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!
