Hi,

My father had a cystoscopy done 7 days back for removal of a tumor in baldder. Four days after Cystoscopy he was doing great.. normal urination had started with very less burning sensation.. however yesterday he felt acute pain and today he could not urinate at all... we had to to take him to doctor who put him in cathederal.. Doc says he should have this for 15 days and then he will see... :(  is it normal...?  will this increase chances of infection... please advise...

Hi allround,

Yes, it happens in many patients.  Basically the urethra can swell or even spasm after the procedure and then you can't urinate. 

Sometimes the tissues become traumatized during/after the cystoscopy and need to recover.  The catherization can help with this.

It can become infected, yes.  Make sure he washes his hands before handling the catheter or its bag.  Keep the area clean and be careful when handling the bag.

Are they still using an indwelling catheter? One that's kept in versus an "intermittent" catheter, used just to get him to void then removed?

UTI's are common with indwelling catheters, less so with the "intermittent."

Make sure he's drinking lots of fluids. One of the best ways to reduce infection is to keep fluids moving through the bladder.

Hope it helps.
