An update from my previous post and what has been done since my implant was removed. You can look back at my previous post to see what happened.
After i returned home from the hospital, i was healing up slowly and was able to get an erection. Prior to my second follow up appointment, the area where they put in a drain tube after removal of the implant, was not closing. I initially thought it was caused by scar tissue cause i could see something white. I used some tweezers to pull on it and it ended up being some kind of gauze material. At my second follow up appointment the Dr said that gauze/mesh has to come out or the wound will not heal. Said the surgery should only take about 20 minutes. Fast forward to surgery, which i just had on may 6th. I woke up from anesthesia almost 3 hours later. The doctor contacted my wife explaining what was happening. The mesh that was put in by Elist became embedded into the nerves near the head of my penis. The Dr stated if he removed what is embedded that i will never have an erection again and i will also be numb and not feel anything in that area. They took out all they could. The Dr stated it is a foreign body and he is not sure if it will become infected at some point or if it will never get infected. The Dr said if it becomes infected they have no choice but to cut it out and at that point i would have to look into having a pump prothesis or something like that done in order to have sex again. I have had some erections since the surgery but not many and also not as hard as they used to be. Im still in the early stages of healing from surgery and hoping the erections recover when im healed.
. It is slightly curved and i have lost some length since the surgery to have it removed. As of yet i dont know if i will have any more loss of length or more curvature from this recent surgery. Only time will tell.
I talked to the investigator after my first surgery and he said i was not a candidate for his investigation due to my implant being put in a few years back. I have no clue if Elist can be held responsible for the mesh issue. If anyone knows, please let me know. I contacted lawyers after my first surgery and they all seem to say there is no case. I wonder if they say that because nobody has come out and tried to hold the Dr responsible for what is going on.
Hoping everything heals up and no further issues arise.
Thanks for letting me vent out my frustrations.
So sorry about what happened to you! The Medical Board does need more recent cases to go after Jamshid Elist/James Elist. He and his staff are so good at making excuses that it is disgusting. I still blame myself for falling for their trap. I really do hope that your situation would get better in the future. I would need more surgeries to remove the scar (and treat curvature) myself. It's scary.
