7-18-12/Cystoscopy #2

The stent came out today via cystoscopy. It wasn’t as bad as last time because I knew what to expect.

 

As I’ve said before – it’s uncomfortable for the duration, but only really painful for 2-4 seconds. During that time it’s like someone is standing on your bladder.

 

This time it took 2+ minutes as a) the stent was difficult to find and b) I asked the doctor to look around to make sure the stent was the culprit regarding my peeing constantly.

 

He seemed to think it was and I already have seen a vast reduction in symptoms. However, he said it might take 3-4 days to clear up.

 

Now the big hurdle is Friday. Friday I go to Yale, learn more about BK Virus, and most importantly, have an ultrasound to make sure the kidney is draining. If it is I am going to celebrate. Otherwise, there will be more tests, procedures, etc. However, I am optimistic. I don’t know why, but I am.

    Sometimes, our instincts are more reliable than statistics. Personally, they have ALWAYS been more reliable for me! Definition of survivor:

    it’s my personal motto! If you are breathing, you’re doing just FINE.
