– FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS REV 12/22/2016

  • QUESTION: WHEN CAN I HAVE SEX?
  • ANSWER: NO SEX FOR 21-28 DAYS AFTER YOUR PROCEDURE. THIS INCLUDES VAGINAL SEX, ANAL SEX, ORAL SEX, AND MASTURBATION. IF SEX OCCURS BEFORE THE 21-DAY PERIOD THERE IS AN INCREASED RISK OF AN UNDESIRABLE PENILE SHAPE DUE TO FILLER MATERIAL SHIFTING. WAIT THE FULL 21- 28 DAYS IF YOU HAVE SKIN CUTS THAT NEED TO HEAL.
  • QUESTION: WHAT DO I DO IF THE GLANS (OR HEAD OF THE PENIS) SUBMERGES UNDER THE WRAP?
  • ANSWER: REMOVE THE HALF FOLD UNDERNEATH THE GLANS, THEN FOLD DOWN THE BANDAGE AND ATTEMPT TO PULL THE GLANS OUT. AFTER GLANS IS OUT OF BANDAGE, PLACE HALF FOLD BACK ON WITH MILD TENSION.
  • QUESTION: WHEN CAN I WORK-OUT AT THE GYM?
  • ANSWER: IT IS MANDATORY TO WAIT 7 DAYS, THEN YOU CAN START A LIGHT (50% INTENSITY) UPPER BODY WORK OUT FOR 7 DAYS. AFTER A FULL 14 DAYS YOU CAN RESUME UPPER AND LOWER BODY FULL ACTIVITY, BUT STILL NO DEEP SQUATTING OR ABDOMINAL CRUNCHES UNTIL DAY 28. UNDERSTAND THAT MORE ACTIVITY, WHILE THE BANDAGES ARE ON, CAUSES SKIN IRRITATION AND MORE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF THE WRAP GETS WET WITH URINE?
  • ANSWER: TRY TO WASH WITH SOAP AND WATER THEN BLOW DRY, OR RE-WRAP IF NECESSARY (BUT ONLY AFTER DAY 2 OF PROCEDURE IF EXTREMELY NEEDED, NOT EARLIER).

  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I HAVE PAIN IN THE PUBIC AND/OR SCROTAL (TESTICULAR) AREAS?
  • ANSWER: SOME SWELLING OR TENDERNESS IS NORMAL. PLACE ICE ON PUBIC/SCROTAL AREA FOR 15-20 MINUTES EVERY HOUR.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I HAVE SWELLING IN THE PUBIC AND/OR SCROTAL AREAS?
  • ANSWER: IF YOU EXPERIENCE EVEN MINOR SWELLING IN THE PUBIC AND OR SCROTAL AREAS, YOU WILL NEED TO INCREASE THE TENSION ON THE HALF-FOLD AT THE BASE OF THE PENILE SHAFT. THIS IS DONE BY FIRST REMOVING THE RUBBER BAND, THEN REMOVE THE HALF-FOLD, THEN PLACE BACK ON WITH HIGHER TENSION.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I SEE BLISTERS ON MY GLANS (HEAD OF PENIS) OR SHAFT SKIN?
  • ANSWER: THIS IS NORMAL, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO POP THE BLISTERS.
  • QUESTION: WHAT CAN I DO IF MY GLANS IS VERY SENSITIVE OR BEGINS TO HURT?

  • QUESTION: WHEN CAN I HAVEANOTHER TREATMENT?
  • ANSWER: 4-6 WEEKS AFTER YOUR FIRST TREATMENT, OR ANY TIME LATER.
  • QUESTION: THE RING; WHEN DO I ADJUST THE INTERNAL DIAMETER OR HOLE SIZE?
  • ANSWER: RING MUST REMAIN ON THE BASE OF THE SHAFT WITH HIGH TENSION AND SNUG ONTO THE PENILE SHAFT AT ALL TIMES (SNUG, MEANING THAT THE RING IS TOUCHING THE VERY BASE OF THE PENILE SHAFT WITH NO OR VERY LIGHT TENSION) IF THE RING IS TOO LARGE AND IS NOT SNUG FITTING, YOU CAN ADJUST THIS BY TAPING SOME BROWN STRETCH GAUZE TO THE RING TO REDUCE THE INTERNAL DIAMETER OR HOLE SIZE. BY MAKING THE RING FIT SNUG, IT WILL HELP ELIMINATE FILLER LOSS INTO THE PUBIC AND OR SCROTAL AREAS.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I HAVE ERECTIONS AT NIGHT AND THERE IS DISCOMFORT?
