Has anyone experienced any damage to their penis from using Trimix or other injectables?

Yes it is a known risk and some have reported having that issue here. I have no noticeable damage. However I figure the well over a thousand needle sticks must have caused some damage from the trauma of the needle alone. I believe some meds are more likely to cause damage than others.

I have a bruise on the right side of my shaft that has not gone away in over 4 years. After all the bruising healed from my implant it was still there. Now my hair has grown and covered it up.

Can anyone explain why/how the injection ingredients cause damage?
I'm worried that what I've been prescribed might make things worse in the long term - thinking of changing to Caverject if so.

Well stabbing any tissue creates a wound, and would healing creates scars.

Plus by urologist told me the other ingredients in trimix - the phen and papaverine - are acidic and more likely to cause damage than the PGE1. If you can use just PGE1 (which i think is caverject) then you might be less likely to get damage.

But I'm not a doctor nor an expert.
44, ED problems began around age 28 when I was on finasteride for hair loss, and also got circumcised so I lost a lot of sensation. Pills gave me bad headaches and other side effects. Now using trimix 30/1/20. So far so good.

Before my first implant they tried Caverject and I really believe that it traumatized the penis to where it just did not feel right, was bruised all the time and I thought it was starting to give a curve on it. That is when I decided I wanted an implant, and it was the best move I could have ever made. First implant lasted fifteen wonderful years, since then I am on my second revision. First revision I got a bad pump lasted only ten months, but it was giving problems from the start. Now I am on my second revision and the Urologists done a great job. I don't think anybody could have done it any better. Feels really natural. But Caverject was not for me, and I would not recommend it to nobody.

Well I've been using Edex or mono-mix for 10 years. It still works great and has caused no known issues. I do recommend injections but they aren't for everyone. The thought of having 3 surgeries on my dick for an implant isn't appealing, especially when the injections work so well for me and are so inexpensive.

I personally just do gentle and long traction just about every day with a suction based rod extender.
This is to treat my peyronie's, and to enlarge my penis over time. Additionally i believe this mitigates the curvature issues of the injection trauma.

I also only use pge-1 because my Dr said that it's safer than trimix. That it is the other ingredients in trimix that cause scarring.

Having injected PGE-1 for 5 years ( approximately 400 needle stabs ) have not noticed any damage. The dosage has remained the same and as long as it works...gonna stick ( no pun intended ) with it. if it ever fails my GF will have to play with a soft dick. Implant is not in my future at my age.
Age 80 good health. Radiation prostate 28 hits 4 years ago with 6 months of horrible ADT. Good recovery and ED worse.
Can't tolerate oral drugs but 5 years of Alprostadil 40mcg/ml 18 units is a miracle for 3 hours. Young GF is happy!!

I've been using Trimix for close to 4 years and haven't seen any damage. I use a traction device followed by pumping every day so that might help ward off damage too.
