|Comment||Thank you very much! Most everone in the medical profession that I've encountered has the same view as you-calling me unusual for wanting to remember the Foley insertion. This is my thinking- I'd rather face a little discomfort than have people doing things to my body that I'm unaware of. The idea that my body would go through things my mind would not know about is much more disturbing to me than a little pain. Besides, the pain I experienced after surgery from the operation itself was MUCH worse than pain from a catheter placement (something that hospital staff should know-so it confuses me that the reaction I got was labeled as "unusual"). Thank you for responding to my question!|