  • ANSWER: IF YOU HAVE ERECTIONS AT NIGHT TIME DURING SLEEP AND THERE IS DISCOMFORT, IT IS RECOMMENDED TO TAKE 1-2 PAIN MEDICATION PILLS AT BEDTIME TO DECREASE THE DISCOMFORT FROM THE ERECTION AND THE ADDITIONAL SWELLING IT MAY CAUSE. ERECTIONS MIGHT ACTUALLY BE BENEFICIAL BY INCREASING BLOOD FLOW INTO THE PENIS AND ASSIST IN HEALING, AND ALSO MAY HELP SHAPE THE PENILE SHAFT.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I HAVE FEVER & CHILLS?
  • ANSWER: DURING THE FIRST 24-72 HOURS YOU MAY EXPERIENCE FEVER AND CHILLS (WHICH IS NORMAL). THIS IS DUE TO YOUR BODY REACTING WITH THE FILLER MEDICATION THAT WAS PLACED INTO THE PENIS. THIS IS NOT AN INFECTION, IS NOT DANGEROUS AND WILL SUBSIDE.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I HAVE SWELLING OF PENILE SKIN?
  • ANSWER: SWELLING IS NORMAL, AND MAY TAKE UP TO 14-21 DAYS TO FULLY RESOLVE. YOUR PENILE SKIN, MAINLY THE THIN SKIN LOCATED JUST UNDER THE GLANS (OR PENIS HEAD), MAY ACCUMULATE EDEMA OR WATER FLUID AND SWELL UP – THIS IS NORMAL. AGGRESSIVE MASSAGING MAY BE NEEDED TO SHRINK THIS DOWN FOR CONTOURING AND SHAPING REASONS. USE FINGER PRESSURE FOR 20-30 SECONDS FOR SMALL BULGING AREAS. IF THIS SWELLING OCCURS, YOUR GLANS MAY SUBMERGE UNDER THE SWOLLEN SKIN AND NOT BE VISIBLE. IF THE GLANS SUBMERGES, TRY TO ‘PULL OUT’ THE GLANS AND TAPE IT, USE PAPER TAPE, IN ATTEMPT TO KEEP IN OUT. SWELLING OF THE SKIN MAY FIND A ‘WEAK SPOT’ IN THE BANDAGE AND ‘BULGE OUT’. AS SOON AS A SKIN BULGE OCCURS, YOU WILL FIRST GENTLY AND WITH EVEN PRESSURE SQUEEZE IT WITH YOUR FINGER TIPS FOR 10-15 SECONDS (OR LONGER IF NEEDED), THEN PLACE STRETCH GAUZE AROUND IT WITH MILD TENSION TO PREVENT IT FROM BULGING OUT AGAIN. YOU WILL AS INSTRUCTED, ADJUST THE HALF-FOLD BROWN GAUZE AT THE TOP TO COVER THE BULGE, AND USE MILD TO MODERATE TENSION (NOT VERY HIGH TENSION).
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I HAVE URINE ‘LEAKING’?
  • ANSWER: SINCE THE BANDAGE IS PLACING PRESSURE ON THE PENIS, THE URINARY BLADDER WILL NOT ALWAYS EMPTY AFTER URINATION. THIS MAY CAUSE ‘LEAKING’ INTO YOUR UNDERWEAR DURING THE DAY. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO PLACE TISSUE PAPER ON THE GLANS IF YOU LEAK URINE.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IF I HAVE PAIN?
