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.
