I found Jhuno's first post on Big Mac's AUS thread
. I'm giving him his own thread so folks can say hello.
I have an AUS installed on March 6, 2014, was discharge the following day without the cath. During the last 6 weeks I suffered all the pains that you are going through and after the AUS activation three days ago I am still having pain from all 3 incisions especially the bottom one. This may help you relieve discomfort while sitting down, try using a donut cushion seat. Also, if you have some left over Depend pads or diapers, just trim it around the edges so it will not brush against your delicate area which causes more pain and discomfort. I think with all the pain and discomfort I've went through since the surgery, I can say now that the AUS really works and I've been totally dry since after the AUS activation. Hang in there and you'll see the light at the end of the tunnel pretty soon. Good luck! ....... Jhuno
