Penile implant

Hello everyone, I have had no erection since my surgery in January last year. Ihave tried two types of tablets and self injection and that has not helped.

Today I saw my eurologist, he suggested a penile implant. This could be an inflatable one or a semirigid rod. I just learnt about the pros and cons for both, but I am not sure which one to go for, any advice?

You have to give it time. Ask your doctor if there was nerve damage done? Try 5 mg cialis daily... watch some porn. Play with yourself.. on days you may have sex take 2 cialis and maybe 100 mg of viagra about an hour before sex. It’s not easy!!

Hi Martiniolives, I have tried both Cialis and Viagra but it had no effect. He then suggested self injection which I had to do twice a week, it didnt work either, instead I had unbearable pains on the penis. I am not sure if there was a nerve damage or what.

Hi Verso. I was recommended the inflatable implant by the experts at St Mary’s Hospital in London. I had suspected nerve damage after having TB meningitis.

The positives for the inflatable option as I understand it, is that the penis fully inflates which increases sensation in the penis.

I also take a Cialis before sex as it increases the blood flow further and helps me reach Orgasm easier.

Good luck

I also feel that an iflatable one is better compared to the rod, but I am sceptical that some of its parts could malfunction, the video I saw on internet made me feel it is better. Regarding the semirigid rod, I feel it may be uncomfortable.

Actually, the pump doesn’t increase sensation. Some sensation is lost because the head does not expand. With the other treatments the head and shaft work as designed. Good luck either way.

I disagree Miket218, in my case I didn’t get close to ejaculation after my illness but following the implant I was able to ejaculate multiple times like a woman can.

Fantastic! Good for you! Glad to know it worked for you. In my case the meds I take from the VA for PTSD keep me from having orgasms.

That’s a bummer. I was also on an antidepressant that kept me from climaxing until my doc told me to come off of them and hey presto

Two men in my group have the inflatable and (are along with their partners) happy. That would be the way I would go. The "bendable buddy" device strikes me as being pretth much non physiological and inconvenient.

Thanks Dadzone43, I also feel that way.

I have the three piece inflatable. Wife loves it. Only regret is, I didn't do it sooner. They had to go with a smaller size cause I had a lot of scaring from injecting 4 or 5 yrs. We plan an upgrade within the year. Good luck.

I had the regular Medicare. It cost me 1500 out of pocket for the doc and hospital. The hospital stretched the payment over 6mo which made it easier to pay. The results were priceless. Due to the prostate removed, the scaring from injections and the small loss due to the implant, I lost a total of 3in to the length.

I have had a Titan Touch penile implant installed several years ago and highly recommend a three-piece inflatable. It is a life-changer.
