Hi George, Tamu, and Jay,

That pinching-burning sensation when you urinate is normal, and can linger for even a month or more, and it may only occur once in a while. Of courses if it seems to intensify, or it does not improve, then it could be the sign of an infection, but you guys seem to be doing OK now so keep up the good work. Drink enough water, walk daily, and keep up with the Kegels. Soon you'll be able to cough, sneeze, and laugh with wreckless abandon.

I hope you all have a wonderful holidays, and a very Happy New Year.
