Just got Eurolift done and right after urge to go won’t stop

Posted , 6 users are following.

5 days ago I got the Eurolift done. I opted for anesthesia.

Went home with a foley catheter. The next day they removed it but I couldn't void except for thick dried blood and clots in a few dribbles. I had to go back and have another catheter put in. Unfortunately it ran into the weekend..so three more days until the office was open and they removed it today.

At first it came out in a dribble and weak flow. As the day is progressing the urge to go has become strong. The flow is better not all there yet though.

My question is this:

After I pee I immediately feel a very strong urge to go again. This seems to now be non stop and its extremely uncomfortable. Does this get better with time. Is UTI medication (the one that turns your pee orange) any help or do you just have to bare it, get no sleep and suffer with this. Its terrible. Or is this the bladder from the catheter or the uretha being sore or the operation.

    Sorry to hear this report. Hope things improve soon

    My URO keeps suggesting I have one, but the more I hear stories like this it strengthens my resolve to pass.

    I think strong urges to pee are typical after any prostate surgery. It should fade after a few days.

    I think you are having bladder spasms. This should subside. There are some medications for bladder spasm that your doctor should know of.

    I'm sure the foley being in me for 4 days probably made things worse. Especially since I had to have two last week. I had bad spasms with that damn thing in me.
