I'm looking for a recommendation for a good vacuum pump.  Please indicate where it can be purchased as well as if it's covered by insurance.

I bouught a Vacurect OTC Vacuum Erection Device on line from and it works good.

PSA 6.6, , biopsies On October 26, 06 with 5 positive and less than 30% cancer in any of them. Gleason 3+3.

Da Vinci surgery Feb 8, 2007 at SF VA hospital. 

Home 2/9/07, Catheter out 2/16/07,

biopsies after surgery Gleason 3 + 4, T2

(waiting for all of the other pathology info)

Minimum leakage, up to urinate twice a night.

The prostate surgery agravated a hernia on my right side I did not nkow I had, surgery for that on 2-27-07 and the pain and discomfort from that was much worst than the prostate surgery.

The erecaid and Vacuret pumps are very expensive $250 to over $400.  I bought an Encore Revive manual pump on line for $79.  It seems to work just like the more expensive models.  I avoided the battery operated pumjp, because I wanted to control the rate of suction.

Some medical plans will pay a small amount towards purchase if you have a doctors Rx.

I bought from a dealer for Encore Medical.
