Re: Questions to ask immediately before surgery

I did tell mu surgeon that I wanted him to be able to say mine was the best result he'd ever had. I did also request the scrotal incision and I was glad he did that. I would also request the implant you prefer. Usually, the surgeon will do what he thinks best. I ended up with only a little swelling ...

Re: My argument for CX (vs LGX) and a question

It's a tough call for a younger guy.
I personally would opt for the LGX.
The kink and semi-hardness when flaccid bothers me.

I also would guess it could expand more lengthwise.

Re: 5ar inhibitors (Saw Palmetto, Propecia/Finasteride, Rogain, Dutasteride) can casue Venous Leakage

I'm going to go astray on this: I still have all my hair and teeth (big whoop). My wife always says she thinks African American men look good bald. I have a friend who used to raise a cow or 2 and one day, a Mexican guy asked him if he could have some fresh cow manure. He explained that he was going...

Re: Pain at reservoir

I'd bet you found the cause.
Maybe you got some encapsulating around the reservoir.
Maybe gradually try to increase the fluid going it to it?

Re: Any tips from our vetern members on getting implanted

Robert, things are going well.
My wife claims to not like sex every day but I don't bother her on golf days, Tue and Thu.

After you get implanted things get better sexually.
Not like being young, but hell, we aren't young anymore.

Keep us posted on your plans.

Re: Any tips from our vetern members on getting implanted

I don't have experience with the VA.
I do recommend Drs Avila and Bigelow at Ironwood Urology though.
Dr Avila sized me perfectly.
I didn't like his communication skills and his bias against LGX for cylinders 18cm or longer.
I suspect Dr Bigelow might be better in those areas but don't know.

Re: PSA Level Up...

Fred, I think it's smart to get the biopsies. Somehow, I don't think the implant caused the PSA spike. My last PSA was about 5.2 and I scored 3-3 on the Gleason scale after the biopsies. It would have been good to see the history of your PSA tests. When mine started going up more quickly, my uro sus...

Re: erosion of side walls

I can't answer your question, but did the erosion begin as a kink?

Re: Some more questions + concerns

I've always been a risk taker, but when I talked to my surgeon, he inspired confidence in me.
I've said before that the only FT poster whom I saw who had my surgeon almost died from an infection.

Re: Thought on Failures

Sometimes when I fall asleep fully inflated, I leak quite a bit of urine.
Don't know why that is, but I don't like that.
