Your statement is true that younger men tend to heal better and have better underlying erectile function. The experts on Peyronie’s disease would likely not be reluctant to perform surgical correction on the young man (under 40 years old) with stable Peyronie’s disease who has a curvature which is interfering with sexual activity. Should your experience be that you are not finding success with your local physician, you might check out the physician referral region on this website as there are surely physicians there who will operate on young men with stable Peyronie’s disease.

Previous I’m 21 and I’m going to have surgery of penile plication. How often does the patient have pain after this procedure? How long does the pain stay? Is the scar very uncomfortable? How much time to recuperate from this surgery?
Next If the penis has a 70-degree bend upward and surgery is performed to correct this condition, what would be the expected result? (Worse and best case).
