Re: Survey - 2nd round? Anyone else get contacted?

As stated before, I qualified for the survey, and responded. And after a few days this hit my funny bone... The implant can be inflated from an app on an iPhone. Does that mean it would be an iDick? Would that add another category to the self declaration of implanted dicks- bionic and digital? I wo...

Re: Are Private Practice Surgeons better than Hospital-Employed ones?

My surgeon (in fact who is also my urologist) is not a "hospital-employed" surgeon but rather hospital-affiliated. He has his private practice in Plano and sees both men and women for urological issues, but also does complex penile reconstruction and surgeries (98% above his peers based on...

Re: Future Implants

I can't give away too much info but I was recruited for a survey on implants. A company is designing an implant that will incorporate a mechanical pump operated via a smart phone app or a key fob device. Box implanted in abdominal pad, wireless charging, versions with better functions possible. The...

Re: Survey - 2nd round? Anyone else get contacted?

I could not remember one from when I took it last week but at the bottom of the e-mail is one for if it went to the wrong addy. Did you do the one almost 2 years ago? No, I've only had my implant for about 15 months and I hadn't been looking for a solution to my problems until about four months pri...

Re: Survey - 2nd round? Anyone else get contacted?

I did one of these aprox. 2 years ago. And I signed up for one back a few months ago and was not contacted them. I did get contacted Julia Worthen by e-mail on 1-14 for an online survey. However the one I did almost 2 years ago was a phone interview and as I understand the one a few months ago was ...

Survey - 2nd round? Anyone else get contacted?

I was passed by on the first go around for the ED survey a month or so ago and was never even contacted. Some others said they too had not been contacted although I can't be sure since the thread was deleted or has slipped into oblivion and I can't find it. Has anyone who missed the first round of s...

Re: Shaving Scrotum

I continually find it challenging to shave my scrotum with pump. Any tips...certain shaving cream, razor etc that works better than others? Nothing special but an *EXTREMELY LIGHT TOUCH* is needed and keep a styptic pencil on standby because you will nick yourself and it tends to bleed a bit more t...

Re: Pump fluid level

You state that this has been constant, maybe not a leak but lack off adequate fluid? I suggest that you request your surgical notes. This will provide the details of both cylinder size and the reservoir size and how many CC of saline was added. Good Luck! For an example, my surgical notes detailing...

Re: Revision Fitted With Larger Device

FMLFML85, What would be the advantage in doing that? That it would provide greater girth than the smaller length Titan sizes? You can take a big thing and make it as small as a smaller thing, but then you just have a thing that's now the same size as the initially smaller thing. I don't understand....

Re: Insane surgery cost

I had mine done on 10/28/19 by a urologist/surgeon in Texas (not exactly high volume as he also has a full practice). The hospital was Baylor Scott & White in Frisco TX, my insurance is BCBS of Illinois and total billed to insurance was $62,892.50 and Blue Cross paid out after contractual reduct...
