Re: Eid consult todAy

LBC, One of the benefits many of us discuss in these pages is how an implant can help you with control. My doc told me that the more pumps in the implant, the longer I may expect to last. While my wife and I always seemed to do a good job of orchestrating our mutual satisfaction, it is clear a few m...

Re: Revision this morning with Dr. Hakky

Thanks to all. AST, the leak occurred at the base of the pump bulb. Dr. Hakky took pictures as he pulled it out of me and I saw them this morning.

Dear NiO, Real glad to have read your post. I just had a revision done by Dr. Hakky yesterday (3-25) and also was prescribed the Ketorolac.

Re: Shake it, shake it.

Donnie,
While seated, press upward and forwards the perineal region behind your scrotum with your finger. Then squeeze the bottom of your shaft and advance this pressure toward the tip. I usually can coax a few more squirts out of me with this method. It works while standing as well.

Re: Getting insurance company to pay for an implant.

An implant was also specifically excluded in my employer provided insurance, but my doctor’s office staff was successful at overcoming that obstacle. Ask them to make your case for the medical necessity of the procedure.

Re: Implant and tight scrotum

LBC,
My scrotum has always been tight as you describe, and I got the implant three years ago. Never had a problem. The doc had me repeatedly pull down on the pump as I was healing and now everything seems to be at home.

Re: Does anyone regret getting their implant? Nervous. Surgery tomorrow

NY,
You should know that there is no going back. This is a decision with permanent outcomes.
We all are nervous about it. But in hindsight, I'm happy with the decision and so is my wife.
Most everyone here will tell you the same thing.

Best wishes.
