Loss Of Penile Length - How Do You Fight Peyronie's?
About a year and a half ago I had what was supposed to have a simple hernia operation. The doctor damaged some nerves, which caused great pain into my penis especially when I had any sexual activity. There was also pain without sex but with sex it was serious.
About a year or so ago after a weekend of a lot of sex I could actually feel the onset of Peyronie's although at the time I did not know what exactly it was. I truly believe that the pain and extended sex combination caused the Peyronie's. I'm told that it is caused by trauma to the penis.
It first appeared as a bump on the right top of the penis. The right side was the side affected by the operation. There was no curvature or shortening of the penis. As time went on, I got the classic curvature and shortening of the penis.
I went to an Urologist and he put me on Pentoxifylline 400mg twice a day.
This did nothing but make me anxious each time I took it. He also told me to use a vacuum erection devise. I could not use that because in order to get the necessary suction for it to work I have to press it so hard into my body that it pressed directly into the damaged nerve and was beginning to reactivate the original pain from the operation.
My status now is I still can have regular sex. I don't like the curvature but I can live with it. I have read about guys who have it more pronounced than me but the loss of length kills me. That is what bothers me the most.
I went to another Urologist who says nothing helps except that the new drug Xiaflex can reduce the curvature. Reading about this drug it appears to have dangerous side effects and does not completely correct the curvature. What bothers me most about this new drug is nowhere in any of the studies or literature does in mention it can restore the length. I'm sure it does not and that is the most depressing to me.
