Long time lurker here...I plan to post my journey once I have more time.
I recently (May 31) took the trip to TJ and met Doctor C, Wade, Mel, and Christian. As you are all aware, they are truly the best of the best.
Doctor C opted for 10% and utilized 30% in areas he thought required it. A total of 19cc\'s were used. I relied on Doctor\'s C\'s expertise heavily.
I have encountered a bit of swelling beneath the head of the penis. I understand this is normal, though was a bit concerned. The swelling has gone down substantially on the top (if you look down at the penis), though the underside is still quite a bit swollen.
Could this be PMMA? Or does this portion of the penis take the longest to reduce in swelling?
The area feels liquid-like, as if its water or some other fluid. I try to massage it, but it doesn\'t really move around at all. It doesn\'t feel like PMMA either (which to me is quite a bit more firm. I can feel it in the rest of the penis, and can move it around in these areas with a bit of massaging).
I know I am being a bit cautious, just worried I suppose. I know its still healing (still a small amount of leaking at the injection sites, black and blue towards the base, etc), but any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Just thought I would update as to provide assistance to those who are going to take the PMMA plunge in the future...
After 12 days, the swelling on the bottom side of the penis has decreased significantly. The top side shows nearly no swelling at all. Ibuprofen and wrapping the portion below the head (gland) has proven a huge help.
I have developed a bit of a rash (in the form of small spots) in this swollen area. I emailed Wade who said it is most likely from the bandaging. I picked up some hydrocortosone (sp?) to ease the itching.
Thank you both. Yes, it feels like a fluid-like sack. BDMike, took your advice and emailed Wade. He suggests wrapping it during the day, and ibuprofen 600mg once a day for a few days to \"kick start\" the blood flow...
Keep you all posted of the results. Its only been 8 days now...but am loving the results already...haha

It\'s possible PMMA could migrate to the swollen areas, but what your experiencing is most likely swelling and will subside soon. That area is so sensitive and swells the most and typically is the last to go away. Read my thread and there\'s some of the things I\'m doing that help with swellig. Massaging that area too much will increase inflammation, but then again you still want to ensure the product is smooth there too beneith the swelling. If you are concerned message Wade and he will have additional advice. Possible ibuprofen, anica gel...etc. good luck. We are just a day apart on our journey. Would be awesome to hear and see more of your progress. Good luck.
