Day 8- Observations at one week post op

Well I'm over a week past implantation now so I thought I would try to organize some thoughts and observations. I started cycling in hot baths on day 4 and have done so twice per day since.

SIZE: This of course is always the biggest concern right? I presently have post op measurements of 6 in length and 5 1/8 in girth. This compares to 6.5 x 5 1/2 in pre-op. The post op measurement is with no arousal, actually the opposite of arousal due to discomfort. The pre-op best measurements were after VED manual pumping and masturbating to porn and measuring at peak. This would not be a realistic assessment of my size during actual intercourse.

SHAPE: My erect penis is very straight and hard. At present I haven't experienced it in an "aroused" state. The erect penis is wider and flatter compared to pre-op. I don't have the prominent urethral belly during erection. This is either due to the spongiosum surrounding urethra not engorging or the urethra is being squeezed between the inflated cylinders. Ideally, I'm hoping to get some blood flow/engorgement of the spongiosum and glans during sexual arousal later in the healing process.
The flaccid penis is more of a concern at this point. It's at about 3:30 which I expect to change over time as previously discussed above. I can definitely feel the folds inside the shaft and it hangs to the left from the base. I can feel the tubing as it goes into the reservoir as I am very lean. It's almost as if the reservoir and tubing have kind of pushed the base of the penis to the right so it comes off my body at a weird angle. I can feel a slight buldge at the reservoir and it is still tender. When fully deflated the penis feels plastic and "squeaky" when I manipulate it. Also, my urine stream is different, sometimes turbulent and weaker, like the cylinder folds are causing constrictions and irregularities inside the urethra.
I am keeping the penis pointed up. It naturally bends about 1/3 the way up from the base. It wants to bend and hang left but I'm trying to keep it up.
There is no bruising or visible swelling- hard to believe I had surgery a week ago, one would never know aside from he stitches

PUMP: The pump sits behind the testicles in the bottom of my scrotum. I have a small, tight scrotum and the pump is larger than either testicle (thanks to testosterone therapy, plus I never really had big balls to start with). However, it is accessible without too much trouble. The base of the pump sits kind of back towards perineum and it leans forward so that the stalk where the tubing and deflate button are a little more forward kind of under and between the testicles. I can easily access the deflate button as it is more less to the front. It's a little difficult getting my opposing finger on the depression opposite the deflate button as it pointing slightly backward and is in a little more tender area. Aside from the soreness, inflating and deflating isn't too difficult and I expect with time the soreness will decrease, the pump with soften, hopefully my scrotum will be a bit more accommodating and it will just get easier over time.
The deflate button to date pretty much requires me to compress it the whole time while I squeeze the shaft. It hurts. When I get a what I think is the best deflate I can, my penis looks deformed. I hit the pump again to "reset" the valve. It still seems like I get just a little fluid back in the penis afterward because its not as deformed. I'm taking Alibabas advice and trying to squeeze the perineum area as well.

PAIN: I have not experienced what I would call severe pain during any part of this. No more than a 4 or 5 out of 10 at worse. It's just been a general sense of soreness, discomfort, pressure and awareness. Days 5 and 6 were a bit more uncomfortable as I started getting more active. I have still been resting most times and haven't been going out doing things. The most severe pain is during cycling. That can get up in the 8/10 range. I have kept pain meds to a minimum, mostly relying on 600mg of Ibuprofen and 1000mg Tylenol a few times a day. I have taken narcotics prior to getting into tub for cycling. The shaft and tip of my penis and scrotum around pump are sore but only in that dull achy, annoying kind of way. Today, day 8, is the least painful day so far.

CYCLING: Twice per day. 40 minute baths. I have been getting 30-32 pumps in max. Hard to quantify because they have been partial pumps but this morning I was definitely able to get fuller squeezes per pump. Pumping until I can't squeeze anymore. During the last couple of minutes before deflate doing a couple of "top off" pumps to make sure I'm at max. Pain tolerance is a limiting factor, feels like my dick is going to explode. I have to keep telling myself this is only the first week. I feel fortunate to be able to have started cycling so early. Each day I will try to do a little more than the previous day.

PSYCHOLOGY: Basically how do I feel about everything emotionally? I haven't had any outright, WTF have I done freak out moments but I definitely have those moments where I still can't believe I have done this and question whether is was the right decision. When you first feel the penis deflated it is very apparent that things will never be the same again. Initially it feels so artificial and strange. Struggling though the pain of cycling is hard. But when in inflated it is obvious that I will have a very functional and hard penis. My wife has been incredibly supportive and positive with this. I have maintained a positive and optimistic attitude. My two biggest concerns are:

1. Will my wife enjoy having sex with me and my new dick. I just hope she isn't "disappointed" in it. I love pleasing her more than anything. I know its going to work for me, I just hope it works for her. My own conclusion in this, thinking ahead, is that she loves me and not just my dick. It's how confident I am about myself, and my abilities, that turn her on the most. I can rock her world in so many ways, intercourse is the just the icing on the cake. But I intend on icing that cake well!

