Seems like a big pee bag would be an uncomfortable sorta warm while you sleep.
Glad you're on the mend.

Yeah- it sits in the bucket on the floor.  The big bag has a longer hose.  It's also strapped to my thigh, but if you move too much you know it quickly.

I have 6 holes in me,


Built for speed or pleasure?


Catheter comes out tomorrow at 4

Will they do a Urine Voiding Trial?  That will be fun.

No idea.  When the drain was in post-surgery they were checking for urine in the drain, which was negative, so they sewed a good seal.

I'm just hoping it's out and I can start to resume life.

After they take it out, the 1st time that you pee is kind of a big deal.  Don’t be surprised if there is some blood in your urine though, it’s to be expected.  But it is a sign that things are getting back to normal.

Good news Clay, I'm glad to hear it went well. Sharp objects near ones gentleman's area is never a fun thing.

Things are MUCH better today.  Still some leakage, but I can piss like a racehorse- and I have my mobility back!

 Glad to hear you're on the mend....+1 on the returned mobility...  As noted prior, I always tried to grab the edge of a door while standing if I felt a sneeze or cough coming on..the 'other' thing is poor willy...  been since August 2017 with the assistance of an injection since the last time he 'came to attention'..... I decided then and there, ain't going the injection route either 'cause I figured if I'm still able to ride the bike, that'd be good enough to be able to ride at least one thing....😲

Yes, that part is going to be interesting to see how it works out.  No "stirrings" yet, but they say at least a month before anything starts to happen.

I seriously want to be transparent, so if someone else goes through this they at least see what it was/is like for me.   :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Just so you know, it isn't all bad.  Today's experiment was fishing, and it went well.  The fishing wasn't that great- tried on the big lake (Lake Michigan) for Lake Trout, nothing.  Went through the channel into Lake Macatawa and nailed a couple of Freshwater Drum:

The more active I am, the more leakage.  Saturday I did WAY too much, and I was kind of a mess.  That led to a low-key day yesterday, despite a birthday party for my daughter (17).  Now it's time to rest some more.  I need to balance activity with rest/focus on PT, which actually is Kegel practice.

Took the bike for a short ride today (5 miles to a friends place and back).  Not ready for mileage yet.  ABout halfway I was sliding to side saddle a bit.  The ride home was better, but she's gonna be parked for a bit yet.

Healing continues well- I worked on the farm 3 half-days this week.  It was good.  Friday I fished.

Mornings are great- NO leakage overnight, VERY minimal in the morning.  However if I hit the bottle late there's lots of leakage.

No stirrings yet.

6 week appointment Wednesday.  My PSA is at ZERO, which was a huge answer ti prayer/hopes.  Hopefully it stays there- looks like I'll be on a 4 month PSA test cycle.  No stirrings yet, but that's the next target.  Medication and a "mechanical device" to increase blood flow.  The doc seemed to think things would be progressing better now that my healing is going so well.

Leakage isn't a factor other than a drop or two here and there in the evenings, and when I told my doc I was playing softball with no issues he was amazed at the progress, so that's good.  All restrictions are now off.

Took the bike for a short ride today (5 miles to a friends place and back).  Not ready for mileage yet.  ABout halfway I was sliding to side saddle a bit.  The ride home was better, but she's gonna be parked for a bit yet.

Healing continues well- I worked on the farm 3 half-days this week.  It was good.  Friday I fished.

Mornings are great- NO leakage overnight, VERY minimal in the morning.  However if I hit the bottle late there's lots of leakage.

No stirrings yet.

And equally important:  I'm back in the saddle baby!  I've put on about 70 miles this week, no problems.  We have a shorter trip planned to the UP at the end of August, and I am geeked.

Honestly I couldn't be happier with the progress at this point.  This will probably be my last post on this topic with an update unless somting
"pops up".   :bigok:
