How long does it take to were the implant feels like a part of you and your not thinking anymore about walking around with a device in your pants. Also how long does it take to get used to the pump and deflate button. I guess long story short will I ever feel normal again

A couple of months for me. After that I rarely ever thought about it. To me it's just like my dental implants and artificial aortic valve - they're just there, but unnoticed.

At nine months post-op, I'm still getting used to it and I'll probably never 'not' know a device is there. My 4" scrotal scar, painful memories of pre and post-op nurse incompetence and surgeon stupidity and ill-concern about my anatomical reality continues to haunt me almost daily causing weekly nightmares about that procedure and instills fear and trepidation about my ortho surgeries yet to come.

It takes time. Just posted on another topic that I feel like is a part of me. It took 3 months or so to start ignoring it. My ectopic reservoir slipped out into my scrotum and it is hard not to feel it. Kinda feels like a scrotum within a scrotum. But even that difficulty has passed. I feel 90% normal as before and totally ignore it. Let me describe the 10%. As the implant only inflates the shaft, the head never gets engorged. And I notice that difference only. It makes an orgasm slightly harder to get, but not that much. My intercourse time has probably doubled and sometimes tripled. But that isn't really a problem for me (or her.) It takes some getting used to for an orgasm to come. That seems to be the only adjustment to our sex life.

One benefit I find may compensate. Alcohol consumption used to impact my erectile ability, even when I was young. No more. I can have all I want to drink and the pump still inflates me regardless of alcohol consumption. Makes "date-night-Wednesdays" all the more fun. We can party and drink with the rest of them and still expect to have sex when we get home. I had gotten to the point pre-implant that I wouldn't drink anything if I wanted sex later.

I asked the same question as when my doctor said 1 week for basically a desk job and then 6 weeks taking it easy as in light duty. To 3 weeks if a heavy labor job is involved. I’m a pharmacy technician so not heavy labor but not sitting at a desk either. So I took or planning on 2 weeks.

As for when it will feel normal can’t help you there since I’m about 3 weeks before my implant date :(
