Re: Implant pointing sideways

mine did veer to the left slightly. When inflating I would pull it to the right and now it is mostly corrected. You wont hurt anything by doing this.

Re: Funny Question

agree with Mike123. My flaccid is larger now and harder, but as he said, it's not necessarily a bad thing. My implant always has some residual saline in it, even when I squeeze most of it out when deflating. I get a slow "flowback" of saline. It's not an erection, just a semi, I guess. Uri...

Re: Insane surgery cost

my total charges allowed by insurance was about $20k. Rochester, NY. I find the charges Ive seen above very surprising.
