Well boys I've joined the class of 2019 Ellanse club. Dr. Carney gave me 10 mL of Ellanse-E earlier today. I actually fainted briefly (out cold for a minute maybe) after the 6th or 7th 1 mL syringe, luckily I had the sense to warn the doc and lay down before it happened. This really surprised me since I regularly donate blood and haven't had an issue before. Dr. Carney likes to do the injection while the patient is standing, so this was likely a contributing factor. He finished up while I was lying down which I much preferred.

So far it looks good in my opinion. I've been using the hotel coffee maker to heat water for a hot towel before massaging, which I've been doing every 1-2 hrs. My technique basically consists of rolling the penis between my palms with a decent amount of force from glans to base. I'm using the a clone of the PeniMaster Pro attached to a bungee cord to give the penis a moderate stretch during massage (and when not massaging to keep it from turtling). Before each massage session I try to get an erection to see which areas may need more attention. I made the mistake of getting an erection while the cock sock was on which resulted in moderate compression near the base, forming a little "valley" which I have since smoothed out. I'm a bit hesitant sleeping with the cock sock on for this reason due to inevitable nocturnal erections. Did any of you other Ellanse alums have an issue with this? I've done my research, but any recommendations, things you found helpful, things to avoid, would be greatly appreciated!

My pre-op dimensions are very good (5.25" mid-shaft girth, 6.5" NBP length) and never held me back. I just wanted a little more, and if the aesthetics turn out looking good this will probably be my one and only round until the collagen begins to degrade after 4+ yrs.

Congrats my man.   Happy for you.    Cant wait to hear how the journey unfolds for you. 

I never slept without the sock for the first and second round.  The First round I was timid and scared and worried and all that.  I wore the one sock and didnt think it was enough. 

Second round,  I used a lot of extra sock,  I wrapped the whole shaft with at least 3 or 4 socks and tad extra at the base (way down at the base ).   Set a timer to wake me up after 3 or 4 hours.   got up, rolled, re-wrapped.  back to sleep.   After 3 -4 days.  its all set.   So only brief zombie ism.

Thanks Texas, I ended up falling asleep in a seated position with the bungee cord applying moderate stretch to my unit the whole night, wearing the cock sock as well and waking up every 3 hrs or so to check on it. Sleep quality was terrible, so the last 3 hrs I removed the bungee/PenimasterPro and slipped into bed, cock sock still on. When I woke up there was a lot of fluid buildup on the underside just below the glans so I've been focusing on this area while massaging, which I do every 2 hrs or so. I think it's mostly swelling rather than product, but it's difficult to tell. I think I'm going to stick with trying to sleep seated with the bungee cord as before since this really kept everything smooth and even in my opinion. I'm willing to sacrifice sleep quality if it means a better result, we'll see how it goes.

Thanks Chester, that's great to hear! At day 2 post-op the swelling has gone down quite a bit and bruising is beginning to subside.

Damn, the end result looks great Astro!!! I’m glad the procedure went well for ya. Any bumps forming or anything? Can’t wait to see the measurements after the swelling has gone fully down!!

Anybody used cialis to prevent turtling during recovery? This helps me retain plump length while flaccid but I’m wondering if you all see increased erection occurrence as a potential hindrance

I did take a 5 mg Cialis tablet each day post-op which I believe helped somewhat with turtling. Plus it helps with getting an erection on demand which I tried to do before each massage session to get a sense of what areas to focus on.

Ok cool good to know. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your results so far.

The thing that I’m most concerned about is the post op stretching. I’ve tried using extenders and they just don’t work on my dick, as soon as I get in an extender my dick starts retracting and wants to resist the stretch. 

How important do you think it is to be at max stretched length in the after care period? I could probably be at half stretched length without the retraction triggering but any further and my guy wants turtle up and hide.

Just focus on stretching as good as you can with out hurting yourself for those first few days while the product settles  Those are the most crucial. Obviously the further the better, but at risking an injury.  
After the first week you can around with different stretchers and strengths.
