Patient Comments: Penile Implants - Intercourse

Do you find sex as satisfying with the penile implant? Do you experience any problems?

Comment from: s kumar, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: May 22

I had undergone penile inflatable prosthesis during 2001. Since severe infection occurred post-surgery, the prosthesis was removed after 20 days. For the last 13 years I am without sex though I have lot of sexual urge.
