Day 9
I feel like there’s small pieces of progress every day and if I look back a few days they are definitely adding up. Cycling is a challenge as every day the goal is to pump till you can’t stand the pain or the ball is to hard to squeeze. Well in reality too hard to squeeze is some what suggestive. Kind of like I can probably get another pump out. it’s pretty hard and if it goes flying its going to hurt like hell should I risk it or just wait,  here in agony for the next fifteen minutes . You try to justify things. You think to yourself that you’ve already increased your pumps from 30 the day before to 33 that night to now 36 this morning is it really worth the risk I’ll try for 37 tonight .
The worst part of the last few days by far was I got Constipated. The constipation caused me to develop a hemorrhoid. I’ve had mild hemorrhoids before neverbeen a problem but this one hurts like hell so what It does is Aggravate the ability to find a way to sit. When  you  options are limited due to the fact that you can’t sit on your scrotum and you can’t sit on your ass it boils down to the fact you just can’t sit which becomes a pain in the ass. On that note I will go for a walk.

I'm anxious to hear how your walk went.  Something about walking felt great to me, especially since  my options were walking or laying in bed :)


Oh, Not to step on your progress topic but MY TITAN TOUCH PUMP FINALLY DEFLATED AS ADVERTISED THIS MORNING FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE SURGERY   WOOOOHOOO!

I finally caught up to you.  Now we will see if it was a fluke or another thing to check off my list.

Went for a walk with my sons dogs this morning about a  mile no problem walking only issue is trying to find a comfortable position to put it in straight up no good if you bend down to get the ball it gets scrunched. If it’s out straight it’s not hanging quite enough off to the side feels weird . In a perfect world it would be better without any underwear or pants just out in the open. But there are a lot of squirrels gathering nuts at this time of the year you would need to be on gaurd. Being out driving is not too bad the biggest problem is sitting and finding a place to put this new THING it’s too early to put it where it belongs.  “But like the rabbi said at the circumcision it won’t be long now“ till it’s  back in the saddle.

I have very soft spot in my heart for that poor squirrel I know exactly how he feels.
Day 10
I’ve learned a few things in the 7 days since I was activated cycling is painful deflating is painful
Inflating is painful surgery is painful in all of these events there’s one thing that we git our teeth for. The ability to be able to enjoy sex again.
A few tips I’ve learned along the way.
1. Find the best doctor you can this will reduce all of the above. Get it right the first time.
2. A facecloth lightly wrapped on the scrotum gives you a better grip less pain
3. In the morning after Your in the tub and inflated get out go to the shower shave wash up it takes your mind off the pain of just sitting in the tub watching the seconds tick by
4. If you have a Titan deflate it all the way then two small pumps to lock the reservoir you can do it with one but the second will leave a bit of fluid in the cylinders that way the sharp corners from the dog ears won’t dig in.
5. Don’t be afraid to take a pain pill that’s why you have them but don’t just take them because there there..
6. Make friends with someone that’s been down the road not to long before you their experience can save you a lot of anxiety.
7.  Patience and more of the same it’s not going to improve overnight it’s small  increments.
8. Remember when you were a teen those days of constant erections were painful also.
9. When you first put it in that warm wet p~$$% remember that that’s why we did this.

When I had the first 2 horrible days behind me riding for 4+ hours immediately after surgery and climbing a flight of stairs to the bedroom, then another 4 or 5 days laying in a tub of hot water 2 or 3 times a day in August cycling my implant, my wife looked at me one day a said, "You must really like p~$$%".  :)

FloppyNoMore,

You mentioned some uncomfortable dogear bends or folds when deflated.  This is part of the break-in period.  To give some perspective, I can literally bend my penis in half and squeeze it.  (Don't try that yet)  :)

As you heal and cylinders soften, the combination will have you free of all discomfort in several weeks.  The discomfort will begin to ramp down before that but it is a process, not an event.  Remember my earlier post before surgery. "Dr. Eid and time are going to fix you."  Dr. Eid has done his job, now it is just a matter of time.

