Good to hear from you but sorry about the pain you are continuing to experience. My pain lasted for a rather lenghty time so I had to put off take ED meds for over 5 months. Felt like I didnt need a bad headache on top of my other pain. Walking and movement in general seemed to disapate the pain, at least for awhile. You are just a little over one month out from surgery so all in all seems like you are doing well, just not as well as you would like. Try not to compare your recovery period to others recovery time as we all heal at our own speed.
I have not used a pump so will let others respond to that question.
But thanks for the update and hope to see you in a couple of months up in the mountains and I will buy you lunch.
