    Penile Implant, Complications? Post-op Penile Distortion?

    I had the AMS 700 3-piece penile prosthesis installed a couple of weeks ago, and I have a few concerns which may be nothing, but I won't see my doctor for awhile. Here's my main concern:

    The components inside the penis should be straight, smooth tubes, right? I have three hard nodules along the shaft, one on the side near the glans, one on top about an inch from the glans, and one near the base which is causing a fairly sharp bend in my penis (not a gradual curve).

    The doctor told me on the phone that this is because he left the tubes inflated about 50% (I'm guessing to expand the skin). But even so, why do I have these hard nodules? And if that's true I imagine the hard spots would only be larger when fully inflated. To a partner, this would look and feel like a deformed penis. This is disconcerting. I'll talk to my doctor about it more in a few weeks, but in the meantime I'd like to know if this is normal, and how concerned I should be about it.

    My other concern is that the pump is much larger than I expected it to be. The doctor said before the surgery that my wife "might notice it" if she manipulates my scrotum, but it is at least as large as one of my testicles, occupying a large part of my scrotal sac. This causes pain and pressure. I know the pain and swelling will decrease over time, but can any of you with experience identify with this? Can you tell me how long it will be before it starts feeling natural?

    The doctor who did my surgery is chief of urology at a major university and has done thousands of these so I don't doubt his ability or compassion, and don't think he made a mistake. I just want to make up that I don't end up with a deformity and an over-stuffed scrotum.

    Thanks for your advice!
