I've got one and while I haven't used it every day, I do find that it is helpful when I do remember to use it and can add significant development time when one can't play the trumpet (such as on a long drive).

It's essentially a shiny metal way to do the pencil exercise, but I never carry around those pencils so the P.E.T.E. stays in my shirt pocket so it's always there (when I remember.)

Be sure to follow the doctor's advice regarding playing the trumpet -- you don't want to damage what's been done and possibly face a longer period without playing.
