I think my injury was about 2 years ago. I did not notice anything right away except for black and blue on the lower part of my shaft. After about 1 and 1/2 years i noticed i was having a harder time getting and maintaining erections. I thought it was because i was a diabetic. About a month ago i noticed that i had a dent on the lower left side of my penis causing it to bend slightly to the left. I also have pain while erect and soft. my urologist appointment is not for 2 more months. I was wondering if this was early stages or later? I have also lost some length and girth. I am very scared and nervous. I want to start your best plan as soon as possible, i don't want to waist 2 months of your treatments if i don't have to. Do you know what the total loss of size could happen as a result of having Peyronie's disease? When i order your large plan should i add anything else to it to get the best results? Thank you in advance.
Scared 50 year old
We are all scared when we first come to realize how bad Peyronie's disease can be. Try to take some of that energy you now waste on feeling scared and put it to positive use by reading and learning how to help yourself with this problem so you can instead feel confident and in control of yourself.
A dent (also called a ding, nick, divot or hinge deformity) such as you describe is common. Sometimes there is only one, and other times they are numerous. Sometimes these persist, and other times they slowly or rapidly evolve into other deformities such as a bottleneck, hourglass or simple curve or bend.
Pain can and does occur in Peyronie's disease while both erect and flaccid; however, some men experience pain only while erect, or only during sexual activity; I only had pain while flaccid. As you will soon learn there are very few things about Peyronies that are not variable.
A common and consistent finding of PD is loss of penis size. It seems that the larger the penis, the more size that can be lost. While most men speak in general terms of getting smaller, not too often will actual numbers be mentioned; just like you most men do not give a number. It seems like admitting to the actual reduced size is too embarrassing or uncomfortable to reveal that kind of detail. When the actual size loss is mentioned it seems that 1 to 1 3/4 inches of lost length, and about the same for lost girth or circumference is what I am told commonly. Occasionally I am told the loss will go up to 2 inches or more. One poor devil told me that his 8 inch erection was now just slightly more than 4 inches. I have never heard of anyone losing only length or only girth, but always both; I suppose it could happen, but I have not heard of it.
I always encourage men to start Peyronies treatment proactively when there is strong evidence of the diagnosis, as in your case. It seems logical that treatment should start the sooner the better, while the fibrous tissue changes are less well developed.
The large plan is a smart way to start. Do not add anything to it initially – although you could if you feel compelled to do so. A good therapy to consider adding, if that is your intention, is the gentle manual penis stretching program since it is so unique compared to the rest of the items in that plan. It is also comparatively inexpensive and it never has to be replenished, making it a good buy for a whole new range of treatment that you are able to use.
The best results come from two separate factors: 1. Being faithful and aggressively applying whatever plan you select to start with. 2. Spending the time and effort to learn the exact size, shape, density and surface features of each of the internal scars that are present in the shaft. This information is critical to use as a valuable referencer point to determine if your plan is or is not working. If you cannot accurately and in detail the physical structure of your internal scars you will not know if and when change occurs. Without this valuable knowledge you are forced to guess about your plan, and this is obviously to be avoided. Go to different parts of the PDI website to learn more about how to do this. You can also read about it in chapter 4 of the “Peyronie's Disease Handbook.”
