Getting very nervous

My surgery is scheduled for oct 21 and the biggest thing that is making me scared is being able to pee! I dont want a catherer. The Dr said that if i can pee i can go home same day! Why am i so scared about this?

Re: Getting very nervous

Having a catheter is not a bad as you imagine. They need to have it in during surgery to keep you bladder drained so they can see for the surgery. If you are like me, you will feel it when you wake up, but it will not be a big deal. When they took mine out (I was in the hospital for 4 days, so I had it removed the day after surgery) they just said take a few deep breaths, and then I felt a slight pinch and out it came. No problem.

I am sure things will go fine. Good luck.

Re: Getting very nervous

For me too, the catheter was not a big deal, in fact, I was grateful to have it until 6am the next morning because I didn't have to worry about getting out of bed to go to the bathroom. Also I had no problem going on my own after it was removed. My only problem was that I had to go within an hour after they removed it and it was shift change for the nurses and it took a bit to get help. But it wasn't that bad coming out...a little pinch then over in a flash!

Re: Getting very nervous

Thank You guys for the words or encouragement! I'm not sure why I am so worried about this? So I am just trying not to think about it and getting things done before Friday.
Again Thank You!

Re: Getting very nervous

I was one of the ones that couldn't feel a thing even though I knew it was there. No pinch either when it came out the next morning. The nurse told me she was going to pull it out and before I knew it or could feel it, it was out. I was happy to have it there so I didn't have to get out of bed just like Sammer for the evening and night after surgery..
