    yes, how do operating room staff curb their bladders, esp. during long procedures??

    my mother underwent a liver transplantation surgery that lasted approximately 8 hours, which is quite a long procedure. i was not a nurse back then, but now that i am a nurse i do wonder how people in the operating room deal with the need to empty their bladders.

    we usually rotate among ourselves when mother nature calls and we can't hold it any longer, however, if you're a newbie at or they tend to make you wait until the procedure is over... and you're cross-eyed
