I had my Robotic procedure on Friday at Kaiser LA. It was done by Dr Maynes from Riverside where I live. I must say I am amazed. 3 days after and I am on no pain meds! My urine is clear and plentiful. I've had 3 easy bowel movements and I am walking 30 min 3 times a day... up hills and although I have a little soreness in my belly from the healing of my incisions... I feel great. I am doing lots of kegels and except for a little drooling of some blood at the tip of my penis, but no other issues until something weird an hour ago.
I was taking a bowel movement and I felt like urine was coming down my ureter, around and past my cath. I actually passed some urine... it was clear and I could stop and start it just like when I peed before surgery... but should I have urine getting past the cath that way? It wasn't a lot, but it was urine and it wasn't mixed with blood or anything and now I am filling my cath bag and nothing more is leaking thru the end of my penis. Is this what happens when you "bare down" to go BM's or what? I emailed my Dr. but don't expect an answer until tomorrow.
It feels strange to talk about some of this stuff, but I am glad to have people who have "been there and done that" to ask. I have learned a lot reading posts on this board. Thanks for your advise in advance!
