I have been diagnosed with Peyronies disease. It came on very quickly.
I work as a consultant. I am 62 years old. Until recently I enjoyed a very energetic sex life. I began to notice around May of last year pain when I acquired an erection. My penis remained straight despite the pain. I was able to ejaculate and erection was not a problem.
I was on a job. My wife visited me mid October last year. Then she went home. I had two more weeks until the job ended. I decided to wait until I returned to California and give my penis a chance to heal. During first sex after two week layoff my penis was bent to the left. I was stunned. I can feel the hard areas along the left side of my penis. My urologist suggested vacuum therapy.
I bought a device with a large tube that still permits my penis to bend. I am an engineer. To me this is just teaching my penis to continue bending. Now I learn there is multi-tube device and suggested therapy.
Where is this mythical multi-tube device ?
Greetings John K,
I do not endorse the idea if using a vacuum erection device (VED). You can read this information in Peyronie's disease treatment with vacuum pump (VED).
Over the years I have encountered too many men who had negative experiences after using the VED, either causing injury that resulted in Peyronie's disease or they noted that the device simply made the penis larger than usual for a few minutes but did not help the actual problem of PD. The fundamental issue of Peyronie's disease is not the penile curvature weak or erections of Peyronie's disease that get your attention. The real problem of PD that causes all the other nasty problems that you are experiencing is due to the existence of the Peyronie's scar inside the shaft of the penis. Using a VED will not get rid of the Peyronie's scar; it will only stretch the tissue temporarily.
As an engineer I am sure you are familiar with the concept of trying to apply traction to a material that has rigid and less rigid areas; the traction force will be absorbed by the less rigid areas and will not allow the more rigid area to be stretched by the traction force. This is the fallacy of the VED concept to treat Peyronie's disease, as well as the mechanical penis stretcher or extender devices. This idea was discussed in some depth in a post I wrote called My Peyronie’s disease started after I tried to straighten my curved penis with a penis stretcher, should I use another one? I would appreciate a comment or two from you concerning the engineering and physics principles that are discussed in this post.
As far as where you can get a double-walled VED device, I can only suggest that you speak to a urologist who advocates the VED idea. The problem with the double-walled VED is that while it does not allow for the lateral bending of the distorted PD penis (which is good), it also does not allow for the expansion or stretching of the tissue (which is not good on one hand since this is supposed to be how this device is purported to help PD, but is good because it is less likely to injure the penis while it is being used).
Overall, it is my opinion the VED is not an effective therapy for Peyronie's disease. Note, that it is not only my idea that the VED is not a great Peyronie's therapy; many urologists are against their use for the same reasons I cite. Having said that, you will note that makers of the VED and those MDs who advocate the penis pump product for PD will point to a few positive published research reports for the VED. My answer to those positive VED research reports is the same concerning the thousands of positive research reports for hundreds of new drugs that come out annually. These hundreds of new drugs, because of the positive research behind them, receive FDA approval each year . And each year hundreds of them are taken off the market in a year or two after they are proven worthless or injure hundreds of people in the short time they are used. TRH
