Okay so 4 weeks from the procedure I want to update you guys:
As of last night I think I can definitely say my urine stream is better than pre-procedure. I only woke one time to pee last night and was actually surprised when I woke how long I had been asleep.
I am still passing blood at the beginning of my urine stream. Its hard to say how much, maybe a teaspoon? It starts out as all red blood and turns to urine sorta quickly. I have less burning in my urethra today and yesterday than I did when my Foley was removed Thursday.
Overall I was Foley cathed days 1-3, totally blocked night time of day 3 so back to a Foley days 4-9. On day 9 my stream was weak and dribbly, but I could pee... I began self-cathing on day 10 and that went well for 5 days until the catheters created a "false passage" (a hole in my prostate) which the catheter was hung up on, and I couldn't get into my bladder. Back to the Foley for 7 days longer. When the Foley was removed at 3 weeks and 3 days, my stream was decent, and its gotten better in the last 4.5 days.
Still bloody ejaculations. Low volume ejaculation as well. I don't think I have retrograde... but I wont know what is going on until I am fully healed.
I was going to update on the other thread, but its so long I cannot find my other posts. Ill try to maintain this one...
Feelings as of 4 weeks out:
Boston Scientific outright misleads with recovery time. Its not 2 weeks for most of us.
Self cathing is way better than Foley. I hated the foley so badly, it was torture.
Nobody prepared me for the blood that comes out of my penis, both urinating and ejaculating. Its a lot of blood, although it seems to be getting a bit better.
