Re: Newly Implanted Story/Questions

Since this thread has solidly departed from its original subject I'll go ahead and add this little story. My oldest son has a very beautiful rottweiler/shepherd mix dog named Maverick. He is by far the most intelligent animal I've ever encountered in my life. He could be half starved and if my son f...

Re: Billing surprise

Ha. I just recently got bills for my spinal fusion as a result of a car wreck. The neurosurgeon was $62,000 and the week hospital stay was $280,000. Out of that our part is a little less than $1,800. The surgeon' bill came out to $7,750 an hour, not bad for an 8 hour day. I have no idea how the hos...

Rods In My Back Not An Issue

You may recall I was out of commission for several weeks following a 9 level spinal fusion with rods and screws hardware. This was the result of an accident that wasn't my fault I'm on my way to being well financially compensated for. Since the bottom of the rods below my lumbar spine are anchored i...

Re: PE and IPP ?

I can’t believe I missed this post initially. I was a lifelong PE poster boy. The famous two pump chump. It cost me a number of return engagements when I was younger and single. I actually wasn’t aware it was an issue for a number of years, I thought all guys were like me. That ended when I stayed o...

Public Speaking Anxiety

I’m scheduled to be the implant patient speaker at my first seminar with a surgeon on the 27th of this month. I did a number of these seminars last year and know that this particular doctor in one of the most prestigious Dallas hospitals has well attended seminars. This doctor is very adept at intro...

Re: implant problems

I recently had a toilet issue of a slightly different nature. Our 2 are elongated. I came home from the hospital nearly 9 weeks ago following my horrid back fusion to find our house all setup for a different guy than I was before I left for the surgery. A walker beside my bed (ain't happenin' darlin...

Re: 3rd nut?

I'll keep saying this until I'm blue in the face. Trying to hide that you are bionic is putting as much or more pressure on yourself than when you worried about not being able to get your dick up. Once we're in bed I'd abruptly stop the momentum and say "there's something I have to tell you. I ...

You can ask your urologist if an implant manufacturer has one available in your region. My implant doctor has given out my phone number before as I speak at seminars for a particular manufacturer.
