Letter of Appreciation
Dear Dr. Whitehead,
I just wanted to write back to say thank you for all you have done for me.
After being through the experience of a failed penile extension operation it was great to be dealing with yourself, someone I can trust.
This operation means so much to me and I just hope it all turns out well - in fact it is the key to my whole life.
My small penis made my life come to an overnight stop a few years ago when I realized my penis was not going to grow or develop any more. Since then I have been battling to solve the problem via various medical professionals who have all been unable to help or who bungled their treatment for me.
At least now I have found you I know the treatment and surgery I receive will be the best in the world.
The added trouble with this problem is that I have been too ashamed to tell anybody, which makes it hard to deal with. It is hard mentally and physiologically to bottle it up and hard practically to search for treatments and cures without anybody finding out.
It is also hard to make up excuses and lies about why I have stopped certain activities and sports.
I always wanted to join the Army as my career choice and this became impossible when I realized my penis was not going to develop or grow any more. After telling everyone I ever met since I was a small child that I wanted this career, it was difficult to have to make up excuses as to why I had changed my mind suddenly.
I was also always playing some sort of team sport every evening and weekend and had to lie about why I quit all of those teams and clubs.
The thing I missed most was the changing room camaraderie and male bonding associated with these sports which was always something I enjoyed and was a big reason behind me wanting to be in the Army as a career. I now felt ashamed to even go to the urinals in a public place and have made sure I never use these whilst other men are there too.
I had always enjoyed having really close strong friendships with men. Not at all in the sexual way, but just getting so close to someone that you become solid, lifetime best friends who go through life together, know each others lives inside out, and can talk about anything together. I have now virtually cut myself off from all my friends and they of course have no idea why.
It shattered my-self esteem and I had zero confidence in myself. I felt a complete and utter failure in everything. This affected every activity in my whole life, especially in my part time job where I felt undermined, even though it was only in a shop selling CDs.
I felt inadequate, inferior, and ashamed. I lost all sense of masculinity and self respect.
All this led me to suffer from clinical depression. As I would not tell anyone what the problem was (and still haven't), I was prescribed Seroxat (Paxil or Paroxetine) to lift me out of the depression.
This obviously hasn't worked. The only way I will be cured is if I cure the underlying problem - my small penis.
After telling Dr. Salkin all of this he not only cleared me for surgery with you but he recommended that I have it done.
He said surgery to enlarge my penis is exactly what I need to help me both psychologically and emotionally. Once I know the final results and outcome of the enlargement, if all has gone well, he said my depression will disappear overnight.
I am sorry to have just wasted your time with my life story.
I only meant to write to say thank you but it is a great release to finally have someone who knows about the problem that I can mention these things to.
I hope to be able to report back to you with some great results and look forward to sending you pictures.
Hopefully then I can get my life back on track and start to live a proper, decent life.
Once again, thank you very much for your help and assistance.
You have literally saved my life.
Three Months Later the Patient Reported Back
The Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) which had been used to widen my penis has been an absolute miracle. I expected it to feel slightly weird and strange as though it wasn't really a part of me. I thought I would not be able to feel it when I touched it. I could not have been more wrong. It doesn't feel any different to how my penis used to. I have been very impressed by this.
Also, there is no way in the world anybody can tell that it is there. It doesn't look lumpy and it doesn't have any contours - the appearance is absolutely normal.
After my experience with the penile surgery that went wrong, I had totally lost all faith in doctors and felt I could not trust any of them.
You have restored that faith completely.
