Congrates with the successful surgery. It was a pleasure meeting you and Debbie Thursday night.
Don't worry. When the swelling and bruising goes down, you'll be able to grasp the release pump just fine. It will be hard to press at first, but it will get easier each time you use it. Biff told me (Biff, where are you?) that his now works so well he can pee in a public restroom in a urinal and no one notices that he reaches down and opens the vave. I'm not there yet, but no doubt will be. Thus far in a public restroom, I have to go into a stall and shut the dorr to pee so as not to moon anyone!
Did you notice Divo's post? They found no info on AUS until they came to Healing Well. As we share our experiences and as others here do, ignorance regarding these artifcial devices will not be so wide-spread. Tuesday I am meeting and having lunch with another HW guy who is considering these implants. He wants to know all about my experience with them and I will share with him with the purpose of being a help to him.
I feel gratified to know that I might help someone with some issues that I had such a difficult time learning about.
Thank you Healing Well for making this site available.
Kelly, hope I too can see you on Oct 6th.
