Watch Out for Floors Sneaking Up on You!

In 2013, the urologist who surgically placed my sub-pubic catheter in my body was scheduled to see me about the excessive scar tissue my body had building up from the surgery back three years earlier.  I thought the plan we had discussed was to electrically remove the scar tissue.  He is trying to convince me that my body was rejecting the site placement, so it needs to be moved to a different site.

Really do not want to go through with the surgery again, but it looks like there is no other option.  Woke up as he started cutting into my pubic area back in 2010.  Could not give me anymore anesthesia to put me back under, so I was awake and felt every cut he made.  Still hurt from the last surgery!  Nobody seems to take me seriously.  It is my body, after all.  Just want to stop hurting.

Looked like my only option was to have another surgery to close my old surgical site and get a new one.  Am I just crazy, or does this sound like a fools dream to be out of pain.   Hope they can keep the amount of staples to fewer than 7 like last time. The nurse couldn’t even get the number of staples right until I let her know she had missed one. Unfortunately, I could still feel it.

They seem to think you are not supposed to have any feelings down below.  That is so a medieval way of thinking.  I thought we had moved pass those thought centuries ago!

After he left the exam room, I was still laying on the table.  My husband went over to the other side of the room to throw trash away.  The next thing I new, I was face down on the exam room floor.  My husband started screaming for help.  Have no idea what I did to the floor to cause it to jump out and attack, breaking my glasses!  Have to keep an eye on those sneaky floors,
