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.
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.
