  • hi again

    i just came back today from my lef I/o.

    i want to tnk u all ,for supporting my questions .( this fourm help me a lot on this hard days).

    i want to ask another question ->
    The surgeon put me a prosthesis that feel like a rock , i ask them about it and they told me ,that this is ,what type of prosthesis the hospital using ,and for his opinion it feel hard too.

    for my opinion it not logical (with all the silicon industry ,there must be a good prosthesis ,that have similar texture as a areal testis.)

    is anybody here know ,where i can order/buy good testis prosthesis ???

    It seems the small market for these implants keeps affecting suppliers, which have included Mentor and Silimed. One forum member recommended AART (style 6).
    right inguinal orchiectomy 6/5/2003 > nonseminoma, stage I > surveillance > L-RPLND 6/24/2005 for recurrence, suspected teratoma but found seminoma, stage II > chylous ascites until 9/2005 > surveillance and "all clear" since

      Hi Scott:

      I guess I'm that guy. I hope no one thinks I'm a shill for AART. I guess I'm a very happy customer who has a matched set. I think its of great value to have one in hand and be able to give it a test squeeze and look at the size in comparison to what you had. I was very discouraged with what Mentor had size wise and felt it was too stiff. The semi solid types coming out scare me a little because of the possibility of them breaking and leaking.

      I'm jaded because AART really jumped through a few flaming hoops for me to insure my surgeon got a sample and the fda info in zero to less time so they were available for my surgery.
