What a Night

Despite all the bravado about pain meds, and altered perceptions, and such last night proved worse than the first post-op night. Plenty good passing urine all day long, but starting in the evening when I'd pass I'd also spasm up my right side back, along the ureter to the kidney. There's a stent, a leetle tiny straw as it were, in that ureter to make sure things don't get backed up. Possibly also the reason for the spasms.

That, and the fact that while I've said what I went through is a 'minimally invasive surgery', because it is (working through a 1 centimeter sheath), which does involve making that itty bitty incision and then dilating it up, and stretching as well as otherwise insulting muscles which don't normally do what they were asked to do...

It's time limited. It will get better. But we went through 2/3rd's the plan for anti-spasmodics, and kept up with the percocet, and such. Still, big spasm when passing urine. I might also of been passing blood clots along with it.

Still looking at today being a go-home day; I'm not looking forward to a night like last while at home. On the other hand, it will be home, a more comfortable location than here. We'll see. There's at least one more round of the antibiotic wanted to be done, and that's not due until 18:00 like yesterday.

Meanwhile, driving the Intarwebz while on Percocet, and looking to get up in a wee bit for wash-up and such. All just general stuff to feel more nearly human, as opposed to wrung out protoplasm.
