The more you know 3, lucky me

Thanks to yesterday's torture procedure*, I'm still peeing fire and razor blades. Thank goodness the treatment for having a painful bladder and urethra is to jam large things into the same small, inflamed, excruciatingly painful area that you are asking the doctor to fix. Modern medicine is awesome.

I'm taking a medicine called Prosed, which is supposed to be a pain reliever designed for use when one does horrific things to one's bladder and related areas. It's hard to tell if it's working on account of the astonishing  amounts of pain I'm in when I urinate. Oh, wait....

The best thing about the Prosed so far is that it turns your pee blue. This is hella-cool and much better than the holy-crap-you're-bleeding-to-death red/orange of the over-the-counter version. It's only slightly blue, though, which is a little disappointing. When I read the package insert, I was hoping for Robin's egg blue, or maybe navy. Navy would have been outstanding.

I just called the doctor's office to confirm that fire-pee is still an expected side effect at this point of the game. The nurse asked me if I was seeing "Lots of blood." I had no idea that "lots of blood" was an option. Thankfully, I'm lots-of-blood-free, so I'm told to call back if I'm still peeing jalape├▒os tomorrow. I'll keep you posted.

  1. LOL...that is awful!! I hate fire and the idea of "Lots of blood," made me swoon. Hope you start to feel better!

  2. I love that you said, "LOL...that is awful!" That's EXACTLY the feeling I'm going for! :)

  3. I think I might have said I was seeing lots of blood to get lots of vicodin. I hope you feel better soon!

  4. I was afraid that they'd ask me to come in for another exam, and that was just WAAYYYYY too terrifying. I'm feeling much better now, thank you!
