Re: Pain on left side of groin/buttox when inflating implant

Do you have a local uro you can see? Don't know your location so I don't know how difficult it is to get back to see your implant surgeon.

Re: More than 50 pumps and minimal inflation?

I have the typical AMS pump. The whole bar is flexible. Squeezing on the ends loosens up the fit of the release button. Jamie from AMS described how to do it. It was only a problem when the pump was new and stiff. Works flawless this past year. That was in my DVD in my AMS packet as well. That DVD ...

Re: Has anyone had to use a lockout method?

My dvd said not to push the deflate button and squeeze the bulb at the same time. That is a rule folks should stick by. Under some conditions after speaking with an AMS rep or other professional to make sure you will not damage something someone might be told to pump the bulb while holding the defla...

Re: More than 50 pumps and minimal inflation?

When the bulb has trouble filling, most times just stays flat, push the deflate button and usually the bulb will fill. You might go ahead and do a full deflate and squeeze your shaft and feel for fluid going back in the reservoir and start over. For a while I would do a deflate before starting to cy...

Re: Why? Not if but when. Nagging doubts.

On your other thread members talked about a study on number of implants a year vs. reoperation rates. There is another study I do not have that addressed size loss. What I took from that study is that med school teaches docs to error on the short side to avoid the possibility of erosion. Like the ol...

Re: Problems deflating

Keep trying. You may have to hold the deflate button down for it to work. Mine did that sometimes. I have an AMS LGX with MS pump. What do you have?

Re: Rear Tip Extender Sling?

As the corpora goes down into your body it bends a bit or spreads. Make a bit of a curve so to speak. We all are different and some go deeper and or bend more than others. But If for some reason the RTE breaks through the corpora and out where it should not a sling may be used to repair this. If yo...

If fully deflated, will it maintain some rigidity FYI, I have an LGX Just a bit of info I have noticed with my LGX. I have...

Re: Using other than a world renowned surgeon

Thanks so far. This is the kind of responses I’d hoped for, stuff to make me think. It’s like the old saying...”you don’t know what you don’t know.” I’m curious if there’s a thread or location on this site that is like the ultimate repository for questions a guy ought to ask the surgeon. Obviously ...
