Coming up short

Postby Pete5829 » Mon Jun 08, 2020 8:40 am

I was implanted in Oct 2019. Followed all the guidance on here about cycling and stretching for the first 3-4 months then started having sex with wife. I was about 6” when I was in my twenty (pre-ED) with awesome girth. Now post implant I’m 4.25”. It’s just not quite enough to be satisfying for either of us. It’s better than nothing but not what I wanted. Anything I can do?

In my case and I’m only about a month ahead of you I found that my length and girth did change much until I was able to pump to max wait a while and pump some more but that was after 6 plus months and leaving it pumped up To max for about an hour

I did come across several articles on it from the National Institutes of Health I’d post the links here but not sure how to do it from my iPhone.

So you’re saying keep pumping and holding for about 1 hr and it can still expand even 8 months post surgery and with a lot of those months having been hardly used or pumped?

be creative with positions. My wife is very overweight and things have "shifted" since her thirties and are much less accessible now in her early sixties. I too am a bit overweight but I'm losing my fat-pad as I take off the pounds. My loss was due to Peyronie's Disease and the atrophy of ED. What I was thirty years ago, about 6.5" is now optimistically on a good day with a painful bone-press to my pubic, only about 6" but in practice on an average day I get about 5.5" length that's usable.

The positions my wife and I used back in our heyday, some thirty years ago, will not work now. About the only position we use now, which gives the deepest penetration, is with her on her side, left leg held up and me kneeling over her outstretched right leg. This 90 degree twist between our parts helps to move the unnecessary bits like legs out of the way from each other so that her legs and mine don't keep the important bits further apart than necessary.

We haven't even had much success with doggy-style, as I feel like we only get about an inch of penetration, or about to the corona of my glans.

Keep trying different positions - you will find the one that works best for you and your partner. I would encourage you to try the one described above as it allowed for max penetration for my wife and myself.

Figured out how to copy and paste links. If memory serves correctly my doctor told me it could take 18 months to 2 years for every thing to work out

Hope these help explain what I was referring to

Thx. Very encouraging. I’ll get back on a daily pumping regimen. Hopefully the few months I was kinda dormant won’t have a lasting impact on further expansion.

What was your length and girth immediately before implant? That is, during an erection - assuming you could get an erection by whatever means, extreme stimulation, pills, injections, suppositories or Vacuum Erection Device (V.E.D.) and realizing that an erection inside a VED is larger than what you can expect from internal -implant or natural- means.

If you lost size during an extended period of E.D. it may or may not be recoverable, but certainly will take time. Recently lost size can be recovered quickly, but even that is not guaranteed. There are medical studies in published medical journals that do give certifiable hop. You should, however, keep your expectations realistic.

I gained a lot of length and an inch in girth just by cycling twice a day for 30 minutes each time for 29 months. :)

I guess it was said here many many times, no cycling = no increase in length.
Also, if you don't use it you lose it.
My advice is to go to cycling very aggressively, at least twice a day and one hour of cycling every time. You pump until it hurts, wait for few minutes then try to pump again.

One hour??? I can barely hold it for 30 min, and now I am supposed to go for an hour??? <sigh> I guess if I want what I had, I will work up to it fast. At this time, that is not going to happen, as my ball sac gets sore.
