I apologize going in to those that have this disease and situations far worse than I. I am genuinely lucky to be on the soft side of this disease, but being the whiny little boy I am, I need to vent.
I had my eighth cysto this morning, and it couldn't have been more unpleasant. To begin with, the IV nurse missed a huge vein on my left hand, then had to redo it on the right hand. Not a big deal, but unpleasant.
Then, when I came to in recovery, it was like a steak knife was stuck in my gut. My nurse told me I had a catheter in that would need to stay in till next morning. I said not going to happen if this is the source of my pain. Turns out the Uro did some "cleaning" of some scar tissue and I was also bleeding like a woman on her period. The nurse said maybe it would help if she hooked up the cath bag. Maybe? At that point I realized I was wet, from bleeding. So what next?
The Uro came into recovery and said I needed to stay cathed if I could tolerate it. Then came a delauded suppository, three IV injections of versed, and continued and worsoning pain.
