Shrinking penis after surgery and radiation

I tried all the oral medications too with no results.
An acquaintance of mine suggested I try an injectable medication called trimix that works well for him. The thought of injecting my penis sounded painful but was pleasantly surprised when I barely felt it. The next time I used it I didn’t feel the injection at all.
The only problem is it has to be prepared at a sterile compounding pharmacy which makes them expensive and are not usually covered by insurance.

Please correct me if I'm mistaken but the stretching device you referred to last year, I thought any length gained was as a result of straightening any curvature that may exist from Peyronie’s Disease or another condition.
If any length is gained I don't believe is long lasting.
Good luck @rcs,
Jake

You're correct @jakedduck1, the RestoreX device was originally developed to treat penile curvature due to Peyronie's disease. It works by applying gentle, dynamic pressure to stretch and shape the penis. The length gain is in part due to curvature correction. Research is now being conducted to see if the same approach could be used to improve penile form and functioning after prostate cancer surgery. Here's an article about a preliminary study:
