See below: The majority of penile implants will typically last 10-15 years. The more the pump is used, the sooner this is likely to happen. However, through a similar surgery that implanted the original penile implant, the penile implant can be removed and replaced.

Under the skin IV's: Unfortunately, cancer treatment requires drawing many blood tests, giving fluids and chemotherapy and at times giving antibiotics by vein. If your regular veins were used, they would quickly wear out or worse, toxic drugs could leak out into the skin around them. Placing a thin tube (catheter) under the skin that leads to a large vein simplifies this process. There are different types of catheters.
