Tomorrow, about 9am i am going to top all that.
I am being circumcised.

I’ve had something called BXO, it’s not been very nice..

Warps mum is performing the operation.
Not sure if I should ask for it back after it’s been cut off.


Leave it for a tip :D

Still alive! I have a large packet (forgive the pun) of tramadol and a bandage around the old chap.

‘Can you remove the sting and leave the swelling’ went down quite well in the recovery room.

Left the foreskon behind, they’ve got some sort of charity auction comig up, I thought they could turn it on to a handbag or a pair of shoes.
I’m off for a sleep.

Yesterday I had a cystoscopy. Not something I’d ever recommend or want having done again.

Basically it’s inserting tubes up the urethra into the bladder.

Long story short: bladder is overactive and failing, not emptying properly and not giving much warning when I have to go. Options are tablets which make you impotent, or a life wearing pads and diapers from some point in the near future :shock:
Surgery is a last resort and not guaranteed to work ( and not available to me yet).

Not really looking forward to either option

Sorry to hear that , mate .

When I was in hospital with sepsis I had a catheter fitted for two and a half months , when I eventually got back to Skye the Nurse who had to remove it was one of our friends , to be fair she was very discreet with her use of a towel and it all came out painlessly , just a slight sensation of the tube being removed , thankfully I was out cold when they inserted it .

Had to go to the Doc's the other day to have a little warty thing on my forehead looked at , Jen was worried it could be skin cancer - the Doctor held this thing over it which froze the hell out of it , I have to admit to going ' Aaawwwww ' ! at the end - felt like about 100 ice creams being applied to my head all at once , left a little red mark for a few days but there's no sign of it now .

I had to have an endoscopy earlier in the year. Giant beastly tube shoved straight down your throat. By far the worst thing I've had done in hospital.

Good luck if you go for the surgery. I hope all goes well.

When they were trying to discover exactly what was wrong with me back in 2016 I was given an ultrasound , a catscan , an MRI scan then eventually an endoscopy - I'd had an endoscopy way back in 1983 and it was a bloody awful experience so I wasn't looking forward to having a tube stuck down my gullet again however I have to say it was nowhere near as bad as last time - I had to lay on my side then I was given some sort of valium injection , a circular object was put between my teeth in case I bit down on the tube and in it went - I experienced a bit of discomfort somewhere round the stomach area but on the whole it wasn't that bad . Last time I had it done the tube was put in through my nostril and I had to swallow the bloody thing , I failed a couple of times but just as they were giving up I managed to get it down - now that was horrible .

Endoscopys aren't so bad.Golden rule: always swallow it ,don't whatever you do allow them to put it in your nose,as some insist on trying.
Colonoscopy is supposedly worse,but I don't mind them (the pre clear out excercise is the worst bit) I've got one next month.
All this stuff is,for me, more bearable if they turn the screen so as I can see it, try it ,it's fascinating.

They have to get extra, expensive staff in if you are sedated to measure the drugs\your vital signs. You do it un sedated once, horrible experience.

I've had a colonoscopy & endoscopy. A colonoscopy is a summer holiday compared to an endoscopy.

I felt violated getting an endoscopy done. As others as said, I gagged for 15 minutes. The tube doesn't even go down properly either. You have to swallow about 15 times because it gets stuck. I hated every second of it. It messed my insides up for about 8 weeks as well.

A colonoscopy just feels like you're doing a reverse poo.
