Re: post Titan pain

Tony, I'm 10 weeks post-Coloplast Titan implant. At your stage I also had pain in the area you mention, but not sure if it was the same. Mine mostly seemed to happen when my clothes pushed against the glans. Since I had a partial inflation, the cylinders were then pushing back against the inside of ...

Re: Question about flaccid state

rlm,

Thanks for the additional input. You've had a lot more time than I to experiment with the equipment and your comments are much appreciated.

Re: Set the surgery date with Dr Eid for May 7th!!

Best of luck, BxGuy. You're in good hands with Dr. Eid. I had mine done with him two months ago on a Friday, and had some concerns on both Saturday and Sunday. Was able to discuss the issues with him directly on his cell phone both days. He also had me drop by the office first thing on Monday mornin...

Re: Question about flaccid state

Thanks for the input, guys. Based in rlm1818's comment, it seems that so far I haven't been able to get all the fluid out of the cylinders when deflating. I have also read about a somewhat rare condition where scar tissue forms a too-tight capsule around the reservoir which can lead to auto-inflatio...

Re: Post-Implant - how long did you take pain meds?

I guess everyone is different on this. In my case, I did take oxycodone as needed, but tried to take as little as possible and still relieve the pain. Before running out, I did switch to ibuprofen and found good pain relief. Recommendation: give it a try at this point. Currently 10 weeks post-op and...

Question about flaccid state

I am now about 10 weeks post-op (Coloplast Titan). At this point my flaccid state is, as expected, longer than it used to be. However, it is also much harder than expected. When deflated, the penis points down to about 5 o'clock and is slightly more flexible than when inflated, but still feels like ...

Re: Compression Problems Still at 11 weeks Post Op

I'm 9 weeks post-op (Coloplast Titan), and have had similar discomfort with sitting. In my case, it mainly seems to be due to underwear/trousers pushing against the glans, but in some positions I still feel a bit of discomfort in the scrotum when the pump is pushed against one of the testicles. One ...

Implant surgery March 8 update

Hi Guys, So I received a PM yesterday from Woodworker57, whose surgery was the same day as mine (March 8). His recovery seems to be pretty much on a normal path, but since I had not posted recently he wanted to know if everything was ok here. I had been meaning to give you guys one final update, but...

Re: My Story

Woodworker, your progress is amazing! I'll post more separately, but have had a bit of a problem with bleeding from the surgical site, and talked to the doc by phone this a.m. Not a serious issue, but I'm suspending the warm baths for a day or two. Still having enough pain that I'm taking a couple o...
