Jimmi,
You are such a strong and patient guy.
Thanks for reporting.
It’s interesting, but sex for most of us is such an easy thing when we are young and then we have things happen and things change.
I have had friends that never got really hard in their 30’s and when they would have penetrative sex, they would have to squeeze it in all the time. I on the other hand always got rock hard and never had that problem, until I broke my penis and everything went downhill for years with no solution in sight. Now I pump it, and I can do it without even touching my penis. I get my spouse all wet and we do it. I would say for 10 years I had problems off and on.
So what I am getting to, is I am trying to understand your patience. What you have may not be ideal, but it’s certainly hard.
I think I would stuff it and make it work as you are. You are the man.
I would be firm with the new surgeon and Be sure he has the care to fix this to give you the best outcome. Are you pumping to maximum?

I would not want a surgeon to make his mind up on my implant before I was in surgery.  Otherwise, he is fitting you to a preconceived size he estimated.  He should measure you in the OR, have several implants at his disposal and match the implant to you.

Best wishes.

Thanks both for your input.

The aim of the implant was not to get a perfect penis, we all know an implant is never going to be the same as a blood-filled erection but I guess everyone who goes down the implant route expects, or certainly hopes for the best possible outcome, especially when it is paid for out of pocket and not via insurance like you guys over the pond.

The implant works, and it works very well actually. Us Bionic brothers can do things which no one with a natural penis can do and I find that very exciting. For me, my issues are both an aesthetic issue and a practical issue. When fully inflated the top 20-25% of the penis droops and just doesn't look right. I can't send 'sexy pics' to my girlfriend as it just looks a bit weird. Practically, the sex is really good, and I'd choose what I have no over what I had immediately pre-op in a heartbeat. However, because of the floppiness, certain positions, like her on top, are difficult as it is difficult to penetrate. That alone doesn't warrant a revision, but both these combined with the constant fear of erosion and the tips breaking through the skin in my eyes warrant a revision. I'm a perfectionist by nature. but I do also have to consider my diabetes and the fact that I am more prone to an infection.

I have faith in my new surgeon, he has since told me he will measure me on the operating table, which gives me confidence, so currently I am going down the revision route, probably in February/March next year.

I know that any revision is harder for the surgeon but easier for the patient. Why is that? Any ideas of recovery time compared to an initial surgery? I took 6-8 weeks before I felt healed enough to walk properly and start wearing normal clothes. Can I expect/hope for this to be halved if the surgery went well?

Thanks as always

This whole thread has been a great read. Thanks for sharing it all so candidly. I have had Peyronies for 5 years and have managed it through diet (carnivore/keto) and light traction. I was told when diagnosed it was the most impressive case he had seen which was a word I did not want to hear at all at the time!

The way you seem to have handled it in dating is similar to me and to me and it really forces you to not give a crap as much as possible and also learn that it is you making a deal of it and not your partner. Or you letting it affect your confidence, I mean.

I was very surprised to read you got such a good surgeon in the UK. Was it all on the NHS and how long did you have to wait?
I can have sex a few times a night, but not like I used to. I am currently ok with the situation but reading your post has given me a great sense of relief in that if it got worse I could possibly go a similar route to you.

Hey Fairfaxology,

I'm not convinced i did find a 'great surgeon' or certainly i don't think i got a fantastic outcome, but whatever the outcome, i am in a far far far better position now than pre-implant. i self funded and it cost me £13k.

I was set on a revision with David Ralph after a consult with him and an MRI which showed me to be between 1-2cm short. In recent weeks he has backtracked a little and doesn't think I am hugely undersized and has recommended I leave things as they are as it works very well and with the added complication of a revision coupled with my diabetes he doesn't think the gain vs risk is worth it. I have been worried, almost to the point of being obsessed, about erosion and the tips, which I can feel very prominently, breaking through the skin. He has assured me this will not happen so for the moment at least, I am happy as things are.

On a slightly more positive note, I have smashed past the 6' marker! My size has never been my number one priority, but having read a lot of journals and assessing the correlation between implant size and length, my heart sank when i was told I 'only' had an 18cm, especially when I was close to 8' in my prime. I was resigned to being less than 5' but this goes to show that with cycling and the right anatomy implant size and length do not always go hand in hand.

  Good luck, i'm having mine tomorrow in london. Lets share our recovery stories as we'll be at the same stages together. I'm really nervous tbh and i've managed to aggravate a plaque overdoing traction and VED trying to maximise size. My surgeon told me to stop last week when i told him, but it's still a bit sore. I'm hoping it doesn't effect the surgery.


Please can you share your latest recovery stories, and which stage are you in now? how did the surgery go?

Hey Jimmi, just gliding through your thread. Your enthusiasm and character shows a bright light and I'm glad you shared your experience.

I was very depressed and not knowing how I would go on to live once finding out I had Peyronies and seeing it get worse (still is), I'm 28 and had quite a fun sex life before which came to a total STOP and haven't since. I'm not the same person I used to be right now but reading up about implants has given me hope.

I see you found a new surgeon, how's the cost on this one? I know you mention 13K on your primary. I would maybe opt for private also although I do not have that cash but could take out a loan I guess, or pay in installments. Not sure. I just want the best possible outcome so I can have a fulfilling sex life again and regain my confidence.
