Hi everyone, before I was released on Thursday, the ward nurse redid my dressings, when we got home I went to sit on the toilet, and quickly realised that the nurse had not allowed enough loop on the catheter....OUCH...as Mr willy was pulled straight...so had to sit in all my glory while my wife removed the tape and we worked out the right amount of slack...
Yesterday, I observed that the drain bottle was nearing only 200ml left, and as the nurse was not coming till Monday to take out the drain, I needed a new bottle, rang hospital, they said come in for bottle change, drove to hospital, (45min) changed bottle, got home at 3pm, did usual stuff, showered changed, and settled down, at 7pm, stood up, caught drain hose in recliner, and broke it!...rang hospital, they said "come in ASAP"...and very sheepishly returned, to comments like " are you sure you would not like to stay overnight" and "see you in 2 hours".
Today I am staying put.
