I am 6.5" erect length. My mission has been to get to 7.5 or better. I Have 5 different kinds of pills that I am sure all of us have heard of at some point. I have done the pump & followed its program to make gains. I have a custom made weight that I wear almost everyday all day. When I am not using that & have time I am using the extender! I do kegels, jelqs I have joined 2 of these on line manual stretching techniques! Nothing really! when I first got the extender i was wearing 12 hours a day for 11 months & I did make a 1/2" gain but half of that went away when I stopped using it & started to gain weight. WTF do I have to guys? Honestly I have invested so much into this & I have nothing spectacular to show for it. All am asking for is for a 1" gain. I am seriously considering surgery! What should I do, I am open to suggestion but only if you have been in my shoes & over came the circumstance. I am looking for direct answers, no beating around the bush.
