I was discharged from the hospital earlier today following da Vinci. I'm really enjoying carrying this bag around (not). So far not much catheter or bladder discomfort, but lots from the incision sites, specially when walking. Most of the gas is out of my abdomin at least, so that feels a lot better.
What should I be expecting over the next few days until the catheter is removed? What should I be doing proactively to avoid whatever might be coming my way?
I've read Alfred's collated posting at: https://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?f=35&m=1717641 many thanks, this awesome and had some good things to be aware of ahead of time. Any other suggestions?
Surgeon said everything looked as he expected. Given the extensiveness of the cancer in the biopsy, he felt he had to go a little wider and take about 30% of the nerve bundles on each side to give the best chance at clear margins. I'll get the pathology on Tuesday morning.
