Hi folks; Some general questions if I may?
Is it normal so still see an occasional pinkish urine (blood?) drip at the end of urination? Just a few, once or twice a day. Also see some pink spotting in pad?
Has anyone experienced a wicked sensation and the very end of their urination session at this point past their surgery? This is happening for about 2 weeks. I got the cath out 20 days ago. Just as i empty, this odd, pressure type pain occurs; it actually makes me yelp. I found that if I kegel just before I finish, it reduces the pain.
I've achieved some unplanned/occasional semi-erections either by making out & cuddling or just wake up with it... however, it feels like my urethra all along it's length is stressed and it hurts. I get a pins & needles feeling. Sound familiar to anyone?
I'll mention these things to my doctor when I see him, but I like to run it past those with first hand experience.
Thanks in advance, all.
