  • testicular implant question

    hi, first off i would like to say that i am new to the forums and that im hoping this site helps. about 3 years ago i was diagnosed with TC and went through a full year of chemotherapy and i am fully recovered. recently i decided to get a implant which is going to be done on monday. as far as sexual activites such as oral sex or masturbation how long do you guys think i should lay off on that for? thanx for the help in advance.

    A full year of chemotherapy? Yikes, that's not typical. I'm glad you're doing well now.

    I would ask your doctor about how quickly you can resume sexual activity after your implant, but I don't expect you'll be told you need to wait very long.

        yup im doing 100% fine, thanx for the concern. i was diagnosed with stage 1 but i guess my doctor wanted me to under go a fully year just in case since i was only 14 the year i was diagnosed. im not 100% sure about what type of chemo i got but every week i had the small less painful treatment and then every 3 weeks i had the strong treatment that would make me sick and nautious for a couple of days. I did not undergo any radiation thankfully. hope this helps to answer some of your questions.

          I'm having trouble with this story. No doctor would prescribe a year of chemotherapy for stage I testicular cancer.

              Taking matters into your own hands after getting the implant

              I sought out the board today for the first time mainly to share with anyone needing encouragement that I was rendered a uniballer and underwent chemotherapy almost two years ago and am now the father of a two-week-old girl. I had banked sperm but conceived her the old fashioned way. My wife and I were actively trying so we're delighted but do be forewarned that an orchiectomy and chemotherapy are not forms of birth control.

              Now onto the implant. I can only speak from my personal experience but I absolutely love mine and cannot stand it when people are quick to disuade a guy from getting one. I had asked my urologist about it and he was more than happy to oblige, so I had mind put in at thetime of the orchiectomy. To answer your specific questions as to when you can reconvene self-abuse, you could seriously do it when you got home if you felt like it. If the doctor implants it through your original scar the only thing you have to be cautious of is hitting the incision on the downstroke. You're not likely to pull anything loose but it's not going to feel too good to pound on your wound and what's the point of jacking off if it doesn't feel good?

              If you've got any other questions about implants, please feel free to email me. I don't know how often I'll check the board but you're welcome to send something to cocktailswithkevin (at) hotmail (dot) com. Incidentally I also have a blog at cocktailswithkevin (dot) com, and I even mention my fauxnad there. My wife calls it "Eggy" and we sometimes would joke that it was actually Eggy that got her pregnant.

              Let me know how it goes -- the surgery I mean; not necessarily the masturbation.

                No stage! The only way treatment would drag on would be for recurrent disease.

                  Congratulations! What better birth control could there be than having a two-week-old in the house needing attention!
