    I had prostate surgery 5 years ago and 2 years later had radiation. PSA is fine as of now.  I have tried all of the pills and also the Caverject Injection.  Didnt have to much succes with anything.   Finally one day I called my Urogolists and could get in the next day so I took it.  Set up a appointment to have a implant done.  I had the surgery last Thursday.  Sort of weird when they cut on your Junk.   But had alot of swelling but after a week it seems alittle better. 
  Can anybody else give me information on there implant?  Swelling , when did you start to work-lift, Wear pants or any other advice.  \ Did they have your implant sort of pumped up for the healing of everything.  Thanks

Emil,

Hope you will read the posts which lifeguyd made available.  Click on the link and most questions will be answered.  I'll deal with your question about leaving you inflated.  I could have sworn my surgeon left me inflated a little, but he said he did not and in reality, he didn't.  All the swelling, etc. makes you think you are and I understand some sugeons do leave it inflated a bit.  One reason you might think you are inflated is that the cylinders implanted in your shaft will never retreat up into your body.  So you will have a better "lockerroom" look about you.  Just might as well enjoy it 'cause it ain't going away to hide anywhere.

Will be glad to talk with you personally if you wish.  Email me and I'll email my phone number to you or I'll call you... whichever.
