Mk,
At your stage I was 5 3/4", had started out at 5 1/4 so 1/2". Now I just hit 6 1/4 so another 1/2" .
I was pumped 20% for 5 days after surgery gave me a huge start. Still on the day of surgery I was only 4". Many guys from their pics were even shorter because of shrink to fit techniques.
Mk,
If you were still scarred and shrunk before surgery and then scarred and shrunk even more by the surgery it will take time to heal and stretch. I am one of the most impatient people I know always looking for a faster angle but you will need to heal and work it daily. As much as is safe just keep on stretching How are your tips? Do they hurt keenly when you are fully pumped? If so flaccid stretch until it subsides and keep on pumping!
The key is to s t r e t c h !!! You have the length, fight for it.

100% healing must take place before any kind of stretching should take place.. I stretched prior to surgery and that helped a lot in my case.
No we are here to give our own personal advice to help. If I've done or tried something and it helped then by all means I'll tell.
Bring up and question or concerns.. we all might learn something..
Keep focused

FishingTime,
But how long is that healing? I know is different for everyone but what is it in general; 4 weeks, 6 weeks, 2 months, 6 months or longer.
I see many are talking about “wonderful and blazing fast” progress and that lieves some of us in doubt about our own progress, myself included.
I am also young in very good health and good physical shape, very active, non smoker, non drinker, not overweight ( 6’1” and 215 lbs or less for past 18 years) I don’t have diabetes, good cholesterol levels all the time, with only slightly elevated BP which is controlled well with medication.I am wondering if then is something wrong with me?
Many here had sex at 21 day post implant. My doctor wants 6 weeks which is tomorrow 10/17.
But honestly, I am not excited about taking it for test ride because it does not look rite and doesn’t feel right.
I started cycling it at 12th day post op and my painfully inflated penis is only at 3 3/4 max. I don’t think is even useful to engage in sex.
Others with very similar length of cylinders are talking about 5+ inches at the start?
I am really wondering how accurate they are?
Honestly, I don’t think I am the worst example here but according what others are reporting YES, I AM .
Hopping for progress to start.

Mk..
Normal healing 4-6 weeks to be activated which mean you can start to have sex,masturbate or whatever. Still at 6 weeks doesn't mean everything is completely healed. It can take up to 3-6 months depending on how a man's body heals and gets used to the implant. Me at almost 9 months still have some discomfort at the base an in my glans but has improved a lot over time. With sensitivity returning more each week.
I only did test drive cause I was very curious of how it felt (masturbate) my doc didn't like that I did that, but he said only I know my body and knew if it was ok to do so, I took my time. I didn't have any actual intercourse until week 8. And at that time it was still very tender and went slow.
Did you do any type of stretching prior to surgery?
I did I think it helped me when implant was placed for room.
Post surgery I also pumped up 3 x a day for 15 minutes each time letting things relax with in that time an pumped up a few more this helps with keeping things in place and letting the penis get stretched and get used to the implant...

FishingTime,
Yes I did. I started using VED at 2 months post radical prostatectomy and used it until I was implanted on 9/5 with 7 weeks prior to implant very extensively.
After implant when activated on 9/17 (12th day post op) I was advised to do the same what you mentioned 3x day at least 15 minutes each time.
When I saw PA at 4 weeks post op he said I can play with my penis but no sex for 6 weeks. I did play 2x to orgasam and had some nice sensations which were fairly intense and I can say “better then what I had feel after prostatectomy “ which I was excited about because my orgasams after prostate removal really sucked.
I am doing cycling as instructed 3x a day but I am stuck with the progress.
My penis doesn’t have oval or round shape when inflated, looks very flat, when deflated, looks terrible, twisted to one side, crucked, complete penis rotated to the left around its axis, triangular and still this much deflated sticks straight out at 90 degrees with no sign of softening and lowering the angle.
If I knew this before I got implanted...........

Mk,
I'm not familiar with prostate surgery. But the prostate is below and not part of your penis per se. I have to assume that your loss of 2 inches was from scarring due to no erections and low blood flow, right? It sounds as if you are using the vacuum device even more aggressively than I ever did.
I can see why your surgeon chose Titan, to help the thicker cylinders stretch you out. Not sure why the VED is not making better progress. What pressure are you using? Is yours electric or hand pump? You should be seeing better faster results for all of this effort you have put into this. With 18+1 you should see at least 5.5 inches.
Mark your VED tube and look at the measurement at the end of a session. You should be at least 1/4" longer VED than you are fully pumped.
Let me know what you are doing maybe I can help

DougAnd,
Your response sound like misunderstanding.
I used VED starting 2 months after prostate removal until I was implanted on 9/5. I used Pos T Vac 1000 manual pump. I did not use VED after I was implanted.
My surgeon did not agree with that.
My only stretching is thru cycling 3x daily for 15 minutes each time.
So, no use of VED after I was implanted.

I have to add my 2 cents to those that thing normal hang is not possible. This is my 8 month post implant flacid pic. I measure 4" flacid and just under 6" hard at this point.

Everyone's implant fits them different and hangs different and implant sizes makes a difference as well.
I must say yours looks very natural.
Congrats
