Boxing Day Breakthrough

Yesterday (Christmas Day) was just bearable but more painful towards the evening.

However, since then, particularly since lunchtime I have been passing blood clots followed by more pain.

The last one was a massive clot but has been followed by a painfree period and a couple of reasonably normal pees.

I might get my paintbrush out this evening.


I'm just about to go out and visit my 17 month old grandson before he goes to bed.

Whoop-ee-do.

    1. Thanks Alan

      I got to see my grandson who was very clingy to me as he hadn't seen me for a few days.

      Found out on the way home that 30 minutes is the length of time before my bladder needs relief. Important to know that as I hope to do a 4 hour drive to York in February.

      I didn't get home in time to do anything sensible with a paintbrush.

    1. I've increased my time limit away from a toilet from circa 3 minutes to about 30 minutes. That's a great relief (pun intended).

  3. Jim,

    Good news. Let's hope that the situation remains positive, and that this is the precursor of better things.

    I hope that you gave a great time visiting your grandson.

    All the best,

    Bob

    1. What a relief it has been.

      The next milestone is to wake up to a bladder with nothing but urine in it.

  7. The physical basics really are basic to us. Every little improvement is a victory of sorts. May there be more and bigger ones ahead!

    1. The last clot was accompanied by an immediate loss of pain followed by a great sense of relief that something had changed for the better.

    1. I decided not to attempt any painting this evening in case that jinxed my recent good fortune.

      Consultant meeting is tomorrow afternoon.
