Early to say but i had the pinching too. It actually feels more like a pulling. Almost feels like there is a stitch holding the pump to the skin. Turns out that my pump had adhered to my sack. This is a common problem if thats the case. Warm baths help it to release. Takes a little time but just have to deal with the pinch as you call it. It should pass in time if thats what it is. Hope this helps.

Thanks Bandit..... I think the Dr stitched the pump in place. That would not be a problem would it? Most Dr do that when placing the pump don't they? Was yours stitched? How did you get it free? I can feel my pump. It seems to be free because I've been feeling around for the deflate button. Im new to this implant procedure. Hope Im not confusing you trying to describe it.



My surgeon tied mine down... just like a tarp hahaha... he said keeping it low is best for it's operation. :)

Yeah. I heard pumps can be stitched in place. My was not as i asked my doc. Just stuck. Warm baths and some pulling and manipulation on my part. Took couple of months then one day i noticed it wasn't stuck any more. Also, pinching is a basic part of the healing process. As others said, i had also some pinching where the tubes are. Eventually, your implant will be part of you and you almost forget its there. Heal up !

I spent about 4 days pumped up fully around week 3 or so. I thought I was pressing deflate button. Got a doc appt and found out pump had turned deflate button now pointed straight out. I could not tell since scrotum was still swollen a bit. Now at 7 weeks it is real obvious where deflate button is.

It gets a lot easier to tell where button is as time goes by. Button has moved to about a 45 degree angle now in regards to straight out and right leg.

just an update. its been 2 weeks as of today. as everyone has told me it is getting better, the pinching and pain slowly going. feeling better mentally. hoping by the next couple of weeks the pain all be gone.
My next mental issue im going to have is when I meet the Dr to show me how to inflate and deflate. he keeps his people deflated for 6 weeks. I hope I don't freak out when I inflate and see what I lost in size and girth! I'll have to pray the LGX will do what it says it will do. Still seeing my dick small and like a tube of tooth past is a freaky feeling mentally....

Glad everything is healing well needhelp. I like the new size (girth) even though it's deflated. The little general has doubled its flaccid size. Before it was a scared turtle. Has a definite lean to the right side of body. Pain is becoming minimal. I'll probably scream like a girl when activated.

The skin of my scrotum was incredibly sensitive (like pins is a good way to describe it) for at least six month. It's almost all gone but it still sometimes hurts in certain spots if I squeeze it. Never thought to mention it since it's pretty much faded away.

YES....that's exactly how mine is . Getting better but still get those "pins" feeling. I guess it does do away? ... just takes time

needhelp,
Having had 4 months of pure he!! with my pump so high that it rubbed constantly, held my penis out not down and locked up repeatedly I can tell you that since it was moved down to where yours is now, oh my. You need to send your doc Christmas cards every year. even some of the best don't really put the pump low every time for some strange reason. You have hit the pump jackpot! Just be patient. In time I have been able to angle mine permanently so that a one handed works each and every time. It sits straight but the hoses are on my left side. I pull up on my scrotum hold it underneath against my balls trap it with 3 fingers and squeeze. Works first time every time.
Believe me this was a great choice for us all.
