New Onset of Peyronie's and Nervous

1 Comment

For the past year there has been a noticeable curve to the left of my penis. I am 51 and have high blood pressure and acid reflux and benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). My mother had Dupuytren's contracture.

I have been married for 25 years. We raised 2 children but have not been happily married and now we are empty nester's. I routinely swim and exercise and am 6'1" and weigh 188 lbs. My personality is high strung at times and intense. My family of origin has members who have been alcoholics and I have attended Alanon for 11 years.

About a year ago I noted pain in the left base of my penis which resolved over several weeks. Slowly there was a noted mild curve to the left of my penis at the base over time. There was no pain with intercourse.

Off and on I have symptoms of BPH, or at least that is what I thought was causing the pain. I have a family history for this condition and have a diagnosis of it. I take uraxotrol which seems to help my urinary stream.

I have not seen a urologist for Peyronie's but have talked to two urologist friends of mine about it and feel pretty comfortable that I have the earlier stages of it. 

I have not experienced much pain in the process of this so far. Over the past two weeks I have noted some pain in the penis along with what I believe is prostate pain. There is some burning and aching along the shaft and on the outside of the shaft and glans.  It is intermittent and makes me "aware" of the area and is distracting. I have no pain with erection or orgasm. There is pain afterwards.  Currently I have started Trental three times daily and Vit E 400 mg orally twice daily.  I am on Co Q10.

Dear T

Thank you for sharing your story with My Peyronie's readers. What you describe sounds like Peyronie's disease (including Dupuytren's in the family) but I strongly recommend that you make an appointment with urologist with experience of this condition get formal diagnosis and discuss your treatment options. You may still be in the acute phase but early intervention is considered important by most Peyronie's specialists today.

You may be a good candidate for traction therapy, even combined with medication and even injections, i.e. so called combined treatment plan. I recommend reading my interview with Dr. Levine if you have not done so already.

I'm sorry that you describe your marriage as not a happy one. Getting Peyronie's can put a strain on even the happiest marriage so this is something that you may want to try to do something about, e.g. go for relationship counseling. Having a supportive partner can make a lot of difference when dealing with something like Peyronie's disease and it can actually make couples come out stronger together. I hope you consider "fighting" for your marriage.

I wish you all the best in the future and hope you will keep us posted about your progress.

Kind regards,
