I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2008 and following problems with erectile disfunction fitted with an AMS LGX700 Penile Implant in July 2013.
Loads has happened and is going to happen to me and if by doing this I can help another person, partner or family who is going through a similar thing, that's cool.
Have a good read from the start, check the archives and any questions, please just ask.

Well the plan to be more comfortable during the night never
really worked.I tried everything I
could think of (including a sock over it).The sock admittedly did work the best of all and did stop the pain of
rubbing but because the implant still has a tendency to inflate slightly from
time to time there is still a bit of discomfort.Now however the hair is growing back and it
seems to have mostly got past the stubble phase so with a couple of ibuprofen it’s
back to a happy nights sleep.
I think I said earlier that the wound was not healing as
quickly as I expected and to quote my local nurse “it was a bit moist”.Her solution to dry the wound, an iodine
soaked pad held in place with a wound dressing.“Might sting a bit” she said.Sting wasn’t the word for it, it was agony!!!!I lasted two day and could not stand it
anymore.But to give her her due it does
seems to have worked and although sore as far as I can tell does not seem to be
“moist”.I am back to see her later
today. Let’s see what she says.
It would be good to get the wound sorted and for the stitches
to dissolve – yes they are still there, but hopefully not for too much
longer.I am still a bit too wary to
search for the deflate button, the inflate I can find and feel without any
problem at all the deflate is a different matter.The whole pump seems to be back quite a long
way and quite deep so I’m still going to leave it alone. Don’t want to inflate
and not be able to get it down again.
As far a size goes I am pretty happy.After the pc surgery I did lose quite a bit
of both flaccid and pumped erect length.Although I haven’t bothered to measure it since surgery there is a big
improvement in both flaccid length and girth.My penis now seems to fit my body again which is what I wanted.Erect length and girth is less but as with
everything time will tell – eventually when I manage to inflate and deflate my
self I’ll post a few pictures.
Overall I’m still pleased with how it’s going, although
patience is not one of my strong points.I did think I would be pain free by now but I am afraid that is not the
case but it has only been 3 short weeks.I am not back at work full-time yet but I am defiantly not sitting
around (can’t afford to I have already put on 7 pounds in weight).In fact we even managed a 4 mile walk two
days ago albeit with a couple of breaks.
The appointment in London with the hospital nurse is the 21 August.
