Having Penis Implant And It Is Scaring Me
I’m scheduled for surgery on Sept 20, 2017 I have Peyronie’s disease and ED.
I have read nothing but terrible reviews from people that have had the surgery. I don't know what to do. I’m getting an penis implant.
My Peyronie's Answer
I’m sorry to hear about your condition. I can fully understand that undergoing penis surgery is a scary prospect. In my opinion, penis surgery would always be the last option due to the potential severe side effects.
HOWEVER, sometimes penis surgery is the only / right option for men with Peyronie’s. Penis surgery is the only treatment that can almost guarantee straight penis and penis implant will help men with severe erectile dysfunction to get erection on demand.
Yes, there is some risk involved with penis surgery but there is some risk involved with everything in life. And we are more likely to hear about it when things go wrong than when they go right. Majority of penis surgeries are done without any serious complications.
I’m assuming that you have explored all your other options prior to opting for surgery. And that you and your doctor have agreed that surgery is the next logical step in your case. I’m also assuming that you have a doctor with good experience of penile implants.
If my assumptions are right then you most likely have little to lose but potential lot to gain (pun intended) by having penis implant. However, if any of my assumptions is not right, then you can always decline or delay the surgery until you are sure it is the right option for you. Your situation will not get worse by waiting BUT it may be unlikely to improve either.
But under no circumstances let “terrible reviews” you read on-line decide for you. The background of those men may be different from yours, some may even have some alternative motif in mind and people are always more likely to share negative than positive experiences.
This is your penis, this is your decision. To decide I personally would ask myself the following questions:
- Do I trust my doctor?
- Have I tried all other reasonable options without success?
You are the only one that truly knows the answer to these questions.
I hope this is some help and I wish you all the best with your treatment. And if you do opt for penis implant, hopefully you will share your success story with My Peyronie’s readers (so someone in your position will be able to ready “positive” reviews for change).
