It is stiff at first it will soften up the more you use it. You could still have some swelling. May try to ice the try the valve. I know at my 8 week check dr said I still had some fluid around the pump
OK, I finally got it to pump up. Now I can't deflate the thing. My wife and I just spent 2 hours trying. I was able to get it deflated just a little only after sitting in a 100-degree hot tub and toughing out some serious pain. It's hard to understand why this happened. Maybe it's a function of the length of the tubes that come pre-assembled to the Titan? I'm almost at 7 weeks and my pump is somehow attached to my right testicle and they move together. I HATE the Titan Touch deflate valve. Mine is oriented so that the button faces straight back and the other side straight ahead (instead of side to side) so it's difficult to grasp. Because of the right testicle interference, I can only use my left hand. The pump works great but the deflate valve sucks.
