Nightmare On Turn-Up Street

3 Comment

Don't know why but I slowly started noticing being shorter and shorter and pain at the base. I have never had much to gloat about but it wasn't too much time until I prayed to get back that penis I always was embarrassed about. Can things get worse. Hell yes.

Statue man with long bent nose

This problem has made it a nightmare....half of the time just to urinate. Sex is a no go. Too curved and too short to even have much sensation even if you can enter her.

Trying the injections. God bless my insurance company. They approved it. My Doctor in all of this was the third one I went to. The others just shrugged and said oh well. I know the women didn't really care but the man should have offered more than he did. And he may be right after it's all over. I have to see.

The Doctor now at least has given me hope and I couldn't have dreamed of having a person that made me feel more comfortable with this beyond awkward situation. He is super and is in it for the "long" haul. He is making money for sure, but I get a genuine feeling from him that he wants to help me more than anything.

The injections burn a little and the bruising is very eye opening, but it's all very do-able. Just got the second injection and going to start "molding" or stretching it next appointment. It will be very disheartening if this is all for not.

If you have this condition, I can't tell you how sorry it makes me feel. I wouldn't wish this on anyone.

Dear Donit Rong

Thank you very much for sharing your Peyronie's story. Unfortunately, those reading your story on this website are likely to be in similar position as you. However, reading about others experience is very helpful. Not only can men pick up some tips and ideas, it also helps them to realize that they are not alone dealing with the dreadful disease. It can give them much needed hope and inspiration.

It is great that you have found good doctor that is working with you and like you say, is in it for the "long" haul. Like you, it always surprises me how many Urologists (mostly male) show little empathy to this problem. You would have expected them to understand how difficult this is for men's feelings and self-esteem.

It's great that you have started your treatment. You don't say which injections you are having, I'm guessing Verapamil, or even Xiaflex (as you talk about "molding"). I hope you keep us posted about your progress.

Yes, it is very disheartening that there are no guarantees that any Peyronie's treatment works. But look at it this way, it is very unlikely to work if you do nothing (it is assumed only 5 - 15% of Peyronie's cases resolve without any treatment). The sooner men start treatment the better results they are likely to get.

You are in good hands now, that's the main thing. And it is good to hear you have good insurance in place. Very important.

Stature Burma women with long neck

Regarding the loss of penile length. Traction therapy will help in that respect. There is no question that traction does lengthen the penis if used for prolonged period of time. That's just how traction works (think of long neck Padaung women in Burma). It however does require commitment, you need to wear the device for up to 8 hours per day for few months for best results.

You can realistically expect between 0.5 – 1 cm in penile length per month of use. So to increase your penile length by 1 - 2 inches (2.5 – 5 cm) you are likely to have to use the penis traction device for 6 - 10 hours daily for 3 - 6 months.

You may want to discuss with your doctor about adding traction therapy to your treatment plan. That would be in line with Dr. Levine (one of the best-known Peyronie's specialists) Recommended Non-Surgical Treatment Plan.

I wish you all the best with your treatment and I hope you keep us posted about your progress. The good thing about nightmares is that they always end. Let's hope that will be the case in this case!

And if there is anything I may be able to assist you with, just be in touch.

Kind regards,


Bent out of shape 9th September 2017

I just went to see a Urologist earlier this week. He wants a picture of me fully erect so he can see exactly how bad it is. He gave me a xiaflex info packet to read through and a follow up visit in a couple of weeks.

I've always been proud of being larger then average. Not anymore. My wife has noticed too of course. My curve is far forward near the tip. The tension when fully erect is a little painful but not bad bad. Doctor said this condition is usually caused by some type of trauma. Don't recall anything like that.
My wife is not very sexual so there's no chance she'd go crazy on it, lol.
This whole thing really creeps me out.

I appreciate the input of others though I have not found super positive info and answers.

    I’m sorry to hear about your condition but it is good to hear that you have already seen a doctor. Unfortunately, there is no cure as such for Peyronie’s but there are number of treatment options and Xiaflex is just one of them.

    This article compares the most common treatment options today and contains direct links for further information. Hopefully it can help you to identify which options you would like to discuss further with your doctor. Many combine two or more non-surgical treatments, e.g. injections, medication and traction therapy.

    I also strongly recommend reading my interview with Dr. Levine as it contains lot of valuable information about the different treatment options available today.

    Peyronie’s is very difficult condition for any man to get. And you are right, lot of the stuff you will find online is either negative or untrustworthy (overpromising, fake). It is therefore very important not to forget the emotional side of the disease.

    And those that are lucky enough to have partners should try to include them as much as possible. In my opinion that can really make the difference to have a supportive partner. I know you say your wife is not very sexual but in this case her love and support can make all the difference. Maybe she will find some of these tips for partners helpful.

    And there are success stories. Things may not be exactly the same as before but that does not have to be the end of the world. The goal is to be able to stay sexually active and live happy healthy sex life. And totally straight penis is not necessary for that.

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

    Best regards,
