Just came back home from my RALP that was conducted yesterday at U. Penn Presbyterian by Dr. Lee. I guess the operation went well, at least that's what they all told me. I don't remember anything after getting "something to take the edge off" in pre-op until I woke up in my room later in the afternoon. The operation apparently took about
70 min and Dr. Lee said both nerves were spared. Urine was bloody yesterday, but was clear today so I guess that's a real good sign. My abs are a little sore around the wounds, but are very tolerable. Although I didn't eat anything solid until breakfast this morning, it was enough for me to say that hospital food sucks and that's enough of a reason to get out of there. My only disappointment, if you can call it that, besides the food was the fact that they didn't say much about
keeping the catheter lubed. Had it not been for this message board, I don't think that I would have asked for some.
So, I guess this is where the real journey begins?
