Recovery Story Specifics
Vague stuff can be dangerous when dealing with vulnerable people who really want answers, like how it’s taken so much longer than it should have to disprove the idea everyone with hard flaccid could resolve it through physical therapy and relaxation techniques. Looking at the specifics, the truth is that a very small percentage of people report recovery from this method, and some of the recent recovery stories are shockingly vague.
Recently, someone posted on a different PE forum that after suffering with an injury for a long time, they had finally recovered from resting for awhile and taking supplements, and when someone asked for some specifics about how the recovery played out, they literally responded by saying that they would “get into more detail someday when they had time.” There was another guy who, for awhile, literally went on almost every hard flaccid injury thread to say that he had hard flaccid, had gotten rid of it by treating his head issues, and that everyone who had hard flaccid needed to treat their headed issues. He literally just kept repeating the same few lines, and never got into any specifics about his hard flaccid, head issues, recovery, etc. Not surprisingly, it wasn’t long before he had a ton of positive rep points.
Eventually, people started getting annoyed and he sorted of faded away. We may be left to wonder whether his head issues vanished in a sudden moment, along with his hard flaccid, or if his head issues faded over the course of a few weeks, as his flaccid simultaneously got softer.
We know how many guys there are with penile issues like peyronies disease, the prospect of permanent impotence after prostate cancer surgery, recovering fractured penises, etc. who are terrified about their penises, but show zero signs of hard flaccid. Or guys like me with erectile dysfunction and loss of sexual sensation, who in the beginning were just horrified, but never had hard flaccid.
The medical establishment will at first just say relax to see if it goes away. Then, they may check for blood flow with a doppler, or just prescribe Viagra. Next are injections or an implant.
They won’t do anything else because treatment wouldn’t be any different. I literally begged one urologist to do an MRI, but he wouldn’t, and I don’t think he would have even if I had offered to pay out of pocket. It’s clearly something he never did in these cases, so he wouldn’t be clear on exactly what he would be looking for. He had a waiting room full of patients with clear cut issues he deals with on a daily bases, why bother when it wouldn’t result in any new treatment options?
I’ve felt a sense of camaraderie towards the guys who have hard flaccid since we both got injured from PE and are both dealing with issues without clear cut answers. The uncertainty can be so unbearable for some people, that they are more likely to believe in ideas backed by very vague, loose evidence, or some pretty wacky mental gymnastics, with intimidation and public humiliation on other forums to keep people from asking the tough, but obvious questions.
Fear is powerful, both for guys who are suffering with an injury and for those who don’t want to get injured and get scared reading about it, but by not letting fear tempt us into throwing away our minds and our abilities to think critically, we can make positive progress. A lot of the good people on thundersplace have provided some simple, honest advice and support.
So hopefully anyone who took the time to read all of this or at least part of it sees why we need to ask questions, to think, to look for specifics. Don’t just accept stuff at face value. Ask questions and focus on specific evidence.
