So far the only problem is leaking urine from the catheter at the penis. It wets the dressing so I've had to reinstall some dressing myself.

Thanks for all your good wishes!
updated: 70 y.o., implanted with titan nov. 3 by Dr. Brady in orlando to correct peyronies. 20 cm with 3 cm RTEs. due to the severity of the peyronies, some internal excisions were made scrotally, recovery will probably take a little longer.

My surgery went very well. I was kept overnight in the hospital so that they could remove the catheter and fluid drain in the morning. Dr. Perry saw me before discharge. He had the nurse remove the bandages and then he deflated and inflated the prothesis and showed me how to do that. He left the penis inflated. I have a follow up with him on 11/21.

Pain has been minimal. Since home I only take Aleve or Extra Strength Tylenol. I had minimal bruising. Am a bit sore and am off and am slightly aware of the prothesis components in my scrotum. I have done some inflating and deflating rounds. Dr. Perry told me to several times daily place my fingers on the pump mechanism in my scrotum and gently pull it down to keep it in the bottom area of the scrotum.

I will try to post some photos here but am having trouble with them being accepted due to size of file. They are only each about 300 KB jpegs.

Looking good man!!!

If you're taking them on your phone you should be able to drop the resolution in camera settings or resize them afterwards.

Glad you're healing well!!!

Thanks. I did resize them on the computer but they still weren't small enough. I will take your tip and resize on phone setting before I take the photos.

Yesterday was my surgery followup appointment with Dr. Perry. He examined me and stated that the healing was looking good. He deflated me slightly. He confirmed that I understood how to inflate and deflate and stated that I could do that daily. He also said I should not have sex with the prothesis for at least another two weeks.

My penis is still a bit sore and very slightly swollen. I don't feel the reservoir in my abdomen, I am aware of the pump in my scrotum and sometimes it is uncomfortable when I sit down. All of that is lessening with time.

He said that he had installed 18cm cylinders with 2cm rear tip extenders for a total length of 20cm.

I find that the inflation and deflation of the cylinders is an easy process. Inflation makes my scrotum sore due to the pressing on the pump. This soreness also is decreasing.

Visible is my Prince Albert Piercing, I reinserted one of my rings prior to the doctor visit. In this photo I am partially inflated and the rigidity is more than adequate for an erection with my ring included.

I don't know if I answered your question or not. Dr. Perry did do an infrapubic incision vertical.

It is healing very well. They glued the incision closed.

TomW46 - how are you doing with your recovery?


I'm not a happy camper. I was activated at 6 weeks (3 days ago). I can pump it up now but I can't deflate the damn thing. The pump is high and I can't get hold of both sides of the valve at the same time because it is somehow connected to my right ball. And, when I do try to squeeze it is painful. After a few minutes trying I hit my pain limit and have to stop trying. Did you get a Titan or an AMS?

I have AMS700LGX 11 weeks now. It was only 2 weeks ago that I started to get it working, holding the gizmo still and squeezing the bulb. Uro demonstrated on me: push AMS to one side against scrotum, hold tubes on top (not too hard as fluid comes thru there) and give bulb hard squeeze. Pause while it refills, then pump again. After ten pumps my scrotum and thumb are sore. Take a rest, then do it again, then rest and repeat.
Ask uro for model implant so you totally get the feel of it. Diagrams and videos didn’t help me.
