Last Surgery Done

Just had my last surgery this morning and was blessed with a cute nurse. Of course if anyone has ever had a stent taken out of there groan, it is not the best process in the world. The doc said it is kinda like urinating backwards. What the he11 does that mean? I have never pissed backwards.

He took it out and showed it to me. I should have taken a picture and could not believe how big it was. It was color blue which happened to be my favorite color. No wonder that thing hurt like heck.

I immediatly felt better and walked right out. I decided to drive a route I have been mapping out from my work to a new farmers market in town and about half way through it, surging pain started in my kidneys. I could not sit down or focus really. I had to get home, take some pain meds and lay down. It hurt so much that I had no clue what to do. But the meds kicked in and so far, I feel better.

I am not sure what anything means but I hope I am closer in getting back on the bike.

What irritates me is that I asked for a cat scan before the surgery on Tuesday to make sure the doc could see all the stones but they brushed me off so I decided to order one and will plan on getting one next week. I hope they are all gone.

It probably hurt because you just had a big ol' stent taken out. Hope this is it for the stones! Ever get any hint of what they might be from?

Enjoy the meds and take care.

Waiting for the doc to get back the info.

I cannot wait until the kidney is healed so I can get off the pain meds. Everyone says "dont get addicted". No ****.

Chef, I hope you get well soon.

This has got to be killing you. I remember reading your posts in Jan and Feb when we were both riding in the artic tundra! Your progress and rides have been very motivating, to say the least. Now your missing the prime cycling season....I am sure you are not thrilled about it either. I know you'll jump right back into it, when your are ready.

I just feel really bad for you!! I hope this is your last surgery and you riding again soon!

Glad to hear things are progressing, but sorry to hear of the pain. Pain pills are good, though. They let you relax so your body can heal, as long as they're used right. You sound like the type of guy who will proceed with caution, but do what you have to do. You'll be fine. Bet you're 10x better in the morning.

Cute nurses are a HUGE help....usually. Through my cancer treatment, I had awesome nurses. Some cuter than others, some nicer than others, some more caring. But they all made my lengthy stays a little less miserable....even though they were trying to kill me with the chemo! My vasectomy, on the other hand, was a different story. Had one of the HOTTEST nurses I've ever seen. VERY wrong for the doc to do that to a guy. JUST WRONG!!!!

Yuppers, missing it a lot. Last few weeks, I have been thinking of all the cold and wet weather I have commuted in and couldnt wait til nicer weather. Now it is here and I am stuck inside. Its ok though I suppose. Not fun with you have to piss every 1-2 miles and it is all blood.

I did commute in this morning to work which felt GREAT. No pain. I have a killer headach today so I hope I can commute home. We will see.

Lol, I was feeling that way yesterday. A hot nurse and me feeling violated...and not in the way I wish it was!

Am pulling for you Sir! One step at a time, get healed, then deal with no more pain meds. If concerned, call your Doctor, and keep bugging them til you get answers you understand

No one wanted to test my blood after multiple rounds of multiple PEs - they just wanted to put me on blood thinners for life. I wanted testing so we'd know - as blood thinners do not mix well with NSAIDs (which I need rather badly) - well, testing proved I have a genetic disorder causing my blood to create clots, so I am on blood thinners for life, and regular INR testing also for life. But at least I *KNOW* why...
