Healing Period After Bladder Surgery?
Good evening .. my name is Anindita, age 25 years old .. I have undergone URS surgery 5 days ago .. until now I still have pain, is that normal? How long is the healing time for URS surgery due to narrowing of the ureter?
The URS procedure (ureteroscopy) is an endoscopic procedure to see the condition in the urinary tract which is done by a urologist to help diagnose the cause of complaints in the urinary tract, for example in urinary tract obstruction (stones, tumors or strictures / narrowing). Apart from diagnosing the disease, this procedure can also be accompanied by minimally invasive therapy, such as the destruction of urinary tract stones (lithotripsy).
After the URS procedure, you may experience pain especially when urinating accompanied by blood in the urine. These complaints will generally gradually subside after 24 hours and will gradually subside after 2-3 days. To relieve this complaint, after the URS procedure, the doctor will prescribe painkillers accompanied by antibiotics.
Complications that may occur after URS are:
injury or injury to the ureter urinary tract infection. Immediately visit a urologist if you experience complaints of pain that does not decrease or pain accompanied by fever or chills. To help relieve complaints, you can warm compresses in the urinary tract area.
