As you know from my other thread, this morning catheter #2 was taken out by my regular doctor. Never had much flow or out put today, but still thought I was ok. By 330 this afternoon, I was completely stopped and pressure and fluid backing up. What an insane nightmare. It was too late by the time my wife got my message to see regular doctor, so they had us go to local ER at hospital, 2 minutes away. Took 3 hours and 2 nurse plus one doctor and two different catheters before they got it right and relieved me of much agony. Apperently, they don't do it as often or as well as they do at the urologist office. So I am back home, tired wore out wife, on pain med, as my poor "winky" feels chewed up from their attempts. I feel defeated, almost in a surreal way. I have to call my dr. tommorow, to see what, when, and how they are going to handle this set back. Tommorow will make day 46 and catheter #3. Thanks for the encouraging remarks from earlier today, don't know why my recovery is getting hung up on the easy part. Geez.