2. How this device interferes with daily activities, that is work and gym. I thing I'll be ok at work. May have to make some modifications on my sitting and positioning for a bit but not too worried there. My biggest concern is the gym. I am an avid Crossfitter which, if you know nothing about it, is one of the most intense workout programs on the planet. So much of it involves core, squatting, hip drive etc. I fear that I may not be able to do many of the movements necessary due mostly to the pump in the scrotum and the reservoir in the pubic area. This would be the most devastating thing of all for me. Regardless, I'm not even thinking of trying to work out for a minimum of 4 weeks, likely 6 weeks. It's a tough call as to whether which is more important to me, sex or the gym. They actually are the two pillars of my mental and physical self esteem.

Looking forward, next milestones are continuing to cycle and improve pumping with hopefully a gradual decrease in pain. Suture removal in one week, I'll do myself. And then that magical day 21, will I be ready to attempt sex. That's a whole two weeks away, eternity, but will be here in the blink of an eye, so I will just worry about tomorrow, one day at a time. Overall, I'm very pleased to be where I am at only one week post-op!

Two week update

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year. I managed to get out to a NYE party and had a reasonably good time at day 12 post op. As of yesterday, I'm at 2 weeks post op. I, with the help of my wife, removed the sutures yesterday with no trouble. The healing is remarkable with no evidence of an incision. I also finished the last dose of antibiotics thank goodness because they made me feel kind of nauseous. I have been cycling twice daily in a hot bath since day four. I usually take a 40 minute bath while ramping up the inflation to max over 20-25 minutes. I am getting 30-35 pumps in. As time goes on, with the initial 20-25 pumps I am getting fuller pumps. The first ten squeezes kind of still burn but after that they don't. The deflate is a little more difficult as I have to hold that button down and squeeze as much as I can but all in all not too bad. I will say these two weeks while not a nightmare, have been pretty tough, definitely taken its toll on me.
I do have some concerns at the two week point. I actually texted Dr Eid this morning with some questions and concerns. Haven't heard back yet but I'm sure I will soon.

1. The Pump: it is still quite present and uncomfortable in my scrotum. I think it is basically well positioned but I have a tight, small scrotum so there just isn't a lot of room in there. The pump is the biggest thing in my scrotum. It is positioned behind the testicles, slightly to the right and below to the extent that my sack allows. It kind of sits at 45 degree angle with the pump posterior and lower and the stalk and deflate button angled up and forward more between the testicles. The pump is concealed behind my testicles but is a very prominent hard ball that pushes toward my perineum and kind of chafes my scrotum between my legs. The pump pushes my testicles forward which gives them more prominence. I have a constant sort of low grade ache like I got kicked in the balls. So, not sure where this is going. I think I'd rather have one testicle and have the pump replace the second one. I'm on testosterone therapy anyway so I don't really need them both! Right now it feels kind of like I have a golf ball between my legs.

2. Dog ears and flaccid bend: I have a significant flaccid bend to the left from the base and a lot of dog ear-ing at the base as it enters my body on the right side. This seams to be causing the left bend. My flaccid "hang" is approaching 4:00 with a good deflate but it really bends left. When inflated it is very straight with no dog ears. Will see what time does here.

3. Reservoir: More prominent then I thought it would be. Still kind of tender, can feel it and see it. I am very lean. Hoping there is still some inflammation and this will become less of an issue but I have a feeling that because of my body type this may be something I just have to put up with. This bothers me mostly because one of my favorite lifts is the snatch which involves a barbell hitting in the pubic area. I have a feeling I may never be able to snatch again.

4. Urination: This has been kind of weird. The implant has affected my urine stream. It is weaker and erratic. The sensation in my bladder telling me I need to urinate feels different, starting urination is harder. I sense that the folds in the deflated implant are creating pressure points in my urethra and possible there is inflammation around the bladder and perhaps the prostate as well due to the procedure. Hopefully will improve with time.

5. Psychologically: still trying to wrap my head around the permanence of what I've done. Of course I go through the second guessing but I must say my wife has been incredibly supportive and optimistic about it all which really helps.

So these are my concerns. I know it has only been two weeks!

On the flip side, I'm amazed at how well things healed with no bruising or visible swelling. I am amazed that I was able to start cycling this thing at 4 days. I am impressed with the quality and hardness of the erection. There is no doubt that when everything is said and done, this thing is going to perform extremely well.
I was in the tub cycling the other day and my wife walked in and stood at the foot of the tub looking at me from that perspective. Her first words were, "Wow, its looks so wide". Like in a good way. I've still yet to experience it or measure in any kind of aroused state so I don't know if there will be any additional engorgment of spongiosum around the urethra and glans. I had that pre-op so hopefully will have some of that post op. But one thing is for sure, my penis is definitely wider from side to side, measures almost 2 inches across. I can just tell visually that that is different from before. I'm hoping that my urethra will fill out the bottom a little more with arousal.

