New to site and just wanted to let people know how i am doing 6 days after the procedure.
Before having procedure i was looking all over the internet for patient testimonials and ended up on this site. I can honestly say that i was hesitant after reading some of the post on individual complications. a gentlemen suggested that probably all the success stories arent reporting their experiences because they are satisfied and moved on with their lives. i think that is probably somewhat true.
I decided to have the procedure and am now into my sixth day. I had the Foley Catheter removed today. The anxiety that I had about the removal was the fear I would be plugged up and a catheter would have to be reinserted. All was for not. The catheter came( much like taking a band aid off) out with no problem. Before removing the catheter they filled up my bladder with water to a point of urgency. Once the catheter was removed i voided into a plastic pan. This is done to make sure you are not plugged. There was a little stinging but not bad at all. This was in the morning and since then I have voided about every 1-2 hours with very little discomfort. My Doctor said to give it 2 weeks but I can actually see a difference now. I am to continue taking my flow max.
So far after day six i am happy i had it done. i will update as to progress and any questions about my experience i would be happy to answer.
