How I got here from there.

TIMELINE

2-29

This whole thing start on March 1 or Feb 29 I had felt like I was coming down with a cold (a lot of fiends were sick) I had a lot of flu like symptoms with one major difference, I couldn’t urinate it was always just a dribble. All I could think was what the TV commercials kept saying “enlarged prostate” Take our medicine. At my age it made sense. After telling mom I had a cold or the flu for a week she convinced my sister to run me up to the emergency room. No insurance so she takes me to OU medical center. I told her the whole story while we were driving down. After we got there I learned a few things like the average person feels like they really need to urinate when their bladder has about 250cc of urine. After they attached a Foley catheter to me (i won’t get into the thought of what that nurse did) They emptied over 2000cc from me -ooooooo relief=

Mom took me back to the ER. They removed the foley-cath and I still couldn’t go on my own.

That same night we went back to the ER. They put it back in and said I should come see the urologist.

Went to the urology clinic a OU Med center for a cystourethoscopy. They gave me 5 self cath tubes and told me to keep my bladder emptied. They had me cath myself there to show me how. No other instructions.
