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.

I don’t know why I made such a fuss over the inflate,
deflate saga. It’s a doddle…
Today is the third day of going it alone and it is so much
easier than I thought it would be.Now I
know where everything is I am sure it will become second nature over time.
Inflating and deflating it has made it a bit tender but I
think that is where the tissue etc is being stretched and the tips etc are
moving into place.In fact I can feel
the tips of the implant really pushing into the head now and it looks like
there has been some gain in girth although I know there has been some gain I
can’t see any difference in length yet.
As you know I have the AMS
700LGX implant which expands in both girth and length so I am hopeful of some more
gain as time goes on.
To give you a rough idea of the changes to my measurements
Prior to prostate surgerylength
approx 5" flaccid and 8"erect.
Post prostate surgery but prior to implant surgery length approx 3" flaccid
and 5" erect.
Post implant surgery length
approx 4" flaccid and 6" erect
For some reason I never bothered to measure the girth – note
to self, get a tape measure.
As you can see I seem to be heading in the right direction
and as usual I will keep you posted with photos and measurements.
One last thing – I had my last appointment with the Urology
Nurse the other day and that’s it now for 3 months.
Now at 6 weeks post surgery I get to play
with my new toy!!!!
