I said fuck it and scheduled pmma. I\'m confident enough in it now. I do have faith in ellanse but having to go back for years on end and constantly having a penis that is changing shape and uniformity is too much mental anguish. I\'d rather focus on a few rounds of pmma and be done with it.

I\'m not sure. After I paid my deposit, I had some questions, and the office manager was forwarding my email to Wade. He hasn\'t responded yet. But I\'m patient, I know they are busy. When I do get additional information, I\'ll post it in here.

Yes, this email was received last week.

Did he mention why they weren\'t offering it anymore? I really need to get some details nailed down on the temp fillers before I go down there.

All,

This is the pricing I got back from Dr C\'s office with regard to temp fillers:

-Radiesse: which can last up to 18 months. The cost for this procedure is $3000. Patients can expect to gain .5 to .75 inches in erect circumference. -Ellanse: which can last up to three years. The cost for this procedure is $4200

Everything in Red was cut and paste from their email.

I wanted to put this up, because I was reading a thread from 2014 I think, and it said that Dr C\'s office wasn\'t using Ellanse anymore. It looks like as of right now, they are. Which is what I think I\'m going to go for based on a little research I have done.

ANYONE that has had temp fillers (whether or not with Dr C) is encouraged to post up in this thread. I would love to see some results compiled here. I\'ll start a patient log/progress thread when I get my appointment set.

What I\'m having a hard time finding out.. is if there is a problem with this stuff moving around while you are hard during sex. Is this \"squishier\" than the PMMA? Or does it set up?

I *think* I\'m taking the \"safer\" route here. But between now and my appointment, I\'ll be doing more research.

Gulp.


You will not notice it moving around during sex - at least that is what my patients report. Good choice and good luck!

JD after all this time why did you decide to go for PMMA and not a temp filler like HA? One pro with PMMA is that I think (and its mostly a guess tho) that you can still do manual PE sucessfully after PMMA but with HA its like a layer of liquid in your penis that might not be as good to work manually with.

I feel ya. I\'ve been looking at pmma for a few years now. I\'m like 90% sure I\'m just gonna roll with 10%. I\'m going down there for a procedure for sure. I\'ve spent too long and too much time thinking. Its more of \"paralysis by analysis\" at this point. If I don\'t get pmma, I\'ll get a temp filler. Either way, I\'m getting something before 2017. I\'m just very level headed and cautious. I don\'t think pmma is all that great of an idea and the unknowns are my biggest hang-up but at this point I\'ve gotta do something. Fuck I live a long days drive from TJ and and money is no issue. I\'ve just been steady analyzing it for a long time.

You might be right, we\'ll see. It does make me nervous that we really don\'t have any long term reports on PMMA in this situation (10+ years) and frankly too many reports of lumps, nodules etc as well.

He was offering Ellanse for a bit (it is still on his site), but when I contacted Wade about a month ago- they no longer offered it. The Ellanse was interesting as it has a 3 yr version. Dr Oates has tried it (although in a very small quantity) and liked the results so far and is going to move ahead with more patients.
Radiesse should last 1 yr plus easy. But I would ask if they have a PCL replacement for Ellanse.
Wade told me the VAST majority of work was done with PMMA in the office hence the lack of pics.

hope this helps.
