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.

Re: My tips for pre-op, during and post-op for penile implant

My urologist that removed my prostate due to cancer (non nerve sparing) to use the pump. I used it for sex a couple of times before getting an implant.

Re: Both dissapointed & have a pump question

AMS 700 here. I was similar to you a couple of months after activation. Not much different flaccid than when pumped at first. Also, more narrow toward the end. Almost 6 months now, and girth is thicker near the end, length looks almost pre prostectamy. It is still early for you, but contact your doc...

Re: First Followup After Surgery

It was about 4 weeks follow up for me. No activation until then. I was pretty uncomfortable for a few weeks.

Re: LGX, CX, Titan

I used the pump shortly after RP. No problems before, but the nerves were not spared during RP, no signs of life a year later. I was scared about the implant as well, but for me, it was either go for it or have a wet noodle. Even though I could perform somewhat with the pump, I wanted some semblance...
