It Is Never Too Late - Successful Peyronie's Plication Surgery
I was 63 when my problem with PD began. I tried stretching devices, but they didn't help. The first urologist I consulted acknowledged the problem as PD, but essentially said there wasn't anything he could do. It was discouraging to hear that, but the research I had done caused me to pursue the matter.
I learned of a urologist in Pittsburgh, PA that also had a practice not too far from where I lived. He was great. He listened patiently and ask questions. As some believe there may be a link between PD and Duypreten's Contracture, I explained I had undergone surgeries on both my right and left hands for that condition.
To determine the extent of the curve he injected the penis at the base.
It was not painful. It only took only a minute or less for the erection to occur. He then explained the surgical options and I decided upon Plication Surgery.
The surgery went fine. No complications and I was able to resume sexual activity in about six weeks. I have an appointment soon to discuss the excess foreskin as the result of the surgery.
My advice to men, young or old, don't waste time and money on stretching devices, or other gimmicks. Seek out a good urologist and get help.
I would add you may wish to find a young urologist. The first one I consulted was older. He offered no help at all. His attitude was like I was 63 so what's the big deal. The doctor who did my surgery was in his early thirties, a more recent graduate and perhaps more knowledgeable of the latest treatments. He was also far more understanding.
