Hi, my father is 68 years old, had gallbladder removed 5 weeks ago. He’s having trouble urinating, no pain but can’t urinate without a catheter. He got a UTI from catheter as well, which is common. He’s told that bladder isn’t functioning properly due to the impact anesthetic had on it. He was also told that his prostate is enlarged and is part of the problem. He’s been running a low grade fever for weeks, initial blood test showed that red blood cell count is too high (which doc said could be due to smoking or carbon monoxide poisoning). He’s taking some meds to lower the blood pressure a bit which was a problem prior to surgery. He’s not a smoker, not overweight, he eats large portions but most meals are home cooked, he also loves sweets. He’s now taking meds for the prostate and did a more complex blood test today and is changing the catheters himself. He’s got an appointment with a urologist in a month, if things don’t improve he’ll have to have another surgery. I’m interested in hearing some words of encouragement from males who have had the same symptoms which got resolved eventually. What worked for you and how long after surgery did it take for things to go back to normal? Thank you! 🙏??
