Two of my clients, good friends, one referred the other, called me soon after I told them I was diagnosed and scheduled for surgery, and told me that they want to take me to dinner and a show after my surgery, to celebrate what they were sure would be a successful operation and the fact that it was behind me. I was really touched.
Anyway, we went out last night for dinner, then went to a Foreigner concert. We had 6th row seats and they put on a great show.
I mention this, because I actually had fun. That is a big deal right now for me. On the way back to the car, I said to the one who organized it, that this was so great that they did this for me, and I wanted them to know that it was the first time in a few months, other than when I was at work, that I felt like things were back to normal life and thanks for doing this .
It was good getting out, and while I sort of DIDNT want to go, I'm glad I did. I think forcing yourself to fight through the comfort zone of staying home (for me, at least), is part of the recovery process.
With that said, There was a lot of standing, getting up and down, and "bopping around" (dancing in place), which brought on what felt like a lot of "squirts". And I hit the bathroom about
5 times. I wore a shield, and when I got home it weighed in at .2 ounces, same as when dry. Not sure if it just dried out, or if the squirts weren't really squirts but "almost squirts" that I was able to stop. But I have a feeling they were real, and it dried up.
I sort of feel like I've plateaued in the continence dept. I don't wear any shields when home, as I'm not that active, but I feel like I need them when out, which is annoying and starting to discourage me. I know I need to be patient.
I'm also still waking at night about
wverupy three hours to pee. I hope that resolves soon, and will just assume that it's normal but will ask the Surgeons staff about
I have an appointment with my surgeons office on Wednesday next week, and I'll ask them if it's time for some biofeedback sessions or if I should just keep doing Kegels and wait till my next visit at the end of March.
Speaking of next weeks DRs appointment, it's my six week checkup, and they will be drawing blood for my first pair op PSA. MY HAIR ISNT IN FIRE YET, BUT THE MATCH IS LIT.