Day  11
15 cycles so far. I have been following the cycling pattern I was prescribed 2 times a day for 15 minutes pump to max. Every time is a little bit different some more painful others are less. The pump sometimes squeezes easily and sometimes very difficult I pumped from 26 to 36 pumps to get to the point I can’t squeeze another pump out. I get most of my pain in the scrotum from the skin not liking to get squeezed. The tips are tender but not sore unless I try to move them around. The most uncomfortable spot by far is deep in the crus. How does this compare with other experience’s?
 I will say that things do improve on a daily basis not a lot but I find myself trying to evaluate the day just before I go to sleep. The physical healing of the incision and bruising is almost complete. It was inspected by wife with a light yesterday and with her medical background as a Dr. she was very impressed.
Things have settled down so much so that it’s comfortable to explore a bit with your fingers and feel the whole array of components. The tubbing seems to be way back that area where it enters the corpa is still very tender to the touch as is the  perineum .
I’m looking forward to a promise of a test drive by no later tha November 29 th my beautiful wife’s 65th birthday.

Hmmmmm,   How long has it been since you had full, erect, intercourse?   I am willing to bet you don't hold out until the 29th. 

I would say your experience seems to pretty closely mirror my experience as far as pain location etc.

Glad to here it’s improving and healing!  Never had pain in the crus or perineum at all.  My pumping to Max was all over the place for a awhile - anywhere from 20-50+...never sure why.  Scrotum def sore w squeezing but eventually toughened up and no longer painful to pump.  Hang in there...it should only get better and better!

Every pump model is known to be glitchy. Any other industry, we would call them junk. Why do we have junk in our junk?  My AMS  would pump 300 pumps and not get anywhere. Once it finally worked it would still vary like yours. It is hard to consistently get a full pump which makes it hard. I had enough days with joint and strength issues this summer that I started to flop my ball sack onto the vanity and push down on the pump and know I have a full pump every stroke. 36 pumps every time it do it with this one.

Day 12
Rather uneventful day drove around to do errands. The biggest issue of the day is control. Controlling where it going to be point to somewhat near an acceptable comfort level. If I start out with it up after I bend down or sit down it moves if I try to put it to one side or the other when I move around it moves If I try to point it down it only stays that way again till I move around. Right now it’s happy place is at 2:45-3:00oclock and that’s fine till you put on a pair of pants. I even tried to super deflate it by squeezing every last bit of fluid I could out. That’s close but still a cigar. Hawk mentioned that it’s to early to bend it over well it’s just about there but not quite. I keep repeating to myself over and over “chill out it’s going to take time”. That’s become the mantra. Just one other issue that keeps reminding me it’s only been 12 days is that it takes a lot longer to build up a callus or kill the nerves in the scrotum where you squeeze the pump because that area is not getting less sensitive unfortunately it’s getting more sensitive. Now I know why they give you all the pain pills it’s not because of the surgery it’s to mask the pain of squeezing the living crap out of your scrotum. I wish there was a remote control.

 Any day now I expect you to say that your scrotum is becoming a little more used to getting smashed between your thumb and a hard pump bulb with ridges.

As Alibaba one said, who would have ever thought the scrotum would get used to this.  It makes you wonder if you zipped your glans up in your zipper every day if it would eventually not even bother you.

I'll  pass on the zipper and the nails and most defiantly don't want anyone trying to pump me up with their teeth. It would be nice if only a bit of discomfort from pumping and if I had been consulted prior to the final design for the no touch pump. The deflate button could have been a little more pronounced not much just a bit higher. Theres one thing that keeps come up every day I have at least two fully usable erections that are going to waste. This will have to stop very soon. on Friday I get the stitches removed and as Dr. Eid says sexual relations can start as soon as 2 weeks after surgery. He also recommends a hot bath to reduce swelling. As I remember from my pre Erectile Dysfunction days after the penis is placed in a warm wet vagina it doesn't take long for the swelling to subside. Its a little coincidental that even though we have multiple bathrooms in our house that when i'm in the middle of one of my twice daily baths I get a visit from my wife. Usually with a big smile she just looks and smiles and excuses herself as if she's checking to see if its done yet.

I had my inaugural entry 21 days after surgery which Dr. Eid told me was the minimum time.  Many of Dr. Eid's patients wait longer.  Some doctors don't even have you cycling your implant at that point.  Myra, One of Dr. Eid's assistants, said I did "not have to do it then if you are still sore because you wouldn't enjoy it anyway."  My response was "Myra,  clearly, you don't have a penis, much less one that can finally get a rock hard erection after a decade of less than optimal erections.  I am pretty sure I will manage to enjoy it".  She laughed. 

I considered taking a pain pill before sex the first time but either forgot or decided against it.  At 21days intercourse worked fine.  The main issues, in the beginning, were any unexpected sideway movements like if your wife were to slip sideways to get further from the edge of the bed.  Even a subtle move of that kind hurt for a moment. Even any sideways pressure that would tilt my penis slightly to the side during foreplay was uncomfortable. Straight, controlled intercourse was great, however.

