Can you feel the implant when flacid?

Postby Notgivingup » Mon Sep 09, 2019 9:54 pm

My implant surgery is scheduled for October 22. I am wondering whether you can feel the implant when you are just going about your daily business?

I don't feel the implant unless I make certain movements (mostly it is when the pump and tested get jammed up in close quarters. Otherwise, two years postoperative, this is my new natural state.

But I can certainly palpate the deflated inflatable tubes and tell that that is what they are. And I can feel the tips and some of the tubing. And of course, the pump and bulb are obvious to my fingers.

16 months post op and the time i notice it is when i jumo in and out of the car - I find i have to adjust its position or the glan presses straight out and is uncomfortable.I start with it deflated and tucked in sideways but the movement of going in/ out of the car moves it.

I'm 4 months post-operation. Yes, I can feel the implant when it is flacid, and I can feel, not see the wrinkles in the Titan unit. I no longer notice the feel of the weight of it compared to pre-implant. I also feel it in my jeans and underwear and have to carry him in the up to the left position.

I only feel mine when my penis gets bunched up inside my clothes so the cylinder tips are pushing against the inside of my glans. It doesn’t hurt, but isn’t the most comfortable.

Your question can also be taken as to whether or not a hand touching your penis can feel it. I feel it because I know what my dick felt like prior to the implant. When I have done show and tells I have been told by others how natural it feels, both inflated and deflated.

I only feel mine when I'm holding my penis to pee. Otherwise, nope. :)

Yes, but only because I have a "package" now. I'm always looking down there, it is so nice to see something. I WAS a grower big time, less then an inch flaccid to 5.5" erect. Now I'm a shower, 4" flaccid and still 5.5" erect. Other then that, without having my hands on my dick, it really does not "feel" any different. I only have one testicle, the left, so the pump is on the right side, which helps fill out my sack and helps with my package.

The first couple of months I definitely felt it when sliding across a car seat. I also felt it most when bending forward to put on socks and shoes. After a few months it becomes your new normal and you rarely notice it. Obviously as has been pointed out you can always feel it with your fingers. In my case it was never really truly uncomfortable and two years out now I'm rarely ever aware of it. I wish to hell these titanium rods in my spine were as easy to ignore! Nine months after the surgery to fuse my spine from below my shoulder blades to my hip bones and I still have extreme pain everytime I'm not completely stationary. Thankfully though it doesn't prevent me having sex in any way. Humans are great at adapting to artificial body changes.

Another CXer here.
I can feel the cylinders if I squeeze junior. What I don't like is the persistent kink(s). I hope that problem goes away before they break through. Kinda kidding, I've never heard of that happening.
