Jay & Tamu -
Boy, you guys sure set a guy's mind at ease. I figured that I couldn't be the only guy out there to have run into this experience.
Jay, what a heck of an experience you've had with hang. I'm happy to hear you too are finally rid of that thing. And, I agree with you - I can't imagine the circumstance where I'd ever welcome plugging foley back in. Some guys don't seem to have any problems. How lucky is that?
I too feel a "pinching or slight burning sensation" in the penis when the spigot is running. Nothing major, just more of an annoyance. Hoping that will pass as well. Tamu, your case sounds exactly like mine. I'll keep my fingers crossed for both of us.