  • ANSWER:  SHAFT OF PENIS: SOME PAIN AND DISCOMFORT MAY OCCUR, ESPECIALLY AT THE BASE OF THE BANDAGE AREA. IF THERE IS INTOLERABLE PAIN AT THE BASE AREA, YOU CAN APPLY ICE, TAKE THE 10-15 MINUTE RUBBER BAND BREAKS EVERY 3-4 HOURS INSTEAD OF EVERY 4-6 HOURS ONLY IF INSTRUCTED BY DR.LORIA, AND INSERT COTTON (WITH LIDOCAINE CREAM AND TRIAMCINOLONE OINTMENT) UNDER TIGHT BAND DIRECTLY ON THE SKIN. IN THE GLANS OR HEAD OF THE PENIS: SOME PAIN AND DISCOMFORT WILL USUALLY OCCUR AT THE GLANS, OR HEAD, OF THE PENIS. THIS IS USUALLY DUE TO THE GAUZE, LATEX, OR RUBBER BAND (IF GLANS WAS TREATED) PUTTING PRESSURE ON THE SKIN OF THE PENIS, WITH THE ADDITION OF SOME SWELLING AS WELL. APPLY THE LIDOCAINE CREAM & TRIAMCINOLONE OINTMENT ON 3-4 TIMES DAILY IF NECESSARY. IN THE GROIN OR ANY AREA OTHER THAN THE PENIS: IF PAIN OCCURS IN ANY PLACE OTHER THAN THE PENIS – INCLUDING SHAFT OR GLANS-  PLEASE CALL THE DOCTOR.  
  • QUESTION: WHAT CLOTHING SHOULD I WEAR?
  • ANSWER: PLACING COTTON UNDERWEAR IS HELPFUL JUST BEFORE THE PLASTIC RING AND STRAPS ARE PLACED ON. THIS WILL HELP REDUCE THE IRRITATION CAUSED BY THE PLASTIC RING AND STRAPS ON THE SKIN. REGARDING GENERAL CLOTHING SUCH AS JEANS OR PANTS, WEAR LOOSE FITTING CLOTHES TO HELP PREVENT EXCESSIVE PRESSURE TO BE PLACED ON THE SHAFT.
  • QUESTION: WHAT POSTURE IS BEST IN GENERAL, DURING WORK, AND DURING SLEEP?
  • ANSWER:  DO NOT SQUAT DOWN. THIS MOTION WILL CAUSE THE PENIS TO PULL INWARDS AND DISRUPT THE BANDAGE. IF YOU NEED TO BEND DOWN TO PICK UP YOUR CHILD OR TIE YOUR SHOES, ETC., YOU CAN BEND DOWN ON ONE KNEE TEMPORARILY. BY BENDING ON ONE KNEE WILL HELP PREVENT THE PELVIS FROM ROTATING AND PULLING THE PENIS INWARDS. WHEN SITTING AT YOUR DESK OR IN YOUR CAR, LEAN BACK A BIT, OR SLOUCH, THIS WILL PREVENT THE PENIS FROM PULLING INWARDS. DO NOT SLEEP ON YOUR STOMACH, THIS WILL PLACE TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE BANDAGE. PLEASE SLEEP ON YOUR BACK OR SIDE.  IF SLEEPING ON YOUR SIDE, YOU MAY WANT TO PLACE 1-2 PILLOWS BETWEEN YOUR LEGS TO HELP PREVENT ROLLING OVER ONTO YOUR STOMACH.
  • QUESTION: WHAT IS CONSIDERED AND NOT CONSIDERED AN EMERGENCY?
  • ANSWER: GLANS AND SHAFT BRUISING AND BLISTERS ARE NORMAL. MILD PAIN, AND AT TIMES MODERATE PAIN, MAY OCCUR. THIS IS NORMAL. MILD TO MODERATE SWELLING USUALLY WILL OCCUR. THIS IS NORMAL. SOME BLEEDING WILL OCCUR AND YOU WILL NOTICE THIS IN THE BANDAGE. THIS IS NORMAL. IF THE GLANS HAS SOME BLUE COLOR THAT IS OK. HOWEVER, IF YOU HAVE EXCESSIVE PAIN OR SWELLING, OR MODERATE TO SEVERE BLEEDING/DRAINAGE THAT HAS SOAKED THE BANDAGE, THIS IS AN EMERGENCY. IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY CALL THE LORIA MEDICAL STAFF, OR IF THERE IS A DELAY IN CONTACTING US, REMOVE THE ENTIRE WRAP, TAKE A HOT SHOWER, THEN FOLLOW THE REWRAP PROTOCOL. CALL 911 OR GO TO THE NEAREST EMERGENCY ROOM ONLY IF YOU’RE IN EXCESSIVE PAIN AND/OR DRAINAGE HAS NOT BEEN RESOLVED BY REWRAPPING.
