My implant turned 1

Postby MK1965 » Thu Sep 05, 2019 8:31 am

Just want to reflect on my implant experience.
My implant is turning 1 today. Year ago today, I was implanted with Titan Coloplast 18 cm with 1 RTE. My recovery was bumpy and slow. Started cycling on 12th post op day. When first started cycling, I was only 3.75 inches erect with 4.75 girth. My length started improving slowly and reached 4.5 inches about 4 months later. That 4.5 inches was my starting point before implant- stretched flaccid length. At around 6 months, I had significant improvement with stretch in length of 1 inch. One day while cycling, my penis sprung and extended out with brief feeling of pain like rubber band snap. I am now at 5.5 inches, on good days 5.75” when I take 5 mg Tadalafil and my glans get engorged. I am happy with the length despite being 1 inch shorter which is not related to implant . My loss of length is related to RP for prostate Ca.
As the matter of fact, with implant I gained 1” back but I am still 1 inch short from my pre RP and my lifelong length. I don’t have problem with that.
One thing that bothers me still,1 year after implant, is my flaccid state which is still where it was at 6 months. It is still at 45 degrees or 4:30. I don’t think it will improve more.
I like my flaccid length of around 4.5” and no more turteling and hiding inside my body.
Sex with implant is not much different compared to normal erection. I need lots of time to reach my orgasm but I would say, that is mostly related to RP and that was the case even before implant.
My first sex with implant was at day 75 post surgery. Now, I would like to use it more often but that is not the case. My wife is in full blown menopause and is having less and less interest in sex.
When it happens, sex is good and enjoyable. Hope for improvement in that matter. I heard some women become sex crazy in menopause. Wish that to happen to my wife.
From my experience with Titan, if I ever need replacement, definitely won’t be Titan .
Looking forward to yers ahed.

ViaSwiss,
I was not advised to do that. I am the guy who is always in rush and spend mostly 5 minutes or less while taking showers.
Have nice jacuzzi in bathroom but used it only once in 2+ years.

Wow...that is interesting... any idea of the "instant" length jump measurement ?

MK,
Following my Implant surgery my penis stood out from my body as you describe. Most of my life I have been a nude model for artists and I am at the gym 5 days a week so I wasn’t happy about that look. I solved it with underwear. I know many guys talk about needing special underwear to be comfortable with the extra junk in the trunk, but I found by wearing my same pre-surgery briefs with my stuff pointing down, it eventually trained it to hang down rather than stand out.
I am 63 and had 30 years of ED. Implanted by Dr. Ronald Anglade in Atlanta on 9/18/17. I have an AMS LGX 18cm w/3cm RTE via a Penoscrotal incision. Currently 5 1/2”deflated and 6 1/2” inflated, with 5.5” girth.

Evinrude,
Most likely scar tissue broke and released constricted length.
I wish, it can happen one more time, because I still feel some scar tissue at penis base, but I daubed it.

We had a Jacuzzi in our bathroom for over 10 years and never used it once (it was there when we bought the house). Like MK, I don't linger in the shower - in and out in 5 minutes or less.

Hey MK it’s been a while! I had my IPP a day after you. Just had my 1 year anny as well. Unfortunately I’ve been off this site , but I’d like to jump back on. I’m glad to see your situation has improved. I remember some very frustrating moments from you a year ago. My wife isn’t going through menopause, but she does have a unique issue. She gets nauseous when she orgasms. Sometimes she throws up. We have sought out all sorts of help from psychologists to obgyn to md. To no avail. So our sex life is not as much as We would like. As for the implant, I couldn’t be happier! Cheers!

MK,

Why would you not want a titan again? The hanging angle of your flaccid cock? Just curious as I consider an implant.

Thanks
51yo. Progressively worsening ED over 6 years. No HTN, DM, or related health issues. 20-40mg of Sildenafil or TriMix (30mg, 4mg, 40mcg) 25units. Doses have been increasing so staying open to the idea of an implant. Pumping daily to maintain size.

Always pointing out. Does not have flaccid look and hang which I would prefer to look more natural.
Otherwise, Titan works just fine.
