Sorry to read this. Feel for you Fat Mike. I have only had pmma, but worry when reading things like this. Things like this seem more common with silicone. Regarding your cysts. Have you had that always even before doing anything? Do you know why you have them? You also mentioned granulomas. Sometimes this is just a lump and do nothing. I am a bit confused after reading the thread. Can granulomas from pmma give necrosis years later?

I'm still healing with weeks to go (at least). Since all of my skin was removed down to Buck's fascia before a skin graft was applied, I no longer have any dermal filler in my penis or a cyst. To create an even result with the graft and reduce the buried penis effect, the surgeon also removed the peno-scrotal webbing. My scrotum skin had been enlarged due to the silicone filler and years of pumping and PGE1, and the portions that webbed into the penis had merged with formerly huge girth there.

The cyst(s) was probably caused by PMMA. On my last visit in 2018 where I had an additional 25cc of silicone added to my scrotum, Dr. C identified one cyst, but it's possible there was a second. Cysts are great breeding grounds for infections, and they can become infected over time on their own. If the skin becomes compromised this can accelerate the process. Foreign bodies such as implants and dermal filler also increase the risk of infection if the skin becomes compromised. Based upon unusually fast growth in my penis girth in the months that followed my last visit to Dr. C (originally thought to be all from PGE1), it seems likely that some silicone migrated to my penis. Additionally, I previously had also had silicone microdrops as a touch up on two occasions following PMMA. Additionally, I had a history of cysts elsewhere on my body (two different locations), so I was very likely at higher risk (predisposed). Perhaps that should be part of a pre-PMMA questionaire (medical history) in order to screen people more likely to have complications: "have you ever had a cyst?"

There were two initial locations that became compromised/perforated following my skin peeling like a sun burn - probable allergic reaction to silicone. One of the infected ulcers was directly over the former cyst, and the second may have also been over an unidentified/unconfirmed cyst. If you read the log of Miracle 8x7 he also had skin peeling leading to infection, that he's confident occurred as a reaction to silicone. My scrotum has repeatedly peeled in the same fashion; however, my scrotum skin heals very fast (apparently this is normal/common).

Regarding the so-called granuloma: that was my doctor's assessment. However, according to Wikipedia: in medical practice, doctors occasionally use the term "granuloma" in its more literal meaning: "a small nodule". Since a small nodule can represent anything from a harmless nevus to a malignant tumor, this usage of the term is not very specific. in my experience and from what I've read nodules, ridges, and other irregularities are common with PMMA. From reading many progress reports and my own personal experience you can live with these indefinitely as long as there is no pain/discomfort, swelling, redness, infection, etc. I read that complications from granulomas requiring surgical intervention are relatively rare . I didn't have any pain or discomfort, just dissatisfaction from the PMMA irregularities, which is why I sought out the touch-up rounds.
Fuck silicone! I was one of the unlucky 3% who had an allergic reaction to it. That may sounds like good odds, but the risk is huge. It also migrates if injected in large quantities (e.g. in the scrotum).

PMMA works, but is prone to irregularities or worse (cysts in my case). Pumping works. Clamping works, but is dangerous. PGE1 works, but there is risk of infection (especially if you have dermal fillers like silicone).

Pre-PMMA size: 6.5 x 7 erect length/girth

2017 stats: 6 x 10.25" flaccid, BPEL: 7 x 10.8" (BPFSL: 7.5 x 10.8")**it shrunk to 6 x 9 flaccid and 7 x 9.75 erect when I stopped taking the PGE1 regularly.

April 2018: 6x10.25 flaccid and 7x10.8 erect when off PGE1. 7x11.25 BPEL on PGE1.

June 2018: 11.5 inch FG, 11.75 inch EG, foreskin regrew and I had head coverage

October 2018: Cyst ulcerated and wounds infected.

Spring - Summer 2019: 100% skin loss due to necrosis and planned surgeries. Multiple reconstructive surgeries accomplished.

I measured erect today...very pitiful length - 4.25 inches NBPEL x 6.5 inch EG. Bone pressed there's more length, but it doesn't make me feel any better that inches of my former length are buried within my body. I also know that 6.5 inch girth is a lot compared to average, but to me it feels small (I was 7 inch girth pre-PMMA, PGE1, etc).

Still healing...no sex or masturbation for months (since March) weighs on your quality of life

So you initial treatment was with Dr. Casavantes and Avanti?  I have heard two horror stories and only one good account.  How can you tell if you're allergic before you go in?  Thanks and praying for you to get well; no one deserves that...

All my dermal filler treatments were with Avanti. I've read that allergic reactions to PMMA are much more rare then silicone due to the material properties. Though I've read of cases where people were allergic to the carrier used by one brand of PMMA. If you stick with PMMA and opt out of silicone microdrops used for touch-ups or silicone scrotum enhancements, then you will significantly lower your risk. Dr. Loria uses silicone for enlargement, so that is a massive risk people are taking. You will likely get irregularities (e.g. nodules) from PMMA, and you will likely want to correct them with touch-up rounds, and they will likely offer you the "Smooth Finish" with silicone microdrops. Also, if you've ever had cysts anywhere on your body, especially more than one, you should consider that you're more at risk of developing cysts from PMMA as well -- I did. These are breeding grounds for infections -- ticking time bombs if left untreated.

BTW - girth is much easier to gain than length if you're willing to put in the time. I've bought a new stretcher to try and regain lost length. I previously had one but threw it away when I couldn't fit it on anymore. When it did fit, I didn't use it often enough to be effective since the glans would slip below the strap despite various tactics I used. I bought one of the RestoreX stretchers in the Mayo Clinic thread on this forum since they made a superior design to restrain the glans. If it works as comfortably as it looks, then I'll be able to wear it the required hours to have an effect. I also plan to visit a urologist (or two if needed) to see about surgical intervention. Perhaps they can remove scar tissue, skin adhesions, or (last resort and less likely) cut or adjust ligaments to allow more length to project from inside my body again. Once I get length back in check, I figure I can gain a couple inches of girth relatively easily. Though with my new "thinness" (a mere 6.25 inch girth), I will have to use somewhat shorter needles for PGE1 injection then I used before.

Hi Fatmike. How is the healing going?
