Young Guys with ED/Implants - update

Hi Caddy
Its been 2 1/2 months since your implant, how are things going with it. Have you gained any length with the LGX yet. How does it compare to erection before implant, what is your expirence with working out in the gym with the implant. Sorry for all the questions, but it seems Im in the same situation as you were with being young and having ed. Im 25 and have no luck with shots or pills.
Thanks Chris

Re: Young Guys with ED/Implants

Good Morning All,

So I fully planned to post an update at about the six-month mark, buuuuut, since you asked, here goes. And as usual, my apologies; follows is one of my usual winded novelas. Might wanna refill your coffee (or mermosa) before continuing.

As ptown stated, it's been just a bit more than 2.5 months since I had my AMS LGX implanted, and as this is written, everything's rollin' (lol - or "rising" I suppose) just fine. As I wrote a couple months back, the recovery from surgery was entirely complication and by-and-large, pain-free. I suffered no infections, there were no deformaties, no injuries to other organs or the various parts of my nether-regions. Everything fits, and everything still works.

That all said, these past few months have revealed that there is certainly a learning and adaptation curve with having an implant. There are definite differences in what things look like down there, and moreover, what one is able to "do" with the final product. I've learned that the implant mandates some (though overall, very, very few) compromises in one's lifestyle, and generally requires that you be consistently aware (and somewhat more vigilant) about how you sit, dress and generally move about the world. Moral of that bit a' babble is "think long and hard before pulling the proverbial trigger on having such a surgery; be sure to exhaust all other options and treatments first, 'cause once she's in you, there's no taking er' out, and the compromises (and perhaps inevitable follow-up surgeries) are yours to deal with for life."

lol - Okie doke - with that somewhat ominous disclaimer out there, the "best" parts of life with an implant thus far:

- It works. It works on command, it works with mere seconds of minimal effort, and it works repeatedly.

- The "final product" is an erection that's hard as a metal pole. Without going into details of my VASTLY improved social life to date, I can tell you from experience now, you'll have no trouble using "mini-you" for intercourse.

- When you're not pumped-up, "soft mini-you" is gonna be much more impressive. While the LGX has the added benefit (as compared to other implant makes) of being able to expand slightly in length, generally your flacid size is going to be the same as your erect length, just...softer. If you're even "near-average" then, you'll probably fill out a pair of briefs far more effectively than you did before the surgery. Though here, as others have said, you'll have to be somewhat careful. While your partner is going love it, looking "semi happy" down there 24-7 might be an issue if you often change clothes in a locker room, at the beach, whatever.

- Having the implant (and this part is probably the biggest for a wannabe gym-rat like yours truly) will have zero effect on your ability to lift. Upon getting clearance from the uro at week number four, I was back in the weight-room throwing the heavy stuff around just as before, and to date, I've felt no pain or movement of things, nor observed any impact of such activities on the operational reliability of the implant. Seems obvious now, but the whole of the prosthesis is contained within your member and lower abdomen. There's no upper-body movement then (benching, pressing, pullings-down, etc.) that would have any effect on these parts of your body, and so again, I've felt and noticed nothing.

Now that said, and just to be prudent, I've totally abandoned trainning legs (don't care what the doc says, racking 100's of pounds across my shoulders and squatting to my ankles canNOT be good for the implant), ditto for ab work and for the moment, "most" cardio. Put another way, during these initial months of healing/settlement, I've tried to avoid any activity that I felt would involve twisting, direct stress on the abs, or a general "jostling" of the boys down there. But again, all other trainning (shoulders, back - minus deadlifting - biceps, chest) all are back-on just as before, and with zero deleterious effects. So yah, my former "most of the year" six-pack's gone, and without heavy leg work (and a tweaked diet to reflect less intense cardio), I've dropped about 12 pounds...but who cares? What I've gained elsewhere in my life means I'm not sweatin' the losses too much.

- Finally, there's a benefit of having the implant that really can't be quantified. As any of us with constant ED can attest, perhaps worse than the actual performance issue itself, is knowing that no matter what you do, how suave you are, how into the person you might be, that nature won't allow you to act on the desire, and that either the night will end in embarrasement, or else you'll have to avoid the intimacy all-together. Having the implant now and the confidence in knowing that I can pursue a "full" relationship with someone...well, IMHO, that's entirely worth the price of a few surgeries over several decades.

-----------------------

And the downsides of life with an implant thus far?

- Despite how smoothly the device has been "absorbed" by my body, I find I'm still constantly aware of its presence. My LGX "MS" pump rests within my right testicle, and quite low - so low that it makes contact with seemingly every surface I sit on. If that surface isn't pretty soft, then there's a very uncomfortable pinch that mandates constant wriggling and adjustment. Moreover, even when sitting on softer surfaces, the pump sortta twists or slightly "swings" (I think), and again, results in some discomfort. Long and the short of it, having the device means that where before, you probably just "sat down" and didn't think twice about it, now you'll certainly notice (and think thrice) about every squat.

- The final product (and I think having read seemingly a bazillion other stories, and experiencing such myself can now say this with confidence) - your erection - is gonna be smaller and less full with an implant than it was prior to surgery. With the disclaimer that every body, every sugery and recovery are different, I think it's safe to say there's no erection like mother nature gives you, and so even with the best surgeon and technology - even with an implant that expands in length - the overall size will be less.

Now that said, here's the bright (and kinda weird) side to that statement. While my measuring tape says I've lost just about an inch from that former "pumped the hell up on Cialis, lasts for 18 seconds" sad-excuse-for-an-erection I used to get...once I (ahem) "get going," and reeeeally happy (so to speak), blood does indeed flow down there, slightly swelling the glans (though less than before), and adding back 3/4 of that lost 3/4 of an inch. Moreover, there's a similar increase in girth just prior to getting off, such that my erection really doesn't look all that different from the natural, former one. Weird huh? So while overall, there is going to be a difference in the look of things post-op, generally the biggest difference is how you'll look immediately following inflation.

- Once inflated, your new erect penis isn't as bendable as the original. While there is a limited range, you can't safely bend your member (for example) up against your abs, or straight-down. This makes some of the (ahem) "logistsics" of sex challenging or at least means you have to give things more thought. For me, it's meant I'm constantly having to pump and deflate throughout the night as positions or whatever change. You also have to be careful about the occassional erant knee or whatever to the crotch...once up, you're hard down there, and the device doesn't take too kindly to the accidental jab, etc. Finally, there's the fear that any of the above is going to damage the implant, either immediately or in the long term. I'm still scared out of my mind that one wrong twist, or soft flop on my stomach is going to snap the thing apart, and mandate a rapid trip to the OR. Hell, to expand on that, I'm still entirely scared in knowing that one day, I'm inevitably going to wake up, try to pump myself up, and nothing will happen. Hopefully that day's 15 years off, but still, knowing that it is indeed coming, isn't exactly a comforting thought to have lurking in the back of one's mind.

So...in summary then; surgery and immediate recovery were an utter breeze; the amount of time to acclimate to the new parts, to learn to move, sit and sweat again - that's taken a bit longer. Having the implant has meant making "some" compromises - in my physical life, and (newfound) sexual life - but by-and-large, they've all been minor. Applied to everybody else, and assuming you're not obese, or can clearly remember the Kennedy Administration, I'd say you'll be able to quickly adapt too. And at any rate, whatever the nastier impacts to one's life might be, the implant allows you to have freakin' sex (either for the first time, or as you used to years ago). If you're in my boat, that you have no other alternative from which to choose - this then, is an easy, painless (for me), and low, low compromise option that so far, has worked perfectly.

Other than having to pump him up.
In due time you will forget the implant is there .

Re: Young Guys with ED/Implants

Hey caddyman
I am glad to hear of your sucess with the penile implant surgery. I am going through the same situation as you when you were impotent with venous leakage. Im 25 years old tried every thing from viagra, rings, injections and nothing is really working.I can take viagra 100 mg and can only sustain it for only 3 to 5 seconds. It seems the implant is my only option for keeping a erection. The way things are right now i have absolutely no confidence in my abilility to have sex because I no i will fail.

Has your confidence come up alot since the implant, and can women be pleased with sex with one are they satisfied like the prosthesis pamplets say at 96% satisfaction or do you think its less.

Does the implant look like a identical erection before impotence?

what do the women think of the implant?

Sorry for all the questions, im just worried about the outcome. I would like to hear from someone young that has the implant.

Thanks
Chris

Re: Young Guys with ED/Implants

Hey Chris,

Okie doke (to paraphrase a certain former candidate for President), a bit of "straight talk" concerning implants, and the business of living with one.

1. Has your confidence come up alot since the implant, and can women be pleased with sex with one are they satisfied like the prosthesis pamplets say at 96% satisfaction or do you think its less.

Yes, without a doubt, my entire outlook on love, life and relationships has radically changed since the surgery. Where before, as you stated, I'd stopped even trying to pursue relationships (to say nothing of sex), now, knowing that both are possible, my confidence (compared to life pre-op anyway) is "through the roof."

I can't speak for women (and their percentage of satisfaction) of course, but I can tell you that proper sex (just about however you'd define it) is absolutely possible with the implant, and thus far, I've gotten no complaints from my partners.

2. Does the implant look like a identical erection before impotence?

No, unfortunately it does not. Your erection is (more than likely) going to be smaller and of lesser girth. Now that sucks...in fact that entirely sucks, but what's the alternative!? From my own experience, I'd rate the implant as perhaps 85% of what nature gave you in size, girth and general feel - and every bit as rigid and hard (e.g. "functional"). If there are no other treatments that have worked for you, and in the face of a lifetime of complete impotence, seems a perfectly adequete compromise, wouldn't ya think?

