As you saw from the previous pics, I got very bruised very quickly. The bruising was even more extensive when I woke up on day 2. I had morning wood, as usual. What was unusual was that it took me a minute to figure out that it was an erection. It was very soft, but it stood up.
I was late for my first follow up appointment with Ian and Dr. Morales, but they fit me in no problem. Ian massaged out a bubble that had formed overnight, and showed me what was wrong with my massaging technique. Now, I think it’s important that everyone considering this know that this does not feel good. I was also quite sore, and massaging aggravates that. But I’m sure it’ll be worth the discomfort. Massaging is also surprising in that it really doesn’t feel like you’re moving a fluid around. It just feels like you’re compressing a spongy substance. I saw Ian three times on day 2, which was fantastic. I didn’t expect that amount of follow up care. On the third session, because I was so inflamed, he gave me fifteen minutes of LED therapy. I don’t know how valuable that is, but it was nice of them to throw that in for free.
On day 3, I woke up with an erection again. Oh my God it was so thick. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my tape measure, but I wrapped a dollar bill almost all the way around it. There was about a quarter inch gap left over. A dollar bill is about 6 1/8, which means that my girth was about 6 3/8. That’s a solid inch beyond my starting girth. This still wasn’t full EQ, but I did have one concern almost immediately: I was down by about an inch in EL. My guess is that it will return as the swelling and inflammation go down. I very, very much hope that’s the case. The base was still quite sore, and I’m guessing there’s a correlation there. Still, it’s disconcerting to lose that much length, even for a short time. That morning, I got another massage from Ian, who moved some product away from the head. I asked about the loss of erect length, and he confirmed that it does indeed have to do with inflammation at the base. It’s totally normal and should go away. On the second session of the day, he moved some product away from the underside. He and Dr. Morales agreed that I was doing very well. On the third session, he did more of the same, and that was it. My dick felt quite a bit better than it did 24 hours earlier, and I was a happy patient when I left.
On day 4, I woke up feeling better, but surprisingly not with morning wood. My dick was considerably less red than it was when I went to bed, and still enormous. It also seemed to be hanging lower. Flaccid hang is a considerable factor for me, so I was very pleased. This was also my last day in Tijuana. The driver picked me up at the hotel lobby in the morning, and I was off home. For anyone who has never done the San Ysidro border crossing, it’s a trip. You get to use the special medical lane, and it only took us a half hour or so in line. You can clearly see that everyone else has been waiting much longer. There are vendors walking up and down the line, selling all kinds of stuff, and Customs agents with dogs sniffing for drugs. I was a little nervous about what I would tell the border agent, but it was pretty easy. He asked my business in Mexico, and I just said that I had a medical procedure done. He asked if I was bringing anything back with me, and I said I had two medications. He didn’t ask any further questions. I got to the airport three hours before my flight, and there was no line whatsoever at security. I don’t think that’s typical in San Diego, so I counted myself lucky. Then I just hung out at the bar for a long time before my flight. When I got home in the late afternoon, my dick looked even better than it did in the morning. The inflammation had continued going down, and the natural color was coming back. Even so, I still haven’t had a decent erection since the procedure. It’s been much softer than normal, and it’s strange that I sometimes don’t notice that I even have it. Hopefully that improves over the next few days.
My opinion of Avanti Derma is overwhelmingly positive. Dr. Morales and Ian were both exceptionally diligent and attentive. You can even text Ian after hours, and he does answer. They both said they were very confident in my result, and I am too. Even though my erection quality is way below where I want it, and the length has decreased significantly, it’s still absolutely enormous. I’m also not getting erect nearly as often as I’m accustomed to, and I hope that changes soon. Basically, being a few days in, so far so good. The best advice I can give to anyone thinking about doing PMMA is to stay for as long as you can afterward, and let them help with the aftercare.
In case anyone is curious, the three drugs they gave me were Cafelexina, Tamsulosin, and ibuprofen. One is an antibiotic, one is a prostate medication to help you hang lower, and one is an anti-inflammatory.
