Living With A Urinary Catheter › Forums › General Discussion › Thank You for This Site! › Reply To: Thank You for This Site!
I am 5 weeks post end to end. My recovery was fine. I had some nerve damage from the positioning I was in. But other than that very little pain. I took the oxy as prescribed for the first 5 days. And then for a few more days at night. To be honest I didn’t need it I bet.
The catheter was annoying and caused the most problems. The surgeon routed mine up to my belly and I just kept it that way for the 31 days I had a cath.
Day 2 of recovery I went to my neighbors for lunch. By week two I drove once. By week three I was driving every day I bet and walking with the dog and wife at night. Week 4 I was sitting upright again.
Week 5 now I am back at work, no issues except for the lunch room chairs. I get a twinge of pain every now and then. I had my first non-catheter erection last night and that was tight and painful, I am sure it will get better.