3. what do the women think of the implant?

Again, can't speak for the womenfolk, but they've all been smiling upon finish, so, yah...there ya go.

Sorry for all the questions, im just worried about the outcome. I would like to hear from someone young that has the implant.

My overarching advice to ya Chris (and only because you've been following and posting here for what, going on "years" now?), is to move toward making a final decision one way or the other. Does having the surgery mean you'll have to make compromises in the "how" of having sex? Yes. Will you have to adjust to a slightly different looking, acting member? Yes. Is the device a perfect replacement for a natural erection? No, sadly not. But again, in the face of a lifetime of "no sex," of embarassement and perhaps, aloneness - the implant is an enTIREly acceptable, usable and functional fix. It'll take some getting used to, sure...but being young and healthy, it really shouldn't be too big a deal for ya. It hasn't been for me.

Now that all said, I'd never advocate jumping into such a decision. As I've stated here about a bazillion times, explore and exhaust all other alternatives before deciding on the implant, but if you already have (and such would seem to be the case), then I'd say "get er' done" sir, life's waiting for ya!

Hi Caddy
One of your concerns you had before you recieved the implant was having a active lifestyle with the implant, do you think now since you have the implant that this isnt really a concern. The reason I ask is because I work in the construction field and I do heavy lifting, and im always bending down to pick alot of stuff up. Do you think this would be a concern. I figure you would know since your a personal trainer with a active lifestyle.
How are things weight lifting with the implant do you have any problems there such as working quads and hammys.
Thanks
Chris

Re: Young Guys with ED/Implants

Hey Ptown,

lol - You quoted the whole of my post, but I'm noooot sure you read it? There's like a paragraph in there that speaks directly to your question. No worries...I've made a few changes to my lifestyle/workout since that post, so here's a bit more info for ya.

As I stated, the implant has had ZERO effect on my upper-body training specifically. Regardless of movement or intensity, you seriously don't even know it's there (lol - whether that's a good thing or not, I dunno...I still worry that some wrong pull or twist is gonna ruin the thing someday, but I digress). All in all, everything I was lifting for chestbackshoulderstris, etc. before the surgery, I'm still doing after.

K, lower body then...as I've also said before, I stopped all cardio, dedicated leg and ab training post-op, and to 1.) let things fully heal down there, and 2.) 'cause (despite what the doc says) I really don't trust the implant's ability long-term to survive the strain such movements as deadlifting, heavy squatting or running would place on the lower body. Now that said, over the past month or so, I have slooowly started to integrate legs back into the training. I still won't hit em' with the heavy movements I mentioned before, rather I just do a variation of lunges, and only (slowly and two steps at a time) up the stairs of my apartment complex. Stupid minor (compared to my former routine), and again, always veeeery slow and careful. I don't feel any pain or strain with the movement (as I've said many times before, I've never felt any real "pain" persay at any stage of my surgery or recovery), but the wider stance/stretch does bring some minor "discomfort" (i.e. I can feel the implant pretty soundly if I'm not careful).

So in a nutshell then...general lifting of any sort (whether via the pounding of weights at a gym OR at a construction site) is entirely "no biggie" with the implant - again, you won't even know the thing is there. It's my personal choice and caution that has me ignoring lower body...my uro mandated no such prohibition, and I've read of some men going so far as to ride bikes post-op. I'd say just do what you, or rather what your body feels comfortable with. When a motion or position is "wrong," it'll certainly let you know.

Re: Young Guys with ED/Implants - update

I just joined this board and read some of the posts about implants. I'm currently considering an implant. To follow up on a previous question about how women feel about the implant: Obviously there is some extra equipment in the srotum. How do you deal with that? My sexual activity has always involved a lot of "ball play" and i'm wondering how women feel about the "3rd testicle" down there? Thanks.

I just joined the board also,< edited >

I had an implant surgery on July 13th of 2009, so I am pretty new to the experience. Having suffered from ED for 9 years and taking Trimix injections for 8 and a half of those years, this is turning out to be a Godsend. I am not sure how others are dealing with it, but I am actually being honest and upfront about the implant with my partners. I have met with incredibly favorable results when being honest. I also happen to have a smaller scrotum, so the pump for my implant, the Coloplast Titan, while fairly small, is easily noticable. In fact, I have involved my partners in the function of "pumping me up" as part of foreplay. In talking with them, they were more amazed as they didn't know anything about ED treatments except for the vasil dialaters advertised on TV. They did not know about injections and certainly didn't know about our Bionics as I affectionatly call the implant. Not once was there a negative reaction to telling a sexual partner about the implant and not one woman has complained about the "third testicle".

