Linear Shockwave Therapy

Posted 16 August 2016 03:30:45(UTC)

I have just been reading that Sir an Botham has tried this new treatment (Linear Shockwave Treatment) Brand Name "Vogore" developed by the Viagra Company.

Although this is new treatment to me, I was wondering if any bloggers who have had Nerve Sparring Prosatectomy have any feedback on this treatment.

I am over 2 years since i had my operation but the only thing that works for me is Caverject Injections and its not exactly a romantic way to start a sexual experience.

The name of the brand is Vigore not Vogore, it was on the mail on line site yesterday google "vigore and ian botham" and form your own opinions.

Thanks Chris

One man's belief is no substitute for a controlled clinical trial.

Especially someone who may well have been generously reimbursed  - or at least got free treatment - for sharing his story, and being "an ambassador".

Apologies to Sir Ian if he hasn't. But that's how the "health industry" works, and that's how the Daily Mail works - new drugs / treatments which have yet to have full trials and peer review are 'released' via the popular press, so that the unsuspecting public break down the GP's door asking for the treatment, often with some 'star' fronting the story.

It stinks. But that's not to say Vigore is bad. It's to say "we don't yet know".


[added:] I'm no Guardian fan, but their take on the story is rather different to the Sun and the Mail
