I am only interested in the "Malleable " version in detail, because tht has been recommended for me.


I am particularly concerned because I am on Warfrin and Diabetic whilst suffering from slight constipation and need to strain to clear my bowels daily. Will I be able recover reasonably after the operation for insertion?


I would like to see a clear diagram of the way the inserts are placed.


 

Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 3 years ago.
The malleable device is placed in the same manner as the inflatable device. The only difference, is that there is no reservoir or pump to place.

Being a diabetic or being on warfarin does not make you a poor candidate for this procedure. You just need to make sure your hemoglobin A-1 C level is near the normal range and your sugars well-controlled. Your doctor will also need to make sure that you can come off your Coumadin temporarily for this procedure. Hope this helps.
