Re: Uro Warns Me about Getting Implants.. I'm Confused

Fire the guy and find a new doctor. If you have to fight a doctor to get treatment then it is the wrong doctor. I had very good luck with my urologists.
However, for my wife we replaced a cardiologist and an orthopedic surgeon.
If we had it to do over again we would do the same thing.

Re: Dr. Lentz at Duke

Hi Tom Dr. Aaron Lentz put a Coloplast Titan in me Jan 2015. In my case I did have quite a bit of swelling at first. It started going down rapidly after a couple of days. At the time I saw him I think he was doing about 130 procedures a year. He was scheduled for 6 of them across a 2 day period when...

Re: Looking for a Dr in NC, what questions do I ask

I forgot to mention, if you don't want to loose size start using a vacuum pump (VED) daily. The main reason size is lost is from atrophy and the atrophy is caused by a lack of blood flow to the penis. I had real bad ED for 5 years. The insurance company wouldn't pay for an implant. During that 5 yea...

Re: Looking for a Dr in NC, what questions do I ask

It's a bit of a drive for you but I saw a Dr Aaron Lentz at Duke Raleigh. I have had zero problems. He installed my implant 4 years ago this month. He does in excess of a 120 implants a year. It is also my understanding that he is a doctor that fixes mistakes that other doctors make. If you go on th...

Re: Rate your implant 1-10 & why

I rate mine a 10. I was implanted a little over 3 years ago. Prior to the implant nothing worked. Now I can have an erection anytime I want and for as long as I want. Sensitivity got better. I did not loose any length at all. It did take a few months to get all the length back. I used a VED daily fo...

Re: Small cox issue

In my opinion it is too early to get upset about your size. It took me a full year to get to my maximum size. That was after I had been using a VED shortly after my prostatectomy up until I got the implant. So even if you have doing all of the pre-op items it still takes time

Re: Is there size loss in the fully erect penis after getting an implant?

Assuming the doctor doesn't screw up there is no size loss because of an implant. The size loss is a result of atrophy that sets in when the penis doesn't get blood flow because of the absence of erections. To combat this you should use a vacuum erectile device (VED). If you can't afford a medical g...

Re: How long does it take to go from completely flaccid to fully erect with an implant?

I just timed myself and it took me 35 seconds.

Re: Length ??

Based upon research I have done and conversations with a urologist, The primary reason for length loss is atrophy. The atrophy is a result of insufficient blood flow to the penis. This is one of the reasons you should be pumping to the max on a daily basis. From the time of my prostatectomy up to wh...
