FIRST POSTING,, BUT 2ND SURGERY WITHIN A YEAR

Postby thedriver » Tue Jan 26, 2021 9:56 am

My story may help someone here,, I was in a accident over 20 years ago, and while in a back brace I developed priapism and did not go in right away,, I struggled over the next 20 years with this due to no insurance,, very understanding wife that stood by me thru it all,, Finally retired and used my insurance to go thru my first surgery and this is how it went,,
My first surgery was conducted in May of last year, all went fine as expected, then November of last year while cycling the implant it suddenly deflated,, something went wrong,, called the Mayo clinic and they confirmed it sounded like a malfunction of the implant and to make an appointment to have revision surgery done,, so my quest started all over again,, just when I thought things were going good and healing up well I had to do it again,
Dr, Kohler at the Mayo in Rochester said this happens less than 1% of the surgeries within the first 5 years,, but mine happened within 6 months,
There is so much to go over to tell the whole story of these 2 surgeries that I will forget things to bring up,, so please ask me any questions you may have,,
I just had my revision surgery done this past Friday,, 4 days ago and feeling great with no regrets,, I know I am just skimming over what I went thru,, so please ask any and all questions you may have,, they replaced the pump, cylinders and tubing,, they left the resevoir implanted under my belt line due to it only being 6 months old,, I'm sure I left out alot of things here,, so please ask me anything you want,,, my story might be of help to someone I hope.

Me too! I belong to the 1% club, lol.
I had 3 surgeries within 8 mos.!
1st one, Aug. 2019- infection
2nd one, Dec. 2019- to correct infection (they gambled and lost), was implanted with malleable, malleable had to come out!
3nd one, March 2020, right before total lockdown. This Dr. was pissed at me because he put in a Titan classic and valves are bars on both sides, difficult to deflate.

Single, but never got to use 3-piece or malleable, except for whacking off.
I was robbed! I am definitely missing a lot!

3rd op, finally got to use it and shot my load in someone's ass...after 7 months with implant!

For both of you, Did they use pre connected kits on the first one. Obviously if they re used the reservoir it was not pre connected. What went wrong with them?

Well, this time around, since you have FT, things should go smoother. You have a resource now (I too, took the plunge before finding this site).
Have a bag of frozen peas handy, VERY loose fitting clothes (or walk around nekkid), no pets or young toddlers around to jump on you :lol: , and if you have things pop up, you can ask on here. Good luck!

Those are some good tips that I didn't take seriously the first time around,,
also keep elevated and pointing upward,
Tylenol,, ice,, all help with swelling,,,
taking the meds on time,,
get ahead of the pain,,
keep things clean, clean , clean,,
warm soapy water everyday in the shower,,
tomorrow will be post op, day #7 and I feel better right now than the first surgery 3 weeks in.. water is a natural healer when it comes to the humane body...
