April 7, 2009 Recovery

We have been discharged from Celebration and returned to our honeymoon "recovery" destination, The Rosen Shingle Creek.

I look forward to my room service meal, it will be my first real food in 60 hours. I don't look forward to some of the medical issues ahead; no bowel movement for 4-5 days (+ the previous 2), some possible swelling in the male anatomy based on the catheter, abdominal soreness at the incisions and overall discomfort from the catheter until friday morning. I'm mainly dreading the bladder spasms and flank pains, excruciating discomfort.

We are scheduled for the Cystogram @ 9:30 Friday morning followed by the catheter removal provide there are no leaks in the reconstruction of the bladder to the urethra.


  1. Hey Brett,

    Glad you made it through surgery okay. I wish you the very best in recovery, your at one of my favorite resorts in Orlando! Recovery in the coming weeks is no picnic, but you will get better quickly, make sure you walk as much as you can. Exercise helped speed my recovery.

    God Bless you and your family!
