I got peyronie’s disease in my early twenties. It has made my life very difficult. For those who don’t know what it is, it’s a disease/syndrome where plaque builds up on the penis, causing it to bend. My bend was like seventy degrees for the first few years I’ve had it, and, when I finally fell in love with the woman of my dreams (I was a virgin), the first time I had sex was obviously very awkward. However, this woman is the most amazing woman on the planet and she told me how great it felt and how she didn’t even notice the curvature (God bless her). . . It is a problem, though. Most of the time sex is painful for both of us, which has been psychologically devastating for me. To make matters worse, while having sex one day I fractured my penis (which is easy to do when your curvature is as extreme as mine is). After going into surgery, my penis healed but the curvature was worse than before. So now we almost never have sex. I struggle with accepting my condition. I know my wife is unhappy and wants to leave. I’m so sad, and that sadness has zapped my will to be a productive member of society. I had so much potential but I’m constantly depressed everyday. I’ve seen a psychiatrist, but I’ve refrained from taking anti-depressants; though I think may soon. I’m sure some people are laughing reading this but my life is very hard. Besides my wife, no one knows how much pain I keep inside. Anyway, I had some hope about a year ago when I learned about Xiaflex, the first FDA approved “treatment” for the disease. I couldn’t afford it but I went to see a specialist urologist in San Francisco, the closest doctor available who had experience using Xiaflex. The treatment works by injecting a plaque-eating agent into the scar tissue on the penis. I had to go back two times for many painful shots into the penis. All of it was to no avail. I put all my hopes into this treatment helping me fix everything but it didn’t. I don’t know what God’s plan is for me but I sure feel lost… I’m writing today because I have medical bills from my failed attempt at treating my peyronie’s disease. It’s about $2,362 I owe, but I’m on a payment plan of $236 each month. I’m now behind two months on my payment plan. I’ll attach the latest bill I have from them. Every bill is a reminder of the failed treatment and how it only made matters worse by adding to my financial troubles so getting rid of this is my number one goal. I never ask for money or help but I don’t know what else to do. I don’t even know if this will work, but I would be extremely grateful for anyone who had extra money to help pay this off.
