9 Questions to Ask Before Having Penis Surgery
More men these days are interested in getting penis surgery done. However, only a few ever go under the scalpel because most have doubts about the benefits of penis surgery. If you are one of these men, you may want to ask yourself and an expert these 10 questions first.
9. Do I Really Need This?
Most, if not all, surgeons will ask you to reconsider your decision. After all, they know that cutting into the penis is dangerous and that it carries plenty of risks, such as bleeding, infection, scarring and other post-surgery complications.
Thus, it is important to think about your decision thoroughly first.
8. How Much Will It Cost?
Budget is a big factor when it comes to penis surgery. Not only do you have to think about the costs of the operation, but you also need to consider how much follow-up appointments, medication, and in worse cases, follow-up surgery will cost you.
7. Can My Body Take It?
Most surgical procedures carry the risk of bacterial infection, which is a major problem for those who have weak immune systems.
You may want to postpone your surgery if you are sick, not feeling well or still recovering from any type of ailment.
6. Will I Be In Safe Hands?
Do not be afraid to ask your doctor if he does penis surgery regularly.
Find someone who does at least two or three of your preferred surgical procedure a month. The number of patients a doctor handles is a reflection of how good and trustworthy he is.
5. What Are My Other Options?
Most of the time, you can always choose to do something else to address your problem about your genitals aside from penis surgery.
Make sure to ask your doctor about your other treatment options. This way, you know of the other less risky treatment options available to you and can decide properly as to which one is the best for you.
4. Will This Satisfy Me?
Most of those who undergo penis surgery often feel that they did not get what they paid for. They often expected something more than they got.
Does this mean that the surgeons short-changed them? No, this only means that men need to have realistic expectations about penis surgery.
After all, when you are 60 or 70 or older, your erection will NEVER be as strong as it was when you were 18.
3. Have I Prepared Myself Enough?
Pre-operative preparation does not only mean that you should keep yourself fit, well and healthy. You should also make sure that you are mentally prepared to undergo penis surgery.
Make sure that you have not only thought of it through, but that you are certain that you need this and that you will not have any regrets after.
2. Will This Cure My Problem?
Surgery is not a permanent solution for genital warts as sufferers will still be carriers of the virus known as the human papillomavirus or HPV.
If your choice is between surgery and getting treatment for HPV, do yourself a favor and choose the latter.
Penis surgery can easily take care of the warts later on, but HPV is something that you have to deal with ASAP.
1. What Should I Do After the Procedure?
If you have convinced yourself enough to go for penis surgery, then one thing that you may want to ask your doctor is what you should do after the procedure.
You can never be too careful about these things and your doctor will be more than happy to guide you about what to do for the first few days or weeks after the procedure.
To Cut or Not To Cut?
Penis surgery is both life changing and life threatening.
Make sure to ask yourself and an expert these questions first before doing something that may forever change your life.
