Had open RP surgery last monday (8 days ago), all seemed to go well (will know more in 2 weeks) I was sent home on friday - 5 days later. Uneventful weekend and back in on yesterday for the catheter taking out. Did my 3 measured wee's no problem (all around 250-300ml) then a good bladder scan.
Went home with a spring in my step as i really found the catheter uncomfortable.
I'm drinking plenty, I'm getting the urge to wee and I can hold it in ok. No accidents as yet. Only needed to get up once in the night. Once going flow is good, it was quite rose in colour yesterday, today it was more wee coloured. Plenty of dribbles and false "i think I've finished" at the end but nothing that a bit of toilet paper can't sort.
BUT - The inital getting going bit - breaking the seal as it were is quite painful. Once im actully weeing properly the pain dies away. Difficult to describe where the pain is , but it is internal its not at the end.
Is this normal ? Will it ease with time when the join fully heals ?
I realise its only been a week and bit since it was cut and sewn back together but im in a bit of a panic
