Who had their pump adhered to their scrotum after surgery?

Postby RichardTheFrog » Sun Mar 05, 2017 12:25 pm

That is my current problem.

Who else did this happen to?

How long did it take to detach? Was it the result of an infection?

Activated 3/11/17. Perfectly happy, except... Pump is adhered to scrotum. Rough sex and cowgirl is painful, but hopefully this problem will resolve itself.

Richard the Frog,
Your pump seems adherent because you're not even 2 weeks out, maybe a tad obsessive. It's no big deal writing a lot of different threads, etc., but most of your stuff is honestly daily facets of your ordinary recovery. if I can add anything, relax a bit and don't obsess. At 3-4 weeks if you're in excruciating pain with a stuck pump, probably call your doc. Dr. Kramer is like a best in the world level guy- he'll be all over it if there's a problem.

Yea he didn't seem worried.

Of course I'm obsessed... This is my one and only dick we're talking about!!!

Hi Richard.
My pump is still adhered to my scrotum and I am six weeks and five days post op.I have no trouble cycling twice a day.The pump is really loose,it's just stuck in one little area.It's been that way since the surgery no better no worse.Karmer said not to worry it will let loose in time.

Rick P,

P S....I was worried about infection also,still am a little.

Are you cleared to take baths yet? If so a hot bath is good to relax your scrotum and free things up down there. My pump was slightly stuck to my scrotum and I was able to gently massage and peel the skin away.

After a week or so, you should be allowed to take sitz baths and yes, you can massage gently the scrotum and likely loosen that pump. I took them and they helped loosen and heal. At one point, I was so jumbled up in there that I couldn't define the pump and deflate valve, but I had extensive revision surgery and it just took time. I too was impatient and obsessive about my "one and only."

My pump is stuck too, but not like yours. Mine is stitched in place so that it doesn't migrate.

According to the instructions on Kramer's post surgery packet, I must wait 3 weeks to take a bath. He said that playing with it wouldn't help and just to give it time. I am kind of worried about this. The worst pain is coming from the base of my dick on the left side. This is where the pump is stuck.

The pump is still stuck just as much as it was.

I'm hoping this doesn't delay activation, which is scheduled for 3/22 with my local urologist.

I had this.
About 2 months it took with the odd massage of the pump. Could feel it rip occasionally.
Now at 4 months its detached and completely comfortable.
Before that it was uncomfortable when the scrotum contracted.
