I am having pain right above the bladder area, almost feels like a pulled muscle.
Is the area that will be affected by the TURB make standing up and lying down to cause pain?

I have vicodin, but hate taking it if it is part of the whole ordeal. Just confused since I never had that area prodded , etc.

I just put a call into him. Hope he can at least explain if that is it. Right now I am sittng at sort of an angle and feels better.
What do you think the catheter would be doing? Coming out too far or in too far?

I should have taken medical courses , I feel so stupid.

Don't be afraid of Pain Meds...if they were prescribed to you after the procedure there is no reason to be a martyr and suffer through when there is no need to...

You did great...You made it through...I am proud of you...it is not easy what you did...but at least that part is done...

Hi ,

Surprising how much better you feel when you don't try to do housework after an operation :D

So far , except for absolutely hating this damn catheter, I feel better. Tired but not a lot of pain.
4 more days of this thing up my yingyang Is this considered adultery? ;D

Off for coffee and more rest. I learned my lesson yesterday NO HOUSEWORK!
