My appointment was this morning. I had general anesthesia so I did not feel a thing. In the recovery room, they brought me some beverages and cookies.
I had to pass urine before I could be released. After about 1 hour, I tried to go. My stream was slow and weak with many starts and stops. It took several minutes and was uncomfortable. I managed to pass about 3 or 4 oz. There was a small amount of blood in it which I heard was normal. The discomfort was familiar since I had a catheter and cystocope before. They gave me a prescription of vicodin for pain (as needed) and cipro to guard against infection.
I ate a normal lunch (no feelings of nausea) and started drinking water. I was home for about an hour before I tried to urniate. There was a few drops of red urine when I started but it cleared up. Again I had a weak stream with many starts and stops. The discomfort was the same as in the hospital. About that time I noticed a slight burning sensation in the perineum area, so I took a vicodin as a precaution.
I conitnued to drink a lot of water. I had the urge to urinate about every 45 min to 1 hr, I passed a few small blood clots (thin and less than 1/4" long) and there were a few drop of red at the end. I remained alert enough to check my email and was relatively pain free all afternoon.
I ate a normal dinner and continued to drink a lot of water. By evening, my urine was clear and clot free. It still is uncomfortable, but I expect it will be lessened in a day or two. I suspect the frequent/ sudden urge to urinate, the low flow and starts and stops will continue for a while. Since I am already on Rapiflo, I hope this will at least be manageable.
I spent the rest of the evening relaxing and watching TV. I plan to take another vicodin at bedtime.
