<and I have to
have a catheter balloon for a week following the procedure to prevent
adhesions.(Doesn't that sound fun??)>>

I just wanted to say that I had one after one of my surgeries and
wondered if it really helped or not. Well that was three years ago and
now I feel like whatever help it would have given probably doesn't exist
anymore.. ?what do you think? I do have to say that the balloon did
not cause me any discomfort. (I had tylenol w/ codeine though). I even
was at a wedding a few days later dancing up a storm. Hopefully it will
be as easy for you!! I will be thinking of you,
