It is of course true that if men are encouraged to get implants from Surgeons who do 4 or 5 surgeries a year or even a dozen or two that they will have suboptimal results.  That does not apply to the vast majority of men on this forum.  I might add that Merrix was the one man who reported being bigger after an implant than at any time in his life.  That was not a comparison to pre-surgery.  It was a comparison to his all-time largest size prior to Erectile Dysfunction or Peyronies Disease.

So unfortunately there is a bit of skepticism on the idea that Peyronie's Disease can ever go away on its own. I start by saying that this is the opinion of Dr. Levine, based on my two visits with him along with quotes that I've seen people post of him either here on PDS forums or on other websites.

From what I understood of Dr. Levine's opinion: Peyronie's Disease never goes away. If you had an acquired deformity that completely healed over time spontaneously, it most likely never was Peyronie's Disease.

Now the question is, how do we know what is Peyronie's Disease and what isn't? Well to be honest, nobody really has an answer for that. The diagnosis of Peyronie's Disease is clinical - they look for signs that line up with what we know about the disease (age, palpable lump, deformity, pain, etc.) and the doctor gives the diagnosis based on that. The more experienced the doctor is (the more cases he has seen), the better chances of his diagnostic accuracy.

Could a urologist give a Peyronie's Disease diagnosis based on a patient's complaint of a 2 week old acquired 15-degree bend from some injury he had? Yes! And could that bend resolve over time without treatment? Yes! And that would probably mean that he never had Peyronie's Disease to begin with.

In that same example, a patient complaining of a 2 week old acquired 15-degree bend from a known injury, could also walk out of a urologists office with a "no Peyronie's Disease" diagnosis. 2 months pass by and the bend progresses to 40 degrees. Well in this case, we now know that it is Peyronie's Disease and what he presented to the clinic earlier with was "early Peyronie's Disease".

You can keep drilling at these scenarios all day long, at the end of the day we just don't know enough about the disease to accurately diagnose people at the onset. The only thing doctors and patients can do is stay on the safe side. If you have an acquired deformity, begin nonsurgical therapies to stop progression and possibly reverse symptoms, and if the case is or becomes severe, offer surgical solutions. That's it.

I don't mean to make things sound grim, especially since this post originally was more on how this condition is affecting you psychologically, but the truth is that scarring (plaque) caused by Peyronie's Disease is incureable and never goes away.

I am realistic and not betting on this happening (although it would be a literal Godsend if it did) but if/when this does happen, when do the 6-15 months commence?  From the start of your first symptom, ie. a lump OR from when you are out of the acute phase and into the "stable" phase?

Does anyone know?  Has there ever been a member here who ever came back and said his Peyronie's did in fact spontaneously resolve after 6-15 months?  Just curious...

Well, it's because it's probably very bad documented, i do believe i also have it, and yes, is due to trauma of some sort, i've got mine for incorrect usage of a penile extension device (tight noozle attachment), i believe the most correct name for it is "penile traumatic neuroma", it usually causes some numbness and even a possible cause of neurogenic Erectile Dysfunction,  is very, very bad documented, i've read about 10 cases described in the literature. Like any neuroma, it can heal on its's own, but it can take up to 12 months, besides that, if causes pain or numbness or any other symptom after that period, this could be solved with (very careful) surgery (last resort), medications or physical therapies like li-eswt (shockwave theraphy), indeed, for those with neurogenic Erectile Dysfunction, li-eswt is a very promissing possible solution.

PS: Sorry if i disobeyed any forum rules, this is my first post.

So bustedchubb are you saying you got scar tissue in Corpus Spongosium ? Can peyronies do that, moreover does your glans become as big as before ?

Im pretty sure in the restorex study the average time since diagnosis was a few years. So yeah it seems to work.

I'm using a size master pro I got from Aliexpress. It's very similar to the PMP. My dent is right below the glans and I noticed traction mostly stretches the shaft.

That combined with the fact that traction puts pressure on my glans, where my dent is, makes me worried traction can make things worse instead of better.

What do you guys think about this?

I would also second the Cialis 5mg opinion. Much better than having it on demand. I use it and i only have very good things to say about it.

Bustedchubb, Hi friend, According to Brian Christine’s second secretary Regan - Brian Christine doesn’t accept foreign-international peyronie sufferers. So, Could you ask him why he doesn’t accept international people or why he accepts people randomly!? Thanks in advance. Sincerely.
