Re: Did you tell your kids about Implant?

Nobody but my wife and my doctors know about my implant. We were empty nesters before I got mine, so the kids don't know about it. My wife was not in favor of the implant (more because of the surgery than the device itself), and as things turned out it never had any kind of effect on her (or on me, ...

Re: How long can you make the penile implants of today last?

What I meant more specifically is once it would fail, does the average person have a chance to get a revision or is that it? It's hard to find studies talking about people with long term penile implants and multiple revisions over decades.[] Since your penile implant eventually failed, would you be...

Re: How long can you make the penile implants of today last?

Like all things medical, it's pretty much a crapshoot. My Titan lasted 12 years, even though it was never used and was inflated only a few times a year. If you're lucky, yours may last 10 or 15 years; if not, it may quit after a few months. But neither of these extremes should affect your decision. ...

Re: Those with titan - did you gain length

I gained a smidgen of length and girth, nothing to write home about. Nothing further was gained following the initial measurement after surgery.

Re: Reservoir pain

About ten years after my Titan surgery I started to experience occasional mild but sharp discomfort at random moments in the area of my reservoir. This went on for a few months and then stopped. I have no clue what was going on, but was not concerned enough to consult my surgeon (Kramer) since he ha...

Re: For those over 1 year with implant: How often do you inflate? Just for use or more often?

I got a Titan in 2008 but never used it due to health issues (see my signature). In the intervening years I inflated it every few months for a couple of minutes and until last September it showed no sign of problems. I have no idea why it quit working, but I nonetheless don't think there is any reas...

No bulge at all here, but at my age who's looking?

Re: For the anti-vaxxers

My wife had zero reaction to either her first or second Pfizer shot. I had no reaction to the first, but felt bad for a couple of hours on the day after my second shot. We have friends who had no, moderate and one bad reaction. We are all different, but that doesn't mean we should hide from vaccines...
