Re: Rigicon Implants

Someone had a thread about this last week… From what I gathered, only the malleables are available in the United States because of clearances… they have been around for years, apparently… Pretty much all that I could find outside of their website, to be quite honest… Be well!

Re: Post implant, any reason to keep these? pills, rings, ved

Hey, I have 10 days left of pills until my doctor told me to stop them to prepare for surgery… I can’t wait to throw these useless things out! I’m 32, in the exact same boat as you… My surgeon kind of told me if I have the engorgement, that’s great but he should be able to make it so it’s not going ...

Hey, I am a medical student… With all of the research being done into stem cell therapy and tissue regrowth, the same thing definitely crossed my mind… I’m 32 years old… At this stage in life, a lot of things can happen with medical advancements… After some thinking, I realized that I could either b...

Re: New implant brand advertised on FT

I I am requesting info right now… It would be great if it was concealable and had good girth “as advertised“ maybe I’m dreaming? I can always call the surgeon sometime this week and ask if he’s doing this yet… See if he knows anything… This could be the best of both worlds we’ve all been asking for?...

Re: Cost

OK, I’m a weird case… I’m 32… I’m blind and I’m within three years of double organ transplants… I qualify “for now“ for Medicare and Pennsylvania state Medicaid… I am seeing a surgeon because of his experience that is a state or two away… Total cost of surgery is 20,000… Medicaid “because it is out ...

Amount left inflated after surgery…

Does the amount that you are left inflated differ from person to person? Is it doctor to doctor? How much does Dr. Kramer leave you inflated? Again, you have all been so helpful with all of this… I’m pretty sure my only question after these is if anyone has any recipes for all of these bags of froze...

Re: Concerts and events detectability

Thank you, guys! I feel reassured… You’re all pretty good at that… I have two shows on Broadway, a concert, and several vacations planned with the lady over the next six months… This helps a lot!

Concerts and events detectability

So, I’m a younger guy… I go to a lot of concerts and Broadway shows… Am I going to have to explain myself and the implant every time? I know airports are in issue and I’ve seen a lot of that stuff but haven’t really read up on the things they use at concerts…

Re: Upright after new implant How long & how do you urinate
