Bad News

Postby Limpbizcit » Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:24 pm

Hello bros! After 8 weeks my implant is gonna need to be removed. There is fluid coming from beneath the incision. No fever, puss, or pain. I'm currently on antibiotics, but it seems inevitable. To say I am down in the dumps about it is an understatement.
Age 47. ED for over 20 years. Diagnosed with Hypogonadism. Pills and trimix do not work consistently. Implanted with 24cm AMS CX 12/12/17. Infected implant removed and replaced with AMS Spectra 2/18/18. Implanted with 26CM Titan 10/02/18. So far so good.

Did you research your surgeon before hand?

Limpbizcit;

I know exactly what you are going through. Get your chin up. They will remove it and you will wait for 6 months, they will implant you and everything will be great. What happened to us is incredibly rare and we can't let it keep us down. I have now been implanted and everything is just great. Hang in there, you'll see. :) Don't let people blame your surgeon, this unfortunate chain of events does not necessarily mean he made a mistake.

There are no platitudes to make this pretty. It sucks! Having said that, your two options are sack up or pack up.

See the doc; work out a plan; get it done. We are all here to support you in good times and bad. Prayers for quick resolution, easy healing, and the grace that conquers anger. That is all.

Who says revision is inevitable? What has analysis of this fluid revealed? Does the implant inflate and deflate?

Anticipation of what comes in the future is good, but preservethe options you have in your mind. Don't get ahead of yourself.

The fluid hasn't been a analysed. It's watery, scentless and slight yellow tinge. All was well up until last sunday. I noticed the fluid in my underwear and went to the doctor that Monday. He has not analysed the fluid. I'm gonna give the antibiotics a few more days and then I will make plans to remove it if the situation doesn't improve.

And the implant does inflate and deflate with no problem or pain.
