How long to wait after implant surgery to inflate?

Postby Dared24 » Mon Feb 05, 2018 11:50 am

Dr Kramer said I could inflate and resume sex at 3 weeks. I am trying to decide whether to wait 3 weeks or 4. I feel no pain or discomfort right now and as far as I can tell the incision is healed up. This Wednesday February 7 will be 3 weeks since my surgery. I'd like to get some opinions from those who have been through the recovery already.

Apologies I haven't gone through recover yet (implanting tomorrow)
BUT most advice on here I've seen is listen to your doc.

Inflate at their suggested times.

Now they can't force you to have sex lol. I would say that's more on your own time.
But inflation schedules or cycling is an important part of healing.

I'll let others speak but wanted to give what help I could.

Also congrats on becoming bionic...

Oh and Larry will tell you to create a signature with some info like when implanted, ed history, etc.

Yeah and he doesn't have an implant. Unless you like pain it will be more like 4 or 5 weeks.

The way I see it I can't go wrong by waiting longer but I can go wrong by inflating too soon so if there is a question of whether it's safe or not I will wait.

Your body will tell you if it is too soon.

Dr K has seen your interior and rendered his opinion on how to handle your anatomy,

Your other questionm about potentially downsides of waiting too long. "Pseudo-capsule" is a term on which you might do well to perform a search in FrankTalk.

By all means be cautious. But Dr Kramer is VERY GOOD about answering enailed questions quickly. He will give you the assurance and guidance you seek, I am sure.

There isn't a standard answer. Each of us had a slightly different surgical experience and heal at different rates. In my case I had a Penoscrotal incision but also had Scrotoplasty surgery at the same time so my incisions and stiches were more extensive. I started gently masturbating at three weeks but my surgeon asked me to wait until 5 weeks to have seX.

I recall at 4 weeks my glans was slightly tender from the cylinder tips so I imagine sex would have been uncomfortable. By the fifth week that sensation was gone. In case you have not read it in some posts, it seems a lot of guys (and their partners) prefer sex when the implant is not fully pumped. For me and my wife we both agree about 75-80% inflated is a better feeling.

Best wishes,
Greg

Thanks for the information I will try to listen to my body. I had very minimal swelling and pain was pretty much gone after a week. I think I probably heal quickly because I am young. Additionally Kramer is a very good surgeon which I'm sure makes a difference in the healing process.

What are you talking about Pseudo-capsul? I searched the forum and could not come to a conclusion what it is..

Here is a link to a summary of the paper I found online that made me think of mentioning it here.

While it is only a summary (I dan't find the full article just now) it does ratify the concept of cycling for the first six months after implant (or longer) and as soon as possible after the implant.

Hint: You misspelled "pseudo-capsule", which is probably why you did not find the several mentions it has had on the implants section of FrankTalk. The phrase "coffin effect' also refers to the same condition.

This part is funny to me: "The pseudo capsule limits the dimension of the penis and the prosthesis can only move like a “sliding door” inside it forward during activation and backward when it is deactivated. The result is a larger penis in flaccid state but smaller in erect phase."
