It’s out although a little sore, everything works YAY This morning, UK time I had a distant nurse come around to take out the Catheter I had in for the last 33 long days. It does seem much longer than 33 days! I was looking forward to it being taken out but wasn’t looking forward to any pain. I don’t do pain of any sort. The catheter for those of you don’t know is held in your bladder by a balloon which is filled with fluid so that it doesn’t come out, although it can deflate for one reason or another, thankfully mine didn’t, it stayed in place. After the balloon is deflated then the nurse or ever is taking the catheter out can slip is out although the one I had in the balloon doesn’t go all the way down!! It was painful, to say the least, she stopped a few times, then I said just go for it, the next second it was out and was a relief it was out. 5 hours later the nurse came back to see how I was getting on and if I had managed to pee, which I had and she did a scan on my bladder which showed a little bit in but nothing to worry about. She's back again on Friday and fingers crossed everything is still working normally. I'm looking forward to a good night's sleep tonight.

That sounds so awful the pain of having it pulled out Was it awful to urinate after? When I had a scope done to see why I got chronic UTIs it hurt but urinating after was so much worse I almost screamed out loud but was able to catch myself.
