I developed Peyronie's disease about 10 years ago. I guess there wasn't much treatment then because my doctor put me on vitamin E for a couple months ,but it didn't help. I had almost a 90 degree bend to the left and had torn tissue on the left side. He did surgery to correct it and he did a penis implant. As a result I lost about 50 to 60 percent of size. Now after about a year and a half to two years my implant no longer works, but I am still able to get a erection but have a problem keeping it for very long!! Now at best I can only get maybe half an erection, but can't keep it very long!! Is there any hope for me now and can anything be done to improve size now after all theses years. Will I be able to ever get a hard on again and keep it?
Any doctor who performs a penis implant surgery is supposed to completely and in great detail explain what he is going to do and tell you exactly what is going to happen as result of surgery: what you can expect in the near and distant future, your risks and rewards, as well well as your odds for partial and complete success, the pros and cons of that kind of surgery, and if the changes are permanent or reversible, and what it might take to reverse the surgery – all before actually doing the implant surgery. This is called informed consent; it means the surgeon must inform you of you everything you need to know in order to be able to make an intelligent decision about whether you want the surgery or not. I hope this was done for you.
I suggest that you contact that doctor who did your penile implant and tell him the problems you are having. Ask him those same questions you have asked me, and do not let him push you out of the office until you have a clear answer you can understand. Bring someone with you who you trust for this discussion. Tell the doctor that you want that person in the room to help you process the information he will give to you. Do not go into the room without that person with you because you need to have someone there to catch ideas and information you might miss. You have a right to this person being there so do not let anyone tell you that it cannot be done.
No matter what kind of answers or promises you get from this first surgeon who did the actual operation, then please, please, get a second opinion from another surgeon before you actually let anyone cut on you again.
