I had laparoscopic rp one week ago and still have blood in my urine which I find disturbing. As far as I can see the blood must be coming from inside of the bladder, is this normal when can I expect the bleeding to stop.
Jim, it will be almost a month since your last reply, don't let us hanging. How are you doing since your cath has been removed?
I am almost 2 months post cath removal and have very, very little urinary control. What's your story?
I'm five weeks post radiation treatment and, although I have no blood in my urine, I still have pain, burning, frequency, urgency problems ... wondering if there's an actual light at the end of the tunnel.
Phred, I will be 2 months post Robotic Surgery in 3 days and feel absolutely fine, except I dribble in my pads 24 hours a day.
I guess I shouldn't complain, at least no burning, pain or urgency. Just frequency, frequency, frequency. LOL
I'm not discouraged, just anxious to see some improvement soon.
Hi just a update to my last post, The blood in my urine stopped a few days after I posted. I believe that I had perhaps overdone the exercise, I have been continent since the catheter was removed apart from two accidents and a few drips, I still wear pads when I go to bed but this only to give me piece of mind. I still feel some perineal pain when I'm sitting for a long time and also some pain in the groin area mainly on the left, I have mentioned this to my doctor but he says the healing process takes a long time. Tomorrow will be five weeks since my surgery and mainly I feel fine, as yet no luck with erections I think this will take some time as nerves were not saved on one side.
