Re: When does ache stop ?

About three weeks after surgery, not much discomfort, really didn't have much until first activation about a month after surgery. Hurt like hell when activated at first, then gradually got better. About a month after activation, only had discomfort when pumped to the max, but only after leaving it i...

Re: Just feels different - that change ?

Mine soften up as time went by. I don't know if you have activated yet, that was another adjustment for me. The first activation was quite discomfortable, mainly because I couldn't figure out how to deflate. The first few uses with a women were challenging because when pumped to the max, it was disc...

Re: How much did your implant cost you & how many pumps?

About 30 pumps, under a minute. Still arguing with insurance company, the office said it was approved, insurance denied after the fact. Worse case, I am getting billed for about $4000.

Re: Artificial Erection given prior to surgery?

In my conversations with the surgeon when discussing length, I am fairly sure that he said that they do AE in the room prior to surgery, then "they would put the longest tubes they can". I am 9 months post surgery, almost 8 months past the first activation. Getting closer to the original l...

Re: Using Bathroom Post-op?

Mine was partially inflated after surgery but not taped to my belly or anything. I just sat down and pushed it to aim at the bowl, which is more or less what I do now. Even fully inflated, you will likely be bendable. Shouldn't be any worries, except maybe forgetting the first time or two and peeing...

Re: Recovery time before 1/2 marathon?

I don't run often anymore, but I think as has been said, it depends on your comfort. After implant surgery, I would have been ok with light running in a couple of weeks. I bought a jock strap. My activation was about 6 weeks later, this is where I had the most discomfort. Until I could use the pump ...

Re: Two-Piece Implant

According to the Mayo Clinic, erections are more firm with the 3 piece, which is why I think the 2 piece is not used that much, if at all anymore.

Re: 6-Week Post-op Update and a Couple of Questions

Keep pumping until you can't pump anymore, wait a few minutes and try again. I am about 6 months post activation, length and girth
still improving. Doc said it would continue to improve for at least a year, which would be great, but pretty satisfied now.
