I have been hanging for roughly 2 months now and am now hanging 10lbs. I have gained about 1/4 of an inch in erect length and although I have not measured flaccid length I know that I have never hung this low. I have used the AFB (Tom Hubbard) hanger because I had all the supplies lying around my home. I have had very few problems with it but am looking into making a Bib hanger in the near future for comparison sake.
Today, for the first time, I noticed a very slight purplish discoloration at the tip of my head, about the size of a dime. Being my off day (I have a 2 day on - 1 day off program consisting of 1) 5 minute hotwrap 2) 20 minutes hangtime 3) 10 minutes to restore circulation/pc flex’s 4) 20 minutes hangtime and 5) 20-30 minute jelq 6) 5 minute hotwrap) I thought to myself that, since this is the first time I have noticed this, it must be a result of 2 days of subsequent hanging and jelqing (the latter which I added to my routine only at the beginning of this week).
Now, upon second inspection, the discolouration has disappeared. I just wanted to get some of your opinions on what may have caused this. I think the biggest problem may have been a result of attaching the hanger too close to the head, causing it to become dark during hanging. I ignored the fact that the head was a darker colour and continued to hang. In retrospect it was probably a bad idea but at the time I saw no problem because I could quickly restore colour (in a matter of seconds) after detaching the hanger.
Tomarrow I will begin attaching the hanger higher up on the shaft (about midway). I have tried this before but felt that I was getting a better stretch if I attached the hanger closer to the head (despite the slight discolouration).
All that said I would like your opinions on whether or not I may have caused any permanent tissue damage.
