I wrote a while ago that after my RP I developed a near total blockage in my urine track which required emergency surgery to
open up the
opening from the bladder. This happened on New Year's weekend. Everything was working good after that but I have noticed a decline in urine flow over the last couple of weeks. I still get a decent stream and empty the bladder but nothing like the couple of weeks after they
opened me up.
I am concerned I may be closing up again. Has anyone had this experience and needed a second opening operation. If so at what point did you decide to contact your uroligist?
PS: Just info for others - I was fully continent 2-1/2 months after the RP so a quick recovery is possible - unfortuantely as noted above I have other issues going on.
On active surveillance for 18 months then had first follow up biopsy
Sept 1/10 - biopsy - 3 cores positive 2 @ G6 (20% & 50%) & 1 @ G7 (70%)
RP surgery booked for Nov 3/10.
Pathology - G7 - clean margins - organ confined disease
