Dangers of staying inflated for hours

Postby Bizzmann » Sun Feb 21, 2021 1:12 pm

Bionic brothers,
Can’t seem to find any info on danger/complications from staying inflated for lengthy periods (4-5 hours). I know my “conservative” surgeon probably wouldn’t recommend it. As I lost 2 inches in length, hoping staying inflated will help (along with using VED at times). Any advice appreciated.

I have no idea if it's recommended, but I do it sometimes.
I'd guess if it doesn't hurt or get too cold, it may not be a problem.

Two issues I am certain are factors (and there may be others) are constricting the blood flow and compressing the tissues. Bot are bad to do if odne too much. How much is too much? I don't know.

I have fallen asleep after sex and left mine inflated for 5 - 7 hours and didn't feel like there was a problem. But I never pump mine up to the max. Doesn't make since to because I really don't gain any length or girth when I do. But that's just me.

Well I had my implant 1/20 and the doc pumped me up a bit to retain the upward position for healing. But I am about 1/2 at attention and it gets quite painful in pants in public. Talk about pumped for a prolonged period... how about being semi- erect for 5 weeks 24 hours a day. I can’t wait for my follow up and pumping instructions. The 1st thing I want is to release the pump for a little relief. Sure it’s nice to have a little retention in clothes until you has a a half of a painful woody for 5 weeks straight,

First of all you need follow your doctors orders until fully healed and released. Usually 3 months and you are are past that but I needed to get that out of the way as a disclaimer. As I am not a doctor and can only give you my own understanding of what I have read and gone through.

What you are attempting to do is stretch the tissue and cylinders. You really do not need to do both long pump adding inflations and VED stretching. One or the other will do the same thing. The information I have read is VED will work quicker. This is the instructions from a recent paper: Starting 3 weeks after discharge,
patients were asked to use a vacuum device for a 12-week
period (Medis®, Vacuum Therapy Devices, Milan, Italy and
Osbon ErecAid®, Vacuum Therapy System, Collierville,
TN, USA) without the constriction ring for 5 min twice
daily after full device inflation was achieved.

This is the publication link: https://irp-cdn.multiscreensite.com/d88 ... action.pdf

Some thing that should be noted about that paper is that all men in the study had early activation and as the well known FL doctor on that paper uses Infrapubic incision and I am guessing the incision was far enough from the base of the shaft to permit early VED use. And even though that doctor is said to be a Coloplast only doctor all men in the study like you and I had LGX devices.

I did not use VED therapy. I used pump adding inflation. Where I would add or force additional pumps after 3-5 minutes and repeat. This for an hour each day. And I had improvements out past 1 year.

What you are looking to do is feel a bit of stretching. But you do not want pain. You need to be careful with a VED not to pump fast. The fine capillaries can be damaged if you pump to fast as they cannot move the blood fast enough and you need to keep from pumping up to much vacuum. Using your LGX like I did you pump until you feel stretching and wait until that improves and then add or force addition pumps or partial pumps. 2 30 minute session a day I think would be better but I did some one hour ones. And I did fall asleep at night several times with this. When I woke up I did deflate.

I think it is best if you deflate after 30 minutes to an hour or so. If you are doing a long all night sex session or stretching. Just take at least a 5 minute break to deflate and the inflate again to release the pressure. Another way to use VED is in this publication: https://augustams.com/how-to-use-a-peni ... -exercise/ Step 1:

Apply lubricant around the open end of the cylinder, head of the penis, and 2 inches inside the cylinder.

Step 2:

While standing, Place the penis in the cylinder and establish a good seal between the body and the cylinder. (In some cases it might be necessary to trim down the pubic hairs a bit to make skin contact in order to create a strong seal.)

Step 3:

Use the one finger activated ultra-ease mechanism to squeeze the lever 3 times and slowly count to 10 (for the battery-operated vacuum head press down on the button for 5 seconds, release the button, and slowly count to 10) repeat this process until the head of the penis lifts-up from the bottom of the cylinder and you have achieved full penile engorgement.

Step 4:

Hold the fully engorged erection without movement inside the cylinder for 3-5 minutes.

Step 5:

Press the round black release button and hold it until the vacuum leaves the cylinder and the penis returns to a flaccid or non-erect state. Keep the cylinder firmly placed against the body making sure you have maintained the seal between body and cylinder. Repeat steps 3 through 5.

In one session create, maintain, and release 3-5 erections before removing the penis from the cylinder.

Clean cylinder with light soap and warm water, wipe negative pressure device with a damp cloth and store the device.

This demonstrates my statement about pumping a VED slowly and using just enough vacuum. Of course this was not for implanted men that already have fully pumped and have an erection to start with. So it is best to have a VED with a gauge to watch so you can make sure you don't create to much vacuum. This also fits the the first study I linked to.

The thing to understand is more is not better in this case. More can actually be worse. As you can cause damage that can result in loss. I was over a year until I reached my current length. So gains are very slow and a lot of work. Others have posted quicker results with VED but it still takes months. You just need to resume your cycling routine with some changes. No need to double up if you miss a session or day.

Like I said I am not doctor and you can read the papers I have linked to and decide for yourself.

Good luck with this.

Don't know for sure. Shots nor oral meds would work for me by the time I started treatment. I am still just under 1" shorter than VED prior to surgery which was the same as my youthful healthy length and bit larger in girth. I never had an induced erection prior to surgery for a measurement. Being I was right at 7" in my healthy youth I had hoped for 6.5 and set my target for a minimum of 6 and I did reach that with just a tad over at max inflation. But I have problems with my cylinders and never had both cylinders working the same to help stretch with cycling. So it seems very realistic to me that I could have gained back more if I had both cylinders working the same. I went weeks after activation with only my left cylinder inflating. My surgeon advised he could fix the problem but refused to see me to do so and gave me a fix and just kept telling to keep trying. My local Uro's had no clue. After my surgeon finally admitted he had no idea what to do I contacted a well known AMS rep and was given a fix that mostly worked. Now my right cylinder inflates faster and the left does not do much at all help with stretching. I was able to use it for sex with a partner but I do have some pain when doing so.

I've cycled my LGX one hour daily to the threshold of pain and at almost 10 months post-op, I'm pleased to report that I've gained 1/2 inch in both length and girth. The commitment and "hard" work paid off for me.
As for the dangers of staying inflated for hours, I do not recommend falling asleep that way, especially if you toss and turn! However, if you fall asleep and stay asleep with your inflated cock snugly placed inside your partner's pussy (etc.), I think the warm, moist environment is perfect for your pecker's longtime inflation!

Wow! I am in pain by 45 min, but not so much so that I could not hang on for 15 more minutes, so 4 or 5 hours???
