I have posted here before but I wish to report new developments.
I had the Green Light Laser Op on April 7. I was foleyed for the better part of a month because I still couldn't pee. Then on May 2 I had a heart attack that required surgery. Again i had to be foleyed because they had to concentrate on cardiac issues and put UR issues aside.
I still couldn't pee. It was found that my bladder muscles were very weak so I was taught CIC. My regimine is for 4X per day. For the first week I cathed using Speedicath by Coloplast.
Then I decided to try without cathing....Success! I find that when I urinate I pass 300-400 ml. (Sometimes 500 ml if I wait.) I cathed a few times after urinating to see what I was "leaving behind." It is between 50-60 ml which to me is OK. I have yet to report this development to my urologist because I want to be sure it's not a fluke.
Anyone else ever hear of a bladder "waking up" before?
