Re: I'm Bionic! Quincy's journal.

Quincy...many thanks for your journal!! My implant is in 5 weeks so your 'day by day' is VERY helpful. I've purchased a pair of Nike training shorts (like U/A compression shorts) for the post-op days. Is the jock working well for you? Did you try any compression shorts? I'm just trying to be prepare...

Re: Scared to death

arlorider...although I am not yet a true 'brother' (my surgery is next month, 7/16), I truly share your fears. Only three real surgeries in my life...two at 4 years old (left side hernia and tonsil/adenoid removal) and one in 2010 for a right side hernia (laparoscopic). All, of course, were necessar...

Re: Post-op positioning

Chuck...I'll be following your positioning 'adventure' closely since my Coloplast Titan OTR implant is scheduled for 7/16 (close on the heels of a two week trip to Paris/ Bordeaux). I know that my surgeon will tape me 'up' upon discharge but, understandably, I haven't been given any positioning guid...

Re: Guys Help me make this BOLD decision

Woundedlion...I've read lots on this site from any number of other men who have suffered with ED for many more reasons than I have and echoed many regrets for not having an implant sooner. I am neither a doctor nor a medical rep for any of the leading prosthesis manufacturers and, like you, I've bee...

Re: Needles through the Glands during Surgery ?

All...thanks for the description, references, and links! I was prepared to question my surgeon this Wednesday (5/16) about this and 20+ other items that you, my brothers, have highlighted in preparation for my procedure on 7/16. I'm still going to have him describe the method he'll use since I've be...

Thanks, bldoink. However, nothing doing with needles! Sorry. It will never happen.

Re: Pre-Op Day - Nice Surprise

Great attitude going in! I'm still in the two month pre-op "WTF am I planning to do" mode. I've had a great medical life with only 2 hernia operations to my surgical record and (thank GOD, or whoever you may believe in) NO cancerous reasons to go under the knife. I cannot 'measure up' to m...

Re: Quality 'FrankTalk'-like Forum for Wives of ED Sufferers?

I very much appreciate all the responses, both 'public' and PM! I fully understand, now, that FT is a guys only forum since I've seen some others sites where discussions get WAY off topic and seem more like a morals bitch session among some of the women who respond. Thanks, Larry, for moderating and...

Quality 'FrankTalk'-like Forum for Wives of ED Sufferers?

Still over 2 months out from my scheduled implant surgery, my wife and I had an in-depth discussion of the procedure today and I told her what a tremendous forum this site is! The experiences of men who are 'on the other side' of their surgery has been invaluable for me to formulate questions for my...
