A small percentage of patients have reported a history of having a prior short term episode of Peyronie’s disease which corrected itself, only to come back months to years later with a plaque which does not correct itself. It does appear that repetitive injury may result in the worsening of the process resulting in a deformity which may then require more definitive treatment. Interestingly, patients who have had improvement as a result of intralesional verapamil injections have not been noted to have a recurrence with up to 15 years of follow-up.

Previous I’ve had Peyronie’s disease for about 6 years. I can still get adequate erections and achieve intromission. However, there appears to be loss of sensation on one side of the penis which makes it difficult to reach orgasm, causing frustration for me and my partner. Could this be treated and/or reversed?
Next In your opinion, what is the best treatment to prevent fibrosis from spreading around the tunica or into the vascular tissue for a Peyronie’s disease patient?
