Welcome Mersault to the forum and thank you for filling out your signature line. Please also download and read our survival guide -->Survival Guide .This will give you a better understanding of peyronies and it's different treatments.
If you study this forum and read the members personal experiences it will far outweigh any other information you come across. I am sure we already have any article that was published here in the forum. One thing to take note on is that most urologists are not qualified to really treat a man with peyronies. Yes they can say do this or that but they do not have the experience. Make sure that you are more educated with this disease than your Dr you pick. Also make a list of questions before your first Dr's visit.
Strength to you brother on being a single parent! It is a challenge just raising children these days with both parents. My mom was a single parent and raised me and my brother in the 60's and 70's.
Restoring girth is a challenging topic as two men are not alike in it's restoration. Some men have reported having success with VED therapy while others say that traction has helped. With peyronies there is so much mystery as to the how and why each man's healing response is. You must test each protocol to see if you receive any benefit. The problem with some men is that they want it NOW. They don't realize that this game plan is a long marathon and not a sprint. It takes time and patience with any treatment with peyronies. Adopt this mindset and you will have overcome a lot of metal anguish.
You should look into VED therapy and traction for you. Also how are your erections? Cialis will help with inflammation and provide the expansion needed to bring in fresh oxygen to your penis. Also have you gotten any preliminary measurements of your penis? Hopefully you will be receiving an erect ultrasound as this gives a better picture of everything inside. Take note though that some plaques are difficult to see and can be somewhat hidden on an ultrasound. Study the forum and keep worrying to a minium - it's good to have your here.
You point about manual traction not being safe is fair. I can see how that can cause injury.
But I doubt prostatitis was caused by the actual traction. If antibiotics helped then it was a bacterial infection. Manual traction may have contributed to the transmision of bacteria or you may have caught it from somewhere else.
Hi all. Noticed curvature in penis starting two years ago only after sexual intercourse. Normal erection is straight. Over the course of the two years, it has started to form a default curve when flaccid, and also shrunken a bit while flaccid so the skin bunches up (uncircumcised), but erection is still straight (until after intercourse). There is a severe hourglass effect in the transition between flaccid and erection. Only recently I've been feeling some pain at the point of curvature (left side, middle). The most unbearable thing is that at almost all times while sitting down, the feeling of the sideways position and the skin bunching up makes me constantly conscious of my penis at all times, squirming in my seat to get it into a comfortable position and sometimes pulling it the other direction to prevent it from rubbing against my left thigh. This, and the recent sporadic pain, is getting on my nerves to the point of near insanity.
I've been to two doctors. One at the beginning who just told me "it's Peyronie's and there's nothing you can do about it" and the second one recently who after I told about the pain gave me a quick check and said "you're totally healthy, this is normal. Peyronie's is not a real disease and there's nothing you can do about it".
I'm kinda at a loss here. Need some encouragement at least if not advice.
