Love this thread and the fact that Nick Nack, a relative newby is already jumping in and helping reassure Lelly! Yes, the clots are normal. I know the feeling of wondering if things are "normal"; not a nurse, not a doctor!!
I just passed my first clot after surgery and I am doing ok... I was shocked but went to dr and its like a scab falling off and its gotta go somewhere... I am dizzy as well. I had my surgery t 1/2 weeks ago. I am new at this as well.... Hang in there.
Keep your thoughts in perspective. try to relax and not pre judge anything.
What happens will happen and we will deal with it then.
Right now is recovery time for you and you will become sensitive to what your body tells you. But if you have any pain, get your Dr on the phone.
We are all waiting patiently for the path results and my fingers are crossed that you will soon be thrown out of this club.
I do so love pushing people out of this club that no one should join.

Light a man ON fire and he's warm forever.

Perfectly normal, after all the uro really scraped up your bladder! You should be back in shape pretty quickly. If you have pain or discomfort after about a week you should contact you doctor and he can give you something to help.
