Hey racesec -
There are lots of guys here with implants - I'm one of them since 1981.
Getting 'back to normal' may take awhile. Everyone reacts differently to the implant. The implant cylinders will take time to settle in - as you pump the implant the tissues will expand and after a time the implant will reach it’s final ‘flaccid state”. So, yes, it is common for the implant to feel full.
For me, I never achieved a normal flaccid state. Again, it all depends on how your body reacts.
As to the pump position - has the Dr. advised of pulling and manipulating the pump as much as possible? You want to keep the pump mobile in the scrotum to keep from having an adhesion—that’s where the body tissues start to attach to the implant.
Hope this helps - feel free to ask anything else.
