Living With A Urinary Catheter › Forums › General Discussion › Forum Rules › Reply To: Forum Rules
First thanks so much for this site. Truly awesome I found it before a urthetralplasty surgery and started following. I really didn’t want much info initially I was nervous enough with the complex nature of the stricture. Anyway at home resting after a 4 day hospital stay… I will have catheter for a 3 weeks up from the original projected 2 weeks. Funny it is the least problematic they have given me valium after a previous experience with a foley and I have been sleeping hard along with pain killers. Two questions for you and forum 1) keep in mind things are still tender/fresh from surgery anything that I can do to speed up/lessen testicle pain/scrotium healing. I had my first night of truly amazing pain last night more than I could tolerate to sleep and didn’t get much rest. 2) bowel movments. Still none. I have started eating more solids, but they really went to town on my mouth for material so I was getting food caught everywhere. I have stol softeners, but any foods you might suggest or things to do. I feel like the pressure on the testies and scrotium is directly connected. I am passing loads of gas and feel relief when I do. Many thanks.
