Just took time to stretch and such. But you can order a different top piece for cheaper than full device and swap between straight and bent time.Thanks. That's really encouraging.
Also, disagree greatly with last post. I have seen tremendous growth and curve lessening from RestoreX and Cialis. It has made my symptoms basically go away besides slight curve. But not accompanied by any pain or discomfort, so HUGE win. Won't work for everyone, but not need to make sweeping conclusions and just say go right to surgery imo.

If you research the physical issue, it's not something that can be rectified by bending in the opposite direction. Surgery is the only way to straighten out. However, even surgery does not get rid of the indents. You need to consult a specialist.I appreciate your perspective, but I'd like to try alternatives to surgery before doing something that drastic. At home traction is the first step, but I'm also considering flying to Utah for injections in the New Year. That will be a significant expense, but I have yet to find a urologist in my area who seems to be as focused and expert in the condition
I had a 30° bend. I tried everything. Finally, I stopped resisting and surrendered to the idea of surgery. I started to do my research. I found a surgeon in my local area, Toronto, and I made an appt to see him. He fit me in three weeks later. Of course, surgery is not fun. The healing process was a bitch. But like everything else, including life, it's over in a blink of an eye. A year later, I still have the indents, but I'm straight and pointing up. I have a regime where I keep it pointing up at night when I sleep with something I found online, not those super uncomfortable rods! That regime helped tremendously with the healing process.
My advice is to start putting in effort to find a surgeon in your area. Don't resist surgery, its the fastest way to get straight and in my experience its the only thing that works.

I realized yesterday the CONSTANT throbbing in my sack was from my pump simply resting on the bottom of it. Once I lay on my side or support it, it goes away. So that was a game changer for pain. Ended up tucking a pair of boxer inside my briefs and under my sack lol.
My actual shaft stopped aching as well.
