Day 3 Post-Op: 1/27/2023 830am:
Took my 1st bath post-op and it felt GREAT!
Not sure why doc said I should take 2 showers and 2 baths every day. I'm more a bath than shower guy.
May take 3 baths/day & 1 shower b4 "hitting the sack" aka "going to bed for you who know what I mean but don't like the sound of "hitting the sack."
The swelling in my "sack" has finally started to drop and most of the dead skin (have to ask the doc about that) that developed on my scrotum was easily removed in the tub. Still some dead skin on the scrotum and some on the glans which should also come off w/more baths. I applied a mineral oil based lotion to the glans & scotum to restore moisture & flexibility to the skin there.
Also much easier to pull/position the pump while in the warm water, which loosens everything up. My pump is positioned exactly between and slightly behind the "boys." I've been pulling it down (as much as possible) each time I pee, shower and, now, bathe and the pump bulb is as far down as it's going to go. Just need to keep doing this to keep it that way.
I think I can feel where the deflate button is but still not sure about that. Swelling and normal tissue in the sack makes discerning it difficult. Won't know unless/until I can actually try to push what I think is the button to find out whether it's it or not.
One of the claimed advantages in Dr. Eid's videos was that the Classic Titan was that the deflate button is easier to feel/find. The Classic is also supposed to be quicker to inflate but it's also more noisy. Eid also prefers the in-line positioning of the Classic's tubes better than the triangular orientation of the One-Touch which causes more problems in the One-Touch than in the Classic per Eid. Won't know myself unless I get a revision w/a Classic which I'd ask for it any tubing problems develop w/the One-Touch.
Asked my doc about the Classic but he only wanted to implant the One Touch and saw no need to use the Classic.
I thought the main advantage of the One-Touch was that you just had to touch the button once in order to deflate the implant but when the PA was deflating it to 70% (86% is what I measured) she said you had to hold the button down to deflate. So, I'm confused about that now but it will be clarified as soon as I can start cycling.
While my dick still "looks" shorter (because of the swelling & only partial inflation), the girth looks visibily bigger even partially inflated. I was 5.5" around b4 surgery and it was 6" around when I measured it this morning.
While length is impressive to look at, most women's vaginas (like most men's dicks are only 6" deep/long), so the extra length doesn't help when the dick is inserted in the vagina. In fact, too much length can be painful for the woman if you're pounding her cervix w/it and unsatisfying for the man because you can never be fully inserted and touch pube to pube which was always one of the most existing parts of f*cking for me.
So, assuming I keep my original 5 3/4" (and maybe increase it a bit more w/time), the extra girth provided by the Titan should be a welcomed surprise for my GF. Well see . . .