Re: Young Guys with ED/Implants - update

Afternoon All,

From my experiences so far, the pump and implant really aren't too big a deal for the/your partner. I started off trying to hide the thing, but after a couple ladies "stumbled" on to the pump (and so kinda ruining the moment as I had to (ahem) "stop" and explain things), like rjf1205, I've since begun to inform my partners upfront as to what I'm packin' so to speak. In "most" cases (and after their head-cocked "huh?" fades), it's noooo big deal. And those few that were weirded out, well, screw em;' their loss.

It's worth pointing out though, that sensations down there change post-op (and for perhaps obvious reasons)...one of your testicles is now more or less filled with the pump and connected to tubing that travels up into your nether-regions. I would describe sensations on and around that testicle (with the pump n' tubing) as somewhat "deadened" when compared to pre-op. If foreplay down there is your sexual cup of tea, the presence of the pump "may" be an issue to which you/your partner will have to adapt (lol - though I would think it'd be a minor one when compared to your newfound ability to properly "get it on" in most every other sense of the phrase).

Hey Caddy

When you explained to the girls why you have the implant, were they still wierded out by it. Because this is what has me kind of worried once I get a implant. Did all the women you been with feel like this.

I have to agree my sensations changed, but not like you described. I did not experience any deadening or loss of feeling or sensation. I was told by my surgeon that I have a smaller scrotum. He indicated that the smallest pump on the market belongs to Coloplast and is used in the Titan. While not my primary reason for choosing this implant, it was another reason. The pump was extremely bothersome during the first 8 weeks post op. Odd, phantom pains came from my scrotum in addition to having the pump rub against various parts of me internally. It also caused an irritable, but controllable itching sensation. Now, i hardly notice the pump. There is not loss in sensation, in fact, if I were to admit it, "ball play' during intimacy was never my thing. It never did anything for me, one way or the other. Now i find stimulation in that area quite pleasant indeed.

I am going to chime in here too! Since being "activated" 8 weeks post surgery, I have had the pleasure of being with 3 sexual partners. 1 already new about my implant as I had discussed it with her in detail prior to committing myself to the surgery. The other two women did know until I told them. I should also preface this by saying that one of the women I told was 25 years old and the other was 34.

The 25 year old actually was amazed. She knew about Viagra and other oral dilators. if fact it was she who affectionately coined the term "bionic c*ck" with me and caused me to chuckle good naturedly. She was not weirded out in the least, but instead was quite curios. She was very interactive, wanted to know all about it, how it worked etc. For a short while, I felt like I was teaching a student and I guess I was since she is taking graduate courses part time.

The 34 year old also was not weirded out, but was more cautious. Initially she was afraid it might break. Once she relaxed a bit realized that it is quite strong, things were better then fine. Even though i never really had issues with control, Going 9 weeks without any type of sex and then having 3 beautiful women in 3 weeks was a bit much for me and I have to say, I felt like a kid again.

Since we are adults here, I will add that all of the women appreciated that I d id not go soft after orgasm. this was true even in a case when she experienced an orgasm also. She said she enjoyed the feeling of being "full" after her orgasm and that it was the first time she ever experienced that. I honestly think that I have a lot to learn about this new found "bionic c*ck". it is capable of some amazing things and it does feel great! In the wrong hands, it could be quite dangerous. lol.

Hey Caddy

Thanks for sharing your expirences with the bed situations with the ladies, because this is one of the major fears im going to have once having a implant.
You mentioned some of the ladies were wierded out by the implant, do you tell them upfront that you had the implant and were they still wierded out by this. Have any of the women that you hooked up with for the night, called you wanting to hook up again or wanted to start a relationship. Reason I ask is because I dont know once a woman goes home with you and she finds out you have a implant do they want to see you again or hook up again knowing you have a implant. Because my fear is a women wouldnt want to be in a relationship with someone who has one?

Chris,

What you're asking really does not have anything to do with the implant. It has to do with you. A woman is not going to choose or not choose to start a relationship with you because of an implant. If they do, they are incredibly shallow. Despite having an implant, your penis is still yours. Your sensations and feelings are still yours. The skin and form is still yours. A woman is going to choose to want to be in a relationship with you because of you, not your penis.

With me, the implant corrected a psychological flaw. I hesitated in becoming intimate because because of my ED. I didn't kiss a woman at the right time, because of fear of where it might lead. I didn't act instinctively because of that same fear. Now that I have the ability to be "normal", my confidence in my ability grew 10 fold. I have no fear of what might happen and instead look forward to what might happen.

In the end, I am better for it. If a woman is going to decide not to be with me because of the implant, then I don't want her anyway. You're the one in driver's seat.

Now I am not as young as you at 49, but, none of my partners have had any complaints thus far. In the end, it's your decision. Ask yourself if you're truly happy and able to continue with the way things are now. Be honest with yourself.
