Could suprapubic cathether be better than ileal conduit surgery for my father with URI bladder cancer?
Here are some ...: Radical cystectomy with non-continent (ileal conduit) or continent (neo-bladder) diversion is the standard of care for muscle-invasive bladder cancer for appropriate surgical candidates. So, suprapubic catheter has no position for treating bladder cancer but only in case for palliative care. Meanwhile, would you tell me what is URI bladder cancer? For additional detail? Ask treating Doc timely. ...Read more

Large kidney stone in kidney. Deciding between a laser lithotrypsy or arthroscopic direct removal. Ureter stents very uncomfortable for me. Thoughts?
Very briefly.: An indwelling ureteral stent is removed in one of two ways. A quick pull on a little string to pull it out of the urethra, or by using a flexible scope to enter the bladder and pulling out the stent with forceps. Both can cause bladder discomfort and some flank pain as it is quickly removed. Some residual pain can linger for a day or two. Pain can be variable with many feeling no pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need work up: Need work up for obstruction at ureter , yes stone and tumor can cause, but more often a benign vascular band rather than cancer is the cause , before you worry you need more work up .

What is urethrocystoscopy + bladder neck incision? I underwent that procedure. Is painful urination common after catheter being removed? Please rush
Common: It is common to have painful urination for a week or two after catheter is removed. Given your young age, your urologist probably diagnosed you with a high riding bladder neck that was causing you difficult voiding symptoms. The procedure involves putting a camera scope in your urethra and making relaxing incisions in your bladder neck with laser or cautery to change your bladder neck angle. ...Read more
I was wondering is a cystoscopy (bladder biopsy) standard procedure if you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer?
Not routinely: I have not seen a cystoscopy routinely done for prostate cancer. It could be considered if the cancer was very advanced and there was suspicion of bladder invasion. It could be considered to evaluate blood with urination to find the source of bleeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Urine stream extremely weak after cystourethroscopy with hydro...Bladder had possible moderate glomeration before procedure..How long recovery?
Slow stream: When you hydrodilate the bladder you stretch the bladder muscle which make weaken its contractility temporarily. In a male who may have an enlarged prostate it may cause resistance to flow and therefore a weak stream. The question I have is what led to hydrodilation of your bladder. Glomerular ions are seen with interstitial cystitis but maybe just result of overstretching the bladder. ...Read more
I had Laparascopic inguinal hernia repair. I had pain and urethra trauma from the bladder cath. Why cath NON indicated patients with empty bladder?
Depends: The most common problem facing patients immediately after surgery is that of urinary retention, the inability to pass urine. This is a side effect of the anesthesia and is usually relieved after a few hours. If urinary retention is prolonged, you may have a catheter inserted into your urethra. The catheter is left overnight and removed in the morning. I would ask the surgeon why you needed the Catheter. I am sorry that you were traumatized. ...Read more