Day 14
This morning I got the operative Report of my surgery it was emailed to me to pass along to my local Urologist for his records. The day of my surgery I didn't get a chance to see Dr. Eid by the time I was out of recovery he was in the operating room working on his next patient.  Therefore I didn't get a chance to discuss how things went . He had already spoke to my wife and said everything had gone very well.
 From the time right after my prostatectomy in June till the implant I have not been able to achieve an erection. I didn't notice anything that would indicate the development of Peyronie's there were only 5 attempted injections all were so painful and ineffective I didn't bother to continue. The clue was that when I was in the shower I peed and noticed that there was a little turn to the left. Being that my political view is in the right direction I wondered about it but dismissed it. The report from the prostate surgeon said that there was involvement 1 mm from the left capsule and he had to remove nerves on that side.

Here is what I found out from reading Dr. Eid's full report.

 e] Correction of penile angulation.

Examination of the penis with the cylinders fully inflated revealed the presence of a mild curvature to the left. The area of deformaty was determined to be proximal near the base of the penis Using a combination of superficial incisions and blunt modeling of the tunica albuginea, the defect is corrected. Further disection was done to expose the tunica albuginea on the side of the penile shaft near the base the penis. A series of small parallel excisions were made at the level of the corporotomy, and the resulting defect was closed with a running 3-0 PDS suture. An erection was induced again to test the adequacy of the repair. Marked improvement of the shape of the penile shaft was noted. the cylinders were deflated and re inflated and the patient's penis was re-examined. The correction of angulation accomplished, we turned our attention to the next part of the procedure.

When I gave my local Urologist the report he read right through it all five pages before he removed the sutures. His comment on the repair of the Peyronies issue was it took a very experienced surgeon to change course for a few minutes to correct something that he found while testing his work that was not known before hand.
As I sit here on my towels I think that I now have a reason that explains why the left proximal area has been more painful since the surgery there was more trauma in that area cutting and sewing than the other side. I feel fortunate that I chose to go to Dr. Eid had I not picked such an experienced surgeon I could very well have the "leaning penis of Pizza."
By next week I hope to be putting this thing to use.

I agree that this speaks volumes of your surgeon to install an implant, inflate it and could have called it good to go.  So you have a little tilt to one side.  Maybe it will work itself out in time.  Instead, in his perfectionist manner he took extra time and solved the problem before sending you back to NewEngland to discover the imperfection.

This also points to the close link between Peyronies Disease and Erectile Dysfunction.  Often that relationship exists even when the patient was unaware.

I was under the impression that Dr. Eid did not corrected curvature with other than an implant. This is very nice to know. You are also healing well, which is very good. Pretty soon you will be dipping it somewhere... nice... haha  8)

I was thinking about the effort Dr. Eid made to make it perfect.  Says a lot about a doctor who does 3 implants in a day instead of trying to cram 5-7 in a day.  He has the time to not rush.  Wishing you a fabulous recovery.

Ali
When I got the schedule from Janice the date was set as Friday I asked what time the surgery would be, this was back in July. She told me I had first choice I could have 7am 10am or 2pm. So he leaves time in between for unforeseen things that pop up no pun intended. The  attitude of his team is very relaxed. I look forward to see how much he gets compensated for his part of the surgery. I know that from my wife’s experience she would have to make her tee schedule to the Insurance companies up on a yearly basis. Based on codes some of the insurance companies would discount the fees by 65%  it if they found out that you gave a discount for a cash paying patient they would then take that amount off what they paid her. One $300.00 discount ended up
Costing her over $30,000.00 from United, that’s why so many of these doctors try to cram in all that they can. The system is screwed up I think Dr.. Eid has figured out that he is going to do things the way he likes to after 35 years in practice .

Just thought I’d make this statement. I’ve never had a big dick it’s the always done the job 6 inches long on a good day but I’m quite wide I jokingly referred to it as a tuna can . The reality is there are two people that will benefit from my dick one is me and the other is my wife. I really don’t care if it’s a 1/4” this way or that and frankly neither does my wife. Getting all hung up on if I gained this or lost that in the grand scheme of things is a huge waste of time . If you love your wife or partner then the act of sex mixed with love is much more important than I gained this or I lost that. Sex with love is why I what’d this I don’t want some whore to do some kinky act to make me feel like I’m Mr. Macho man I want to have the same Intimate caring love making we have shared for the last thirty five years. That’s what this is about at least for me.

