TOPIC: Talked w/ Gelman about PMMA (sorry Hoddle, I know you said no more docs)

Talked w/ Gelman about PMMA (sorry Hoddle, I know you said no more docs) 7 years 2 months ago #1288740093

I emailed him over a month ago, and he didn\'t get it - so I resent it with an update. He might have felt bad he didn\'t get the email, so he decided to call me.

Anyway, he\'s not a fan of PMMA. A couple concerning comments...

- It sticks to the Dartos fascia which is crucial for penile blood flow and lymph drainage. Long term consequences of this are unknown, but it may be why I have some dark purple areas and painful lumps. Dartos doesn\'t really \"grow back\" once it gets damaged or removed - he said it change something from \"organized\" to \"disorganized\" and then said \"this would make sense if you had a medical background in Urology\" so I don\'t really know what he meant.

- It\'s not just on bucks - in everyone. He said my situation wasn\'t unique. It goes wherever it wants and anyone can get lumps regardless of their health, supplements, prior procedures, aftercare, etc...

- He\'s fixed a lot of PMMA patients - more than Darkstaff.

- He thinks I could consider a graft for my 1\" loss + 1/2\" loss coming up... but it\'s too early to tell and I should wait 6 months. He\'s never done an inflatable penile expander, but he said Alter might do something like that - but wasn\'t sure. He said the Foreskin restoration techniques are \"very different\" than what I am trying to do, but I\'m not sure what he meant by that. I think they might be exactly what I should do.

- He doesn\'t know why my wounds aren\'t closing. He wouldn\'t judge whether my surgeons approach of excision was better than a wound care center. He just said he\'d have to see it in person and he\'s in CA.

- He never does penile enhancement...but he\'s fixed tons of them. He wouldn\'t implicate the elist implant, but it sounded like that was one of the situations from a vague comment about \"fully hard implants taken out\".

- He commented that we are the hardest guys to please because he can rarely get us back to normal, and we\'re a population more concerned with size and aesthetics than most...and the best he can often do is get it back to \"acceptable\" but not perfect & large like many of us would like...since complications cause compromises.

I think I\'m probably best off with my current doc, rather than traveling to CA and seeing what he has to say.

The chat was very brief...but that\'s it in a nutshell.

Thank you for providing this very detailed and interesting summary of your call. Dr Gelman is a very highly regarded reconstructive Urologist. I find it surprising he has done corrections on many PMMA patients. This speaks to the concern several of us have that some of the bad outcomes are not reported on PhalloBoards. This is too bad, because it would give us a clearer picture of the true risks and possible options when things go wrong.

At least it is nice to know there is another highly competent surgeon out there willing to help you and other guys with PMMA problems.

Excellent post, we are in dire need of information like this. thanks again.

Thanks - I think \"many\" was more just his quick way of saying - it didn\'t just happen once...and that he\'s experienced with it. I can\'t imagine it would be more than a few per month. Only around 800-1000 guys even have it, right? I think that\'s the number they said.
