After several days of anxiety the day finally came. Stress levels were elevated at the mere thought of what was gonna happen, but have come through to the other side...
The procedure was more uncomfortable than painful.... initially.
The gel did it's job and the pipe went in... The worst part was when the bladder was filled with water.... bang goes your dignity ! You have a natural urge to pee, but know that you cannot - fight the pain as in a few minutes it'll be over.
The doc then decided to show me my insides by hooking up the camera to some monitors... At this stage I needed the thing out of me... and then in 2 minutes it was over and I was asked to release into a bowl
Will post how my recovery is coming on
I could not do this based on the 5 people watching, they left and I went....
After that I was taken back to my room and once comfortable would be discharged
... and then the anaesthetic started to wear off>
Peeing now is incredibly painful, worst pain I have ever experienced... Apparently this will go down - right now I am frightened to even go.
That said, it's only been 4 hours, the damn thing is over, i'm hoping 24 hours of pain and I can get on with life.
At the end of the day - these things need to be done, bite the bullet as tomorrow is another day.
