Bladder Nick

I, unfortunately, experienced a bladder nick during my abdominal hysterectomy. This has required a cath. for the next 6 to 12 weeks. (This was especially upsetting with a vacation planned in July). Any suggestions on wearing a cath. at the pool would be helpful !!!!

Although I am insured, my out of pocket expenses are much higher than anticipated due to the surgury for the bladder repair.

Thank you,

Hi,

Sorry to hear your a fistula sister. This seems to happen too much....

I'm over 1300 dollars in out of pocket expenses from co payments to buying cath supplies at Walgreens, etc.

I also lost all my income for the year because I had a planned hyst. in Nov.2002 so I would be ready to work my job as a registered tax preparer....well as you can read from my signature line I had to have the repair in Feb. 2003 and had 2 cath's for another 4 weeks....

Sorry to be the bearing of bad news.....this is NOT fair as we didn't plan for this to happen. I'm still not completely 100% and still on a lot of meds including pain meds.

As far as wearing a cath with a bathing suit...hmmmm not unless you want the urine bag to show....I actually would walk into the hospital during different "ordeals" with the big night time bag as I didn't care after 5 months of being cath'd....

Sorry to hear of your problems. We are here to help you. Are the doctors talking about an operation to fix the nick/hole???

We are here for you.
