The AMS rep gave me a pump reset not on the dvd that helped with another problem I had so I would recommend trying those first. After that problem was mostly corrected sometimes it would take 2 or 3 pumps to get the pop. I did repeat the AMS rep fix several times over a period of time. Sometimes the bulb was very hard and others really easy to pump. This all slowly improved. My pump now works properly popping on the first squeeze and the bulb is easy to pump.

Makes sense. I’m going to give it some tried tonight. I’ll check in and let you guys know how it goes.

Or like I have done a time or two, lose my grip and the bulb slips and is propelled into my spongiosum/urethra area.

My pump tubing is wrapped "wishbone" style around my penis with the reservoir and left tube coming down the left side and the right tube coming down the right side. They converge under my penis and cradle my penis as they go down to the pump. As I understand it, most are implanted with one cylinder's tube going over to the opposite side to join the pump.

So I believe the tubing made an "ivy" sort of latching onto the left valve block-end, which makes it difficult to reset by pressing the block-ends.

In any event, I am heading to see Dr. Kramer on Monday morning thankfully. I haven't been able to pop the valve into inflate mode still. The saline is not being pumped though I am able to compress the pump bulb. It sort of seems like it just has a wall up and it can't break through that wall presently and I'm unable to switch it over.

Thanks all!
