Been 3 weeks to the day since my surgery. Last 3 days have been rough and painful. Yesterday, despite being on a med to help, the bladder spasms intensified in quantiy and pain level. Had about
8 - 10 yesterday, each one increasing in length and intensity. The last few had me in real tears and screaming, here alone at the house. I finally called my wife and asked her to come home early to help me. She did, she got a hold of the doctor on call, and he increased the med slightly, and told me to stay off my feet completely for the next few days. He said when you stand, the ballon in the catheter pushes down on the incision and causes the bladder to contract.
He said to expect this to continue until they remove the catheter on December 5th. Not much to look forward to at this point.
