Re: Can someone with a Titan OTR contact me (emergency deflation)

Sirsarcastic and I had the same surgeon (same implant day too)... he got the Titan and I got the AMS LGX. Dr. Brock told me that IF my swelling was gone (or almost) by the third week, I could start looking for the release button and IF comfortable, I could try to deflate the 40% he pumped me to. TH...

Re: Can someone with a Titan OTR contact me (emergency deflation)

I've been told to leave all alone until I go back on 5 jan and then I will be shown if it's all calmed down how to "use". I had been told several times before surgery that any activation would be some 4-6 weeks post op at least. Excellent advice. Glad to hear you are listening to your Doc...

Re: Can someone with a Titan OTR contact me (emergency deflation)

If you have a Titan touch can you please pm me. I got it deflated, inflated and can't deflate again. I'm in some pain Thanks First...is this still a problem? My second question is why are you cycling so early. All of us are still swollen, which will make it difficult to find the Deflate button. If ...

Re: Just need to vent

Riverdog, I hate to hear that you are having a difficult time with your implant. I will admit, I am shocked to hear that Doctors are allowing their patients to begin pumping so early. I had to wait a minimum of 4 weeks. Our bodies are still healing and swelling is still present. Our best instinct is...

Re: more candor from the surgeon

This is a link to an abstract of a paper that directly address this topic. It appears to be a newer paper and as such it shouldn't be assumed that the information discussed in it would be common knowledge to surgeons prior to the papers publication: Preoperative counseling and expectation managemen...

Re: My Titan Coloplast Implant Journey

4-Weeks Post-Implant First off, I want to thank everyone on here who has been so helpful in answering my questions. Even at 4 weeks this is still a wild ride. It's amazing the difference 4-weeks make. I didn't have time to cycle last night so I got up early this morning and took a hot bath and pump...

Re: My Titan Coloplast Implant Journey

I have the Titan One Touch Pump. When deflating I have to squeeze the valve and the opposite side of the pump together. I have to continue to squeeze the deflate part of the pump and also squeeze the shaft starting at the head then move down to the base. That should do it. Most pumps all work the sa...
