Yesterday (11/5) morning I was subjected to a cystogram. They filled my bladder with some ice cold solution and then with my bladder full, asked me to move around on a table. When finished, they drain the stuff back into the bottle in preparation for the next guy. I must have done something right because the radiologist commented "perfect" and told me I'd likely be rewarded by having my catheter removed. Oh happy day!
Then met with urologist/surgeon and, as "promised" had catheter removed. Holy moly, glad I was asleep during the insertion. It wasn't really painful, felt more like urinating at 100 psi for 1-2 seconds.
My catheter removal experience from a previous post.
