Look at this picture –
This picture was taken after my last surgery back in February upon returning to my room from recovery. I look happy even though I have a huge catheter inserted into my bladder via my male part! Little did I know, two days later the catheter would be removed by Dr. F. without compassion and with such power and force that I thought I had died. Yes, this is what I get to look forward to again.
Today is surgery day and when this post is published via a schedule I will be in surgery. If all goes as it did with my past surgery, it should take a couple of hours and after a brief stay in the hospital for several more hours, I should be able to go home sometime this afternoon. I will then enjoy having a catheter for a couple of days at which time I know what to expect – I know this time.
I know this time what to expect regarding the surgery.
I know this time what to expect after surgery and during my recovery at home.
I know this time what to expect when Dr. F. will pull the catheter out.
I know this time what to expect the following few days after the catheter is extracted.
It does not make it any easier this time even though I know this time what to expect. I do not look forward to the pain and discomfort that I will experience. I know, I know; I am not the only one to endure this and yes there are many people going through much worse than me. Can I be honest? What man enjoys having large medical instruments shoved in his penis? I mean really, I do not look forward to it. Okay, sorry for being so personal, but it is the truth.
Now, I know in about a week, the pain will be much less and the body will be getting back to some normalcy. I am unsure what that normalcy will be; because with the past surgery, my normalcy changed and will most likely change again after this surgery.
But wait, I forgot, there is the stent and the eventual removal of it. How do they possibly remove the stent without surgery? Oh I know, I already researched it, you got it!
Another medical instrument shoved in the penis!
I know this time!
