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.
