Jetman - Matt,
Hi every one, thank you for your replies, they have been helpful. I went for my 4th Cystogram this Monday, Oct. 8th, with the hope that my catheter would be taken out, but know luck there. It still has a small leak and I have to wait until Friday Oct. 19th to try again. I am told its because six days after my surgery I got an infection in that area, and had to be hospitalized, that I am taking so long to heal.
