Be sure you are drinking lots and lots of water to flush the anesthesia out of your system. I was told minimum 8 - 16 oz bottles of water a day.
Stool softener are a must, so you are doing that right. Keep the catheter in the bucket until you get to the toilet to empty it. You are in no shape to be cleaning up pee.
Otherwise, Welcome to the other side!!!!!!
