... After my surgery (robotic laparoscopic), the catheter was in for 2 weeks. There were decreasing amounts of blood in the bag for 4 days then all was fine until day 10. Then, a long red thread-like thing appeared in the bag. When I emptied the bag into the toilet and flushed it, the red color (blood) disappeared and the thing turned out to be a black stitch about 6 inches... (2 replies)
... My husband had his prostate removed laparoscopically for prostate cancer. The surgery went well. He had a catheter for a week. It was removed and all seemed well. Good control, no leakage. None of the things he feared. But then urine flow slowed then stopped, and we had to go to the ER to have a catheter re-inserted, 16 hours after removal (OF COURSE this could not happen...

... We think (in retrospect) that taking it out at 1 week was way too soon, too. We were speculating as to why the practice does it that way, and my husband said, "More men would resist the surgery if they knew upfront they would have a catheter for 2 weeks."

Lupron would seem prudent however ask you Dr about preceding it with Casodex(can't remember the generic) to reduce the impact of flare in PSA on start up. Radiation would also make sense since the problem may be in the prostate bed. There are more sensitive scans available that can help pinpoint... (1 replies)

... I'm posting for my husband, who is 55 years old, and otherwise a very healthy man. In August, a routine bloodwork showed a PSA of 26. Subsequent biopsy showed positive for prostate cancer in 8 out of 8 cores and a Gleason Score of 7. A bone scan and CT scan showed no progression, so an RP was scheduled (robotic) on October 22. Post-op pathology was not good. Gleason was... (1 replies)
