Measurements before/after surgery.

Postby Colm123 » Sun Apr 05, 2020 7:52 pm

I have peyronies and have lost size. Heard that the flacid penile stretched length is what you can expect after surgery. What if your stretched flacid length is 5cm shorter than your erections. Could you possibly lose the 5cm?

How are you measuring your erections that it doesn't show up on the stretched flacid test. In other words, are you measuring in a ved?

Never measured my stretch length but I did measure what I had with trimix and VED in the tube. I got exactly that after IPP.

I had ED for many years and had already begun to lose some length when I had a Prostatectomy due to Prostate Cancer. That really shortened my penis and it got smaller when I developed Peyronies. By the time my surgeon did the stretch test to show me approximately what I would end up with it as just over 4" as opposed to the 6.5" I had most of my life. When I explained to him that I could massage my shaft and get 5" without getting hard, he still said the stretch test number was likely what I would end up with.

After my implant surgery when the surgeon checked on my he told me he had been able to scrape away the Peyronies plaque and that loosened up my penis so he was able to use a larger implant than he had expected to. The first time I took off all the gauze around my dick I measured and it was just over 4". I knew the device was not fully inflated so I hoped with full inflation and some time cycling it I would gain more.

After about a year I was back to my lifelong 6.5" length. I know what my surgeon did with the scraping made a difference and I was diligent about cycling. I believe surgeons are just very hesitant to overpromise so the stretch test size seems to be the standard answer when we all ask what we can expect.
I am 64 and had ED from a VL. Implanted by Dr. Ronald Anglade in Atlanta on 9/18/17. I have an AMS700LGX 21 cm via a Penoscrotal incision. Very happy with results. 6" soft and 6 3/4” x 5 5/8” hard.
