The prescription drug epidemic is changing a lot of standard protocol. When I went for my pre-op appt before implant surgery I was expecting to get my prescriptions for aftercare. When I had previous surgeries I had always gotten them at pre-op so they would be at home when I arrived there following surgery. This time I was told they are not allowed to give put prescriptions until afterwards because people were abusing the system by scheduling surgeries, getting the drugs, and then cancelling the surgery. We live in a whacky world.

I hate the invasion Dustyknox experienced. I see why some regulations are required. I am not sure there is a great solution.
I am 62 and had 30 years of ED. Implanted by Dr. Ronald Anglade in Atlanta on 9/18/17. I have an AMS LGX 18cm w/3cm RTE via a Penoscrotal incision. Currently 5” deflated and 6” inflated, 5.5” girth. Willing to Show & Tell.

Agreed. :(

Maybe the solution is to find a treatment for pain that works without getting you stoned and/or hooked.

Going back to Electronic Records, the fact is that this is an area well regulated, but few clinicians to not know or understand the fine line between what is acceptable and what is wrong. Very concerning...
54 years old, happily married for 30 years to a beautiful & outstanding lady. Onset ED at 49. Finally fixed on 11/08/2017 by the master Dr. Eid with a Titan XL 26, no RTEs! Previously had 3 AMS implants (LGX & CX), all botched.

I would consider reporting this "friend" to the pharmacy board. His inquiry to the database would have been logged, and he had no medical reason to make that inquiry unless he was filling a prescription for you. Seems like a clear and easily proven ethical violation, and probably illegal as well. Unless you want to maintain this friendship I would burn him down.

Nothing is sacred in this electronic world.....he had gall"! If you had wanted him to know you would have told him. If he accessed such info in defiance of protocol he deserves to be reported. This the only way we as citizens have to make an attempt to protect ourselves and the system overall.

Please only answer if you have direct knowledge.


The simple answer is yes, but all look-ups are logged and can be traced and must be justified if challenged.
