Still painful.........

Postby LVhome » Fri Feb 16, 2018 12:39 pm

I have a question for the guys who have already had implant surgery. I am now closing in on 3 months post surgery. I have a Coloplast Titan. I still have considerable pain when I inlflate to maximum firmness while cycling. I thought I would certainly be pain free at this point in my recovery.

Is this normal in many men's experience 3 months after surgery? Is so, at about what point post op were you pain free while inflating to maximum firmness?

Thanks guys.

I'm at 9 weeks now, also a Titan from Dr Eid. I have no pain while cycling to max, but I do have aching in the glans afterwards when flaccid. No pain other than the glans aching. I cycle about every other day in the shower.

Where exactly is your pain?

I had some minor pain when fully inflating from the four week mark when I started cycling until about six weeks. The pain was in my glans. For about another month after that I would say there was very mild discomfort. By the third month through now at almost five months post-op, I have no pain at all.

I hope your pain goes away soon.

I am just over 9 weeks with a Titan and I have some discomfort but it graduklay reduces. Hang in there. My pain is more when I’m deflated and the tubes seems to lie awkwardly. Inflated at max is fine
Now Implanted 9/12/17. 52 years old with ED for over 20 years. Tried all the pills and injections. Update. Implanted with Titan 22 + 1. by DR Ralph Dec 9th London. Now in recovery and at 3 months feeling the journey was worth the pain.

From what I have read, your pain (if it is no different un quality from what you experienced at earlier cycling) is a good thing. It means you are still stretching your penile tissues. That is, still getting larger (most likely in girth rather than length).

Are you tracking your measurements over time?

Warren, no pain in the glans or when I deflate. Pain seems to radiate from the same spot. On the right side of my shaft. As soon as I deflate, pain is gone.

I see Dr Eid in a week and a half for my 3 month follow up. Hopefully, he has some answers for me.

Lost sheep, that's certainly a positive way to look at it! No, I've not been tracking my measurements. I need to start doing that.

I was experiencing pains on the sides of the shaft from the "dog ear" folds in the cylinders during my first month. Can you feel for a pointy fold at the painful spot? My guess is that's what you are feeling. The good news is that pain has almost completely disappeared in the past few weeks. Can't explain it but things improved everyday.