I am trying to ween off of the hot baths. I bought a small, soft electric heating pad that works really nicely to loosen things up. This morning for the first time I cycled in bed using the heating pad, it worked really well. See attached pic that I sent to my wife from my morning inflate. I call it "rise and shine"! My pre-op "erection" would have been lying flat on my belly in this position but here its at 45 degrees! My goal is when I start back to work next week, I will wake early, heat up in bed and inflate, then transition to my hot morning shower still inflated and then deflate in the shower and go about my day.

I'll update once I hear back from Dr Eid as well.

Day 19

Today was a milestone because it was my first day back to work. I had a full schedule of patients and was on the go for 10 hours. Surprisingly, I did very well, way better than I expected. I was up and down a lot, sat for a few procedures that were 1-2 hours long. The beauty is that I wear scrub pants which are perfect for concealment and comfort.
I was mostly surprised at how little discomfort I had. My biggest concern to date has been the pump but in the last few days that issue has greatly diminished and I was hardly aware of it at all today. This is a huge relief! I kept my unit pointed up. I have these underwear from a company called King Style at kingstyle.com. They have a sleeve that keeps the penis pointed up and a separate pouch for the scrotum so my junk was compact and contained. No one could tell anything and I sat and walked comfortably all day.

I started the morning by waking in bed about 45 min earlier than normal. Grabbed my heating pad and put in on my crotch. Pumped up in bed, 10 pumps waited for my snooze alarm then another 10 pumps, waited on snooze then got up and into the shower and pumped up 10+ more to max while showering. Deflated then went about my normal business.

It was great getting back to work to join the land of the living. Once I got home I had dinner with the family then had a nice hot soak in the tub for 40 min and cycled again. So, I think I'll make this my routine.

I'm two days out from the magical day 21. I'm feeling better by the day but will likely wait until the weekend to christen this thing.

As for issues:
1. Pump- improving by the day as far as comfort and position. My scrotum seems to have relaxed more probably as a result of decreasing inflammation. I'm just not nearly as aware of it as I was. I expect this to continue to improve. I'm getting wall to wall pumps now for the first 20 and partials up to about 35. The pain in the scrotum with pumping is definitely decreasing as well.

2. Flaccid- still about the same. 3:30 to 4 with a left bend hang. Seems like during the day it got a little stiffer and fuller. I don't necessarily think this was an auto fill situation but more likely fluid collecting from being on my feet all day. Up to this point I've spent most of my time on my back. When I got into the hot bath and laid back it felt softer and more deflated. Still working on improving my deflation technique.

3. Urination- still not normal but not as bad. I've been drinking a ton of water to keep things moving down there.

4. Pain- in general and across the board has decreased significantly since the two week mark and suture removal. I still take Motrin/Tylenol a couple of times a day but mostly just preventively. I probably don't need it at all.

Overall making good progress and optimistic

Today was a milestone because it was my first day back to work. I had a full schedule of patients and was on the go for 10 hours. Surprisingly, I did very well, way better than I expected. I was up and down a lot, sat for a few procedures that were 1-2 hours long. The beauty is that I wear scrub pants which are perfect for concealment and comfort.
I was mostly surprised at how little discomfort I had. My biggest concern to date has been the pump but in the last few days that issue has greatly diminished and I was hardly aware of it at all today. This is a huge relief! I kept my unit pointed up. I have these underwear from a company called King Style at kingstyle.com. They have a sleeve that keeps the penis pointed up and a separate pouch for the scrotum so my junk was compact and contained. No one could tell anything and I sat and walked comfortably all day.

I started the morning by waking in bed about 45 min earlier than normal. Grabbed my heating pad and put in on my crotch. Pumped up in bed, 10 pumps waited for my snooze alarm then another 10 pumps, waited on snooze then got up and into the shower and pumped up 10+ more to max while showering. Deflated then went about my normal business.

The phrase "Time heals all wounds" couldn't be more true than a post implant patients major complaints. Once you body gets use to all the new gadgets that was placed in you, you will not even notice them. As for a small, tight scrotum... I had a small tight scrotum, then two surgeons cut all of my penis shaft off and gave me a new one using scrotal skin. Then, two years later Dr. Brock comes along and the only way for him to fix the mistakes of the first two was to give me an implant and of course, place the pump in my smaller, tighter scrotum. That skin is incredibly elastic and, trust me, there is lots of room... otherwise he wouldn't have been able to close the incision. Give it time my friend. In another 2 months, you won't even think about it until your wife gets home and you get a sniff of the perfume she is wearing.. ;)
