Home Cure for Surgery While Waiting For Prostate Surgery

1 Comment On This Article

Hello, and thanks for your website. I hope to post progress reports here, as I am just starting on a program to combat Peyronie's disease myself.  I noticed a strange curve in my penis a little over one year ago, and considerable pain when erect. Naturally, I Google'd my symptoms, and self-diagnosed! Luckily, my current urologist has confirmed my diagnosis...

Personal experienc of grafting surgery for Peyronie's

After poking around the internet, I have started massaging castor oil onto the top of my penis, where I feel the plaque underneath. I'm a bit of an overachiever, so I do this a few times a day. At night, I apply a cotton pad, more castor oil, and wrap it up with a self-adhesive bandage. (I'm single, so this poses no awkwardness...)

Also picked up a bottle of 500mg L-Carnitine from the local co-op. I'm hopeful that the plaque will dissipate in two-three months.

Also, btw, scheduled for surgery in May to shrink my enormous prostate... But that's another story.

Thank you for sharing your Peyronie's journey. Must admit I like your attitude.

You say you have seen an urologist but you don't say what he recommended or how severe your condition is. Oral treatment and topical oil / creams may help but you may want to consider all your options at this stage and this article will help you to identify / eliminate some treatment options.

Have you looked into traction therapy? In my opinion traction is worth trying in most cases, i.e. as non-invasive, low cost treatment option that has helped many men to reduce their penile curvature. Dr. Levine, one of the best known Peyronie's specialists in the world today agrees but I strongly recommend to read My Peyronie's interview with Dr. Levine. It contains wealth of information and advice for any "self-diagnosed enthusiast" like us!

Traction therapy is also commonly used following penis surgery (to prevent penile shortening).

Some men believe (rightly or wrongly) that their Peyronie's disease is the result of their prostate surgery. You may want to research this subject more and discuss with your doctors, i.e. if not the same doctor, make sure they both know everything there is to know about you situation.

You may also find John P. Mulhall, M.D. book about Saving Your Sex Life: A Guide for Men with Prostate Cancer helpful read at this stage.

I hope some men that have had prostate surgery will join in and give you some advice and support.

I wish you all the best in the future and look forward to following your progress report.

Kind regards,
