Re: SECURITY

I read an article some weeks back about the scanners the TSA currently uses in the US. According to the article all the old scanners that showed details have been replaced. The current ones have a white screen with an outline of a body. If you trip the scanner the agent see's an area on the drawing ...

Re: Losing Hope | 4wk post op | Need advice please!

Friend I am sorry to hear about your trouble. I understand your feelings in that many other have gone through this with great results on the first surgery and you have had the last 2 with problems both times. But the thing is we can't change that. So we do the best we can with what we have. In many ...

Re: Post op... not working... stuck valve?

It varies from doctor to doctor and person to person. Infection is a really bad deal as many doctors just remove and flush and do not replace. Then there is a 6 month wait before another attempt can be made. This usually results in loss of size. Some will place a malleable in to help with size loss ...

Re: Pain level

My pain level after surgery was a 3-4. I was over night in the hospital and took no pain meds. Took Tylenol for the ride to the hotel room and alternated Tylenol and Motrin until I flew back home. I did not have Peyronie's but I do off road travel in a 4 wheel drive SUV. These are long days bouncing...

Re: Impact of doctor on implant size?

Ask to speak to one or more of your doctors implant patient's and ask them if and how much they lost. Hopefully you will get some positive reports. Yes, doctors do make a difference. High volume doctors are a good place to start. Perito uses infra pubic approach with tubes connecting on the top. Dos...

Re: cylinder problem

Both of my cylinders went to the left. This happened when I had a pump problem and the left cylinder would inflate and the right one would not until after the left was fully inflated. It is a bit more than that as the left tip is low at 4 o'clock and the right tip is close to the center at 10. I hav...

Re: Pre-Op advice / Post-Op planning

1) There is a study most likely in the General forum in the Documents thread about VED stretching prior to implant. I used this for over 2 months prior but others have done this longer. I would add that I did also stretch by pulling my glands straight forward, to each side, and down and up to my bel...

Re: Update and Question/Issue

The AMS rep gave me a pump reset not on the dvd that helped with another problem I had so I would recommend trying those first. After that problem was mostly corrected sometimes it would take 2 or 3 pumps to get the pop. I did repeat the AMS rep fix several times over a period of time. Sometimes the...

Re: Update and Question/Issue

If it doesn't pop with the first squeeze of the bulb squeeze a second time and see if it pops then. That happened to me a lot for a long time but after a year very rarely. You can also call your AMS rep. Should have a number in your paperwork. They have resets not on the DVD in your packet and that ...
