a special room rate of $99 a night plus tax. We are staying on the first floor, next to an exit/entry door and ice machines.
Warning: In room refrigerators are pre-set to a higher temp, impossible for ice packs, if you were to bring those. We had a special refrigerator brought in room to keep those packs very cold after some complaining to management was done. Otherwise, wonderful room and very clean.

We received pre-op/post-op instructions at Lee’s last visit with Dr. Lentz. Lee is now in surgery. He is Dr. Lentz’s first patient of the day. Lee is receiving both Gentamyacin and Ancef for infection control via IV. He was given 3 Tylenol via mouth in pre-op to control fever afterwards per Dr. Lentz’s orders. He was shaved, Gentlemen. We will be able to pick up discharge meds/pain pills here in the patient pharmacy in hospital at discharge.

The approach will be Scrotal/Penile.

Lee signed permission for a three-piece Coloplast Titan to be implanted.

As soon as I get him back to the hotel and comfy, I’ll update with more information.
