Supportive Peyronie’s Spouse Makes A Huge Difference
My name is Lance and this is my story.
About 10 years ago, I noticed two small pea sized lumps on the top of my penis. I went to the doctor and he said it was Peyronie’s Disease and he explained everything to me. My penis was not bent and there was no pain at that time. He said that it could stay the same or get worse over the years.
Well, it got worse over the years. In 2015 I started having pain during an erection. I noticed that my penis was beginning to turn upward and it was narrowing like a hour glass. About a month later, the pain and bending of my penis got so bad that I could no longer have sexual intercourse with my wife. I explained everything to her and we agreed to see what could be done.
I went to my primary physician who sent me to a urologist. The urologist didn't specialize in Peyronie’s Disease so he recommended a penis pump. I paid over $200 for the pump and used it for about 6 months. I could see that it wasn't doing much so I went back to my primary physician who referred me to a Peyronie's Specialist.
I went to the University of North Carolina Hospital and consulted with a specialist. He said I was the worst case he had ever seen. I had a lot of plague in my penis. He recommended surgery. The doctor then explained both procedures (grafting and plication). I chose to have the plication procedure.
To make a long story short, the surgery was a success. My penis is shorter but I can maintain an erection and make satisfying love to my wife. My wife has been supportive from the very beginning of this journey which makes a huge difference.
You have to accept the fact that you will never be like you were before in terms of size and length but the object is to be able to engage in intercourse. The saying that size don't matter is true.
