I am indeed bionic! Just got back to my hotel room, ice and pain meds on board, lying flat on my back. Everything went very well. As a matter of fact the entire experience with Dr Eid, his staff, the surgical team and facility has been perfect and flawless. My wife and I can’t speak highly enough of Dr Eid. His demeanor, patience and willingness to listen is unparalleled. A truly unique physician. So far so good but now the hard part begins. I am so thankful to have a loving, supportive and caring wife to help me through this. I also really appreciate the support from my brothers.
I was implanted with a 22cm Titan, which of course means no RTEs. I am happy with that. I would say the worst part of all of this was the cystoscopy at the preop visit. They use lidocaine in the urethra but it was a very uncomfortable feeling. Good news was there was no evident damage or scarring of the urethra. He then did the injection and measurements. Got a pretty crappy erection and the process reminded why I have no interest in injections. His measurements came up about a half inch shorter than mine but under the circumstances that’s kind of expected I think. He said I’ll probably be a 21 but maybe he could fit a 22. Last thing I said to him in the OR was go for that straight 22 if you can but I trust you to know what’s best.
The other thing was during the Doppler I had a very pronounced venous leak. Excellent blood flow in but not holding during diastole. He showed me the waveform and explained what it meant. Otherwise the canvernosum was clear.
I had the procedure done at the Midtown Surgical Center. Yesterday Dr Eid told me that sometimes there, depending on who is doing anesthesia that I may not get a spinal and would get general instead. I wasn’t too pleased with that so woke up at the crack of dawn and called over there and informed them that I wanted to be sure to have a spinal. I got the spinal and all went great. I didn’t pull a “Hawk” and stay awake. My propofol sedation was nice and I have no grogginess or hangover whatsoever.
So for now I’m just relaxing. I’ll keep you guys updated:)
