Leaving Behind Pain and Discomfort – Einstein Urology

About 900 pounds of motorcycle just crushed my entire midsection. All my broken bones healed but my urethra had failed to heal properly. The hospital that was treating me at the time, they just said this is something I’m going to have to live with. I had nowhere to go, I had no hope. My friends call me crash. it’s nickname i was given in my earlier, wilder days. I have lived in southeastern Pennsylvania all my life. What I have on my knuckle says “Save them” I am a humane society police officer working with a local area rescue. We rescue abused animals directly from the hands of their abusers. I was on my way down to the courthouse, my back tire had a patch of gravel and kicked out from underneath me. My motorcycle just crushed my entire midsection. I almost left this earth on that day. Ofcourse they’re looking at 15 bone fractures and I had damaged by anterior urethra. It was the least of their concerns because they figured it was the easiet to fix. Turns out that wasn’t the case. I’ve been living with this catheter for almost a year. All the aggravation of the problems and the leakage and the pain and discomfort of just having a catheter in there. One of the doctors at the hospital that was treating me at the time had mentioned that there was a surgeon with Einstein hospital that could possibly helping so I made an appointment at Einstein. He just looked me right in the eye and said, “I can fix that” I went home absolutely could not wait with the day of my surgery. Had the surgery performed the surgeon said, “Everything looks perfect.” He sent me home without the catheter for the first time in a year I was able to go to the bathroom like a big boy. Everyone at Einstein was just amazing from the surgeons, to the nurses, to the staff; they took such good care of me there. Einstein gave me more freedom, freedom to live my life the way I wanted to live it.
