Bladder Pain After Laser Rupture Of Kidney Stones?
Afternoon, my father is 67 years old 2 Weeks ago he underwent rupture of kidney stones by laser method. After the operation, the doctor said that there was still a tube left in his kidney and that it would be removed after 2 months of surgery. But now my father has a fever and when he feels pain. And now he has difficulty walking … Is this side effect or is there something wrong with my father’s situation ??? Please explain and the solution …
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, what exactly is the kidney stone handling procedure that your father used up before? What is ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, procedure for solving kidney stones with sound waves)?
Kidney stones are one of the urinary tract disorders that are often experienced by older men. This condition can make sufferers feel quite severe pain in the waist to the back, which is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, pain during urination, plaque, reddish or gritty urine, urine stinging, difficult to urinate, fever, chills, and many more other complaints. This condition deserves further management so as not to lead to dangerous complications, including kidney failure. As for some ways that can be done to deal with kidney stones is lifestyle modification, administration of drugs, ESWL, surgery (surgery, nephrolitotomy), ureteroscopy (using a special scope to destroy stones), and so on. Laser therapy has so far not been commonly used to treat kidney stones. Therefore, it needs to be clarified first what kind of laser therapy you are referring to.
Post definitive handling of kidney stones, depending on the condition of the patient, the doctor can install a catheter tube in the patient's urinary tract to prevent urinary retention (urine retention in the body). One of the risks of this urinary catheter placement is recurrent UTIs. This risk is even higher if your father does not properly maintain the cleanliness of his sex organs, does not perform periodic post-operative control, and also has a weak immune system (for example due to diabetes, HIV, malnutrition, and so on). UTI is the possibility that makes him experience fever, pain during urination, also difficulty walking. Not only UTI, kidney stones themselves, or other conditions, such as sexually transmitted infections, viral or bacterial infections in other organ systems, etc. can also cause fever and pain when urinating like your father is experiencing at the moment.
To be clear, try to bring your father back to see a doctor or urologist surgeon who treated him beforehand so that it can be further evaluated through further tests, for example urine tests, blood tests, ultrasound, x-rays, and so on. As a first step, you can help your father by doing the following steps:
Give your father the paracetamol medication to reduce the fever and pain he feels
Let him rest more
Give him enough to drink, especially water, avoid giving tea, coffee, soft drinks or any bottled drinks
Ask your father to limit the consumption of foods containing lots of calcium oxalate, for example for beets, spinach, sweet potatoes, beans, tea, tofu, and places
Also limit consumption of foods that contain a lot of salt as well as animal protein
Make sure your father's intimate organs are always clean, not exposed to excess moisture
Do not carelessly give your father other drugs without doctor's advice
Hope this helps ...
