Update to my previous missguided post on how to minimize Nocturia.

Well it was urinary retention and Balanitis that had me with a Foley catheter for the month of June.

Thank god my doctor pulled the in dwelling out and suggested I try self catheterization. Well I did that for a couple days and and really botched it up on the third try with lots of bleeding. So I started keeping a urinary log and stopped self catheterizing. Also the insurance was a PIA and it took over a month to get my unused supply of 100 Bard catheters.

Got a Urodynamics test and it suggested RASP or Aguablation. Had the Aguablation on Wednesday, home the next day. Quite of bit of blood in the Urine, do not pee as well as I did before the surgery. Say it takes weeks for the blood to clear and for you to reach the full benefit.

So I am limited to walks no heavy lifting for at least a month maybe 2.

Nice seeing my pretty wife carry the heavier packages from the store she is sweetheart.

In all the Aguablation information I found very little about what to expect from the procedure. The absensce of some of it is probably by design not to scare you off. And that may be a fair thing to do.

So what the surgeon never tells you is that while the surgery is precise and robotically controlled and wil protect your manhood features, since it is no heat, there is alot of bleeding. After the operation a speical catheter was installed that pumped saline water into my bladder and also drained to a 4000ml urinary bag. I was awake all night hour by hour watching for when the 2 gallon bag would be finished to notify the nurse for a new bag. I went thru 21 2 gallon saline bags before they removed the catheter 24 hours after the operation. All of the drainage was a bloody mess, but apparently looks worse than it is.

But no one mentions this in the pre surgery discussion. Then trying to pee afther the catheter is out is a challenge. You need to walk around, do squats, toe lifts, etc to try to get the juices flowing. They also do not tell you that you will be leaking blood thru the penis between attempts at urinating. You will be passing junks and bits of prostate tissue in the urine as it cleanses itself via urination. You need to get your bladder retention down to 300ml or less to be discharged, my first read was 700ml, so it took some work to get it down and get released without a foley catheter or another night in the hospital.

You are instructed to drink tons of water to aid this process, and also to add salt to the diet to match the high water intake. I have been having Ramin Broth and pretzels to help the salt level.

So I was using gauze pads to absorb the intermittent blood leakage after arriving home, by day three the leakagea had a just about stopped and the blood in urine had gone done from scary levels, but had a little spotting today and more blood in urine.

Sorry about all the gory details, but somone has to lay it out so you know what it is really going to be like rather than all the marketing hype befor the procedure.

Now what is truly amzing is that I really have no pain from the procedure at all, zero.

Only on day 5 after operation, so time will tell.
