Well, Friday evening and Saturday were pretty painful for me. I had to use Dilauded and a heating pad and I was mostly laying around in pain even with the dilauded(which is related to morphine and very strong). Today I am not in pain. I am SO looking forward to getting this stent out tomorrow and hopefully being pain free again. This has been a long hard recovery this time. I hope this is the last time, but I doubt it.
My husband, Greg, always comes with me to get the stent removed. I am always scared and he holds my hand. I hate that they do it awake. It is never as bad as I fear, but I still dread the actual procedure. The doctor inserts a cystoscope into my bladder and using the camera, finds the end of the stent and pulls it out. I wish they put me out for it.
2:30 tomorrow, only 24 more hours with this stent, thank God.
