Don't get an implant that you don't need.

At two weeks, you may continue to have a good amount of swelling in your scrotum and other areas of your genital region. Positioning your penis to the left or right while wearing tight underwear could minimize the visual impact. If you can tolerate it point your penis upwards and secure with the und...

The script said it was for pain, as needed up to 4x per day. Dr. Hakky did my original implant and I did not receive this then. The info sheet I received from t...
