I had my urodynamic test today, and without giving you a blow-by-blow account, let's just say it was unpleasant.
Well, let's give you an abbreviated blow-by-blow.
Catheters up my bladder and vagina, electrodes on my rear. My rear was originally in the chair, then it was jacked up to be at the tech's eye level.
After she inspected her work she lowered me, she filled my bladder with cold water and had me hold it till I had to go. I alerted her that yes, gotta go now, and instead of letting me go she she said, "okay, now I'm going to fill it some more, and imagine you are driving down the highway. Let me know when you get to the point you'd have to pull over."
So I used my imagination and held on as long as my pride would let me, and then said "Okay. Pull over."
"So. Now I'm going to fill it some -"
"Really? I consider this a personal challenge. I'm going to hold it till I explode."
"No, don't do that!" She stopped filling me up. "Here, go ahead and urinate." So I did, and foolishly I didn't check to see if it was all clear now.
Eventually it was over after SHE FILLED ME UP AGAIN I SWEAR, this time with room temperature water, which was much less unpleasant. I coughed and pushed and she inspected me for leaks. (No leaks. Because my body did not relax for the catheters. The barricades were up.)
Won't know what the results are until next week. My pee smells lovely, though.
