who do you think is more credible, the surgeons/urologists or a bunch of guys on a website?
In this case, I’ll take the bunch of guys on the website. :) The medical community that is not making thousands of dollars off the surgery — including most urologists — tend to condemn the penis surgeries. With the exception of a few Commercial Members here, no one at Thunder’s Place is making a cent off of this shit, so I can’t really see any reason not to trust them — at least insofar as safety goes. (And it’s because of the tremendous volume of testimony to the safety of PE here that I entrust my dick to hanging, contra the opinions of, again, most of the mainstream medical community)
One reason I really liked this thread was that it would be somewhere besides the phalloplasty surgeons' websites (or the fairly dogmatic declarations of the rest of the medical community, who simply do not consider penis size to be a legitimate medical issue) to acquire information about the safety and efficacy of PE surgery — i.e., a relatively unbiased source of info where no one had any money to make. That’s why I was disappointed when the best contributor of information — Crash — suggested that he was hoping to get other guys to go get surgery with him so that he could save money. But I certainly hope he still continues to provide info here, including info about possible risks (according to the surgeon he sees).
By the way, Thunder is right that if you’re looking to gain length from surgery, you will need to hang weights afterwards. From the info I’ve gathered, the lig-cutting surgery seems to be fairly safe and routine; the open question is whether it really facilitates hanging gains (compared to what could be had without it). If you decide to get it, be sure to let us know the hanging protocol prescribed and the results that you see. Motivated and I exchanged a few thoughts on the matter here: /forum/showthread.php?p=482141#post482141
