Suprapubic Catheter finally in place: I went in to hospital yesterday at 12.50pm and was given a general anesthetic at 1.30pm. Arrived in recover and woke at 3.30pm, then I was wheeled back to my room at put into bed at 4.30pm; I was given a ham sandwich, yogurt and coffee. The Surgeon came in said all went well but glad he did the operation under X-Ray because my bladder wasn’t quite where it normally should be; instead of being on the left it was central and lower than normal… but no problems, Suprapubic Catheter inserted ok- He did have to use a number 5 drill bit to get through all the fat 🙂 Not really … he didn’t.

I asked if the whole would shrink as I lost more weight, he just smiled at that question but said he had put dissolvable stitches in the wound, and a dressing was put around the catheter, he told me not to get the dressing wet, or clean or redress the wound for about three days.

The compression stockings they gave me (don’t match any outfit I’ve got but never mind) should stay on for a week, to avoid DVT  (deep vein thrombosis) then the pharmaceutical guy came in to give me a weeks supply of antibiotics and the nurse gave me some extra dressings. I was dressed by my husband and then was very pleased to hear that I was to be discharged because the procedure went well with no complication.

I thanking all the nurses as I left the hospital… We got home at 7.15pm and enjoyed my freshly cooked salmon salad my darling husband then cooked for me. I slept really well considering what I went through, but I think getting rid of that blessed hanging Indwelling catheter made a huge difference – now all i have to do is get use to the new routine.

Day one with new Suprapubic catheter: I gingerly took a look under the bedclothes to make sure nothing had happened overnight and to my great relief everything was still in place no leakage, night bag still upright and connected. It is a very strange colour though colour of rosé wine, (not for drinking of course it must just be blood and medication) it does make you think what’s in rosé wine though! No not really that’s just my sense of humour or maybe still the effects of the general anesthetic.

Anyway I had to work out how to get to the bathroom still attached to the night drainage bag (decided to keep attached till I worked out how to ware the hip bag) so put the night bag on my tray on my Zimmer frame and taking it easy and being careful not to slip with my new support stockings on; managed to empty it in the toilet and sat carefully down and placed bag on its frame on the floor, got up carefully holding on to the support rail by the toilet, the sink and got to my feet and put the night bag back on the Zimmer frame and went and sat on the bed.

With hubby’s help put the Velcro strap around my waist and attached the hip bag to the catheter, got dressed and went downstairs with the help of “Mario” my friendly stair lift (those that know me are aware I have to give my equipment names) it was a real joy “something you may find a little strange” to not have something sticking into me when I sit down, simple things ah!

Little leakage from my urethra when I bent over ,called the nurse (which she told me to do if I was concerned about anything) she said that as my urethra had not been sealed up completely, a little leakage might happen, this was quite normal as the Urologist would have inserted the catheter as lower down in my bladder as he could, but would not stop leakage happening completely, she suggested I just wear a pad just incase. She reassured me that everything was fine. I still would highly recommend anyone thinking of up grading to a Suprapubic, go for it hopefully you will have the same great experience I have had.

Electric Bed coming Friday.

    I simply needed to thank you very much all over again. I do not know the things that I would have achieved without the tips and hints shown by you over this industry. It seemed to be the horrifying dilemma for me personally, but noticing the very specialised avenue you handled it forced me to weep with joy. I’m just grateful for the work and as well , sincerely hope you realize what a powerful job you have been putting in teaching the rest thru your webpage. I am certain you’ve never got to know all of us.

    I would like to show my thanks to this writer for rescuing me from this scenario. Because of surfing through the the net and meeting tricks which were not beneficial, I assumed my life was gone. Being alive without the presence of approaches to the problems you have solved as a result of your good post is a crucial case, as well as the ones which could have in a negative way affected my career if I had not encountered your blog. Your actual understanding and kindness in dealing with every part was very useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not discovered such a step like this. I’m able to at this point relish my future. Thanks very much for the reliable and amazing guide. I won’t think twice to recommend your blog to any individual who should receive support about this topic.

    I precisely wished to thank you so much once again. I’m not certain the things that I could possibly have implemented without the entire information revealed by you regarding such concern. It seemed to be a very traumatic difficulty in my opinion, but seeing a specialised form you dealt with that took me to cry for gladness. I’m just happy for this assistance as well as have high hopes you are aware of a powerful job you were accomplishing training most people all through your website. I’m certain you haven’t met all of us.
