I have 85 more days to find out if I am a candidate for either an AUS or Sling with my urologist and then hopefully Dr Angermeier at the Cleveland Clinic.
Your prayers are asked for so I don't get scar tissue forming.
I presently use the Obson Pump and penis rings to maintain an erection.   Kind of a pain but finally getting hang of it.  I really don't think I  want an artificial pump installed for that.
   Does the Pump work with

Well, I would be really happy if any pump or rings would help me. So, Enjoy the fact your stuff is still working, with a little help. Pre-op I used the pump and it is not what i dreamed of years back, but, hey, if it works.... I am assuming you are just a few, maybe six, post op? and NOT speaking for personal experience, it takes a while before willy works ( they say). Meantime hang in there and remember things will get better as times goes on, well not forever, but in a few years? Sounds like you are going for some authoritative advice and that helps in making any decisions. I am going to Methodist Houston in a couple of weeks for much the same type of advice. I know I will be more at ease to find out one way or the other and I hope you will to.

I have had my AUS pump activated for six weeks and everything is working fine.
Have not done anything about a pump/implant for ED but may consider it now that i have the incontinence fixed with the AUS.

I am using the Pump now and have been. It works rather well for ED

Has anyone had an AUS and used the Pump? If so how'd it go?

Has anyone had the Sling and used the Pump? If so how'd it go

I had Dr Angermeier perform both the AUS and IPP procedures for me. He's #1 in my book!!! Between the two procedures, I tried using the VED; however, it didn't work for me, therefore I had the IPP procedure.
