Britt - good luck with the cysto. As for the tendonitis get thee to a physical therapist. My foot dr. sent me to one and I thought " how the heck is that going to help - I can barely walk". Well help it did. I had to do the excersises for a long time after I was discharged from her care or the pain would come back. It has been severl months now that I have not had to do any of the exercises but at the first sign of pain, I would sure do them again. Hope you can get some help for it so you only have to worry about one thing at a time. Bobbie
Im afraid that I was forced to reschedule. I woke up with a severe attack of tendonitis in my achilles. Its so bad i couldnt get to the car. I can bareky get to the bathroom! Its so tight Im afraid it might rupture if I put my weight on it!. Im on for the 22nd now. That will make it sine nov 13th when I had the TURB so Im aa ways off schedule here.
I have my first post TURB cysto tomorrow. I mentioned that the urine screen showed negative for cancer cells so I pray for a free ride. Its been almost 4 months since I had the TURB done. Do to losing my uro and trying to find the records Its almost been 5 mo. I called today to ask if they used a fex or rigdi scope. The PA was in surgery and the tech didnt know but guessed it was the flex. I had been warned by Mike to walk out if they tried a ridig cath.
Im hoping they can pull this off in the lad this go around! Last time it was stopped due to pain in tryine to pass the prostate. The path report said the dr had reamed out the stricture to 22(?) I hope its still open. A good sign is the fact that the TURB was able to get thru and even with the lage cath they left in for 3 days, I had minimal pain when it was removed and had no pain in urinating as I had from a previous cath. britt
