Is it painful to have the implant in place?

No, because the materials with which the prostheses are made are soft and elastic. They do not generate (under normal conditions) compression of nerve structures and therefore should not be a cause of chronic pain in the penis. Many men with penile prostheses even say they "forget" they are wearing them.

However, some men may experience some discomfort or pain during the first few weeks after penile implantation surgery. This can often be controlled with pain relievers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

How long can I have sex again?
It is likely that many men who have recently undergone this type of surgery want to begin to see immediate results such as having sex again with the “new device” but the reality is that it is necessary to wait about 4 or 6 weeks (time can vary) before trying the system for the first time before sexual intercourse
Are these erections very different from natural ones? Is there a difference between the two?
The reality is that they are very similar. However, artificially induced erections with a prosthetic penis can make the member a little colder. This is partly because the blood supply is not the same as in a natural erection.
Are there risks associated with penile prostheses?

Among the complications most reported by penile prosthesis implantation surgeries are infections and pain but they are rare, fortunately. According to statistics, 6% of patients develop some type of mild or moderate infection and 2% of pain due to breakage of the prosthesis.

In most cases, patients express satisfaction with the prosthesis and consider that their sexual performance has significantly improved. Complications take a backseat and are considered little noticeable, although if they do arise, they should receive emergency medical attention.
