Hi Nick, glad to here you are doing so well on your road to recovery - surfing! Wow good on you. Regards alchohol, i'm just on the herbal tea currently with a good cuppa first thing each morning. Good to here your out running Nick, boosts my confidence a bit as i do enjoy getting out cycling even though its just with the younglings nowadays.
I know its early days but so far have had dry nights apart from the very first night. Yes i must admit, i keep having little squirts throughout each day and put this down to moving around so much, bending, squatting etc. I'm having to train my pelvic floor muscles to respond before doing anything and have to remind myself all the time to do it. Currently following the squeezy app as advised by Probbo and this has proven very usefull so far.
Ive been concerned about little fella and erections from before the operation (Da Vinci) and surprisingly woke up around 3.00am for a pee with a good 3/4 erection! First time post op thats happened - fingers crossed. Yes my perenium feels like ive done a 20 mile bike ride so just taking things steady,
I opened the pack i received from nhs (Macmillan nurse) regards a Stoma 2 penis pump kit (hand pump not battery type) last night and, after initially being confused-amused-concerned by the whole setup, can see thats going to be a whole new journey, especially as i have been reading mixed responses to it.
Staying positive and getting more gentle walks in, squeeze - release.
9/2/23 - Not sure it its a combination of the amount of water i'm drinking and the cold weather but peeing a lot today. Good thing is i can feel it and hold for a short spell before going to toilet as opposed to just peeing myself!
