Curt- Glad to hear things wwent well with you too, good luck with the pathology report. As to the leaking you experiencing I think the fact that it only happens when your having BM's sounds like its something that is not uncommon. When do you get the sucker out? The 18th? I should tell you a little about
that, I first had the xray cistogram, they fill your bladder with contrasting fluid through the catheter ( not uncomfortable) and check to see if the stiches have healed, if there is any leaking or blood clots. Then the catheter comes out. Its held in place by a balloon (I didnt know that) they let the air out and pull the sucker out , but before they do that they fill you wil saline again through the catheter. The removal doesnt really hurt, then they wait to see if you pass out the amount of saline they just put in.
