Welcome grelax53 to the Forum. I and several others here use a particular one, medical graded, inexpensive and very functional. The link and best price is here:

www.vitalitymedical.com/Product/Encore-Impo-Aid-Battery-Vacuum-Erection-Device-OTC-VTUE.html I have no connection to the website. There's a $10 off coupon still available smilewinkgrin

I am glad to hear you are having a 'normal' or 'average' recovery so far, Hang around with us, we love company.. turn If you are interested in the generic ED pills, there's several threads by that title here, with all the info on cheap and effective alternates.
