Does Penis Traction Device Work For Upward Penile Curvature?
I have peyronies for 4 years now, the doc just wants do surgery. I refuse I'm on a homeopath med called silicea for scar tissues. I have an upward bend not left or right, would this device work for me with an upward bend which has also shortened my penis quite a bit.
My Peyronie's Answer
I'm assuming you are asking about penis traction device.
The direction of the curvature does not matter when using traction device. This article explains How To Wear The Device depending on the direction of the curvature, i.e. for upward curvature the device should be folded down away from the body (see photo).
This article contains links to all the articles on my website that are about Traction Therapy. Including a video interview with Dr. Levine that you may find interesting when considering if traction therapy may work for you.
You don't say how severe your curvature is but I'm assuming it is severe as your doctor is recommending penis surgery. The best curvature correction Dr. Levine has witnessed was in a man with 70 degrees calcified plaque that in 6 months managed to get the penis straight. I would have found that hard to believe if coming from anyone else than him!
Traction therapy may help with the curvature but it is guaranteed to lengthen the penis if used over extended period of time. . That's just how traction works (think of long neck Kayan 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.
I hope this is some help but feel free to contact me anytime if you think I can be of any assistance. I wish you all the best with your treatment.
