The choices are essentially three yes and one no, so one could add up the first three choices and say to Thunder, “See, a lot of people want one.” I voted against because this is a place of manual or natural methods, not surgical. Surgical is the “quick” way, the “easy” way, the one with “instant” gains. But it’s also, as 8-Ball has learned, the way of great disappointment, pain and unfulfilled dreams. I’d rather keep this place focused on manual methods.
Some of you know that my job involves administering anesthesia for surgery. I’ve worked with Gary Rheinschild and another (now out of the business) surgeon and have participated in dozens of these procedures. So I’m not being anti-surgery without some insight into the way things work.
First of all I disagree with your theory that I have biased the poll with my answer choices, there is a difference between being actively interested in the forum and supporting the idea without a vested interest. I definately agree that surgery is not the magic cure that many patients hoped for, including myself. However, I haven’t had a truly BAD experience from it. Keep in mind I PE’d for 5 years with virtually nothing to show for it and now I have finally made large gains for the first time ever. Was I dissapointed I didnt gain an inch and a half of girth? Yes, but I still am glad I had it done. And, the surgery certainly isn’y an “easy” or “quick” way. You have to hang weights to actually gain any length so it is neither easy or quick. Most people don’t realize this and by having a forum we could discuss all of this information and bring it to the table.
I do understand your point about the dissapointment many men feel with the surgery, but remember I am not promoting it, just providing the facts. Also, there are a lot of men who have it done who are estatic about the results, so it is a mixed bag, definately a higher amount of risk and uncertainty though.
