Headache meds, haha I know, that's 'standard medical practice' for urination pain after catheter removal. As for gains, I won't know until the scaffolds have started to dissolve. It took almost 7 months for complete degradation last time. Miro says these scaffolds are softer so it should be sooner. Here's hoping...
Guys this is turning into a nightmare. One of Miro's assistants Vladimir came and saw me today to change my dressings. My dick looked marginally better than the other day but was bruised very dark at the stitch line. Vladimir said not to worry, that it will heal in 1-2 weeks. The bottom scaffold was now deforming as the penis was retracting and pushing down on it. Again Vladimir said not to worry, it will figure itself out.
Tonight I applied the local anaesthetic into my urethra and went to the toilet, or shower more specifically. It was unexpectedly painful again, and by the end, spots of blood appeared in the urine, more than at any stage so far. I accidentally got urine/blood into the top of the dressing, near the stitch line. It began stinging, so I rushed to remove it. When I cleaned the urine away I felt that a section of the bruised skin at the top was hard, like it was dead. It was black.
I called Marta who said that my issues were 'newer' (worse) than her examination. She said she would call Vladimir. As I redressed my penis a small piece of bruised skin on the shaft came off.
Vladimir called and told me not to worry, and that he HOPES that I will be okay. When I pressed him on this, he admitted that the scaffolds may have to come out. He hoped the bruising would resolve by itself after 2 weeks, but there was nothing we could do now. I reminded him that I am due to leave in 6 days, and he said that we would know by then whether they should come out or not. Totally freaking out. Don't know how I will sleep, or urinate...

Wow bonehead, I'm sorry to hear about these turn of events. The blood in the urine is alarming, and the condition of your skin deserves greater attention from the medical staff. I'm no doctor and there could be other explanations, but I'm not sure why the skin would revert to healing after this current fiasco.
Again, I'm no medical professional but from my experiences on these forums (in the past), you really need a sound medical decision in 24 hours (or less). I hope they can surgically improve the condition without removing the scaffolds but at this point its up in the air. The characteristics of your skin and the blood in the urine may imply some form of complication, be-it rejection or infection (or both). It also could be neither, and the scaffolding was placed poorly essentially damaging skin tissue. I'm no doctor so pardon my speculation. If you are on antibiotics, you may still overcome this, so be sure to rest and reinforce good health!
I am not trying to increase your anxiety, I'm going to try to help you keep a level head in the coming hours/days. It is imperative you explain to the nurse/doctor that this is not typical bruising or bleeding. In the meantime, relax and take comfort in knowing that the doctors working on you are experienced in this line of work. They will ultimately determine what is up, just take it easy in the meantime.

Bonehead, if you need real-time company, I (and hopefully others here) don't mind logging into the chat function this forum has. No reason not to find something else to talk about since sleep may be difficult.
I know that sometimes these surgical ventures are too intimate to share with people in our lives. If your discussion on this matter happens to only be on the web, then let me know I'll be happy to setup real-time chat.

I should note that until the doctor confirms it one way or the other, we aren't sure exactly what is going on, and since you mentioned your penis did look a little bit better than the other day with your Vladimir examination, hope still resides.
Thanks guys. News is a bit more positive today. Vladimir now tells me that only a small section of the top scaffold would need to be removed, if at all. Marta who examined me today was of the opinion that I won't need further surgery. The nurse at St Medica, Bilena, is very nice, a trustworthy type and she didn't bat an eyelid when helping Marta with the examination. When we spoke privately she said I will be fine, and I believe her. But I swear if you saw my smashed up sausage you might faint. Perhaps I should post a pic haha. The urination is still screwed, I didn't apply any local for 24 hours and it was too difficult to get anything going, so I'm now applying just a little local to outside the glans. It's still taking me 20 minutes to empty my bladder. Anyway, thanks for the support it really helps at times like these.

Positive news, to any degree is awesome news! It's good to hear that the entire scaffold is not at fault, and that only maybe a section of it is causing all the issues...I suspect over the coming days it will be even more determinable.
Nurses from my experience seem to be independent of the doctor's sentiments, so its good to know you are getting extra reassurances from them.
We will continue to be here. Feel free to update this thread as often as you like.
Skeptical 1, I think the main issue is due to overall scaffold pressure. Removing a small section from the top will relieve that pressure somewhat. There is an extra 2.4 cm of scaffold this time. Miro said my penis would handle it no problem, and that he would stitch it to the shaft at various points. But it must have come loose because there is a gap between the groin and the bottom scaffold of about 2-3cm. But all the doctors and nurses seem fine about it, so we'll wait and see. Am staying in Belgrade until I can be sure I need no further surgery. Luckily I can afford to do that. Anyone contemplating travelling long distances should keep that in mind. We really need enough in the bank to cover the cost of complications.

Happy to hear they continue to express optimism. How's the actual appearance of your penis right now and are you still experiencing blood in the urine?
Interesting you mention the costs...I've always planned on saving considerably more than the procedure's cost in the event of complication(s). This is also why traveling abroad for a procedure is much less of a reality for me.
I too think the advice (to have enough money in case complications were to arise) is excellent. When I had my implant removed, even though the actual implant removal was free (of course), the plane ticket, hotel expenses, pharmaceuticals, and money lost from work (opportunity cost) ran well into the thousands for me. Thank goodness I was at a stage in my life when I could bear the expenses and time off work. I would have been absolutely screwed if it had been happened when in was in my twenties.
Had another exam today, not much change. Bits of skin peeling off, the rim of skin under the glans is all black and dead. God. Docs keep saying i'm fine. It's the bathroom I'm really dreading, I swear these next 2 weeks will be the longest of my life.

gregterry: Please downvote Dr. Elist on Google Reviews and Facebook. Let people know what he has done to poor victims.

justpitchingin: Anyways.. I have had the Elist procedure.. only 14 weeks post-op.. So far so good.. But be warned the girth is actually something that may not be appreciated as it may be a bit much for folks that are not into girth..
Mar 18, 2017 1:33:43 GMT -5
happy: guys that had Elist surgery recently and are recovering and all is well...I'd like to communicate with guys that had the surgery within the last year so I can gauge my progress

champ101: Dr Colin Moore is a butcher, NEVER allow him anywhere near your penis. His work is VERY bad and his fees are far in excess of others who complete these surgeries much better. He could not care less about his patients, his work is VERY bad.
