Don't know anything about pumps at this point, but wanted to wish you and your boys, the best of Christmas spirit as you are together. That's the best part of all.

Pat,

There are many pumps that are recommended by members here.

I used an Osbon Erec-Aid pump.  Works very well.

Good luck with your surgery and recovery.
