I am doing some research to help my dad who is 87 years old. Despite having a stroke induced by anesthesia which left him unable to speak and with right arm paralysis, he’s done well for the past 12 years.
Now because of an enlarged prostate, the urologist insisted to do a Cystoscopy then left him with a Foley catheter inserted. It’s been over 2 weeks and he is now in the hospital with a bad infection and very weak, where just recently he was very active.
The urologist wants to do Greenlight laser on him put since he is high risk with the anesthesia and bleeding: heart we don’t want to do it.
Someone in another forum suggested suprapubic catheter and I would like to know if anyone has any advice.
Was the procedure very painful? Can it be done with minimal anesthesia? Is it very painful afterward?
