Dr.Bragg said earlier today that when the residents came by tomorrow they would likely say I was going home tomorrow (sun) but that I should correct them and tell them she looked at their notes and the earliest she plans to do is mon. Given ive yet to be able to pee on my own (also very similar to last May's surgery) and pain is so wildly up and down (treating with multi-med approach including combo IV and oral meds. I am glad she is being cautious and would rather make sure there are no side effects first from the laminectomy. Hopefully now that I am off of laying flat as of 30mins ago and able to get up and walk to the bathroom with a nurse in another 10-15mins I will be able to return to peeing on my own and not having to be to straight-cathed by the nurses. I do not want to go home having to self-cath like last year nor do I want UTIs again as I had just been thinking the iter week it sseemed like we finally got on top of these recurring UTIs from last May's spine nerve injury issues. I have 1 year urodynamic testing in early June at would be so great to go in with a more working bladder and spine nerve signals even though I know itt isnt fully normal.
All for now, more soon.
