    One step closer -or- Orchiectomy

    I've recently (12th of August) had an orchiectomy. The surgery itself wasn't long, I was awake an hour later, and while pain was quite bad the first day, it got much better by evening. The next day, pain was minimal and easily managed with OTC meds. I had some smaller issues wearing diapers...

    What to expect before surgery

    To begin, I want to apologize if this question has already been asked. If it has, a link to that post would be helpful, and I can remove this one. I don't want a duplicate post here. Next week I will be getting surgery for a work-related injury, very minor, not very invasive. Now, I have light...

    Diaper vs Catherization

    I tried to do a search on this but did not find anything. Catherization seems unpleasant to say the least and I was wondering if you are going in for surgery (something above the waist) can you request / demand a suitable diaper instead of being catherized? A diaper seems safer than forcing a...

    A Good Diaper for Post-op (Wife as Caretaker)

    Hello All, I'm taking to my computer to ask a fairly serious question. I'm going in for some pretty major surgery, and will be staying the night at the hospital--after that, it's pretty much 2 weeks of bed rest. The wife is encouraging me to wear at the hospital. She thinks I "need" them to...

    Neck Surgery - What Are Your Thoughts?

    OK, Here's the deal. My neck has been getting worse for about the last four years. I think I hurt it along with my back in a car accident, or by lifting heavy equipment at work; I'm not sure which one. Anyway I've been dealing with headaches, muscle spasms, numbness in my fingers, and shooting...

    Putting The Myth To Rest

    Hello Everyone, I had followed a link one evening last week that brought me to this forum. I have looked around after signing up but can't find the thread I was reading. So I figured I would just create a new one that will help dis-spell the myth that there is no surgery to make you...
