So today is month two and I have definitely noticed a real, tangible difference. I have now stopped using the rubber bands entirely, and I always just use the tension screw instead. And not only that, but when I first got the device, I could only push the 4″rod down about an inch or so at the most, now I can push it all the way down, which tells me that I have stretched the skin by almost two inches. To clarify, I don’t believe I have actually regrown two inches of new skin, but I have loosened and stretched the skin by quite a bit. So now the DTR device goes on much easier, and there is a lot more to work with. And I can visually see a difference as well, most of the time now I can see the skin bunched up at the ridge of my glans and it appears noticeably looser. But there does not appear to be more skin, just looser skin. I have read on the forums that in the beginning your skin stretches a bit before it actually regrows, which gives the illusion of rapid progress for beginners. So all you new people that are just starting out with this, expect at some point for your progress to slow somewhat. However, know that the progress isn’t really slowing, you are still regrowing skin at the same rate, its just that there is no longer a ton of stretching happening along with the regrowing. In the end its all the same. And I can still see the stretch marks that indicate that the process is working.
As for the cone, well, I wish I had better news, but the cone has been a little slow to catch on. The main problem with it is that I don’t think I have quite enough extra skin yet for it to be super practical and easy to use. It does work, but it doesn’t stay on real well, and its kind of a pain in the ass to get it on and secured. And unlike the DTR, it has tested my patience a little bit. So I have not been consistent with it yet. But don’t get me wrong, I definitely see potential for it in the near future. As soon as I have a little more skin to work with, I believe the cone will become easier to use and I will use it more. Lately I have not been wearing the cone much during the day, but I have been making a consistent effort to sleep with it on. However, occasionally if I get an erection while I am sleeping, the cone makes it uncomfortable enough that I wake up and yank it off. Whereas without the cone, I would have slept right through it. But otherwise, if I don’t get an erection while I sleep, the cone usually stays on all night no matter how much I toss and turn. Whereas during the day, it never seems to stay on in my pants very well, sometimes just the act of sitting down will make it pop off. I have looked at the other retaining options to see if something out there might be better and I haven’t really been compelled to try anything else. They all kind of look the same in terms of how they would work on a penis in the early stages of restoring. So I’m just going stay with what I have and keep using it, and eventually it will get easier.
In other news, I am so happy to report that a family member contacted me the other day about restoration. This pleases me to no end. I have not hidden my restoration from my family, but I have also not talked about it or promoted it with them as much as I do with my friends. I told a few select family members and have sort of let the grapevine do its work. I figured if family members were interested, they would reach out to me, and fortunately they have. I’m sure at some point I will really start hammering them with info once it gets more comfortable. But in the meantime, if you are family, and you are reading this, and you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I will fill you so full of information it will make your head spin. And this goes for anyone else for that matter. I know a lot and am not shy about explaining the process in detail.
And lastly, if you are a male, and you are circumcised, and you are not restoring your foreskin, then what the hell are you waiting for?!?! Start changing your life TODAY.
