You will be admitted to hospital for 3-4 days. The indwelling catheter, which is inserted under anesthesia after the operation, is usually removed after 2 days. If you develop a fever or if the bleeding is delayed, the indwelling catheter will not be removed until the situations resolves. Newly formed blood clots may have to be flushed out through the catheter.
After removing the catheter, you may experience a burning sensation and a rapid urge to urinate, so that you cannot hold the urine - this will pass.
On the day of discharge, you will be asked to measure your urine flow. This means you have to wait until you feel the next urge to urinate, then report to the nurse and micturate into a funnel. The urine volume and speed are measured and thus provide an indication of the success of the operation. After the measurement, the remaining urine in the bladder is measured with the ultrasound. If everything is okay, you will be discharged with a preliminary report.
