Well guys never thought i had the courage to seek help and advice but here i am. I went through lengthning surgury (suspensary ligament cut) 1 round of pmma & 2 penile implant (titan coloplast) both times i got infections. Mainly because my urologist says the pmma is just everywhere and it contaminants the insides. Now im left to take out my current infected implant. My question is do you know if i can ever acheive a regular errection without a penile prothesis? I just feel defeated and helpless at this point.

This is a question that your surgeon that is performing the removal will have to answear. Nobody here nows how your tissue is affected. 
Sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with your penile surgery. But, it is practically a regular basis for guys to be in your situation unfortunately, in this pathetic field of PE surgeries.
So, aside the fact that you went through some bad surgery, you practically splashed cca. 6000-8000 dollars for you to end up here and ask this questions...Jesus Christ.
Unfu...ingbeliveble how the hell in 2019 with all the advancements in technology applied in medicine, they just cannot find a way to safely yet radically improve one's penis.
By now, given the importance of this aspect, you should be able to go to a clinic and say... i'll have a nine inch please.
Good luck and hope that someone here can give you an answear and to find a way to get back on track.

Did you have any previous infection(s) after your PMMA but before the penile implants?
It looks like an easy excuse for post-surgical infections.
We have many patients that have gone through facelifts or inflatable prosthesis after full facial reconstruction procedures or penile injections of PMMA and never had secondary infections.
I'm just curious.

@Avanti Derma never had any previous infections. Only infections that occured was after my first penile implant. Im on my third procedure now. I have had 1 titan coloplast then after the infecton and semi rigid then back to a 3 piece and im in the proccess of having it removed soon. I just feel defeated and worried i will never gain a regular errection again. I made a mistake of not doing proper research and nose diving into my PE path.

As far as I have read, once you have such kind of intracavernous implant, your natural abolity to have an erection is gone for good. But have they tried to fight the infection before removal? Does your body reject it? Isnt there a possibility to reimplant another device?

@lordoftorture thats what i was afraid of originally when i got the penile implant my errections were fine. I just felt they werent as hard after i cut my suspensory ligament. Therefore i went ahead and went with the 3 piece implant. To answer the question once there are signs of infection you have to remove it completely. Wait for the body n penis to heal then try again months later. Iv been doing allt of that and havent been able to have any swxual activies since march which freakin sucks. Next week i removed my implant yet again and dont know what the next move is. Esp if i cannot even achieve a regular errection i dont even know what to do next. Any suggestions guys... real bummer

After you going on implant route you can't get back your natural erectile function. This is so obvious. Who was your implant surgeon? Who made revision? There's definitely should be some correlation between any prior procedure and infection rate. It's very ignorant to think that PMMA before IPP has no deal with increase of infection rate.

When you have a surgery of this kind you must know where an excellent wound care Dr.  is or may be even an Infectious Disease Dr. I had both of these after I got an sepsis, bad infection after BACK SURGERY.  What been great bout the back surgery it's has improved my ED upwards of 80%. Nerves at L2 & L3 can cause ED problems by pinching the nerve going to the penis. I believe that they are many guys that could have their ED reversed by correcting lumbar, low back issues. After surgery at L2 & L3 fusing a disk my ED is 80% improved. There are spine anatomy diagrams on the web check problems L2 &L3 and L3 & L4. I not saying there cannot be other issues.  JW

I don't perform major surgery and intracavernosal implants are not my thing at all.
However, for what I read, it seems to be that you were not thoroughly informed of the facts of an implant like Titan Touch or any other brand of intracavernosal implants, being them inflatable or solid:
  • The implant replaces the erectile tissues of the cavernosum bodies, and the alteration is irreversible.
  • The only erectile tissue that is left after the surgery is the secondary (weaker) corpus spongiosum which gives turgency to the glans but is not capable to create a full erection on its own.
Sad news buddy, but it is what it is. I hope I don't sound too blunt; I'm trying to be factual.
On the other hand, the infections are created by new microbial contamination of a surgical wound, not from an inert substance that was settled and accepted by the body.
Yes, the presence of PMMA in your tissues could play some role in the surgical or healing process, but if there was no infection before the implants, your PMMA was sterile.
Furthermore, PMMA creates new collagen that creates new vascularity that brings macrophages and other immune factors that protect against infection the way normal tissues do. PMMA itself never gets infected once it is established in the body.
Your only alternative is to heal from the current infection, make absolutely sure that there is no subclinical infection, go for the third inflatable prosthesis under the strictest sterile conditions and hope that you get what you need this time.
