I overdid it 3 weeks after surgery. There was so much bright red blood and chunks that It looked like the movie "Psycho" every time I flushed the toilet. I was freaked out. The response from the surgeon was so full of ennui that it did sort of comfort me in a way. I called up the office frantic, told them what was going on. They said "You overdid it and broke a capillary. Call us only if you can't pee. Drink a lot of water. It will go away in a few days." I did, and it did.
Even bright red blood is nothing to panic about
. It looks like tons of blood. It is full of clots and chunks that even feel weird when they come shooting out. The only time to get to the hospital, is when you can't pee at all cause it's blocked up. If you are still really worried give them a call, but they probably won't want to see you. They'll tell you to lie down and drink water to keep it flushed out. When I did it, it would clear up in the wee hours of the morning, then if I did anything during the day, I obviously broke the capillary
open again, cause it would start all over again. This went on for about
five days. No big deal.
have a drink. Watch some old movies. Be glad you're healing!
