Went n at 6:3 AM, with my roomate Steve as my designated driver. Was preped and IV inserted, My pastor came and prayed for me and met my dr. Dr. Kodama) The anisteologist said I'm slipping you a cocktail. -----
I awale about 90 minutes later, Dr. Kodama says it went perfect and was a lap. Thank god it was a lap. He said if all goes well I'll be out in an 2 hours.
Well they wanted me to urinate before leaving. Here the problem occurs, I could not void. They sent me to a room. Hooked up two more bags of fluid, still no luck. Around 3 PM they drained my bladder with a catheter (OUCH). Then about 30 minutes after the drain, it started working again. They said when I could produce 30cc an hour, I could go. By 6 PM resident dr came by examined me and ordered my release. Got home at 7PM. Tried to sleep but due to fluid overload had to void every 30 minutes till 5AM the next day. A horrible night. A bit sore but taking no narcotics, perceset was given but dont need it. I was surprised that no Antibiotic
Today I have had 2 two hour naps and many calls from frends and family. Throat is sore from antisetic. Will take bandages off tomorrow morning. Roomate has two ictures the dr gave hin, I have yet to look at them.
