My penis feeels kinda hard even though it is supposed to be empty. How much
lenght did you lose? What implant do you have? I canot imagine having 7 of
these operations.You are a tough sonofagun.
Yes, the AMS 700 series. That is the 'gold standard'. I think that is a good choice, as it is supposed to give the most natural appearance. I have always had this brand and type of implant. They have made great advancements since my first implant in 1981.
The implant takes quite a while to settle down.
Your penis will feel full and somewhat hard because of the tissues will need time to conform around the cylinders.
As to the swelling, it can take a long time for all the old blood to be reabsorbed, but trust me, it will subside with time.
The flaccid appearance is altered somewhat. It depends on the patient. The cylinders will not retract into the body as normal tissues do when not engorged with blood. Also the cylinders themselves have some tensile properties.
Length loss on an initial implant is usually 1" or so. If you have revisions, you can loose more.
My particular case, I lost several inches. But I am the exception with about everything that can go wrong (with the exception of infection) that could go wrong and still keep an implant.
Actually, I have had 18 surgeries to try and correct issues with scarring and penile wall weakening.
I want to add that I am all for the implant - everyone will respond differently to the surgery.
