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 ...

Re: Anyone take out a personal or medical loan to pay for implant?

I am still waiting for insurance pre-authorization. My concern about self-paying is not the initial cost, but my policy (and most) will not cover complications from non covered procedures. What if there is an infection or it comes through the skin? You could be paying the rest of your life. I am no...

Re: Reservoir Question

I know mine is there. I had pena scrotal surgery and everything is under the bottom of my penis in my scrotum. Mine is not uncomfortable now. There is another common surgical approach that is infra pubic. That has 2 incisions above the top of the penis. The reservoir tube in that case is over the to...

Re: Popular Maryland surgeons policy on issues soon after implantation

Call BS and ask to talk to a rep. They have resets not on your dvd in your packet. I had trouble with one cylinder not inflating. I spent 3 weeks talking to Kramer about it and he said he could fix it in an office in a few minutes but kept telling me to shake the pump and keep trying. Finally he sta...

Re: Left cylinder not deflating LGX

Have you contacted an AMS Rep? That was the biggest help for me when I had my pump problems. Took care of it in few days as soon as they were able to call me back. This was after working with Kramer for 3 weeks with very little improvement.

Re: Do your homework

Did you receive an AMS packet? I did and I had a DVD in the packet that had a lot of info in it. Ways to inflate and fixes for problems. If you can locate it watch it. Once you get the inflate/deflate thing worked out and start regular inflating/deflating you should start to see some size returning....

Re: My new issues with Titan

I have a AMS LGX and not a Coloplast but I did have some issues like you are having and I hope I can help. My left cylinder would inflate and my right would not until I forced extra pumps in after the left was inflated to max. I finally contacted a highly recommended AMS rep and received a reset for...

Re: I’ll ask the doc, ibut wondered if somebody here might know

I think it depends a lot on the doctor. Some doctors try to use no or little RTE's. And I have seen others like in your case with 5cm or so RTE's. Like some doctor's do AMS or Coloplast only. Or some do infrapubic or peniscrotal only. And some deglove. Some use a drain and some don't. Just depends o...

Watched another video of an infected implant being removed. And the though of loosing a bunch more size.

Re: How long before whacking off after post op? Thoughts?

I just assumed that it was ok once I had been cleared for sex. I think that was about 4 weeks after surgery and a week after activation. But that was a long time ago.
