I was really hoping the urostomy was going to work. I was feeling good for about a month and a half. Now the pain is coming back. I was put on a new muscle relaxer. It is kind of working, but it’s making me very tired, and nauseas. I go to the doctor’s on Thursday, so I’m hoping to get a new muscle relaxer, hopefully. I’ve been sleeping a lot! I get 10-12 hours of sleep a night, and take at least a 2-3 hour nap during the day. I’m normally not up for more then 5 hours before I fall asleep again! So we’ll see what happens. On my last visit to the doctor (4 weeks ago), he thought the pain I was feeling was from the outside of my bladder, which is a good thing. He did a pelvic exam and didn’t have to peel me off of the ceiling after it, which is a really good thing! I turned the battery back on again. They have done some things to redo the settings. The second setting did not work for me at all. So we’ll see what the third setting does.

I got Hollister products back finally, so my skin is starting to clear up around the stoma. I tried the tapeless this time and it’s not sticking as well as the ones with tape. I’m getting 3 maybe 4 days use out of them. I do have enough to change every 3 days which is really good. So I guess I’ll see what happens on Thursday, and hopefully after that, I won’t be sleeping as much as I am now!
