Hey folks, well we`re 6 days out from cath rermoval and after the pad they gave me at the docs office i havent ever needed another one. i feel very blessed. So far i need to pee about every 2 hrs or so and that is also the case at nite. i chalk this up to irritation but wanted to ask if others also found this to be the case and how long it took for things to calm down. thanks guys Tim

Tim: I also am now without any incontinence problems, but I find that I can't hold urine as well as before the surgery. I urinate every couple of hours at least. Not a big issue, all things considered. Glad you're doing so well.

My experience was that in the initial months after recovering continence, I did feel that I needed to go pee more frequently. Have read medical explanation for this, but couldn't find the link for it at this time. The frequency/urge has slowly returned to be more similar to pre-surgery.
