Hey my name is Mike. I'm only 21 but think the only way to save my sex life and mental health is to get an implant (probly 3 piece AMS LX). I'm in college and not being able to have sex is killing me slowly. My penis function went downhill for about 2 years, first it was just cold and firm in the flaccid state, working only with viagra and cialis, and as of 4-5 months ago stopped working correctly all together even with drugs. (Years ago I stupidly did steroids, thyroid meds, various penis stretches, jelquing as i though things were not sufficient when all along I was fine.I dont know which thing did the damage and have spend years trying to figure out. All I know is my penis has gotten continually worse and viagra and cialis no longer work at all for me.) I can go into more detail maybe later if needed but my questions for now are:
Most Importantly, What steps should I take to get this done. What do i need to tell doctors, who should i see when my uro says I'm too young to even think about an implant? I know I need it and don't want to wait until I've missed any more experiences of dating or sex thing before I end up eventually getting it like I know I will. Who should I turn to now that my uro won't help me here?
Also, I was wondering if I could have my suspensory ligaments cut to give me an extra inch or so which I fear I may lose. I'm a young guy and this is very important to me. From what I've heard, the downside to this operation is that the penis loses stability. Would the implant have enough power to make the purpose of the suspensory ligaments not be needed? Would it make up for the instability I mean? Do you think these procedure could be done together? (implant and suspensory cut). Is there anything else I can do to get some length or girth back?
Also, as far as girth what should I expect? I've had severe girth shrinking in the past 2+ years as my corpus cavernosum has hardened and lost all elasticity and i feel my vains have hardened in the penis. (doctors dont see this and had a penile doppler done and said everything was fine, but its not. They tried saying it was in my head.) Do all cyclinders of the pump expand the same amount girthwise? Will girth keep expanding as far as my skin will stretch as I pump? Could I maybe regain much of the lost girth now?
Lastly, how noticeable is it? If i could find some way to keep a girl from touching my testicals, could it be conceiled? Obviously this getting out would be very embarassing for a college student like me. Could I pump up during kissing or undressing? Or maybe say i have to go to the restroom and come back with an erection maybe tucked under m belt or kept conceiled by wearing tight boxers?
I know I've asked about a million questions here but I'm desperate, depressed, and really need to fix myself. I can go into more detail about my history and the state of my penis if that would help any.
Be sure that you know what you are doing. There is a chance of complications with an implant including amputation of the penis.
I started having problems with erections that would not improve with the use of Viagra or Cialis. A urologist suggested a drug tri-mix directed into the the erectile tissue of the penis. Within about 15 minutes I was able to achieve an erectioon stron enough to penetrate.
With an implant there is an incision made to the base of the penis and scrotum. In order fot the implant to fit, the tisues in the penis are removed. What this means is that if the implant was to fail or was rejected. There is then no way to reverse the procedure and you will be left with an unfuctional penis.
I think that you should be infestigated to determined what the cause of your ED is.
I'm conviced that most urologist will not do this type of surgery unless there is a definite cause of your ED.
I'm now 45 as of yesterday and have neumerous problem with the urinary-reproductive system and needed to have one testicle removed. I would be willing to just about try anything possible before I would have a urologist take a scalpal to my penis.
From what I have read in your post, I am also convinced that you have little understanding of the reproductive system. You could end up doing more damage then good. The question here is: would you risk loosing your penis because of a possibly unneeded surgery. Please give this some thought. I know how frustrating it can be.
