Does Jelquing or Stretching Damage Veins?
I posted the following message as part of my recent Penile Thrombosis thread, but no one has responded, and the thread is pretty buried. I’d sure like to get some opinions on causes of Vein Thrombosis.
Here is my post…
“I seem to be healing pretty well, but in reading all the links about thrombosed penile veins and various members suggestions, I have some additional questions:
One comment was, thrombosis is caused by stretching, and the person who stated that said he would do no more stretching.
Isn’t Jelquing stretching? Isn’t hanging stretching as well? Why is manual stretching a bad thing leading to thrombosis, while hanging 25 lbs off the end of my dick seems to be alright?
Is it the roller pressure against the vein while using the PowerJelq that causes the thrombosis?
I suppose in all this, the red flags did not go off for me since I had no idea a vein would feel that way. I thought it was a ligament that was getting stronger in some way…part of normal PE development. Makes this whole thing of PE a bit scary, as there is so much research that needs to be done to avoid injury, and if you don’t know the questions to ask, you don’t ask them…until it may be too late.
Along with that, there are as many opinions on here as there are members, and whereas some people swear by a certain routine, others will declare that same routine is a waste of time, or even dangerous.
I’ll be back PEing in the next few days, taking it easy at first and paying attention to that vein, but all the time wondering if I am doing unseen damage elsewhere”.
As a follow-up, I saw my doctor today, and he verified that indeed I have vein thrombosis. He advised NO treatment, rather than letting it rest.
As an aside, I told him about this website, and he seemed quite interested…however he asked if the penises were deformed or ugly looking after gaining inches….and I was eager to tell him that they were for the most part quite handsome to look at.
I think I’ll give him the URL of Thundersplace so he can recommend it to his penially (is that a word?) challenged patients.
Thanks to all…
