I was diagnosed by Dr. Levine about 7 years ago with Peyronies disease when I was 51 years old. When I told him I did not want to be cut on he politely told me he could not do anything more for me. I have read way too many horror stories about Peyronie surgery. Like I think I read on your website it does not make sense to operate on something that has already shown it is going to heal with an abnormal amount of scar tissue.
What I want to know is what can we do for our sex life after Peyronies has left me this way? My wife and me have had to be very careful about our sex life because my upward curve is close to 90 degrees, so there is a lot we can't do any more. We have learned to be satisfied with limited contact because my bent penis prevents complete entry. I am a lucky guy to have a wife who has stayed with me in spite of all this.
Thanks for all that you do.
What I have written many times on the PDI website is that a man should be extremely careful and reluctant to undergo Peyronies surgery because of the increased risk of developing even more scar tissue and a worse case of Peyronie's disease after being cut on. I have warned that before agreeing to undergo penis surgery it is very prudent to first use all of the possible non-surgical and non-drug options possible for at least a year before even thinking about being cut on to remove the PD scar tissue. I am not against Peyronies surgery; I am against hasty and premature surgery as though it is the only option, and as though it is a simple and sure-fire cure for this terrible problem. It is not.
You ask for advice about your limited sex life, but I must back you up a bit and suggest that you might not have a limited sex life if your curve was improved or reduced. This is a good place to start to help your sex life, by working to improve your Peyronie's disease. It sounds like you have not tried to increase or support your ability to get rid of your PD on your own. I suggest that you read How to start Peyronies treatment.
The subject of sexual problems when Peyronies is in the bedroom is huge, and the subject of possible solutions is complicated. There is so much to be said about improving sexual performance and compatibility in spite of a curved penis that must refer you to the book, “Peyronie's Disease and Sex.” I wrote this book a few years back to address this problem that affects most couples who deal with Peyronies; few couples are exempt; sex problems are common and just a matter of degree. What I can tell you since writing this book is that almost all people who read it and follow the ideas in it will improve their sexual ability and regain either a small or large degree of their lost sexual pleasure. As an outside observer in this area I can tell you that I have yet to find a couple whose sex life is not helped by using this book; some to a great degree and some to a small degree but everyone seems to gain something.
