I started using the pump about
4 weeks after the catheter was removed. I used it about
6 days a week for awhile. I used a script
o to mark the length of erections on the outside of the tube. I don't use it as much now but the erections are much shorter than my "best" markings so I would say, yes, stick with the therapy plan.
Btw, I use a manual pump also.
