Georgia Hunter and/or Lapis_29,
I have a somewhat-embarrassing question to pose. It's related to my "Man Parts."
Over the past 6-12 months or so, I've had a gradual onset of what seems to be Peyronie's Disease. The onset has been gradual, and, thankfully, not to the extreme that many sufferers experience.
In my case, the underlying plaque (which I first palpated and my general practitioner confirmed) has caused an indentation on one side, just under the glans. There is a small amount of pain at rest and a bit more when stimulated. There also seems to be a minor loss in length, though I'm not sure why.
(Is nothing sacred?!?)
Would you have any thoughts of what might help halt/reverse this condition?
I've read some pretty discouraging reports from many men, no matter the treatments sought.
- Surgery seems to only create more scar tissue.
- Medications seem marginally effective and don't seem to address the underlying cause.
- There are devices one can "wear," with the promise of "straightening-out" things, but those seem marginally-effective, impractical, and uncomfortable - if not medieval.
I did find one website where some have claimed that applying Castor Oil topically has been somewhat effective. Some have taken to adding the use of a sonic toothbrush (the backside of a spare tip) for 5-10 minutes, after applying the Castor Oil, with the thought the sonic waves help break-up the plaque. They also suggest adding Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Gotu Kola. The website does NOT sell any of these items.
Any thoughts - from anyone - are welcome and appreciated.
