Good Evening once again. After a week having been discharged I thought I should give Dr Ijane feedback. 1. At the outset I wish to profusely thank him for the safe and largely painless operation. Not to forget the professional care laced with a tinge of personal care of the nurses, the physio and the kitchen staff. 2. For as long as I can remember in all my adult life I have always released urine in slower phases. I had embraced this abnormality, thinking that to the extent that we have slow speakers and fast speakers, fast runners and slow runners there must be those who dribble at the urinals and I was one of them, particularly that while I took long to empty my bladder it was never painful. I had learnt to live with it: At big sports events and other big gatherings I generally avoided going to the urinals knowing that I tend to take long to the annoyance of others who think I unnecessarily hog the facilities. For the first time on Monday (19th September) after the operation I could not believe it when I took less than 30 seconds to empty my bladder with a very strong stream. It is still music to my ears, I like the strong splash sound as my forceful stream hit the bottom of the toilet. Deep down in my psyche I have been wounded and I feel a deeper sense of psychological gratification I am no longer a wimp at the urinals. 3, We all suffer from a little prejudice, I don’t know what I thought when I was referred to Dr Ijane and not to some white doctor. When I met him in person he did not look old at all and I must have thought ”he does not have experience”. We publicly do not want to admit that we have been conditioned to doubt our own and we generally expect excellence from other quarters. When I learnt that Dr Ijane is a motswana I was heartened and possibly part of me thought, we will see. It took less than five minutes of the initial consultation for Dr Ijane to not only reassure me that he knows what he is doing but to embarrass the cowardly part of me that was gripped with baseless insecurities. I was to be further embarrassed when I later learnt about his pioneering feats in robotics. 4. Ever since I left the hospital I feel so ok that I am now tempted to do stuff that I have been asked not to do e.g driving around the block and doing light exercises. Once again thank you for restoring me. God bless you even more.
