Rick,

Hang tough a bit longer. That blood coming out of your penis when you urinate or have a bowel movement is from bladder spasms. I had the same thing. My surgeon had me tape the cath tube to my leg and I found it was worse if it was tight. I finally would untape it and let it hang loose while I sat on the toilet and concentrated on relaxing when I had a bowel movement. It eventually got more tolerable. Hope your doc recommended a stool softener too for you. That helped alot.

Be happy about your good surgery outcome and get through the cath, and you'll be a free man soon from that bag! Good luck.

I'm one year past surgery today and it's all becoming a very surreal experience.
 
43 yo. now
 
5/07 PSA 4.65 at routine physical
6/07 biopsy Gleason 7 (3+4)...diagnosed at 41 y.o.
6/07-9/07 manic research and interviews with physicians across the country in search of the "right" decision.  I went to Mass General in Boston, Loma Linda, University of Chicago and Northwestern.
9/17/07 - RRP at Northwestern Memorial by Dr. William Catalona.  Thankful the father of the PSA test was right here in Chicago.
Post op path report confirmed Gleason 7 (3+4). negative margins, no seminal vesicale involvement, no lymphatic or vascular invasion, bladder and urethral free and tumor volume was 5% of 27.3g.  
9/27/07 - catheter removal...let the games begin...
12/31/07 - threw out the pads (I only had used 1 pad per day for protection against minor drips)
 
I started Trimix 8 weeks after surgery with success.  I hope someday I won't need injections, but I hope more that my PSA stays at 0 forever.
 
9/17/08 One year past surgery and doing well.  PSA less than .1 and ED continues to get better and showing reasonably good results using Levitra which for a long time did nothing.

I didn't have as much blood as you, but I had some, and I had a lot of leaking around the catheter - this had me a little nervous. Right after surgery that whole area was delicate or so it seemed. Not to mention the swelling of the twins. I also found it much better to tape the catheter to the top of the thigh. This was especially helpful at night when I would toss around in bed. I didn't want the pull on the catheter to be directly on my bladder.

I cannot advise you to completely ignore your blood situation - but most likely it is just something that goes with the territory. A lot of radical stuff (thus the name Radical in RRP) went on down there and it takes some healing time. I hope it will soon clear up.
