    Hi Chantal;

    Thanks for your kind words, yes it is like nothing happen to me at all other then a bump in the road for like six months ..

    I am feeling a lot better today , I am still sore and stiff but that is part of the healing process..

    I know there were no interns in when I had the procedure done in 2001 but now he has two working with him it is good to know that others are learning this procedure as I know Dr. H will have to have some one replace him some day and I hope it is not for a long time he is such a wonderful doctor ..

    Debbie

    Hi Debbie,

    I'm so happy for you. Sounds so cool that you just kind of picked up from where you left off before the battery went. Like you, I've said it before but going through the surgery was well worth it. A few weeks of pain is no sweat compared to the daily bladder issues before. I wondered if they put you on the antibiotic- i see he did. I think your pain threshold is better than mine. i had been on tylenol #2 i think but they didn't help at all. Indomethacin was the magic pill for me but i didn't get groggy on it like the tylenol #2.

    You know what is crazy, I'm looking forward to the surgery more than the period of time when my neurostimulator battery dies and I'm waiting for a new one.

    Keep taking care of yourself. Deb, i don't know about you but to my knowledge, there were no interns who did the surgery- i never saw another doc except the anesthesiologist (there was an emergency so my surgery was delayed like 7hrs or so). Dr. H took some great care in the stitching. Early on, i got some compliments on my scar- they asked me if i had a plastic surgeon. As far as i know, it was just Dr. H but he made sure that i still had a sexy bum.

    Hi tacy99;

    He put me on Ratio-Lenoletec #3 codeine 30 mg, other words Tylenol with codeine which I am one not to take pain meds , I only used it if I really need them as I can tolerate the pain really good ...
    I am also on Cephalexin 500 mg

    Debbie I'm so happy you're home and everything is working great for you! Hope the pain passes quickly. What kind of pain management did they prescribe for you?

    Hi Sandra;

    I had my surgery done at Toronto Western Hospital , that is the only place in Toronto that does the InterStim Implant .

    Well I am just resting today and not doing much at all, still in lots of pain but just love that I can drink all that I want and not have to pee all the time ...
    That is so a wonderful blessing ...

    Also Leslie, yes I guess I am the an ole pro at this, having this over eight years , I could not live with out it and I don't mind having the surgery as of the wonderful success I have had with the InterStim ...even if this is my third surgery at that ....

    Debbie
