There was a certain man who had a certain TURP urological operation to improve flow. That was back in early February, and it worked despite some ordeals with the catheter for a week. It was wonderful to experience normal flow, but it didn't last all that long. Two months later, as April broke, this man turned to his wife and reported that he seemed to have regressed to pre-surgery conditions.
Throughout April it got worse that ever, and the best he could manage was drops and dribbles. Over two days last weekend, he recorded every passing-of-his waters. He went 38 times in 48 hours, averaging once every 76 minutes, seldom over 100ml and often under.
He forwarded the information to his urologist who brought him in quickly for a cysto (cystoscope), and he watched the monitor as the probe went it. The opening to the bladder was so scarred and tiny that the probe could not penetrate.
Said doctor dilated the opening as best he could and booked a second TURP surgery for June 21: the first opening that he had. It's a long wait, but hopefully, the dilation will last until then. If not, it is surmised that this Cysto
Kid Oldtimer may get to enjoy yet another dilation event in the interim.

As I filled in the pre-surgery paperwork, on which one ticks off all of one's health concerns, most were negative, and I seemed to, otherwise, be very healthy. Go figure. Eh.
