With the catheter removed, my first two peeing efforts at the Nuffield Hospital weren't promising. I had (as a slight complication) to sit over a special paper bowl that fitted into the toilet pan: this caught the urine and allowed measurement. But my peeing technique was bad. Crouched forward as I was, just a few puny drops came past my swollen labia in pee number one. It was enough to take the pressure off for an hour. Pee number two was more copious, half a bladder-full surely, but, leaning forward, I stretched my suture-lines too much. This induced enough pain to make me whimper. And there was blood in the urine. But the nurse was very reassuring: blood was to be expected, and I'd see less and less of it in the future. (This was perfectly true. No blood now) And it was OK to pee standing up in the bath, or in any position that avoided stretching those suture lines.
So my remaining pees at the Nuffield were unashamed, abandoned, down-the-left-leg-while-standing jobs. Nice long ones, as much as possible squeezed out. There was no pain. I found that if I stood with my legs well apart, I had a proper straight-down, big-waterfall cascade.
Real uro fetish stuff, this! Although I hasten to say that personally I can't see the fascination of deliberately peeing into your knickers/jeans/Darth Vader disguise/whatever just to feel some warm wetness. I like to be dry, fragrant and very clean at all times.
Once home, some concerns re-emerged. Could I really use my toilet at all? Wouldn't I get suture-line torture again? But those fears were groundless. All I had to do was lean backwards a little, and not crouch. And I was helped by the long slanting grab handles on either side of the narrow toilet that Dad had installed: so wonderfully handy to rest your entire arms on, or to pull on for a hover, say! Thank you, Dad!
And I can still pee in the shower, if more convenient.
So this part of my immediate homecoming, so potentially fraught with problems, has been rapidly coped with and there seems nothing to worry about. Each pee has been better than the last. Once the swellings have gone down it seems pretty clear that I'll have a strong downward jet to be proud of!
Number 2s have at no point been a problem. But they seem even easier with that lean-back position.
