Quote from: satyrum on February 02, 2024, 08:47:21 AMSwelling:I had minor edema and hematoma after the surgery. In the third week, the swelling increased because I had to travel for couple of days. But it decreased again with ice and rest (Dr. Hakky's advise). I still have some swelling around my right testicle and at the bottom of my sack (still more swelling than first 2 weeks).
Quote from: satyrum on February 02, 2024, 08:47:21 AMThe Pump:The pump is attached to my right testicle. In fact, it feels like it's attached to edema/hematoma which is attached to the testicle. It also feels like it's attached to the swelling at the bottom of my sack.At first I thought the pump was attached to the scrotal skin (which may be a sign of infection), but I can move it along the skin to some extent. Not freely, but to some extent, let's say one inch. Enough to understand that it's not attached to the skin.

I pump it to %75 inflation, wait for 15 minutes, add couple of more pumps, wait for 10-15 minutes, add more pumps etc.Pump is still too stiff, I assume. That's why when I restart adding more pumps (after waiting for 10-15 minutes during the process), I cannot squeeze the pump for the first 3-4 times. It seems like I have to "massage" it. When I try to squeeze it 3-4 times, the pump softens to some extent. And then it starts sending more liquid, which means I'm adding more pumps. (The pump becomes stiffer after every break which lasts 10-15 minutes.)I'm not sure what a maximum inflation is. The last couple of pumps are basically half-pumps. I feel like I can add couple of more semi-pumps, but I prefer not to. Because of pain. If I wait for 5-10 minutes to take a breather, I know that the pump will be a rock (because of what I wrote in the last paragraph). At that stage (let's say +%90 inflation, 1 cm less than my original length), not even massaging would be enough to soften it.I decided to go for it this week. Added as many pumps as I could despite the pain. I almost hit my original length couple of times (close to 20 cm, bone-pressed-measurement, with full natural engorgement), but the pain was unbearable. In fact, when I started to deflate, I couldn't squeeze my shaft. Forget squeezing, even holding it tight was too painful. I pressed deflation valve, waited for 1 minute, then started squeezing slowly.
Quote from: satyrum on February 02, 2024, 08:47:21 AMTo describe pain in its inflated state: When I walk around, I have pain in my perineum area. When I lay on my back, I have pain in my shaft and in the glans. If I inflate it to %90, pain goes away after deflation. But after hitting my original length, I had too much pain in the glans. I'm talking about persistent pain even after deflating.Am I rushing the process? Should I prefer a slower path? It's already been 4 weeks and I don't want to lose size. In fact I'm not a size-freak... but let's face it, every single male human-being is kind of a size-freak.
Quote from: satyrum on February 02, 2024, 08:47:21 AMAuto-inflation:I had some doubts about having auto-inflation. Especially when I point it downwards during its deflated state. So I decided to take precise measurements. The measurements I'm about to share are NOT bone-pressed. I decided to be more precise. I drew a line with a pen. The line is right at the base of my penis.When I fully deflate, my penis is slightly longer than 16 cm in length (let's say 16,2). When it's time for the next cycling session (12 hours later), it's almost 17 cm in length. The difference is easily more than 0,5 cm.I realized one more thing while experimenting. When I lay on my back and point my penis upwards for 30 minutes, it becomes approximately 16 cm. When I point it downwards and walk around 30 minutes, it becomes 16,5 cm.So I have auto-inflation and auto-deflation? Or maybe I can not stop deflation mode? I squeeze the pump after fully deflating, but squeezing it is not hard at all (Some people say this first pump after deflation should be harder, which is not my experience).Is there any trick to stop/minimize auto-inflation? J (the Aussie) told me that auto-inflation may increase the risk of erosion in the long run. He also told me that Hawk had a technique involving taping?I'd appreciate responses. I'm grateful for this forum. I read a lot of journals on this forum. Trapper, J, Iwill to name a few. Thanks guys.

Quote from: Hawk on February 04, 2024, 10:02:58 PMI have little to offer here. I would also be concerned and make sure my surgeon got this info directly from me and follow his advice.
