My husband just woke up from recovery with two catheters one the normal way and one out of his belly under his belly button. He has had nothing but trouble since his selvedge prostatectomy aug 2. He had his catheter in from that surgery two weeks, then in so much pain they put another one in September that one had to be replaced in the ER. Now he went back to his original urigoliist surgeon team at CTCA and they put another new one in and the belly one.
The Selvedge prostatectomy has been brutal and he ended having positive margins no lymph nodes at this time but something in the report said cancer was around the bladder neck. I wonder if this is going to be a ongoing problem. Anyone out there have any ideas of what might be happening?
