NHLFTR, er beast, dr. said no lifting anything until next dr visit December 27th. Sounds crazy but I fully understand why.
From here on, seriously, only purient interest folks should read.
I kind of feel like a science experiment; dr. did good job of advising what to expect post op. Bleeding (pure black urine) usually accompanies discharge of internal scaps in urine, with no bleeding at subsequent toilet trip. Also urinating consistently felt like passing acid for 6 weeks. A week ago I passed a fairly large scab with about 1 oz of blood. No big deal. Actually he said don't worry when you "... pass something that looks like a small marble and makes a pinging sound when it hits toilet bowl bottom..". Still looking forward to that experience. Sunday I changed HVAC filters in home's 12 foot ceiling using an 8 foot ladder. Strenuous. Lots of black urine about an hour later, and then no blood in urine at next toilet trip. I don't discuss this stuff, because it grosses out the wife.
Anxious to get back to lifting.
