Wandering Implant and A Lop-sided Scrotum

Below is my response to that which someone wrote in one of the FTM support groups about one side if his scrotum:
“When I massage the thing, it feels more fibrous than fluid-filled. I can see no signs of this thing deflating any time soon.”

The left side of my scrotum still feels this way (on the 27th I’ll be 3 months post-op). It is not painful or sensitive and the implant seems to be in a good place. It does not cause any issues with my penis. If anything, the “swelling” makes the scrotum look more natural. It hasn’t really changed much in a number of weeks now.

The right side, on the other hand, is “deflated” much of the time. The right implant is much deeper than the left. Sometimes the implant is where it belongs (lower) and the scrotum looks more full but not as full as the left side. Other times the right implant is high (up beside my penis) and the right scrotum looks deflated or shriveled. This can also cause discomfort, especially when my legs are closer together such as lying down or in certain seated positions, due to the implant pressing against the side of my penis.

I plan to have a mons resection this year and hope this “wandering implant” situation can be resolved at the same time.
