Thx mate, appreciate it
Are you sure reading the drivel on here is actually an aid to recovery?
I take it you have had an op on your back and, as a sufferer myself, you have my wholehearted sympathy and my good wishes for a full recovery.

I know what that is like! Lol.
Of course the drivel on here aids recovery - I have to say that, as I write most of it!!
Thank you for your good wishes
I'm back and madder than ever!
Once again, thank you all.....full story to follow shortly!
It was Monday night, and as I was due for surgery the following morning, I ate early to allow for the fasting period.
So it was to bed in reasonable time, in order to garner strength for the following day's tribulations. Up at 6pm was no great effort as my sleep was fitful at best.
Arrived in good time at the very pleasant little private hospital, and it was no time before I was wheeled into theatre, complete with stylish robe, mutton-cloth knickers and hat (you can't forget the hat, as I think they like to make you look as ridiculous as possible as they wheel you through the public area).
Woke up 2 hours later, and all seemed to have gone well. A quick scan revealed that all visible body parts were intact, though I did feel that my back had been experimented on by an apprentice engineering student with an angle-grinder.
It was now the fun began. I had last had a pee at about 8.30am so asked for "the bottle"....nothing happened. Staggered painfully to the loo....nothing either.
After an hour of abortive efforts, I asked for a catheter. Well the nurse did her best (she was probably a chimney sweep in a former life). For over half an hour, she shoved a variety of tubes of different sizes 12/14/16mm up (and down) before giving up.
A quick look at the clock showed it to be about 6.45pm, and the covering doctor was due at 7. Apparently there was only the one, as the doc on day coverage, had gone home.
At this stage, my bladder was fairly uncomfortable, but I could wait the 15 mins for the doc to arrive....but he didn't. At 7.30pm I asked them to find out what was happening. Word came back that he was delayed by traffic caused by an accident.
Finally, at 8pm he arrived, though to me it seemed an eternity....so armed with a fist full of catheters, he started the same thing. First a squirt of pain-killing gel, followed by the "chimney sweeping technique" with each of the sizes...this is a touch eye-watering (to put it mildly).
The result was the same....the (literally) bloody thing wouldn't go fully into the bladder.
They then called my surgeon who told them to give me enough Valium to knock out an Elephant, to see if that would relax things enough to allow something to pass through.....it didn't, so an ambulance was called to take me to a proper hospital, but that would take another hour...at this stage I was very uncomfortable (last pee - 8.30am); and the advice of "Try to relax" was not working!!
Part 2 will follow (in case anyone managed this far)
Oo.. Sorry for you, but I know from experience that these problems can arise especially with the male anatomy... It is a lot easier with women.... Good to see you back!
