Re: Is pumping up the equivalent of a stretch test?

I would concur that the VED creates a larger than natural erection and probably isn't a realistic expectation of the measurement you will have after an implant. In my case I have some real numbers. Pre-op my max stretch with a VED was 6 5/8th inches, if I immediately put on a ring I had a girth mid ...

Re: New Implant Journey

Two week update I hope everyone had a Happy New Year. I managed to get out to a NYE party and had a reasonably good time at day 12 post op. As of yesterday, I'm at 2 weeks post op. I, with the help of my wife, removed the sutures yesterday with no trouble. The healing is remarkable with no evidence ...

Re: My boob job!

Again, getting back to my original point. Obviously, the penile implant is primarily done for function with any cosmetic benefits coming as a secondary benefit if there is any at all. My thought when I originally wrote this was really the psychological aspect of how it affects our self esteem and se...

Re: New Implant Journey

Day 8- Observations at one week post op Well I'm over a week past implantation now so I thought I would try to organize some thoughts and observations. I started cycling in hot baths on day 4 and have done so twice per day since. SIZE: This of course is always the biggest concern right? I presently ...

Re: New Implant Journey

There is always some irony and humor to be found in any situation. Today marks the one week milestone since my surgery. Generally when I'm in the tub soaking and inflating I have music streaming to pass the time. As I was pumping the implant up today, the song "Under Pressure" by Queen and...

Re: New Implant Journey

Likewise, no issues after the catheter came out. I was expecting to get that burning uncomfortable feeling but fortunately I didn't. All the plumbing seems to be working fine thank goodness.

Re: New Implant Journey

Day 4: CYCLING SUCCESS!!! In the hot bath tonight, I located the deflate button, pushed it with my right index finger and thumb opposing, squeezed my shaft and it deflated from where I was left post operatively. Confident that I could deflate, I used a washcloth for grip, grabbed the bulb with my ri...

Re: New Implant Journey

Day 3: So Day 3 has passed and it was interesting. Larry, I was able to remove catheter with no problem. I had very clear written instructions and diagrams. Just suck the air out of the balloon and pull it out. Easiest task so far! After pulling the catheter, I unbandaged and did the big reveal. I w...

Re: New Implant Journey

I opted to keep it in as it hasn’t caused me any discomfort. One hour flight home and navigating the airports were no problem. Just walking a little slow and funny. Had a disposable ice pack with me and put it in my pants on the plane. I’ll take this catheter out when I get home. I’m hoping that won...
