Stretch Test

Postby Magicmike » Sun Aug 11, 2019 5:31 pm

When the doctor does the stretch test before surgery how hard does he pull. Right now my own stretch test is getting me 7.25 but that is me really stretching to the max. Anyone out there can u fill me in

I never had a stretch test and ended up with lifelong length.
I believe if you're sized right, you'll be where you want to be.

My doc said he'd inject me with something when I was under.
I don't know what or how since even quad mix had stopped working.

I wonder if the sizing rods act like a stretch?

If you watch the videos that have links here in FT, they show the doctor sizing from the inside the penis, not stretching it out. That must be more precise, I guess.

The stretch test is meaningless for purposes of surgery. The only measurement that has any meaning is done internally during the surgery to determine the size of cylinders to use.

I really think the stretch test is BS and done simply to manage your expectations. (Under promise, over deliver).
Suffered with ED for most of my life. Viagra then to Trimix then implanted 3/8/2018 with AMX 700 CX 21cm with 1cm RTE. 50 years old Urolift procedure performed 30 day prior to my implant surgery.

I had the stretch test twice before survery. 14 cm pubic bone to mid glans. Measured after implant when Fully inflated :14 cm to tips, mid glans.
Stretching the penis by hand a d then measuring against the pubic bone was accurate for me

gene, that's what we all hope for at the end.
I think it's a coin-kee-dinky that they measured you properly.

Could be I was just lucky with the measurement and the results. It would be interesting to learn about other experienses with this measurement. It is a simple external measurement that maybe a predictor of external results
