hi guys thanks for all your thoughts. I am also relieved but I do have a question. I seem to have pain when I urinate and some bladder discomforts. I know a week ago when the dr took the stents out he said I could get an infection,I supppose I should check in with that but does anyone remember after the surgery if they had any bladder pains or painful urination? I dont mean to be blunt here at all but Iv'e been intimate with my husband twice since surgery,,I dont know if that is it or what. I had bladder spasms for a few days after surgery and was on pain meds and I thought I was recovering very well ..I think maybe I've felt kind of icky now for 3 days,, I mean upon urination. how is everyone else feeling? and I hope it's ok weather your way. I know we hit the deep freeze this way. many best wishes.. I wont forget u guys and visit when I can.
