Peyronie's Has Destroyed My Life
I'm 62 years old I'm guessing about Nov. 2015 I noticed pain when My wife and I made love. I first thought it might be a prostate infection but there was no other prostate's symptoms. Then I noticed a dent on the left midpoint of my penis, then gradually it started bending to the right now I have in addition a 30 degree upward bend.
I take two different types of blood pressure meds, my erections were unpredictable and sometimes it just did not work. So I have used either viagra or cialia for the last ten or so years with good success. I suspected it was Peyronies I went to one urologist and got the wait and see diagnosis, I wanted another opinion so I saw another urologist.
With this one I actually took pictures and he was the one that said it looked like a 30 degree bend. His diagnosis, come back in Dec and if it has gotten worse we will look at injections.
As I've read with many Peyronies patient treatment success vary from one patient to another. As I speak after doing research on my own the injections and surgery procedures are definitely on the bottom of the list. I will share this with fellow Peyronies guys, my older brother had Peyronies and there was less treatment option then which was probably the late 80's. He ended up getting an implant and was very satisfied with it. I might also add another older brother had prostate cancer he too received an implant and is very satisfied.
As far as my treatment now I do 15 minutes of vacuum device a day take vitamin e and cq 10. And I would definitely try the traction device.
I do have concerns, even though the bend is not bad enough to prevent intercourse (some positions we can't do anymore) but sex is achievable. The issue now is actually ED and honestly it very well could be psychological with all the worries about Peyronies. Another question or two and I will close. I also take Coumadin from a heart valve replacement in 2005, during my stretching exercises I see no ill effects as far as bruising or irritation. But have seen warnings on vacuums about using the devices with men using blood thinners. If the ED persists I am considering using the Vacuum and constrictor bands. Guys I'm open to your advice and sharing your own experiences.
