This was mentioned in another thread.  Although I have read about it in Walsh's and Mulhall's books, I know many who read these posts have not so I thought we  could use some wisdom from "the brothers".  Causes, cures, is there hope for erections after this?
Thanks everyone,

And for those just tuning in:


By Mayo Clinic staff

Peyronie's disease is the development of abnormal scar tissue, or plaques, in tissues inside the penis. When a penis affected by Peyronie's (pa-ro-NEEZ) disease is erect, it's usually bent and may be painful.

Peyronie's disease may prevent a man from having sex, and men with Peyronie's disease often experience stress or anxiety related to this disorder.

Research about the effectiveness of nonsurgical treatments for Peyronie's disease is limited. Surgery to correct a curved or bent penis is usually recommended if the deformity is severe or prevents satisfactory sexual activity.

Peyronies is sometimes a result of RP. I am 2 years out from surgery and have developed a slight bend. It has not progressed. There is another conditin called Kelami's (urethal manipulation syndrome) which has a similar bend. This can happen from a catheter after surgery or the actual reconnection of the uretha after RRP. I am also on bimix injections which can also produce scar tissue if done incorrectly. Hopefully, some other guys will chime in about their own experiences with it. I am currently taking about 400 units of Vitamin E daily. Seems to help. You can also get an ultasound to determine where the scar tissue is.

I have had PD for about a year. It started showing up in May of 2009 and I have the real common upward curve. Mine was not caused by Injections but by too long a use of the constriction rings with a VED. The Plaque appeared right where I used to have two rings on for about 30 minutes.
I have never had the pain or nodules that some men get. It's just a curve and if I didn't use a VED daily without the rings, I would also be shorter. There are many suggested treatments, Vitamin E is the most common. I have been taking it since June of last year. Also tried Trental 400 or Pentox but it didn't seem to make a difference for me. So I quit that prescription.
Using a VED daily for 15 to 30 minutes actually seems to be the best non-surgery treatment.  The ultimate solution is a penile implant. I may go for one in about a year if the PD doesn't go away.
