My surgeon started me on injections and the pump 6 weeks out from surgery. My instructions for pump use was to pump untill it began to hurt a little, hold it for a few moments and release the pressure. Then repeat the process for about
15 minutes twice a day, when I am not injecting. I have found that even the number 10 ring is too painful to use so I just pump and hold.
Sounds like you are progressing pretty well and there are be better things to come in your future!
