As I understand it the incisions on the tunica would not have stitches because that would defeat the purpose of the incisions which is to relax the scar tissue.  In my case at least there were also no stitches in the skin other than the vertical scrotal incision which was large enough to give access to the base area if the penis that needed the incisions.  I don't even have a slight trace of a scar at this point.  I was however more sore on the one side of the base of my penis after surgery.

I will present a couple of questions to Dr. Eid about this issue and report back to the forum.

there are carvertomes specifically made for this purpose. I think they have merit in their use. I do not have a picture at hand but they look very much like a wood rasp. Next month will be 2 years in on my implant and I do not think that manual manipulation along with a Titan alone can handle the toughest scar tissue. Dr. Kramer told me he had considered inflating me to 100% after surgery but "thought the pain would be cruel".  On afterthought now I think with a good roughing up of scar tissue, that would have made perfect sense for an exacting straight dick.

Figured out w cialis or viagra my glans has full engorgement and girth rounds out due to engourgement of corpus spongiosum.  Now almost at original 6.75”.  Sensitivity has returned and now can usually easily orgasm.  Someone asked for updated pics, so if interested see: http://www.peyroniesforum.net/index.php/topic,10616.msg100640.html#msg100640

Man... I've seen the pictures... Such a dramatic improvement! Congrats, I am stunned! I would never say you had surgery just by looking at the last picture!! :o amazing how you have no bulges or humps. Did you regained some length, or you basically maintained?

Before surgery I regained lost length from peyronies by VED, traction & supplements.  Post surgery now—no lost length from presurgery.

 Hey Tony! I was thinking the other day in your situation. Now that a good amount of time has passed and you are fully healed, what do you have to say about your penis? Pre peyronies VS implant? How about the bulge post full deflation vs how it used to be?

Hello pfract, I’m quite happy with my post surgery dick.  It’s close to my pre-peyronies state and 1000% better than with peyronies.  The hang has lessened, and therefore the bulge but certainly a shower rather than grower.  Pics here: http://www.peyroniesforum.net/index.php?topic=10616.msg107716#msg107716
PS, pics show deflated but also, with 1-2 pumps as that’s where I tend to have it which minimizes the dog ears.

Hey... I'm thinking... Would you have any issues tucking your penis sideways like at a 65/70 angle to the left on your boxers? Flaccid, I mean. Or it tries to stay straight on all the time unless you tug it to whatever side you feel like?

It looks perfect Tony. Give it a few more months and the dog ears will be no issue any more. I think a couple of pumps like you are doing helps condition your implant and weenie so they stay smooth over time.  Cheers man. Great outcome and posts.

New development.
Dr Karpman placed my tips nicely uniform and high in the glans.  Now, after full healing one has shifted down lower than the other.  Anyone ever heard of this happening?  I’ll give him a call tomorrow of course.

Hey Tony! You meant Dr Karpman?I only heard and read about erosion through the glans. Is it possible that with cycling you have regained some size and that caused the area at the perineum to become looser? Do you have any pain or discomfort? How do you feel about emailing Dr Kramer in Baltimore about this?

Oops, I incorrectly said kramer rather than Karpman.  I’ll call him tomorrow.  Can’t understand why the size may have changed only for one side.

I’ve read a little more and apparently this can happen if a bit of curve returns and can be remedied by adding a RTE.

I have no real input on this but wish you the best and am very interested in your updates.

Does it seem problematic at all in either feel, sensation, pain, or aesthetics?

I have read the same. I have a left curve and my left cylinder tip withdraws down to glans level when deflated. It feels to me the withdrawal goes all the way down to tubing exit level. When I start pumping it back up, it feel like the crunching I feel and shift that starts to push the tip back is at the tubing exit from the cavernosa level. Do you feel a crunch when yours moves back in place?

Update 10 months post up.
Post surgery and after regular daily cycling my inflated BPE length is 6.5”.  I have definitely regained all my pre-peyronies length.

Yes, AMS CX due to peyronies (more rigid than LX).

Great news Tony. Glad you went to a reputable doctor. The CX was the right decision and sometimes on revision, people are able to go to the LGX if things remain straight and they need more girth

For others wondering why the CX; it is more rigid and has limited expansion.  The LGX expands in 2 directions but being so, imagine a balloon deflated. Wrap some tape or your hand around the middle of the deflated balloon, then inflate it.  It will inflate on each side of the tape but the tape section will still be skinny. That is what the scar tissue does when you have a pinched penis section or Peyronies on one side. The CX has a more rigid and controlled inflation profile to deal with this situation. Cheers all and again Tony, I am thrilled you have regained your length.  Nesbit and such procedures just add to the scar profile if you ever need an implant and shorten.

A bit of a set back.  The pump is apparently somewhat defective.  After 5 minutes or so of use I need to add 3-5 pumps to return to max inflation.  Apparently with pressure there’s some back flow.  I’m looking of having it replaced w a Titan for a few reasons.  It’s more rigid and w intercourse I’ve always found it not quite stiff enough, a smaller pump, and cylinders that round out more.  Will keep all posted.

Thanks all, Dr Karpman is seeking insurance approval for the revision surgery.  I’m quite hopeful and encouraged recovery will be much quicker as I will not need the degloving, excision and grafting as before.  I’ll keep you posted.  Thank goddess for the miracles of modern medicine and that I have good insurance 😊

Good luck my friend.  Since the actual implant has a life-time warranty for the device is there and issue with going with asking your insurance to pay for a different brand?

It's very sad to read the new updates on your story tony. Hopefully it goes much smoother now once you get your revision. You will also be like Alibaba, that had the two implants installed.

Is it out of the question to travel to see either Dr. Kramer or Dr. Eid? i know you are confident with your doctor, but i wondered for a little bit.

No, I explained I was disillusioned  w AMS given pump problem.  He’ll do the Titan, but guys will essentially have to explain it’s all their interested in.  I understand Dr Kramer also prefers AMS.
