Re: Dear Coloplast: About Your Non-Existent Titan Support

I had simalar issues with my deflate button at the begining I used two hands also but as time went on I now use only one . One touch is not really one touch its squeeze and hold for a few seconds then release. That will get most of the pressure out of the tubes. At 8 weeks the tubes are still quite ...

Re: Possible Bad Pump

Rest assured Dr Eid Will take care of it I’m sure that it’s probably just the way you’re trying to use it something might be stuck or maybe you’re not doing it right. The day 3 activations is usually done in his office so if you had surgery on Thursday it would’ve been moved to Monday. I can appreci...

Re: JimStein-My Journal

Your situation is almost identical to what I went through.I also took my catheter out before having seen Dr Eid. It went pretty smoothly and boy it felt a lot better to get rid of that thing. Tomorrow you’re going to get activated, Myra is likely to pump you up and show you how to deflate it then yo...

Re: Day 8 - Should I be inflating?

Six weeks is a long time the scar tissue will have formed in the Pseudo capsule and any hope of stretching it will diminish greatly. If you were left inflated then I would not be worried about the scar tissue. On the other hand six weeks of a raging hard on would be painful. I started cycling on day...

Re: SORENESS AFTER 7 WEEKS

The first three months are a bit difficult but after that you’re pretty much healed although things do get better slowly as time goes on but the majority of the healing is taking place by then. I’m currently 14 months since the surgery the only time I have any mild discomfort is squeezing the pump n...

Horseback riding

Just a heads up to my bionic brothers when riding a horse one must be careful to position the pump in such a way to avoid auto inflation. The up and down movements can cause some discomfort as well as embarrassment when dismounting. The ride was fun
