I have just spent an interesting week in hospital, with a 3 way cathereter fitted!!
I got admitted with blood and clots in urine, which went on unabated from early hours of sat morn until the following friday, at which time I had a cystoscopy under general anasthetic. Walking and moving around with a foley catheter for a week is not the best way to spend time I can assure you! I also had a ct scan, ultra sound and xray.
Of course I was demented with the stress and worry of the possibility that my cancer may have returned, I have no need to try and describe what it has been like, you all know.
They repaired the blood vessel that caused the bleeding, and also took 2 biopsies from a redenned area, although they are almost positive that the reddenned area has been caused by the balloons from the catheter, they have to make sure.
So there we are ladies, Radiotherapy the gift that keeps on giving!
