Re: question, or issue with AMS 700

Yep, if mine doesn't want to inflate, I also press the deflate button and it changes the setting.

Re: With Penile scrotal how soon can be sex

I guess it's best to follow doctor's orders.
My doc said 4 weeks.
I was ready sooner, but didn't push it.

Re: Strained in the abdominal area/groin...

Good point, early on you really can't exert yourself.
My son is restoring his 76 Blazer and I picked up his front fender.
That was several weeks post-op, and I really got a pain down there.
It did go away pretty fast.

Golf has never given me a problem there.

Re: Young man in 30s from Asia - 2 questions

Would you mind substantiating your statement that longer cylinders will provide more girth.
I've never seen that.

I just noticed your chart about the Titan.
I didn't know that.
I don't find that with AMS.

Re: Strained in the abdominal area/groin...

I've had similar problems when straining on occasion. It feels like what I'd guess a hernia feels like.
I guess it's where they shoved the reservoir into the abdomen from the groin.
I still feel it sometimes even after nearly 8 months post-op.
It always goes away quickly for me.

Re: Being a Grower and the Penile Stretch Test

Good point, I was wondering about that. Also Peyronies would play a part in that.
It would be interesting to know about pre-existing conditions.

I had none.

Re: Being a Grower and the Penile Stretch Test

As for risk of infection, I was told to use some kind of anti-bacterial stuff for some time prior to surgery. The instructions I was given said to not use it on the scrotum. WTF? I used it there anyway since it seemed moronic not to. Doc said that was fine, but his office even cited that. Maybe the ...

Re: Being a Grower and the Penile Stretch Test

Dr Karpman may be a fine surgeon, but saying a stretch test is about what you should expect sounds like a cover your ass statement. As I understand it, and can attest, the only measurement that counts is when you're unconscious and the surgeon uses the measuring rods. Why some surgeons short you by ...

Re: Anyone else here have hard spots (tubing connections) at base of penis ? If so....

I've always wondered why my doc decided to use 3.5cm RTEs on me. I wondered if it would make it easier for him to get a straight shot out of the cylinders to the pump. I just revisited the AMS surgical procedures and believe I found the reason. I'll try to attach the write-up on it: Use of RTEs.png...
