This has been a really hard day today. Nearly two weeks after the prostate removal my bladder decided to block. I was in massive pain. It felt like I wanted to pee but simply couldn’t. I rang 111 and got referred to St Austell Hospital. At the hospital they refitted a catheter and out came some wee. Not very much though. Re thought my drinking pattern over the last 18 hours and realised I hadn’t drunk much. I did have a bladder infection though and was prescribed antibiotics. Hopefully that will relieve some of the pain. For the rest of the day I have been downing copious amounts of fluid and weeing quite happily. Very painful though.
To all folks about to have a prostate removal please make sure you drink plenty of fluids after the operation. Stay hydrated.
