I recently had a penile implant surgery, an AMS 700 MS. After 45 days, it's gone from the expected significant constant pain to constant tolerable pain, before I tried it.
The Doctor cleared me to start using the pump last week - first few practice attempts were excruciating (imagine your erection crushed flat in a vice) - but that supposed to go away with more practice. Coitus is unthinkable. Afterwards pants are painful for the rest of the day, even with a jock strap (and I'm used to pain- seven major cancer surgeries (w/60 days in hospital in a year), chemo-radiation-chemo, my gall bladder, and two spinal surgeries for painful herniated discs...)
My Doctor recommends pumping up 1X a day until pain goes away (3 -6 months?), then eventually reducing it, but pumping up at least once a week.
I intend to find it usable in time. I'm going to go through this unavoidable pain until it proves itself, or at least six months. How long can I expect the daily pain regimen to go on before it gets better? Will I eventually get to the point of pleasurable sensation?
I'd like to hear from others who've stuck it out as to their experience with pain over time, any pain management tips, and how long it took to eventually get to successful results with their implant surgery. Did anyone eventually opt for removal due to pain - and if so, how long did you go before giving up?View Thread
