Welcome to the best forum on the web. I too had some sharp pains for a few days after my
open RRP. I thought that perhaps the catheter was plug up with a blood clot or something. The pain was quite sharp and lasted for maybe 1-2 minutes and then subsided again. This happen several time a day during 3-4 days after surgery and my urologist told me that they were bladder spasms. After about
4 days the pain stopped and did not return.
Hope that's all that's wrong with your husband.
Wishing him a quick and complete recovery.
