AMS warning

Postby DougAnd » Wed Apr 24, 2019 8:00 am

This AM I was looking at the AMS video for the 3, 2 and 1 piece units and at the very end there was this warning:
Implantation may result in penile shortening, curvature, or scarring.

I had watched the video for the LGX many times before and never saw this. Is this something new or did I just miss it?

It did cause some shrinkage, but definitely not scarring or curvature. I am very happy with my implants. I have had it since October, and it has grown increasingly so now that I am about 6 inches from when it first started at 4. I'm 1/2 inch shorter than I was originally, but I will take it for the multiple erections and times I can have sex a day. It feels amazing and looks great, I guess it is up to you but I would recommend the surgery with my surgeon to anyone suffering from Ed

Don't get me wrong. I would have done it anyway. But now I'm somewhat embarrassed that I whined like a spoiled brat. No wonder my uro gave me that he's blooming crazy look. I do have to say that I did get all three defects in spades. Came home 4 inches crooked glans and curved shaft and scarring that took 6 months to overcome. A true Trifecta.

this is simply the risk for any implant ( titanio or ams) if it is done by an inexperienced surgeon

And remember that it said, "Implantation may result in penile shortening" (emphasis added). Mine did not shorten at all.

Yeah. Maybe it's just me but I would NOT sale my product to an inexperienced surgeon. Not if he was that bad.

Just wanted to be clear that had I seen this before my implant I may have waited till I could have Dr Kramer do it but I would have still done the surgery. For me 2 years of no sex and then finding out that I had leakage was it. I would have gotten my implant one way or another.
I really feel for you guys whose sex life is waning. Eventually you'll realize that this sacrifice for sex (rather than no sex) is more than worth it.
If there were a better way I would take it. This is as good as it gets.

My experience these ass coverers at least got the facts right. I hated mine. Over 3 years later my wife has quit daily cursing the damned thing and the doctor that put it in. Peace at last!
LGX 21cm .Milam 01/13/16. Horror; both service and surgical outcome. hated infrapubic installation. Kramer revision 03/01/17. 22cm Titan +1.5cm extender. Those who think their opinion is the only one that matters are a danger to themselves and others.

Totally agreed Ali.
Normally I am very thorough. I guess I was mesmerized by the not Geek god they had demonstrating his implant. His was perfect in every way. That is what I expected too. Must have had his done by the implant fairy. You and I were not so lucky.
Let this be a warning to others. A very large percentage of surgeons are not qualified to get it right. My experience. Find the right one first. Otherwise you too will be like Jason searching endlessly.
