I forgot to mention that whatever he did I lost control of my urine for a day or 2. The funny thing is that did not happen until like the 3rd after the procedure. Of well, I suppose it's to be expected when the bladder gets knocked around some.
Glad the procedure is done. Hoping for the best. It is a good sign that your uro is already thinking about referring you if needed. Too many of them try to do it themselves and that does not usually bring the best outcome for the patient.
The hospital called the TUR a procedure. I wish I could say it felt like a procedure. I'm still sore down there. At least it's becoming more generalized through the bladder area instead of feeling like he dug out my left side. Moving my bowels finally seems to have relieved that a lot. I dropped a bunch of clots in my urine. Seems I need to be on Azo or something like it 3 times a day or the burning pain is not tolerable. I am still having nausea after it. The doctor wanted me urinating every 2 hours after the surgery. I did that all night even without prompting. The surgery was Monday April 29. I'm urinating every 3 to 4 hours now. I am out of the Lortab they gave me and the tylenol seems to be doing well in it's place. I go see the Dr. on Friday May 10. I'm a bit anxious as he says what the pathologist says will determine if I need to have my bladder removed. He won't do that surgery as he is not experienced enough. I'll be moving up with my family if it comes to that. I may be separating from my husband in order to have it done. He probably won't want to come with me anyway and I will be more likely to get assistance. The big C sure changes life. I'm hoping it turns out to be benign or at the very least that he got it all and it's a very slow growing type. He must have figured that as he said when he saw it he felt like it had been growing for about a year or a year and a half. Anyway, still walking and talking here just very carefully .
