2. Best of luck to you.

I agree, it's a minor procedure but I had to stay overnight. I was so happy when the nurse told me I could get up to pee but then....all of a sudden she ordered me back into bed and was clearly panicked. The nursing supervisor appeared. I didn't know what was happening. The artery had opened when I got up and I was squirting blood. They stopped it with pressure and told me I had to stay in bed for a few more hours. I still had to pee. First time using a bedpan.

I hope you can go home but don't be disappointed if they make you stay. And don't get up too soon!
