Mine was put in while I was still sedated during my resection surgery. I had to take it home with me after my release. Wore it for 2 weeks while my bladder healed. Didn't hurt at all but it was kind of gross dragging it around with me, but since I was pretty stationary trying to recoup it wasn't too bad.
