Surgery today was right on schedule, no real issues or delays.
The circumcism part went as expected, but exploratory surgery failed again. Last attempt was in 2015. Surgeon still wasn't able to get a wire, let alone a scope, through or behind the scar blockage at the bladder neck. Said he really pushed hard this time, but no way to break through. Very large hardened blockage. Too much risk to damage rectal area, so he backed off. So still left with no way to enter and inspect my bladder.
Even with extra pain meds today, extreme pain post surgery. It's about
what I was warned about
and expecting. The next 2-3 days will be tough to endure, but hoping to see some letup after that. Dr. said first 2 weeks will be the hardest, and it may take a month to six weeks to be back to "normal".
Well, I made it through another ordeal in what's been a long list of ordeals since 2008. The nursing staff, both pre-op and in recovery, did a first class job. Was thankful for that.
all I can handle writing for now, will try to check back in the morning. Got a long night ahead of me.
