I was fortunate to have the catheter in for 2 nights, so I had really good sleep along with with good pain relief. Boo hoo they took it out yesterday after breakfast! I then had a shower and a physio session using crutches! Ok so far after lunch more physio on crutches, umpteen trips to the loo and back! Because of an overactive bladder I sometimes go every hour, I was prescribed meds called Betmiga 3 months ago and I had persevered with taking them despite side affects of headaches, dry mouth and constipation. Can honestly say that there has been no significant difference in the frequency of urination, so I didn’t take them from the day I was admitted because the meds you get as an in patient cause constipation as well. Consequently my knee has suffered for the first time as I was so tired, no afternoon nap, and up and down through the night. I had to have assistance to get to the loo through the night because it was so painful and stiff and I was exhausted. I felt very sorry for myself especially when you are being told you are not lifting your foot correctly, er yes I know I’m not and if I could I would thank you! Rant over haha!
