Peyronie’s disease, which affects an estimated 1-23% of men, is finally beginning to get the attention it deserves.
But even though the condition is under-addressed, the symptoms are hard to ignore.
Don Cummings, author of Bent But Not Broken experienced symptoms at the age of 48, which made sex painful for him, and then it got even worse.
“I could not insert my penis into where it needed to be inserted,” he said. “So oral sex and hands became the preferred way to go. Then, as things got worse, I couldn’t really bear to have my partner touch my penis. We would have sex, but to reach orgasm I would simply take care of that myself.” – Don Cummings.
Board-certified urologist and Director of Clinical Excellence for GAINSWave, Dr. Judson Brandeis, was questioned on his experience on successful and effective treatment for Peyronie’s disease for a special article featured on Kinkly.com
Below is a take-away from the full article:
“Men can realistically lose 1-2 inches of their penile length,” said California-based urologist Dr. Judson Brandeis of the emotional impact of Peyronie’s. “For better or for worse, much of a sexual man’s self-confidence is bound up in the length of his penis, and when that is compromised, it can have devastating effects on his sexual self-worth.”
Brandeis suggests seeking a GAINSWave provider, not only for pain relief but for length issues. Unlike Xiaflex and surgery, he added, this shockwave treatment can potentially restore full erection length.
