PE After Botched Implant Surgery
Hello, Gentlemen; I need some help with a profound injury problem. I was doing well after a couple of years of PE following Thunder’s links. I had cancer and radical prostate surgery several years ago and subsequently lost about 2” of length and some girth as well. I regained all that and an inch extra back following the methods of hanging and stretching posted here. However, I was not able to achieve a usable erection and our sex life was frustrating to say the least. My wife of many years had given up on ever having normal coitus again; but I couldn’t give up that easily. So in May of ‘06 I had an Alpha 1 Prosthesis by Mentor implanted. The doc immediately left town for a ten day vacation; and I developed - almost immediately and while still in the hospital - a severe infection. Over the next ten days the docs filling in for my doc told me what I was experiencing was normal, that it was not an infection, that I should just take the antibiotic and follow the doc’s instructions. I was one more sick dude, hardly able to hold my head up; and when my doc returned, I called him and tried to describe my problem. He must have thought I was just a cry baby and only reluctantly saw me as a work-in. He looked me over and said it was just bruised and sore, more or less normal. But since I was fevered he ran a test just in case. I waited the length of time needed for the test to be analyzed in his Lab, and returned for the follow-up. Just as they were in the process of checking me out, he hurried in, explained he had just looked At the culture results and said I needed to go to the hospital immediately for removal of the prosthesis; that I had a severe infection and could not be treated with the prosthesis still in. That was 15 days after the implant was placed. After four days in the hospital I was well enough to go home, and with several weeks of antibiotics I was declared free of infection and in the next eight or nine months I finally healed. After about six months he told me it was the worst infection he had ever seen.
I lost 2 1/2 inches of penis length or more during that recovery process. Girth was dramatically decreased. He told me to wait a while and then start using my Vacuum Pump again. I was warned not to “over-do it” so I lagged in my use of the VED. I was told without another implant I would never have another erection except with the VED and restriction ring. I lost heart and didn’t use the pump again. I did, and still do some moderate stretching at times. Some degree of hopelessness has set in I suppose. I haven’t visited Thunder’s site in seven or eight months so I finally got the idea that maybe there was still some hope out there for me; so I decided to post and see what the results would be. Considering the internal scarring, is it safe for me to use my stretching device now? How should I start, if I can use it safely? If anyone has a little experience with my kind of problem, I sure could use some encouragement and advice.
