Aug. 8 and 9, 2014 Intrepid Age = 169-170 Days
I nearly had to go to the hospital last night. I'm not positive what happened, but I believe I was having bladder spasms. I was with a friend who is a nurse. She really wanted me to go to the hospital. But, I called my ObGyn and asked if I could just monitor my pain overnight and let her know if it go really bad.
It did get really bad. I would rate it at a 9 out of 10 for about 2 hours. I was panting and sweating, doubled over from the pain. My nurse friend was distressed at my unwillingness to go to the hospital. I said I would only go if I was unconscious.
I'm worn out today. But, I am feeling better. It took a long time for me to be able to sufficiently empty my bladder. It was a great relief when it happened.

:hug: take good care of you my friend. You do not deserve to suffer such pain. My heart aches for you.

Bladder spasms are uncomfortable and painful sometimes. I find they trigger me.  I know what you went through and I am happy to hear you are doing better today.


Take good care of you as alwayshug.gif

 So sorry you had to endure so much pain. I do hope the procedure Monday helps to solve this problem, despite its own miserable drawbacks.

 Take care.


I'm sorry you are going through this. I'm glad you're feeling better now. Take care my friend. Thinking of you.
