It seems like 2 steps forward and 1 step back for quite awhile but you should start getting more control as you continue to heal. I started using a VED for ED. Didn't like it much with the bands so I went to Trimix but I still use it as therapy and I think it has helped me not lose much length. Hang in there, it really does get better.
