Post radical prostatectomy (RP) Challenges
Hello all, thanks for any input.
I had my RP 11 days ago. Had fairly severe bruising on my left side that seems to be diminishing. Initially it was thought that is was caused by my semi-violent wake-up from anesthesia. Doc gave me Bactrim antibiotic to diminish possibility of infection. Looks, like I am out of the woods on that, but nasty side effects, loss of appetite, constipation and insomnia. On day 7 went in for a systogram and ever since then I have had more/intermittent pain at Catheter site and abdominal area. Urine is flowing well, but is still pretty red. Slight leakage from catheter/penis when doing bowel movement. The results from Systogram was described as “significant leakage” from interior site. So was not able to have catheter removed. Scheduled for fluoroscopy imaging for this Monday. Is this too soon to repair significant leakage? Last night had significant leg cramping. It has been a challenge. Anyone else have a similar experience? I hope not. Thank you
