I had my post-op appointment today, and everything went great. My flow was 17 ml/sec with no straining, and I had 14ml left in my bladder afterward, which is basically nothing. She said the fact that my bladder went from needing to be emptied every 1-2 hours, to now being 4-5 hours means that it’s nearly recovered from the suprapubic already.
The incisions looked good too, no sign of infection. There’s still a small amount of drainage, but she said that’s normal, and should disappear soon.
Greg, I hope you get some answers from the urologist when you see them. You wouldn’t think it would be difficult to see if there’s something in the way. One way of seeing if it’s the catheter is to gently pull on the tube until it won’t move anymore. If the balloon is against the bladder wall that means it’s not at the bottom where the urethral opening is.
