Subdenis, I remember we were fearing about
surgery a couple of months ago but somehow I took the lead and I can tell you now about
When I woke up I have spams (kind of urge to urinate despise I wore the catheter) and pain in a kidney (maybe gas). I was in observation for more than 24 hours and they did not let me get up (for nothing special, just the stupid protocol they follow in that hospital). I guess I was given a suboptimal amount of pain killers at that time, paracetamol and something only slightly stronger. Anyway, even with this non-standard type of pain care the bothering was bearable, 6-8 on 10) and the best part was that after about
12 hours it totally disappeared for good. I have not had any other major surgery before to compare, all I can tell for this one is that taking care of the catheter is the worse part.
