Hello Chuck... So glad you have that behind you. Sorry you are having so much discomfort but hopefully that will subside in the next day or so. Now comes waiting for the path report part, which we can all empathize with you is an anxious time. Take care and rest as much as you need to. You may see some blood (or probably all ready have) in the cath bag, but it is generally where the bladder is shedding during the healing process. If you feel the pain gets worse, or see more than what you think should be a normal amount of blood, call your doc. That probably won't happen, but I'm just mentioning it so you won't think the worst has happened.
Your post is right where it should be, and am glad you got into the forum with no problem. We knew you could do it! Was nice having you on Sunday chat. Join us anytime! Wishing you the best on Wednesday/Thursday. Please let us know how it goes.
Best wishes... Catherine
