I had pain from my tubing for a year. Bad enough sometimes I could not take it any more and had to sit down in the floor in the middle of a Target store. I ate Advils all the time from the pain. Sorry about your implant Larry.

Alibaba,
I'm glad my pain is not as bad as you had. It is more of an ache. Where the scrotum and penis meet, I can feel a lump, like a piece of tubing, and the release valve is immediately below that, so very high in the scrotum. I am starting to wonder, now that I am groping around trying to figure out what hurts, I wonder if the whole thing, release and bulb, has been turned around. I guess, since the button is still on the front, that's not possible. But maybe a part of the tubing is looped up or something? I have a call in to the doctor to ask for an appointment. I don't think there is an infection. It's always felt like this. The scrotum over the bulb used to hurt like hell when I was first squeezing it and the doctor said that would go away as the scrotum got tougher, and it did go away. But this ache over the penis/scrotum junction, and over the release button hasn't gone away.

Michael,

As you describe it, very similar to my situation. The "lump" at the peno-scrotal junction, at least on my case, is where the crimping of the tubing healed stuck to the cavernosa. That is why it produces a constant discomfort, and as I pump, it turns into pain; the more I pump, the stronger the pain. It is then that the tubing location can be seen very pronounced.

Let me see if i can figure out how to post a photo.

This is how it looks from the left side, but it basically goes all the way to the bottom of the shaft, where the crimping joint is located.

Plumber,
I just got a call back from the urology department: my urologist/surgeon is on leave of absence until the end of the year! And there is no other urologist at that location! So they are going to give the question to the physician's assistant and ask if she knows what to tell me (meaning "come in and let me look" or "the tubes being pulled forward and causing discomfort will eventually go away as that area toughens" or whatever the response is). They put 4 rear extenders on, and I think when the rear gets inflated it pushes the tubing forward beyond the scrotum and towards the penis. Your picture helped a lot. I don't see that, but I do feel a ridge all the way around that only becomes palpable when I try for maximum inflation. Before then, the ridge is behind the back of the penis within my body. I spent hours inflating and deflating today trying to figure it out. Underneath, the tubes go down into the scrotum until, again, I try for maximum inflation, then they start to go into the base of the penis, which hurts, or rather, aches.

By the way, what is the crimping joint? I guess I better look at the schematics of the AMS implant online to see what that ridge is...

The crimping point in about in the middle bottom of the shaft, where the shaft ends and the scrotal sac starts. The whole tubing is stuck to the left cavernosa from under my finger is, and wraps it to the middle of its bottom, and runs down stuck the shaft until it moves to the pump.

Sorry for not answering one of your questions! The crimping is the adapter used to joint the tubing from the reservoir to the pump. AMS needs a tool to do it, Titan is done manually.

I have an appointment with another urologist on Thursday 9/21/17 regarding the pain where the penis joins the scrotum. Not that I expect him to criticize my first urologist, but I am going to ask
1. Is 3 inches normal after you were using a vacuum pump before surgery and thought you had 5.5 inches?
2. Is it reasonable to insert a 15 cm implant and add 4 rear tip extenders, leaving 8 cm in front of the hoses (in the penis) and 11 cm behind the hoses?
3. Is that why the hoses are pushing forward all the time and making the penis fold hurt?

I'll let you know what the new doctor says is causing the pain at the fold over point. I assume it is the hoses pushing forward, but we'll see. My regular urologist/surgeon is on a leave of absence until the end of the year. The nurses say they do not know why. That seems unlikely.
