I will have the AUS installed next month and I am actually more concerned with the discomfort
Good luck with your surgery, and with the AUS. You will be VERY dark and discolored down there for a while. The cuff will be uncomfortable also. Sitting on hard surfaces is particularly challenging. The spot on my scrotum where I have to squeeze the bulb (once it is activated) also was tender for a while. Now two years later most of the pains have eased. Immediately post-op one tends to question whether it was a good idea, but within a few weeks it gets better. And once you get used to it, it's a life changer. But there are still some times when I can't figure out for a few seconds why I can't pee, then remember the pump.
If you are not provided with one in your "welcome packet", be sure to buy a medical ID bracelet or necklace. Some guys just carry a card but I try to keep my wallet as thin as possible. Again, good luck.
