When you attempt to pump up, does it feel normal? That is, squeeze against resistance once or twice and get a sudden collapse of the pump bulb (often described as a "pop" or "giving")? followed by easy compressions that get gradually more resistant?

If abnormal, what are the differences?

The AMS Patient Liaison may be able to help just over the phone. This is one of the things they are there for.

Correct. Jamie Matson is great at talking people through issues. She talked me through a factory re-set when I first got my implant. I thought I was going to have to go to the OR again but she just walked me through it. :)
