Dr Eid discharged me for travel with the catheter in and all went well all the way home. There was so little swelling that I could pretty easily feel the parts of the pump the next day in the shower. So I experimented with it and could release/pump with no problem, then increased more pumps everyday.



Do you know how to remove the catheter?? It's not as simple as yank on it. :)

It’s a bit funny taking it out but not painful surprising how long it is but oh what a relief to pee on your own. When your in the tub at first use a wash cloth to hold everything in place when you first pump it greatly reduces the chance of a slip causing the pump to go flying into one on the neighbors. Things are still quite sensitive at day three but the master plumber Dr. Eid makes a very small incision and there isn’t much swelling. Go slow the first few days the scrotum needs to toughen up that takes a while.

Day 3:
So Day 3 has passed and it was interesting. Larry, I was able to remove catheter with no problem. I had very clear written instructions and diagrams. Just suck the air out of the balloon and pull it out. Easiest task so far!
After pulling the catheter, I unbandaged and did the big reveal. I was surprised to see that I had a pretty firm 3 o'clock erection. The shaft wider than the glans. Could feel some lumps and bumps from the cylinders. Scrotum tight with the pump behind the testicles. No significant bruising or visible swelling. Nice clean incision line with easily visible stitches for me to remove in two weeks. I could probably have sex with the thing as is but it is still bendable but very hard to point down from base. I'm peeing normally and can get the pee in the toilet however.
I took a shower to just clean up after 3 days. Shortly after, I took a hot bath for 40 minutes. I started to explore. Can easily feel the pump and can locate the deflate button which is kind of behind and between the testicles, but it's kind of up there a bit getting into uncomfortable territory when I started squeezing on it. I thought maybe there is some fluid in the cylinders so before pumping up maybe I can hit deflate and squeeze a little out. The hard part is getting my finger on the opposite side of the deflate button, it's super tender and afterwards made my scrotum feel like it was on fire. So, for today I figured I'd leave it at that. Made some progress getting the lay of the land down there.
After that experience I had some questions/concerns so I texted the good Dr Eid. Within 5 minutes I had a very nice and thorough reply. The "erection" is edema and swelling and he left the cylinders empty, I didn't have an auto inflation. It is normal for the pump to be hard as a rock right now. Just continue hot baths and master the deflate button before inflating.
I'm sure some of these things are familiar to the many brothers that have gone before me. My biggest concern is that my scrotum will loosen up and I have enough room in there as I have a small scrotum to begin with. I feels like the pump is almost in the perineal area. I don't have much hang down there. Hopefully I didn't bruise myself too badly to make it hard for me tomorrow.
Overall, managing pretty well considering. It's early in the game with a long way to go.

Day 4:
CYCLING SUCCESS!!! In the hot bath tonight, I located the deflate button, pushed it with my right index finger and thumb opposing, squeezed my shaft and it deflated from where I was left post operatively. Confident that I could deflate, I used a washcloth for grip, grabbed the bulb with my right thumb and index finger and pumped. Got some good pumps, at least halfway, for 15-20 pumps until I had a nice straight erection with no folds or bumps. Held it there for a few minutes, didn't really hurt, then deflated fully and pumped up again. Did this a total of three times. I definitely could have pumped some more but didn't want to push it the first time. I just wanted to make sure I could do it without getting myself into any trouble.
With that accomplished, tomorrow I will start to push the envelop a little more and hold it for longer. Without getting too confident, I can say that was almost easy. Way easier than I expected and my scrotum is a little sore but not on fire like yesterday. I am excited and optimistic. I can do this and its only going to get better!!
I have followed doctors orders to the letter both pre and post op. Also, I can't believe how little swelling I have and virtually no bruising. It's incredible. From what I have seen to this point Dr Eid is a true master. Not just surgically but also in his patient management and relationship skills. I feel truly fortunate.
The only "negative' is the feel of the penis in the deflated state. It has all kinds of kinks and such from the cylinders and it is "squeaky" feeling from the plastic in the cylinders. I realize that will improve with time but just an observation.
Also, there was definitely some fluid in those cylinders post op because I've got it much more deflated now.
My stated goal from the start was to document from pre op to post op and beyond. I will start taking and posting pics tomorrow, along with measurements, now that I feel confident that I can cycle. I will also try to write my posts in a more standardized format so it will be easy to follow progress.
Looking forward to what tomorrow brings!

The first time it was a bit different but not burning after that I don't remember it being uncomfortable. That could be because the catheter was very uncomfortable for me so much so I removed it early .

Likewise, no issues after the catheter came out. I was expecting to get that burning uncomfortable feeling but fortunately I didn't. All the plumbing seems to be working fine thank goodness.

There is always some irony and humor to be found in any situation. Today marks the one week milestone since my surgery. Generally when I'm in the tub soaking and inflating I have music streaming to pass the time. As I was pumping the implant up today, the song "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie came on, appropriate. A couple of minutes later after I'm inflated I hear the line "Know it sounds funny but I just can't stand the pain" from the song "Easy Like Sunday Morning" by Lionel Ritchie. Finally after 20 minutes as I'm ready to hit the deflate button after max inflation the song "You Make a Grown Man Cry" by the Stones comes on! Felt like crying but I just had to laugh!
