Difficult lesson learned....UPDATE

Postby bbb2.5 » Sun Aug 27, 2017 9:00 am

Hey Guy... I was implanted on June 27 th. My surgery went well with no problems what so ever. No swelling , no busing. Could not have ask for it to have been any better. Prior to my surgery I had an ongoing going problem with really painful hemorrhoids. Last year I even had minor surgery done to remove a few. Well when they flared up again this time I just endured the pain, and went forward with my implant. Well the hemorrhoids began to hurt even worse after my surgery. I went to a different Gastro doctor this time. My previous one did not accept my new insurance. He told me he could remove them with no problem. Schedule my minor procedure for Aug 11th. Everything went great until a week after the surgery to remove the hemorrhoids. I got an infection, my butt area is fine, however the infection has invaded my groin area. With all that freshly healing tissue from my implant.
Turns out that my Gastro surgeon actually went inside my anus to explore a little, looking for any exterior hemorrhoids. Yes, he was well aware that I had just received my implant on June 27.
My Urologist believes that because I was not put on antibiotics after my Hemorrhoid surgery was the reason for the infection to occur. I have a compromised immune system.
So now here I am with a severely infected groin area. My scrotum is the size of a soft ball and my dick is swollen as well. I have been on high does of antibiotics for a week now. I can not feel any of my pump at all now. Going in Monday for ultrasound and assessment with my urologist again.....

My hard lesson was that I should have just dealt with the pain of my hemorrhoids longer and none of this would have happened. ( if you had had sever hemorrhoids before, you know the pain they can cause) I bad call on my part, but at the same time was not aware the gastro doctor was going inside either.

Just wanted to share what I am now going through after my very successful Implant surgery... :( :( :(

Bad call on your part??? What about bad call on the part of the doctor taking care of your hemorrhoids? My dentist even has me take precautions for anything but cleanings. I have had my knee cap joints replaced a couple of years ago and have an implant so even dentist is cautious.

I believe that there is plenty of poor judgement to go around and a lot of it isn't yours.

bbb- im in a similar boat - not hemmeroids but have been dealing with a series of infections in my groin area - not related to my implant but to my turp surgery which I had a couple of months before my implant. Long story short, getting my epididymis removed from me right nut on Tuesday. Doc says recovery will be very similar to my implant surgery. (he's also moving/replacing my problematic pump since he'll be in there anyway). I'm looking forward to getting it done - it's been several months of hell. I feel for you man. Best wishes.

If I have understood well, if you have an infection in any part of the body, for example in the mouth, could be any problem with the implant?

I think I would be finding a new Gastro, one that knows about infection. I have to premedicate before I go to the denist also even for a cleaning.

I am glad Dr Hakky and my ortho for my hip are pro antibotic. My orth wants me healed from the implant before he does my other hip. It is tentitive for Nov

I went to the dentist with a tooth ache. He found nothing but gave me a antibiotic to keep on hand in case it was to flair up.

I have hemorrhoid, so I know the pain you speak of. About ten years ago, I was talking to I guy I work with who had them too. He told me what he did to help remedy it. And that is I take a fiber capsule every day. I haven't had a flare up since I started doing this. They are still there, they just don't flare up and cause pain. The fiber keeps you regular so you don't have to strain to pinch a loaf. :lol:
