Since most men that get an implant have had a prostatectomy.
Usually the reason for the implant.
I think it would be good to have a section about prostatectomy experiences.
People could share the psa levels and Gleason scores and the outcome of surgeries or radiation treatments.
Implanted with colorplast Titan 3 years ago. Davinci radical prostatectomy 6 months ago. Very happy with the outcome of both procedures.

I agree. Sharing stories online and with other survivors has been very encouraging to me.
Born in 1953. Robotic prostectomy in 2013.PSA stable .02. Began Trimix 3 years after surgery. Couldn't be more satisfied.

In 2009 I had radiation treatments for prostate cancer. Shortly thereafter, trimix quit working and I started using a VED. :x My gleason score is still .03 (no signs of cancer). Now I'm very happily implanted! ;)

I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in October of 2003 at the age of 50. The PSA number was low, 1.68 but it had doubled from the previous year. The digital exam indicated some problem and it was enlarged. The needle biopsy found 3 of 8 samples with cancer cells. A bone scan found no issues.

Surgery was performed in January 2004. The gland contained cancer cells but adjacent tissue and lymph nodes taken in surgery were clean. PSA tests ever since have been "0.0"

Various Meds have been taken with succes but I hate the " hangover". I now use a VED.

I will admit that orgasms are different, some can be very intense! BUT, I psychologically miss ejaculation. I apologize if this sounds crude but I miss shooting my load into my wife.

I have never considered an implant. If my wife was high drive I might consider one.
