My name is DJ and I am positive I have Peyronie’s disease. I have always had a slight curve downward and to the left but very slight. I did some jelqing to try to fix this on and off over the last two years. This was a terrible mistake as I was not careful and did it too hard. It ended up giving myself Peyronies and now my curve is much worse. I noticed big changes about 4 months ago where I started to get pain and the curve was getting worse. Now my curve is probably about 50 degrees to the left and downward. It is very painful and I every day I can feel the scar tissue on the bottom of my penis get harder.
This is destroying my life and as many people with this disease, I feel hopeless. I have been taking vitamin E for about a month as well as rubbing vitamin E oil on the scars but this has not done anything. I have decided that I need to take action immediately to stop this from getting worse. What do you suggest? Should I get your large plan and start doing that? I would greatly appreciate some suggestions as I am overwhelmed and do not know what I should do.
The first thing I suggest is that you have a urologist examine your problem to verify what you suspect about this being Peyronie’s disease. However, it is possible that by excessive jelqing you only traumatized the blood vessels of your penis shaft and it is not PD. Based on the information your provided it does make sense that your problem is Peyronie’s disease, but you should really get this examination done anyway so there is no doubt about it.
By no means are you alone. About once or twice a month I hear from someone who caused his Peyronie’s disease by jelqing. By its very nature when a man does jelqing he will create an excessive and often brutal amount of internal pressure within the penile shaft that it is not built to take. For this reason when you jelq you take the risk that you can easily injure the delicate deep tissue layers of the penis, especially when repeated over a two year span of time as you did.
Using a large PDI treatment plan is a good idea in a situation like this. The more aggressive and faithful your effort to support positive tissue changes the more likely you will be able to naturally reduce the Peyronie’s plaque that may be present. I always suggest that anyone thinking about using a PDI treatment plan should first read my book “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” because there is a lot of good self-help treatment information that is not found anywhere else.
