March 28 & 29
Nocturia
In my failed search for a low dosage salt table, around 100mg, I ran across Cell Salt tablets.
They are small and melt under your tongue.
The tablet contains 12 different Cell Salts in 1 tablet.

4pm: Stopped fluids and food
10pm: Placed 2 cell salts tablets under my tongue and went to bed
Up 2 times each night instead of my usual 5.
The cell salts appear to contain enough salt to reduce my night time bathroom trips.

April 4 - 8 weeks post-op
No visible signs of blood since March 31

Urine flow sprays if my bladder is not full and streams when very full.

Stopped, Cell Salts, April 1st. They increased the time to start a stream to around 30 seconds on my night time bathroom trips.
The cell salts contained antihistamines and pain relievers.
I believe the pain reliever helped reduce the trips to the bathroom and the antihistamine caused the delay in starting a stream.
Taking ibuprofen before bed is a common practice to reduce your bathroom trips, but it’s hard on your liver.

Incorporating more red meat, instead of chicken, for the taurine and B vitamins.
Results:
- 4 hamburgers in one day, up 2 times that night
- 1 hamburger the next day, up 3 times on that night.

Short bouts of depression, around the 7 week post-op time frame, thru April 3.
I can definitely tell that my body is going thru some chemistry changes.
The depression may be my body reverting from a sympathetic (3 yrs of fight or flight) mode to a parasympathetic (rest and digest) mode.
