Re: Newly Bionic

Welcome to the brotherhood and wishing you a quick recovery. Dr Hakky will be my surgeon again on March 30. He is a super guy and a great doctor. He and his staff are amazing!! I really like how easy it is to talk with him and how frank and common he replies. He is the BEST!

Re: Reservoir failure ? anyone?

Biker You do usually go up in size. I started with an 18 in 2013, 20 in 2017 & 22 in 2020. My revisions went better than the original. My last one went great. I think I took two pain pills just as precaution. One was for the five hour ride home. Depends on the age of implant. I had revision in 2...

Re: Reservoir failure ? anyone?

Sorry you’re having issues. I had that problem and it was the pump that was defective. I’m told they have recalled that pump but I can’t say for sure. The doctor replaced my pump with a one touch pump.

Re: Just for our of surgery

Well they had a weight on me for the first night and started icing the following morning before I was discharged. The last surgery I left the hospital about 4 hours after surgery and started icing for the 5 hour ride home. The last doctor did not use any weights but he did a scrotal approach.

Re: Having a hard time moving forward with implant

The first time I was off for two weeks. On my last revision I was one week. I have an office job and not in my feet all the ti...
