Today is Monday and I would follow thru with that call to Dr. or PA and discuss the flow issue. I consider that to be on the safe side so by all means follow your instincts. You might also ask how the beginning of an infection would appear to you.
Please also keep your water intake up and keep you body clean and soft with a little skin care. Besides that feels good and gosh knows we need something that feels good about now after all that fall-der-ra, right.
The stinging you describe could also be called a dull pain right when you pee. That is usually your muscles pushing to stop the flow on tissue just tramatized by surgery. My dull pain lasted for around 45 - 60 days. So be patient the tissue is wet and takes time to heal. Also ask about starting kegels again as to when. Kegels actually take from 8 -12 weeks to produce noticable results so again be patient.
Nice to see you are well and please be a good patient.
