WARNING: explicit content.
One of the problems with prostate removal is that is, at least at first, makes you incontinent. The day I came home from the hospital I basically dripped all day. I have to wear pads (the same material combination as disposable diapers).
But somehow when I went to bed, my bladder filled and I had to get up to use the bathroom — twice during the night.
Now, day by day, it seems to be getting better. It is worst when I stand, better when I sit and better still when I sort of slouch, e.g. while watching TV.
I’m still at home recovering. Next week I return to the office. It’s going to be a nuisance but I guess I’ll be able to handle it. We will see.
(Note: I call this part 1 because I expect to have more to say–and presumably progress to report–as time goes by.)
