One Story of Vacuum Therapy to Regain Lost Elasticity/Length/Girth

Postby Lost Sheep » Fri Feb 24, 2017 4:10 pm

September 2016 Sildenafil (Viagra), Vardenafil (Levitra) and Tadalafil (Cialis) had lost their effectiveness, able to induce an erection, but unable to maintain it. Coitus-capable erections had been gone for a year. This was the last of full-size erections and coitus-capable erections had been gone for a year.

September 10, I photographed the last of my full-size erections, a 5.25" drug-enhanced erection.

Dec 7 (IIRC), I began a protocol of Vacuum Therapy described in the Sellers-Dineen paper I have posted before. It is intended to rehabilitate the penis, restoring elasticity lost over a few years of post-prostatectomy impotence. I figured it could not hurt to try it.

December 13, I photographed a 5 1/4" vacuum-induced erection. I should have photographed one earlier, but did not think of it and getting the best erection took some practice anyway.

A few days later, I achieved a 6 1/2" vacuum-induced erection. Inside the vacuum container, I observed my penis had an hourglass shape (the proximal portion of the shaft being smaller diameter than the distal portion). After releaing the vacuum I observed a mild edema (doughnut effect), but no petechiai or other permanent effect. Discontinuing the protocol for two days resolved the edema and I adjusted maximum vacuum to stay below the level that threatened injury or produced the hourglass shape.

Feb 23, 6 1/4" vacuum-induced erections are commonly achievable and 6 3/8" if I vacuum to the extreme of my willingness. Stretching of the skin on the penile shaft has given me a slight turtle-neck effect and occasional minimal edema, but I have never had petechial mottling or any such vacuum effects.

I wish I had measured my erection length properly when I was in my 20's. That would be a handy benchmark against which to compare what I may have in the future. What's past is past, though and now I have better records to document my journey.

I hope my sharing this information is helpful to others.

I am totally amazed at your length gain due to pumping. Congratulations

I started pumping 7 years ago and after a year or so, I saw no meaningful gain in length although I did achieve an additional 1/4 inch in girth. At this point, I purchased an extender which I used about three hours a day in addition to the pump. After five years, I had gained about an inch of length and girth.

Thanks for sharing your story.

While gaining length is said by most authorities on the subject to be impossible, RESTORING length lost to medium-term absence of erections is possible. This is what I think I managed to do. I do not expect to gain much more, if any length after this, but I will continue the protocol until my surgery as it also promises to make the surgeon's insertion off the implant easier, recovery easier as well as size retention.

I REALLY wish I had documented my size in my 20's and over the years as E.D. progressed. It would have given me a proper benchmark for comparison

lol the length of your penis only depends on how far you can push the ruler into your gut, before it breaks and you stab yourself :lol:
