As you are now 3 days post surgery, I hope you are healing up well. I am just about 4 weeks out and looking forward to activation in two days. I still remember what it was like early on. You can read my account under AUS 800, and you have already read VinceinMt. Vince's experience was so very much like my own. It may be so for you too. If so, than you can take comfort knowing what's ahead and that the light at the end of the tunnel will be worth it. After the incisions healed, and the bruising went away, I found the tender scrotum to be the worse discomfort. Everything seemed to stick together, which made it even worse. I keep and extra towel handy, so I can keep as dry as possible. Later, I found that hydrocortizone gel was very helpful. I bought it at CVS. The doughnut cushion was also nice to have. The first bowel movement took some effort, and came on the 4th day. Quite a relief. I took the stool softeners twice a day, for three weeks. Vince was kind enough to send me an email of his day to day experience. I have his email and have added my comments. You can email Vince, and I from our profiles if you are interested in a copy. If Vince is ok with it, I can send you a copy in word format. The email is mostly his, so I think it best he agrees to share first.