Hey floppy! I don't want by any means to discredit what you wrote there. I understood what you said about making love... I've been in a long term relationship for 6 years.. Not quite as you but still some time. I'm am now single, 32yo, haven't had intercourse in 4 years and I couldn't think more different... Size... Purpose of implant.. How intercourse will be.... What will somebody whom I barely know will think....

Floppy I know you're not worried about the size, but since we both have the same type of implant (titan 20 + 1) can you tell me what your size is now?

If I pump up to the point of pain I’m at 6” length girth 6 3/4” I could not be comfortable having sex like that and I’m sure my wife would not care for it . I haven’t tried it yet but I have been pumping to different levels of hardness I think that when I try it out this coming weekend I’ll pump to about 5 3/4” length and 6 1/2 girth. I don’t plan on anything other than plain vanilla for the first attempt.

For what it is worth, I referred to a full pump as “way too hard for intercourse” when we first used my implant.  Within weeks however, I did start fully inflating for intercourse, so at least in my case it is all relative to how healed I was.

Stopped the Flop, I don't care how hard you pump it, just don't flip flop on us. Political season is over and we would not be able to take any more. Hope you continue to due well. Keep in mind, she can stretch too. Remember, kids come out of that thing! Then they become teenagers and you wish you could stuff them back in. Cheers.

Thanks for posting the post surgical report info Floppy. There was a question about if Dr. Eid performs incisions/excisions as a part of his surgical repertoire. Thank goodness you went to him and bypassed the potential leaning penis you may have had from a less experienced surgeon.

I'm wondering if "A series of small parallel excisions were made at the level of the corporotomy, and the resulting defect was closed with a running 3-0 PDS suture" is the same as placing a graft. It does not sound like it based on the search result for PDS suture below. Here it is:

"PDS II Suture is a sterile synthetic absorbable monofilament suture made from the polyester (p-dioxanone.)

PDS II sutures are intended for use in general soft tissue approximation, including use in paediatric cardiovascular tissue, in microsurgery and in ophthalmic surgery. These sutures are particularly useful where the combination of an absorbable suture and extended wound support (up to six weeks) is desirable.

These sutures, being absorbable, should not be used where prolonged (beyond 6 weeks) approximation of tissues under stress is required or in conjunction with prosthetic devices, for example, heart valves or synthetic grafts."

Hawk, this brings up another potential criteria for your implant surgeons list. I've noticed of the "name brand" urologists CRAM their schedules, seemingly in an effort to see the maximum number of patients in the shortest period of time. Not only doctors who perform implants but other urological procedures as well.

Some of them jump from patient to patient so they can have two patients on the schedule at the same time (Dr. Gelman in CA did this - first he was 50 minutes late for my appointment, then kept disappearing/reappearing with exits from the room.) This was just for an office visit, mind you, but you have to wonder if that carries over to other part of his practice.

I'm not sure how we'd find that out other than our own impressions based on our usage of their practices. But as a patient I don't the idea of "cramming" one bit.

Day 14
This morning I got the operative Report of my surgery
Here is what I found out from reading Dr. Eid's full report.

 e] Correction of penile angulation.

Examination of the penis with the cylinders fully inflated revealed the presence of a mild curvature to the left. The area of deformaty was determined to be proximal near the base of the penis Using a combination of superficial incisions and blunt modeling of the tunica albuginea, the defect is corrected. Further disection was done to expose the tunica albuginea on the side of the penile shaft near the base the penis. A series of small parallel excisions were made at the level of the corporotomy, and the resulting defect was closed with a running 3-0 PDS suture. An erection was induced again to test the adequacy of the repair. Marked improvement of the shape of the penile shaft was noted. the cylinders were deflated and re inflated and the patient's penis was re-examined. The correction of angulation accomplished, we turned our attention to the next part of the procedure.

I have exactly this, exactly the same in my report

Day 17
Not a lot to report today still quite uncomfortable due to the swelling on the left side. I called Dr.Eid today to ask some questions. What I found out is the left side is where he makes his access for the reservoir and that creates a lot of tissue trauma in that area hence there is more recovery time. I also found out that in some patients the antibiotics deplete the natural bacteria on the scrotum that ends up causing a mild fungal infection that causes the itch that i was experiencing there. He prescribe a anti fungal cream to help relieve it. He told me that the healing time for the left is quite bit longer than the right and it could take a couple of months to equalize.I spent the day working in my wood work shop with some discomfort but it was good to be out and doing something i like/

