30. Teamwork is Cool. Meet Judy and Punch

30. Teamwork is Cool. Meet Judy and Punch

April 21, 2021

 

Welcome to Episode 30 of the Penis Project podcast! And our very first episode with a couple talking about their experience - TWOGETHER! 

 

Meet Judy and Punch who both were very willing to share their story. 

 

Punch was diagnosed in 2017 after a routine blood test suggested by his new GP - totally by accident. And through all of this, Judy was with him. 

 

Listen on how they handled their journey together - from diagnosis, to moving to Perth for Punch’s surgery, to post-op procedures and to doing injections as a team. Yep, Punch is an injection user! If you’re curious about his experience and what happens when you prick the wrong side of the penis, this episode is for you.

 

Plus, Dr. Jo will also explain what’s the preferred or ideal position (no puns here) when doing pelvic floor exercises and why mirrors can be of help to do them perfectly. ;) 

 

Key takeaways: 

 

  • Judy: 

 

If you have someone to go with you, that's a huge thing - someone to back you up. :) 

 

  • Punch: 

 

All males, once you get to 50 (45 if you have family history) - go and get tested.

28. Can you make penises bigger? Yes, says Dr. Jayson!

April 7, 2021

 

Did you know that one of the most searched queries on Google is ‘penile length’? So for today’s episode, we will be exploring the science of increasing the calibre of the penis.

Meet Dr. Jayson Oates, the medical director of the Calibre Clinic. Dr. Jayson is a highly skilled surgeon, specialising for nearly 20 years in aesthetic and lifestyle surgery.

He will be discussing the CALIBRE injectable penis enlargement procedure which is about enhancing the penis. Like what cosmetic surgery is for women ie for breasts and face, Calibre is a procedure for men who wish to add some calibre to their willies.

Questions like the below will be answered:

  • Is this procedure painful?
  • How long does it take?
  • Any downtime after the procedure?
  • Side effects that may occur?
  • How long will the effects last?

And more will be answered.

Hit play to listen now! You can also read along the transcript below to enjoy more of the information shared. ;)

27. Paul, the Conqueror and Passionate Swimmer

27. Paul, the Conqueror and Passionate Swimmer

March 31, 2021

Meet Paul.

Paul is a 75 year old swimmer and a survivor of Prostate Cancer.

Instead of opting for the usual prostatectomy, he opted for Robotic Surgery.

You see, Paul is an avid swimmer and having the usual operation to remove his prostate was not ideal – so after discussion and great decisiveness, he opted for the Robotic surgery.

When we asked Paul about the pain after the surgery, he said ‘Very, very little’.

The pain was very little that he was able to go back to swimming activities even just after 4 weeks. He just had to go back to the swimming pool as soon as possible (what an amazing drive!).

However, the major problem that Paul encountered was that he was leaking heavily – leaking at almost a litre and a half a day. He was using almost 7 pads per day. Even disposing the pads was quite an issue. He had to actually duck into women’s toilets to dispose of them!

 

Here’s an episode where we discussed the initiative of providing Bins for Blokes (Episode 10) >> 

And when he swims, he has to use tissue papers to hide the leakage. (Sorry, we forgot to ask what brand of tissue he used!) 

Then he met with Dr. Jo who gave him a lot of confidence to handle the incontinence. 

To also help with the leakage, he opted for the Advanced Sling Operation. You can actually find out more about this in Episode 19 where Mr. Positive Penis talked about it.

Please click here to listen to Episode 19 >> 

The operation helped him address the leakage but had to endure almost 6 weeks of pain from the operation site. 

Here are some amazing takeaways from this episode: 

  1. Apples are OUT, Oranges are IN for constipation. 
  2. Buy good quality tissues! 
  3. Drinking more than 4 glasses of champagne causes leakage. 
  4. Keep taking PSA tests even after surgery and encourage the ones around you to take the test, too. 
  5. Do not procrastinate, do your exercises.
  6. Clubs and joining support groups are very important.

 

And lastly, 

Know that you can do whatever you like, but it’s gonna come from within and it should be something that you really like. Passion is the key to a long happy life.

25. Pop-up Episode 2 - Busting the Myths on Penis Injections

25. Pop-up Episode 2 - Busting the Myths on Penis Injections

March 17, 2021

 

For Episode 25, we will talk about Intracavernosal Injections (or ICI). Feel free to listen to Episode 1 and Episode 3 and learn from Phil and Parker’s experience. ;) 

 

But I’d like to bust some myths about doing penis injections. 

  • Priapism is not a normal effect.
  • It doesn’t actually hurt. If you don’t believe me (and I dont blame you) listen to the experts (other men) give their view 

 

So… if you are sick of waiting and want to get your Mojo back or are just an Eager Beaver, one of your options is to do ICI or penis injections. 

 

Here’s a video on how to do it (in case you find it hard to picture the procedure from me talking in this episode). 

 

Here's a video of Melissa doing ICI injections >>

 

Take-away message from this episode is  ‘keep an open mind’ and ‘‘prior preparation prevents a piss poor performance’ .

24. Mindset and Fighting the Black Dog

24. Mindset and Fighting the Black Dog

March 10, 2021

 

And how emotions can spiral after treatment.

 

Welcome to Episode 24!  In this episode, we talk to Ron.  

 

Previous episodes have focused on treatment and recovery of continence and sexual function following prostate cancer.  This week will look at prostate cancer from a different angle, the emotional one.  Ron generously discussed his emotions during this difficult time.

 

So here we go... 

 

Ron’s approach when he learned of his Prostate Cancer diagnosis was pragmatic. He said he had three boxes to tick.

 

First, get treated. Second, handle incontinence. Third, sexual function. 

The first two were easy, the third not so easy and then there was the fourth which snuck up on him - the black dog. 

 

What helped him? Writing down his thoughts. And happy pills. 

 

Ron’s advice to men experiencing the same? 

Reach out to someone as soon as you can and don’t be afraid to use happy pills. 

 

3 Reiterations from this Episode: 

  1. The importance of continuous pelvic floor exercises.
  2. Why it is important to reach out to someone sooner rather than later.
  3. Partners coming along to consultations is really helpful - for both - the patient and the partner.

23: Mrs Parker

23: Mrs Parker

March 3, 2021

 

Episode 23: Mrs. Parker

Prostae Cancer from a wife’s perspective

 

We have received a lot of requests to interview and hear the stories of the partners of patients diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. 

 

So for today’s episode, please meet Mrs. Parker. 

 

Mrs. Parker is Mr. Parker’s spouse, who we interviewed for our 3rd episode. If you have not listened to Mr. Parker’s interview, click here to listen to Episode 3: Parker

 

Mr. and Mrs. Parker were just recently married when they both learned of the Prostate Cancer diagnosis. 

 

At first, they were both anxious but with good prognosis and faith in the healthcare system, they moved to proceed with the advised treatment. 

 

Mrs. Parker always joined Mr. Parker at his appointments, from pre-op throughout his journey.

 

She mentions that it is important to go along with your partner so you can pick up information that your partner might miss. 

 

Her advice, “It is a good thing to go along”. 

There are two takeaways we’d love to share with you coming from this Episode 

  1. For significant others, it is good to go along with your partner during appointments. 
  2. Don't be disappointed in the first 12 months if you can only get a good erection with injections or oral medications. 

 

We hope you enjoy Mrs. Parker's story and learn more about injections, and when is the best time to use oral meds vs injections, and a ton more of helpful information.  

 

Stay tuned for the final lesson at the end, especially for the campers out there! ;)
