Ok 2 weeks out. Pain was a little more than expected . Still pretty swollen. At this point looks like I am going to have a good bit of retraction so sure wish I could start Hanging. Nocturnal erections are getting less painful. Def can see the edge of the graft towards the glans, stops about 3/4 of Inch before glans , I guess I am going to have a taper. Not sure what my gains are yet , but ballpark looks to be about an 1 Inch midshaft.
Thanks for starting a progress report and good luck with your healing. 3/4\" before the head sounds like Dr Rosenthal? I know he doesn\'t use an incision below the glans, so often leaves the graft a bit short. You can get some filler put in to smooth that out though.
Thanks yep you are correct, Dr. R. I was wondering the same thing since he no longer does the glans incision. Guess I will wait and see how things turn out, may not be as obvious when all healed. Not sure it will be as obvious with an Erection. 4 more weeks - seems like a lifetime LOL
I don\'t think he has done the glans incision in over a decade. I remember way back at the old yahoo surgical group the issue of the graft not reaching the end with Dr R cropped up. Maybe he started again and then stopped again. But it wont be a big deal anyway. Like I said, you can always add a little filler if it\'s noticeable, so there is a simple, low cost solution if it comes to that.
I know what the wait is like. It does seem like a lifetime!
Hoddle never ceases to amaze me with his phalloplasty insight. And that Yahoo Group... geez. I remember how everything was so hush hush, and whenever some alleged new procedure hit the block, the Admin (Ken I think it was?) would make it even more mysterious. I was always annoyed with the forum... more hearsay than facts.
Dnap, thanks for sharing, you\'ll find threads both here and in the old PB (always wise to check out the older version of this forum) that can be of help. The old forum is found at phalloplasty.proboards.com/
So last night I had an Erection and I tell you what there is a pain on top near the glans where there must be a suture in there holding the Belladerm. It even pulls the glans slightly up, I sure hope this suture dissolves or when I start Hanging this resolves
Sorry to be so straight forward but pics? I\'ve tried the whole jelqiing thing and I think I got decent results but some loss of Erection quality and that\'s no Bueno! Thinking about surgery... Oh hope you heal very well and get Awesome results!!
Plan on pics when I get a little more healed up. I am about 2 1/2 weeks into healing. At this point I would say I got about an Inch in EG , but still hurts like a MOFO to really know for sure, and I have some def loss of length but then again I feel the Hanging will fix that once I can start doing that. I came down with the flu 3 days after surgery so I may be a little slower in healing.
