My magic IPP

Going on 20 months now. My surgery notes show 10cm inside and 11cm outside. Inflated I have 3/8 inch glans and 3/4 inch deflated. So .375 inch inflated = 1 cm. That is 12 cm outside fully inflated. But using VED I reached 7 inches in about 9 months. Not counting my glans that is 6.625 inches and 16....

Re: Penile Implant Replacement Complications

somehow my post got lost in the original. Just a quick comment. My first surgery was with a preconnected unit. The tubes were much too short so my pump rode high felt like it was stitched in place. AMS 700 LGX. Well after 4 months of fighting to push it down and loosen it up I finally had a second s...

Re: Penile Implant Replacement Complications

Hello All, Short time lurker, first time poster. I am 35 years old and got my first implant installed when I was 23. This was due to a pretty bad car accident with trauma that caused blood flow issues. My first implant surgery was done at Vanderbilt and lasted about 11 years with 90% satisfaction r...

Re: Penile Implant Lifespan Poll

roofer, A study measured a large number of used IPPs. The LGX lasted an average of 29 months the CX lasted 39 months and the Titan 48 months. The LGX grew in length twice as fast as all the others. Apparently all IPPs stretch. Before everyone gets excited. The LGX only grew an average of 1/64 of an ...

Re: Removal of Implant

Hey Fred, You are a true warrior. I understand the emotional toll an IPP takes. Over a lifetime ED took away 1 5/8 inches. But it happened slowly so I didn't care as long as it still worked. Then I went impotent for 2 years drove me crazy so I got this done came home 20% pumped and less than 4 inche...

Re: Implant failed after 2.5 years. How much Dr. Kramer or Dr. Eid charge for a revision?

Dear Brothers, After just 2.5 years of fun, my implant failed today. I'm thinking of biting the bullet and go to Dr. Eid or Dr. Kramer and get it done. Any idea how much do they charge for a revision (all inclusive/out of pocket)? Thanks Matt Matt, Do you have an LGX or a Titan? Eid is Titan exclus...

Re: It points out of my pants

The other week I posted that it took 2 to 3 hours for my LGX to auto inflate. Well I ran the test again and discovered that it did NOT auto inflate all day long. I surmise that bumping the pump by accident during work is what causes it to inflate. So no auto inflation. A second plus when I squeeze o...

Re: Penis deflated but won't drop

I've been told by several docs that keeping it straight up at noon position helps train the cylinders so that later when they soften it sticks out erect more naturally. So yes in time deflated you will tend to point more downward.'The longer the heavier the more downward. Typically when you fully in...

Re: Question on Titan Touch pump?

I don't think this is a Titan exclusive problem. My LGX does the same. If I squeeze out the fluid and then just pop the valve it stays a bit longer. I just squeezed and popped. I'll watch and see how long it takes for the cylinders to round out with fluid again. It took between 2 and 3 hours to aut...
