Comment from: MB67, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: December 15

I've had Peyronie's disease for about 2 years now. It initially started out as just very painful when I got an erection. It quickly progressed to an indentation occurring right at the base of my penis which made my penis lean to the left when erect. Gradually the indentation progressed to where it went pretty much all the way around the shaft of my penis when I was erect. My erection doesn't lean like it did initially but I have lost over 2 inches in length and over 1 inch in girth when I'm erect. The indentation isn't very noticeable as it occurs so far down the shaft and up close to my body. It just looks like I have a tiny penis now. It used to be pretty much average in size I always thought, but not now. My urologist told me there wasn't much I could do about it. As of right now, other than being so small, it works just fine and it doesn't hurt. There's just not as much of it as there used to be. My wife has been supportive and a good sport about it all though. That helps a lot.
