In brief: Not worrying...

Hi! AlistairK, Seeing variable length of the string attached to stent is normal reflecting the variable penile length between erection or no erection.
All what you have to do is just be careful not to incidentally pull it out. More doubt? Call your surgeon for clarifying your concern. (In fact, I have answer similar Q for two times.) If more, to www.HealthTap.com/dr-Lin with RQPWJC to login...
