Day 3, things are getting better. Mouth pain is much better. I have stitches popping out in my mouth which have kept me still eating soft foods today. Energy levels are up today too.
Incision site does not hurt. Haven’t taken any pain pills today. (still no BM though)
During a previous 10 day catheterization after a DIVU, I had the catheter come out in the middle of the night. This is is always in the back of my mind. It keeps me from moving or walking much. It’s something I need to get used too as I have another 20 days to go until this thing comes out.
Surgeon used a Statlock device. It has worked very well. I have purchased a few extras from amazon. I have taken 2 showers and this thing is holding strong.
I few points to note, I have not had any testicular swelling at all and nocturnal erections have not been terribly painful. I asked the surgeon about the testicle swelling prior and he said his patients usually don’t have that problem.
