So happy to hear things are on the upswing with the relief from pain….
I agree 100% the donut pillow takes the pressure off the perineum area…and I think this is why we’ve had such a smooth time with having no pain and continence has been so good. Buddy’s added a nice soft pillow over the donut just to give it that extra softness. You can only do so much with suggestions and they have to do what they want…and hopefully they will listen to their body. You don’t need battles!! That little sphincter muscle is a very important part of the whole urinary process now and you can bet a zillion dollars we are going to protect him in any way possible. We need him to be good for many years to come!!!!
I am so proud of my Buddy. Yesterday ~ we were working out in the yard and he said it was time for him to go in because the little sphincter muscle was telling him that he’d had enough for one day!!!!
Keeping you in our thoughts and prayers as we all continue on the path of recover/healing.
Take care friend….. Lee
