I've been a member on the site for a while now (19 Nov) and it occurred to me that I haven't done a intro.

Around about 2004 my Erectile Dysfunction which was an on and off problem became a problem that I sought medical care. I was first put on Levitra then later Viagra as time went along the pills became less and less effective until I got to a point that all I got out of taking them was a massive headache. After about a year of basically doing nothing as I was going through a divorce I met my current wife and I continued to struggle with the Viagra and one urologist put me on Testosterone topical treatments. Then along comes the whole T is bad and my primary care doctor took me off it and now instead of an on again off again ED with Viagra I was back to the crushing headaches. Back to the Urology Clinic and I opted for Alprostadil injections. I really liked them for the price of little pin prick a nice hard on.
I was on it for over a year when one time I Injected and nothing happened but a pain in my dick. I blamed bad placement of the needle, as the next time a nice hard on again. The while I was recovering from foot surgery I noticed my basically straight dick had a curve and to me it seemed shorter. Thinking it was just I was fatter due to inactivity I didn't give another thought until my wife mentioned it and I called the urology clinic and was told that I had Peyronie's Disease. The Doctor asked if I had thought about an implant as it would fix both issues not being one to jump to the knife I took the other option of let's wait and try Pentoxifylline. Now 3 months later I had my first follow up and too me the curve is getting worse with a curve up which isn't so bad but the curve to the right side is. The Urologist wants to wait until I hit the year mark and wants me to take pictures from time to time to mark the curve. But said the plaque (scar tissue) was about a centimeter in size and could be larger as it as right at the base. He also said it looks like I may be a candidate for surgery. Any this site is awesome I have learned so much about, surgery, ED, PD and I'm glad there is a peer support group
