My Peyronie's Symptoms
Hi ...I am a 60 year old white SOUTH AFRICAN with a history of heart disease. It started in 1987 with a heart attack AND consequent lv damage.
Over the years up to now, I had a triple bypass, 12 stents, 12 pta's (balloons) and finally an ICD during 2012. Since then I have been pretty stable with a lvt of 38%.
I have been exercising 4 times a week at the gym for the past 10 years since my early permanent disability at the age of 50. I have been doing 45 minutes cardio at an average speed and average intensity as well as a full circuit. My weight is well controlled.
CURRENT MEDICATION: COZAAR 25MG 1D, CRESTOR 40MG 1D, INSPRA 25MG 1D, CARLOC 25 MG 1BD, DISPRIN CV 5MG 1D, ISORDIL 5MG SUBLINGUAL WHICH I VERY SELDOM USE, PEPLOCK 40MG 1D, OMEGA SUPREME 2D, VITAMIN K2 (mk4 and 7)1D, ALZAM 1MG 1D IN EVENING, CITALOPRAM 20MG 1D, SLOWMAG 2D.
MY MINDSET IS GOOD AND POSITIVE. EXCERSIZE PLAYS A MAJOR ROLE.
I still enjoyed good sex on average once a week with NO enhancers, up to two years ago when I noticed that my erections was GRADUALLY getting shorter and weaker than usual. NO CURVETURES. MY URINATING PRESSURE ALSO DROPPED, BUT WITH NO COMPLICATIONS.
I started to physically examine my penis and discover a hard lump on the right hand side of my penis at the back where it protrudes from the body. It seems to be around the circumference to an extent. IT IS NOT NOTICABLE AT ALL. THE FUNNY PART IS THAT IT CONSTANTLY VARIES IN SIZE WHEN I TOUCH IT TO MEASURE ...THEN SMALLER, AND THEN BIGGER. I WOULD SAY FROM 1CM TO 5MM AND VICE VERSA. IT ALSO SEEMS TO MOVE AROUND.
I lived with this but eventually consulted an urologist. They did a scan and confirm that it is Peyronie's.
THE PROGNOSIS WAS NO OPERATION/INJECTIONS DUE TO THE FAILURE RATE. HE SUGGESTED HIGH VITAMIN E DOSAGES. HE ALSO MENTIONED THAT IT WOULD EVENTUALLY BURN ITSELF OUT???
I do not know where to go and cannot find a specialist in SA THAT SPECIALIZES IN THIS. SHOULD I USE ENHANCERS JUST FOR A HARDER ERECTION??? THIS WILL BE A GREAT HELP IF IT CAN WORK.
