  • prosthetic..or not?

    good morning..
    my ex hubby was asked by his doctor to think about getting a prosthetic right away during his surgery on Monday...since he'll already be open and all..
    what do you guys think? should he?
    he's feeling really wierd about a fake ball.
    he doesn't know what to do...help please...

    It comes down to a personal decision. If you click the Search link in the blue bar and enter the term "prosthetic," you'll find some good past discussion on this topic.

        There is really no wrong decision as long as you are comfortable with whatever you decide.

        For myself, I declined since no one can really notice, not even when I am naked.

            How's he feeling? Recovering well? Be sure to make him get up and walk around. He'll be glad later!
