Had R.P. in 04 and tired of pads and using Muse which is only good if you are standing up.I am thinking of getting surgery that will take care of both problems. Anyone had both surgeries and how was the outcome? Thanks Ron

    Had both artificial sphincter and inflatable penile implant installed. Both working well. Not perfect, but definitely fixed the problems

    Hi Harvs. How many pads do you still use?

    Harvs, Just found this site and found this thread. I am desperately looking for guys like you who have had these surgeries. Hope you will help answer some questions because I am scheduled for both AUS and penine implant surgery... at the same time. I am 14-15 months post radical open prostate removal. I never regained continence in spite of trying everything possible. I still drip, drip, drip, holding nothing in my bladder except when I lie or sit down.
    I don't know exactly how this forum works, but I sure need all of your first-hand experiences regarding the AUS & penile implant.
    Can your or anyone else help with the following questions?

    1. Did you have both devices implanted at same surgery?
    2. How long were you off work?
    3. We all know sex is not the same after prostate removal, but are you enjoying it more with the prosthesis?
    4. What devices (brand) did you receive?
    5. How long ago did you have the implants?
    6. Do devices work as you expected?
    7. How old are you? (I am 65)
    6. What else can you share?
    I may go ahead and start a new thread in order to perhaps attract anyone else who can help.
    Thanks,

    Hi Ron

    Using one "generic" (Longs Drugs) light weight Guard for Men. It doesn't really get full even after a long day with strenuous activity. Was previously using 6 to 8 heavy duty depends pads.

    Still very happy

    Hi BobbyTom

    Here are the answers to your questions

    Did you have both devices implanted at same surgery?
    Yes

    How long were you off work?
    One week

    We all know sex is not the same after prostate removal, but are you enjoying it more with the prosthesis?
    Theres less external physical sensation with the implant. But the fact that its always there and never gives up, more than compensates

    What devices (brand) did you receive?
    Both were AMS

    How long ago did you have the implants?
    About a year ago

    Do devices work as you expected?
    Yes - really great. I highly recommend

    How old are you? (I am 65)
    63
    What else can you share?
    Send me an email at [email protected] if you have more questions
