Glad to hear it went well. I got mine AUS turned on after 4 weeks and here's what happened. The resident came in and pushed the button and, boom, it was activated before I could blink. He told me to drink some water and walk around and come back in 30 minutes or when I thought I was ready to pee. So, I went down the elevator with my wife to get some coffee but by the time I got off elevator I was pretty sure I was peeing all over myself, it sure felt that way. Quick trip to the restroom and hummmm, dry! I guess your nerves have to get retrained for the new feelings. My case ended up begin unusual in that after a few days I got some burning pain from the cuff's pressure on my urethra. This went on for a month at least and I came up with a "break-in proceedure" that I will be glad to share, should you have that problem. However, I was pretty much the only one of my doctor's patients that devolped this, so you probably won't have this.
Anyway congratulations and I hope you like yours as much as I like mine. Keep us posted on your progress.
