3 Drs. Three surgeries still not right.

Postby Jollyhellfarter » Wed Oct 09, 2019 12:19 pm

Wtf. Relatively simple operation and they cant get this right what if someone had to have heart surgery.
1st surgery. Used implant I did not choose and was very specific about. Wanted lgx, Dr. Used CX said it was cause scarring, no sign of scarring by this Dr. Seen or new Dr. But somehow wanted to use one I didnt authorize. And put implant that was 4 cm to large inside me causing massive paid and deformity.
2nd surgery. Dr. Used cx implant again but left one side significantly shorter.
3rd surgery. New Dr. Used titan, but the pump auto inflates several times per day. And the corporotomy was placed half way up my penis not allowing even close to full penetration. Numbness and pain.
I would not recommend this surgery to anyone. I am now inside Dr. Office and awaiting nurse practitioner to tell me WHAT I already know. I will need a 4th surgery. Like wtf. Thinking about another Dr. Who should I go to. I am in st.Louis area

Hi.

Yes, it seems to be a crapshoot unless you go to one of the top four, which I often wish I had. Not that they are infallible, or guarantee perfection, but at least they won’t leave you wondering if it could’ve been done better.

Re auto-inflation, this is quite frustrating. Not sure what is going on there. The deflate valve appears to be able to flow in two directions. So if the reservoir (not the pump) is under any pressure from gravity or abdominal muscles, saline is going to flow back into the cylinders until and equilibrium is reached. I hate it. When I want it flaccid, I want it flaccid so I can wear normal clothes without pain of a semi hard shaft. I tried that pump squeeze but it didnt work. Never felt “pop” everyone speaks fondly of.

Anyway, hope your luck turns around. It’s definitely not all good. I have to just settle for “better than it was”.

My sympathies! I had three implants in the course of four years. Pain and frustration! But, fortunately for me, I was able to fuck. I am not sorry to have been implanted. I am VERY VERY sorry for my choice of my first implant doctor.

The "auto fill" kinda comes and goes for me and it's not really an issue.

Hopefully you will get "all fixed up" and be able to have some fun. Good luck, man!

I had my first implant done in cleveland. The doctor I was refered to was supposed to be one of the best. He had been doing surgeries for 50yrs. We talked it over and I wanted the ams lgx. After the surgery I found out it was a ams700 cxr. which was too damned short. I saw him 2times after that and he knew I was pissed. I asked him to fix it and he refused. a month latter the tips were out of place and were not where they were supposed to be.
I seen another doctor for a 2nd opinion. He asked me why I didn,t go to him first. Then he told me I needed a revision and he scheduled me for it in July. My first surgery was in March of 2019. He said he could get maybe a couple of centimeters more. I was at 2 and a half inches inflated. After getting burnt the first time, I worried about what he told me and I called another doctor in Baltimore. He was changing practices and I had to wait until July to get an appointment.
The appointment was in Aug. Aug. 19th with Dr Kramer. On the 20th he removed the ams and put in a titan. Dr Kramer was worth the wait. I have no regrets. I am happy with what he did.
It is frustrating to go to a doctor and not get the results you want. It is sometimes hard to find the correct info on doctors because their mistakes sometimes are not listed. Dr Kramer was highly recommended on this sight and other research that I have used.
I am not pushing you to see another doctor. I am saying for me it was worth the trip and costs to go to someone who is among the tops. I am sorry to see you have had all of this trouble. There is more to researching doctors that some of us need to learn.
With that being said, I wish you the best of luck. I have gotten lucky so far with my decision and wanted to relay that there are good doctors out there. Finding them may be the hardest part. The best of luck to you

Do yourself a favor and schedule an appointment w/ Dr. Kramer. I live in the St. Louis area...Southwest has a non-stop to Baltimore at good prices...hotels are reasonable. Worth the trip to get it done right...