Day 18
Hard to believe that the time has gone by.  In the first few days of the first week it seems like every minute takes a day every day takes a month but as the days build up things start to heal. You don’t notice them as they happen: Then you see a change. This morning I went for my 6 o’clock pump in the tub .  To my surprise I managed 40 pumps to get  to the marble at this point. I sat back and started playing solitaire on my phone . Set the timer after three games of solitaire I looked at the time and I was already in 13 minutes I thought to myself wow doesn’t hurt . I’ve only got a few more minutes to go. I wiggled it around and managed two more Mimi pumps . Times up . Deflate I have been doing better on the deflate issue I find that I now hold in the button for a count of 5. Then I lay back in the tub and take both of my index fingers and place them along the shaft finger tips pointing down. I then bring my legs together to squeeze the shaft the length of my fingers . When the tubes are soft and palpable I move down and do it again and again till I can feel the tubing. One more slide from top to bottom to get out the last drops and that’s it I have not had any auto inflate problems with this method and I don’t squeeze the pump once after.
I have a call into the technical department at Coloplast Titan requesting a hydraulic schematic of the workings of the system. I wonder if I’ll get it.
 3 more days till test flight  (:-)/

Great report.  Oh, I think you owe me money.  I knew you would never wait until her birthday ;)



Your analysis is spot on.  Those first days are pain, discomfort, lack of understanding or vision about how this is going to work or progress.  Then time begins to work its magic.  A great surgeon and time fix you.

Hawk I have bad news I’m going to lose the bet. Things change on a daily basis for example yesterday was by far the most comfortable day since the surgery all day I hardly noticed any discomfort. Around 5 o’clock I started to feel a bit off and of course Started to worry. Not sure what was going on. The first thing that you think of is do I have an infection. No signs of fever no pain in the pump. In fact you would need a high powered microscope to find where the incision was . So what the hell is going on . I text Dr. Eid 3 minuets later he texted me back we go back and forth for Ten minutes end results sounds like a bug virus maybe dehydration. He tells me you’re symptoms don’t look like infection . So I eat a banana drink a bit  of salty water go to bed sleep ok got up tho morning felt better. Talked about how I felt with my wife she said don’t over analyze things . “ want to try that thing out tonight “ sound like a plan so now I won’t be able to concentrate on  anything all day. Men really do think with their dicks😇

Hey,  you are 2 days early, that’s cheating.   ;)

Like you I had a little phobia of infection, who doesn’t.  Dr. Eid told me the first sign is almost always a change in how the pump feels.  The details of the pump are not decernable.  Then pain increase.  He said fever etc are only if the infection has been allowed to go unchecked and you start to go septic.  He said the reason antibiotics NEVER work to save the implant is the body walls off the infection, encapsulates it.

Btw, I had those occasional days were I felt like I slid back.  That is why I tend to say - you might not improve every day but you will see improvement every couple days.

Minor setback yesterday I started to feel very off dizzy nauseous general yuk I called Dr.Eid. He sent me a script for blood work. This morning the results came back everything was perfect no chance Of infection white blood count perfect.Yahoo. But what’s the problem. He said I should go see my GP. I just came back from the appointment. Turns out I have BPPV vertigo. This was most likely caused by spending a lot of time in bed . Apparently there are calcium deposits in your inner ear that regulate balance these so called stones can be jarred loose by sudden moves like getting in and out of bed multiple time a day. I was given a ten day supply of a medication to treat it and was told it’s very likely to be gone in a day or two. So Hawk it looks like it will more than likely be a tie. As the recovery has been right on schedule. That was a total relief

Congratulations !!! 
I felt I needed a hot soak afterward because my scrotum was contracted and I was not used to deflating without a relaxed scrotum. 

It is exciting to see another brother returned to full capacity by a great surgeon and a little time.

It definitely gets better.  I actually had two issues.  I always inflated and deflated in the tub during the first 3 weeks.  That meant that I was dealing with a very relaxed scrotum AND that I was lying down.  The first time I had sex my scrotum was tight and I stood up to deflate.  It served to both make the deflate button difficult to feel through the skin, and disoriented me as to the angle to even find the button.   Now that I have deflated standing close to a hundred times, I know exactly where to slide the thumb of my right hand to settle on the concave grip opposite the button.  I can find it without even thinking about it.

Once you find it standing up just take your hand off and replace it 4 or 5 times until your mind makes note of where it is.  The rest is similar to finger muscle memory when playing a musical instrument.

Seems odd but I recently discovered when my ball sack has disappeared all the way up to my navel after being outside, that I can grab each side of it and stretch it out slowly to loose sack state, then do as I please with the pump.
