I had my AUS implanted June 8, so I can't wait to get where you are now. My surgery went well but I have had some complications since.
My AUS was implanted a month ago, and I also had some complications. These are detailed in a couple of other posts here on HW as well as in chapter four of my blog at www.cancercoupleblog.com
or by clicking the little house icon at the left of this post under my name.
Following the initial implant I couldn't urinate and had a Foley cath for two weeks, then after a cystoscopy I was admitted for emergency surgery to revise the AUS up to the next larger cuff, as you had mentioned. Now I have additional discomforts which were initially dismissed as due to swelling, but I intend to present to the surgeon again tomorrow.
The two posts here detailing my ordeal are "AUS saga continues" at www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&m=3855557
and Banff's stricture thread here: www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&m=3864261&g=3864855#m3864855
If these issues cannot be resolved I intend to ask my Uro to remove the device as soon as I have completed SRT. I was able to deal with total incontinence and did so for many months, but I do not know how to cope with the complications that came with the AUS surgery and primarily from its revision. Perhaps my appt tomorrow will
open another doorway, but its not looking good so far.
