I've never seen someone with an implant stress about these talking points with quite such a bleak and dire tone.
Not saying that an implant at his -or any age- isnt a big decision...but i just dont see a lot of people here with more than 2 revisions and as for infections...i think i've seen 2 bad cases here but i know there's probably more

I know you yearn for the glory days (as do I), but many (myself included) would envy your current ability. 2-3 times a day with just a day's rest in between? I'd be happy with 1 decent encounter a week!
Weigh your options carefully. Once you are in, you are all in.
