Home from the hospital yesterday. Surgeon said procedure went well. Felt good to get some sleep in my own bed last night. Bags took a little getting used to but not having any issues. Have only been taking tylenol for pain so far, so I am happy about that. Will be going out for a little walk today and I am looking forward to the fresh air. I will have pathology results on Friday when I go to get the catheter out. Thanks again to all for your support. I will keep you posted.

Glad you are up and about. Take those first walks a little easy. Lots of short ones - don't want to strain anything today. Or tomorrow for that matter.

Will be watching for news.

You are making better progress than I did. But my cath gave me a lot of trouble.
May you have a speedy recovery.
