So Glad everything went OK. Your experience was normal.... just a little issue getting the tube through the prostate.
But this got me to remembering something...... After surgery for the neo bladder I was able to stand the pain of the surgery quite well. I was quick to get off pain meds and found I could tolerate the major pain of surgery quite well.
BUT! I lost my mind when the nurses came in and poked little needles in my arm for "blood tests" after they took out the central line. Think of it! I could stand the pain of surgery but I wimped out every time they came in to give me a shot or take a blood sample. When I mentioned this to them, they thought it was great fun that the elephant was afraid of the mouse!
Glad you found out you worried for nothing. Reality is sometimes safer than fiction.

Light a man ON fire and he's warm forever.

We knew you could do it. Congratulations on a good medical procedure. Sorry the outcome made you an offical member of the BC Club, but now you know the problem and how to tackle it. Best of luck ahead.
