Surgery tomorrow, 10-11-18

Post by Steverino » Wed Oct 10, 2018 6:40 pm

Well gentlemen, tomorrow is the day. I'm sure you remember my various past posts about kidney stones, bladder stones, etc. The surgery I'm having should clear up all the problems I currently have. They will be doing a cystolitholapaxy to clean out the bladder stones, and a TURP to reduce the size of my prostate so it no longer obstructs my urethra. Total for both surgeries should be around 2 hours. I would appreciate your prayers for me, the procedures (the efficacy thereof), the surgeon (my urologist) and the support staff. This is a routine procedure but anytime somebody's going to be doing work inside of me, I want it right.

Surgery is scheduled to begin around 7 a.m.

I will be in the hospital for two to three days, until my urine runs clear, then I'll be at home for at least a week. I am hoping my doctor will release me back to work as soon after that week as possible. I've got plenty to do at home but work is more pressing.

Thanks in advance for your prayers and good wishes.
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

As I always say: "it's only a routine surgery when it's happening to someone else".

Praying for you Steve.

Well, I wish I had a better update for you. Everything went fine, as far as we got. My urologist removed about 60 bladder stones and had to stop due to the type of equipment available. He was not able to see the rest of the stones because the probe was not flexible enough. He will be getting a different probe to finish up with. And nothing was done to the prostate yet so we still have that to look forward to. I go in Monday to discuss next steps and the time frame for those steps. I know it will be at least two weeks hence as my doctor will be out of town. I'll try to post another update when I find out anything of substance. Thanks again for your prayers.
