Hi Dr. Herazy,
I have been told by two urologists that I have Peyronie and told to come back in 4 or 6 months. I originally felt a tighter than usual erection and latter felt a lump inside my penis. I can feel this with my thumb and another finger, like a small ball inside the shaft close to the base. I am not sure how long I have has this for. I am not sure for how long a have had the curve upwards. It’s not big and I have asked my wife and she is not sure either. Looking closer I can feel where the bent is. I have had no major trauma etc.
I don’t have pain on erections but have been feeling some itchiness type pain when flaccid. And if I have been sitting for long time, I have felt really uncomfortable tightness beginning from under my scrotum to the top of the base of my penis. I get the sense that it’s where I felt the lump.
I have read that TRENTAL/PENTOX/OXPENTIFYLLINE has helped some people in combination with CoQ10 and have got a script from my GP. I took a test run today of TRENTAL 400 to check for side effects — none so far.
Should I continue with this?
I cannot comment whether you should take pentoxifylline (pentox) or not. That is a decision you must make for yourself in consideration with the advice offered by your treating doctor. Ultimately you have to feel confident with your treatment and know that it is right for you, and not just simply do what you are told to do.
It is good that you have not experienced any side effects to pentoxifylline, but the real question is if it will help your Peyronie’s disease or not.
I suggest that you consider using Alternative Medicine in the way that is described on the PDI website. Let me know if you have any questions in this regard. TRH
