Re: Cardiac Clearance - One step closer

The only way to know Dr Eid's surgery schedule is to call his office and ask. The lead time depends on lots of factors like time of year, vacation schedules, etc. You don't need the cardiac clearance to schedule a surgery date, but it's not a confirmed date until the clearance is approved and all th...

Re: Deflate issues

The fluid retention issue is completely normal and is often assumed to be "auto-inflation" of the implant which it is not. It totally resolves over time, weeks not days. On the deflation issue, here's what I found. It was day 4 and I was 3000 miles from Dr Eid. I sat in a hot bath and felt...

Re: Titan Flaccid vs Erect

Your post-op erect length should be very close to your pre-op injection measurement. That's one reason why Dr Eid does the pre-op stretch and injection measurements, so both doctor and patient can see the expected post-op length. It's too soon yet to be concerned about length, need time to recover f...

Re: Titan touch

How hard is it to locate the deflate button after surgery. Not hard, I started cycling on day 4 like you will. Practice a few times with the sample pump draped in a thin & wet wash cloth so you can feel the button with the little nipple on it. The way my pump is oriented I pump with the right a...

Re: What if I am oversized?

And then, if I am really oversized, what is the solution? You could ask about imaging of your pelvic area, ultrasound, or CT scan, or MRI. That might show in detail how the implant is fitting in your body and might show the cylinder folds if you were oversized. Imaging is non-invasive and relativel...

Re: Defective pump revision by dr Andrew Kramer with video, nov 7,2019

Thanks for posting, I just watched the video. It's a relief to see how easy it was to replace just the pump, that's the component that I worry about failing. It looks like he replaced a Genesis pump with another Genesis pump. Did he comment on the Genesis pump compared to the newer Touch pump? And d...

Re: Coloplast Titan pump and other questions

He did say he likes to use the genesis pump in place of the one touch. Any comments on this? The latest model pump is the "Touch", both the Genesis (Release Bar Pump) and One Touch (OTR) are older but maybe still available. You might ask the doctor if you can look at and feel all three pu...
