Swerd, when the catheter comes out curl your toes. It makes no sense but seems to help a little. And I hope your bladder recovers in days not weeks.\n\nTLS, it sounds like it went as well as it could. As an academic MD I went there as a patient for a consultation couple of years ago, a much bigger trip for me from Maryland. My issue was kidney stones and bone loss. They are also THE place for kidney stones which is why I passed up on closer centers. They are truly a level above anywhere I have seen which includes some of the top centers in the country. It looks like a great place to work but I know two things. One I am not smart enough to work there and two I'd go crazy there in winter. I hope you recover speedily and have a complete cure.
