I thought I would clear up a few things of my penis pain and weak stream problems that plagued me from the catherter days. Odd as it sounds here is what we think happened. I had a big battle with kidney stones the month before my surgery. The last procedure was two weeks before they took out the old walnut. But I had not seen any stone fragments in a week. The doctor had asked.

When they put the catheter in a chunk of stone was caught in my penis or the stone fragment came out with the tube. Either way The fragment was then wedged between the plastic tubing and the old pee tube. When the nurse removed the catherter I posted a reply on one thread saying how much it hurt. The pain when peeing never went away, then I posted a question about the stream slowly going down. Well as you have probably already read in my post about penis therapy the doctor did the break the scar tissue treatment. Well the first pee the fragment came flying out. No more peeing pain.
Bizarre but true.
I feel sure the fragment was there when the tube was there because of the pain it kept causing me but I thought it was normal.


12/06/07 DaVinci and open prostate surgery after difficulties in breathing stopped the davinci.
Walked a lot
90% control the day the catherter removed.
pad only for a sneeze before the week was out
No pads most of the second week.

Pushing the envelope a little too far on the title...
