Over the next few weeks, I intend to chronicle here my experience following my PVP surgery. I will attempt to as brief as possible. I have heard so many horrible stories and warnings from so many men, that I thought I would relay my experience as it happens for those of you who might be planning your own PVP.
Had to be at hospital 0900 today. Prep was minimal. first step was to strip down to nothing and remove a wedding band that is now smaller than my knuckle. Tests for blood sugar (I'm diabetic), blood pressure, and insert IV which took 4 tries.
A visit from the anestesiologist, and then my urologist. I asked him if I could give him some words of encouragement and he said sure. I said, "Brian, don't f*ck up my dick"! He gave me a hearty laugh.
surgery was scheduled for 1200 and by 12-7 they wheeled me out of prep room towards OR, but I don't think I ever saw it.
I woke up at1445. Groggy as hell and with strong discomfort inside the end of my penis.with catheter inserted. I got some pain killers, antibiotics, and anti-bladder spasm meds as well as some coaching on emptying the bag.
The nurse also secured the cath line to my inner thigh so that a tug on the main line wouldn't pull on the line into the penis. There is not enough lead there and sitting on toilet promotes a pull of it's own. Can't adjust it because there is a hard plastic connector in the line right there; so no alternative but to leave it be.
Was in the car at 1700 to go home just in time for horrific Atlanta traffic and took 1.5 hours to go 25 miles.
It's 2100 now and am getting used to the feeling of the cath in my trouser worm. It's very uncomfortable but sensation pain has gone from about a 5 to a 2 or 3. Bag has been emptied once but needs to be done again before I turn it. Ate some dinner, a small pasta with broth and an egg around 1930. Trying to drink plenty of water as advised.
I feel no pain whatsoever except for the point of insertion of the cath. That is having a very calming effect on me, but, my dick does hurt.
Cath out Friday.
Report back tomorrow.
