I had surgery (temporalis fascia graft) last summer. My penis is approx 3 inches in length. Before Peyronie’s it was 7 inches. I still have the curve and use the Fastrack traction and soma pump. Using both has improved the use of the traction device because it enlarges the gland tor the device to hold onto the penis. However, after a month of using it about 2 hours a day, I have noticed that the plague seems softer but my penis still has a bend and continues to be short. Will this improve with consistent use?

Dr. Mulhall answers: The suggestion is that the traction device gives the greatest benefit to men with PD who use it for at least 4 hours per day for at least 6 months. You are in a slightly different population as you are using it after plaque incision and grafting. It sounds as if you are more than 6 months after surgery but you have only been using the traction device for a month so continue to use. If after another 5 months you see little change in length or curvature, it is not likely that you will see further improvement after that.

Previous I first noticed my symptoms only about 3 months ago (painful erections, hard nodule under the skin when flaccid) and am currently in the “active” phase of the disease. Is there anything I should or should not be doing during this phase in order to minimize the eventual resulting curvature? It’s only slightly noticeable (approx. 5-10%) and I’d like it to stay that way.
Next I have a slight curvature upward, a slight indentation in the middle of my shaft, and a small hard spot at the base. The hard spot and the pain started in the middle of the shaft, but have moved progressively to the base. Is this common?
