Having Suicidal Thoughts After Being Diagnosed With Peyronie's Disease

1 Comment On This Article

I was diagnosed with Peyronie's disease 3 months ago. My fiance has left me, the doctor was very unprofessional, in his words " you have peyronie's disease come back and see me in a year good bye".

I've lost the ability to have a love life, lost the girl of my dreams, and think constantly about my problem, and yes have had Suicidal Thoughts.

Someone please tell me what to do. what will help me to just get me back to being my old self.

I very sorry to hear about your situation but I applaud you for reaching out. That is always the first step and the first step is the most important one.

I wish I could say I'm surprised to hear about your doctor's attitude but even though the awareness of Peyronie's has improved drastically in the last few years this is unfortunately still too common, both among the professionals and public.

I strongly recommend you try to find another doctor, someone with experience of treating men with Peyronie's. I do not recommend specific doctors but APDA (Association of Peyronie's Advocates) has Physician Finder Opens in new window symbol on their website that you may find helpful. While this article can hopefully help you to prepare for your next appointment.

There is no cure for Peyronie's but there are number of treatment options available. You don't say anything about your condition, i.e. is it mild, moderate or severe, but the good news is that you are in the early stage of the disease and the sooner you react the more options you have and the better results you can expect. This article compares the most common Peyronie's treatments today. I hope it can help you to identify which option may be best suited for your condition.

It is very important not to ignore the emotional side of the disease. Getting Peyronie's is a great blow to any man and difficult feelings and depression is quite common. Suicidal thoughts however are very serious and something that needs to be addressed immediately. Please confide in a trusted friend or family member but also consider seeking professional help. We all need help to get through big blows in our lives and you have been through some big blows in a short period of time.

I'm very sorry to hear about your break-up but if your fiancé left for this reason only then she may not have been the right women to share a long life full of ups and downs (as life tends to be). You of course need your time to grieve your relationship but don't make it let you lose sight of what you need to do now. Now you need to concentrate on your condition and your mental state. And when the time is right you can start dating again. The real girl of your dreams is likely to be still out there.

It is very important to keep things in perspective where Peyronie's is concerned. There is a popular saying that says something like “Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional”. I find this quite fitting description when dealing with Peyronie's disease. Pain is what the disease does to you, suffering is what you do to yourself.

There are things that can be done and taking action, i.e. researching your options, seeing "proper" doctor and starting some form of a treatment, can help you to get back some control of the situation.

I hope this is of some help. You can contact me anytime if you have any questions or if you just need to vent. There are also number of online forum that you may find helpful, just make sure you are familiar with the pros and cons of forums before visiting any!

I wish you all the best in the future and I would appreciate it if you keep me posted how you get on.

Kind regards,
