So, after 2 weeks of extreme discomfort - the details of which I'm not going into - I had a cystogram Friday last week to make sure the bladder was healed and not leaking. It was uncomfortable, but not as bad as the one I had when there was a tear in it. And on Monday, the specialist said it was ok to have the catheter removed and the nurse did it almost straight away. Oh blessed freedom!!

Of course, my bladder then had to get back into the real swing of things, but all seems to be going well. Now I'm more concerned about the appendectomy itself and whether all the abdominal spasms may have slowed the healing. However, I'm so much better than I was and I went to work for a half day on yesterday and today and was really only tired at the end of it. Hopefully I'll be able to do a full day of work next week - as long as work mainly consists of sitting at the computer. I still have a few weeks of no heavy lifting, which can be a bit difficult as 5 kg isn't really that much. I picked up one of the cats today and then realised that she would be pretty close to that limit.

Of course, now that I'm coming out of the brain fug induced by being unwell, I'm starting to think about all the things I need to do. Argh!
