Re: AMS 700 Penile Implant
I had my AMS 700 implanted 5 weeks and 3 days ago. Honestly, I cheated and pumped it up slightly about 9 days after surgery. Since I knew how to deflate it, I wasn't worried. I have a huge sex drive and masturbated very gently. No damage. I continued every day, very gently. Then, about 10 days later, I started having sex, but, without inflating it. However, I wouldn't advise anyone else to do what I did. I've had no problems with inflation, deflation, etc.
However, I did lose some size. I was very aware of my erect size prior to the surgery. I was 6 3/4 inches long, measuring from the upper (not the lower part) to the tip, and was 6 1/2 inches in circumphrence at the base. I was so big, because I used a penis pump (they do make you much thicker and longer). Everybody who saw it said it was at least 8 inches, but, no, it was only 6 3/4, at least how I measure it. Anyway, after surgery, I'm 6 1/4 inches in length ( I lost 1/2 inch), and am 5 inches in circumphrence at the base (I lost 1 1/2 inches in cirvumphrence). I went from using a Magnum Extra large to a regular size condom. I definitely miss the difference in circumphrence.
Also, I have an adhesion from the pump to my right testicle. It seems to be loosening somewhat, but, almost 6 weeks later, is still attached. Will it detach? I wish I knew. Also, I do get sharp pains periodically primarily at the tip on both sides and towards the head about an inch back. These seem to be easing up somewhat. However, I am VERY sensitive at the head. As an example, it hurts to have shower water touch the head. I'm THAT sensitive. I was cleared for sex at 4 weeks and have definitely been having sex a lot. However, the pain certainly offsets the pleasure. I'm assuming that the more I use it, the more the pain will lessen. In any case, no damage to the pump, etc.
My biggest complaints are the continuing pain and the loss in circumphrence. I'm thinking that maybe a bigger reservoir could make me thicker and may talk to my Dr. about it in the future. Any questions for me?
