Coming up on 2 years

Postby sliphill » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:25 am

Can't believe it, time flys. Are there any of you here from back then. How are you guys doing? Implant is still working great. Now and again I don't feel that pop on the second pump. When that first happened, I think it took 6 or 7, I thought uh oh! My doctor has long since retired, forever great ful to him. For the new guys, hang in there, It will be worth it. 8-)

Great to hear that you're doing good. Was re-implanted 4/5 and slowly improving and getting used to the new one, AMS CX 21cm. So much easier than the first time.

Yes going incredibly well. GF is addicted and I keep making her squirm by threatening that a revision (way in the future) may mean a bigger cock :lol:
She feigns fear but is actually excited by the prospect!

Squirm with anticipation or squirm with trepidation?

I think he meant both. Fake trepidation, real anticipation. "Oh, please don't make me to do that again" kind of thing. Lol.

I'm at 2.5 years...best health move I ever made. Occasionally I have to do a deflation block reset when the "pop" doesn't kick in, but otherwise the LGX is the bomb. There is an adjustment period, but eventually you'll wonder why you didn't go "bionic" years ago...

What is the deflation block reset?

When it didn't pop on the 3rd or 4th pump, I was thinking the worse. But it finally did pop.

I think ccrider was referring to having to press the deflation button again.

When I deflate, I press the deflate button until I feel a click. The click is apparently the deflate valve switching from locked in the "keep the erection" position to locked in the "deflate mode" position. The click is very subtle/faint and easy to miss. If I press the button partway, I can deflate without the click, but when I release the deflate button, the deflation stops because the valve is not locked in "deflate mode" and stays in "keep the erection mode". I suspect that there is a middle position where the valve allows deflation but did not flop over - no click. In this position, getting the "flop-click" from deflate mode to inflate mode may not be possible until you press the deflate button completely.

So, the upshot is; If you cannot inflate for any reason, press the deflate button deeply and try to inflate again. Repeat those steps until it works. If that does not work, call the AMS representative (or post on this forum) for advice.

This advice is intended for AMS valves. I cannot attest to Coloplast valves, but imagine that some similar cycle might work.
