Today’s treatment was an adventure.
They threw me out because I had gas in my rectum, they told me to walk around and try to pass some gas, but without voiding from my bladder. Which I just can’t do, since surgery. I went into the bathroom, and tried to pass gas, while squeezing my wiener closed at the tip. I felt the pee backing up and said, “this can’t be healthy” so I let go and peed all over the place.
So they tell me to drink another cup of water and wait 20mminutes. I drink the water. And within minutes it becomes very clear to me that I have to take a real serious dump. 😫. So off I go, because I know if I don’t do that, I won’t get treated. I knew I would void again, so I grabbed a cup of water and drink it on the way to the bathroom. Sure enough, took a big dump, and let loose from my bladder. (This time I was prepared, and didn’t spray the walls. 😂.
I drink another cup if water, she comes out and says we’re ready for me. I tell her what happened. She says, drink another cup, we’ll take the next patient it will be about
20mminutes. 40 minutes later they come out to tell me it will be another 10 minutes. I tell them I need to partially empty some pee. I was in pain. So I did that, twice.
And still when I finally got in the table I was in pain again. So much that I was doing breathing exercises while the machine was whirring around. And I was leaking on the table,
I started taking colace twice a day last night, per Drs suggestion because I had been constipated, so I hope by tomorrow it does the trick and things get easier.
I just can’t get the hang of the bladder/rectum thing
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
