3 years ago I had prostate CA and decided to have my protate removed. I tried all meds and they did not work. I tried Trimix injections and they worked for 6 months and then caused peyronies disease with an upward curve. I stopped the injections and used a vacuum pump for several months but was not able to sustain an erection. In January 2013 I had the implant surgery. From the beginning I talked about concerns for getting back to my 8 inches and the correct thickness. I offered to show the surgeon a picture of myself prior to cancer but he said he did not need it. Well, last week my urologist showed me how to inflate the device and I am only 2.5 thin inches. I am outraged and upset, yet he tells me there is nothing I can do. I do not know what to do and am looking for advice. PLEASE HELP! KeithView Thread
I had the implant surgery in Jan 2013 and when the surgeon showed me how to inflate it, I had 2.5 inches and I was 8 inches before. He gave me several lame excuses as to why I lost so much but he had initially refused to look at a picture of my penis before the surgery and when I showed it to him after the surgery was completed, he appeared shocked. I am angry and frustated because 2.5 inches is nothing. I have pleaded with him but he says there is nothing I can do and I will get used to it. I am considering a law suit but not even sure if I can sue since it does function. I just do not know where to turn. Please help. KeithView Thread
