Well, I feel like a million dollars today! I’m a pain level of 3 out of 10! Which is amazing! I am so happy about that! I went to see my pain doctor today. I talked to him about the lack of pain I’ve been in since November, and about the neobladder surgery I’m hoping for. I told him I see my urologist next week and will be talking to him about when the surgery will be scheduled for. My pain doctor told me that this surgery will be a good thing for me. He thinks I’m ready for this, and since I’m in minimal amount of pain now that I should be getting the surgery soon. He wants to make sure that the palliative pain clinic is involved with my post-op care so that I’m as comfortable as possible. It’s going to be a really hard recovery for me so, the more help I can get the better! So today was very encouraging. I’m glad at the results of today. I’m going to be seeing my urologist on the 24th so we’ll find out when exactly the surgery will be planned for then. I’m hoping for soon, and I would just like to get rid of my urostomy bag. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, my bag has helped me, and now I’m ready for the next step. So bring on surgery number 14 and lets get it done and over with. Hopefully this will be my final surgery.
