14 Tips to Help You Recuperate from Prostate Operation

14 Tips to Help You Recuperate from Prostate Operation

A prostate operation involves the removal of a part of the prostate gland or sometimes the removal of the entire prostate gland. Such a surgery is a serious one and several recovery tips must be followed by a patient to ensure quick and successful healing. 

Here are some important tips for recuperating from a prostate operation:

  1. After the surgery, you need to spend up to three days in the hospital for initial recovery. You might be given fluids, which go directly into your veins until you fully recover from anesthesia.
  2. After the operation, normal urination will be disrupted in the beginning, as the urethra stays swollen. Urinating gets a little difficult and uncomfortable for a few days after the removal of the catheter.
  3. You may feel fatigued and may feel under the weather for some weeks after a prostate operation. So you must take things easy for at least two months.
  4. Avoid lifting or moving heavy objects for some weeks following the surgery. Do not perform any exercise, which causes strain. You should ask your friends and family members to carry out chores for you.
  5. After becoming slightly stable you should start gentle exercises. Walking is an effective remedy, which helps in blood circulation and lowers the risk of getting blood clots in the legs.
  6. You should drink lots of water during the recovery stage. This will reduce the risk of getting a urinary tract infection and also help in clearing any trace of blood from your urine.
  7. For improving bladder control, you should perform several pelvic floor exercises.
  8. In case of any kind of pain, you can take over the counter painkillers to ease the pain.
  9. It will take you a time span of three to six weeks for total recovery after a prostate operation. You should consult a surgeon about the best time to return to normal daily activities.
  10. You can get back to work soon, but it depends on your nature of work. Office jobs are not much of a problem, but in case of physical labour, more time is needed before you can resume your duties.
  11. Activities such as driving can be started quite soon after initial recovery. However, it varies from person to person. Some people may get back to driving within two weeks while some may need a month.
  12. You have to wait for 6 to 8 weeks after a prostate operation before getting back to sexual activities.
  13. In case you experience high fever, pain during urination or the inability to urinate, you must consult your doctor immediately.
  14. It takes a person several weeks to recover from a prostate operation completely. Initially, total rest is required. But eventually, he can return to normal activities and lead a healthy life.

You should follow these very important and simple things to prevent stone formation & to get sure treatment of kidney stones: 1. First take a lot of fluid daily. The more you drink water and fluid, the less amount of deposit accumulate in kidney. So you have to make your kidneys healthy just only by drinking 2-3 liters (10-12 glasses) of water. 2. Stones are mainly formed of calcium and oxalate. So take very low quantity of milk, cheese, cream and dairy products. 3. Do not take strawberry, plum, spinach and tomatoes. These fruits and vegetables are rich in oxalate. So avoid them to prevent from kidney stones. 3. Stop taking supplementary vitamin d and calcium medication. 4. Avoid animal protein diet- eggs, red meat, fish in diet. 5. Take less amount of salt, pickle and western foods. They have high amount of sodium. So avoid it. 6. Urinary infection are also one of the cause of stone. So take proper antibiotic treatment of urinary infection on time. Even when you feelburning sensation or pain during urination, don't avoid it. Take medication as soon as possible. I hope you follow them in your life andstay healthy. 7. You can take gokshur tablets of himalaya for 3 months. It definitely get relief from kidney stones. 8. You can also take neeri syrup 1-2 table spoon with a glass of water at least for 1 month.

I have a stone of 3.5 mm in my right kidney, is there any homeopathic or Ayurvedic cure.
Renal calculus or kidney stones is nowadays is common problem. Just because of our lifestyle. Nothing to worry it is treatable. As the size is not more it can be treated very well in homoeopathy. There are many medicines in homoeopathy for such problem. Depending upon your case history specific medicine is prescribed. Along with it you need drink 10-15glass of water every day. Avoid spinach, tomato. And such calcium rich food.

Kidney stones treatment depends on the types and size of stone, most kidney stones won't require invasive treatment. You may be able to pass a small stone by: drinking water. Drinking as much as 2 to 3 quarts (1.9 to 2.8 liters) a day may help flush out your urinary system. Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, drink enough fluid mostly water to produce clear or nearly clear urine. Pain relievers. Passing a small stone can cause some discomfort. To relieve mild pain, according to your medical history I may prescribe pain relievers such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen or naproxen sodium. Medical therapy. I am a doctor and renal (kidney) dietitian who will aslo prescribe a customized diet plan and medications to help pass your kidney stone quickly and with less pain. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan including dietary therapy.

I am 24 years old. Last month I got to know that I don't have my right kidney and left one has a swelling. But I don't feel any problem with myself and I am fit. My GFR reading is 94ml/min. Doing pyeloplasty operation at this point of time is necessary or I can avoid for now? I was about to join my 1st ship in merchant navy when I got to know this. Please help.

Urologist,
Hi, your gfr is very good for a single kidney. Did you have any pain or urine infection? if you can share the ultrasound report, I will be in a better position to guide you. Otherwise, since the ultrasound shows hydronephrosis, next step is to get a dtpa scan (with f-15 protocol) done. It is done in nuclear imaging centers. It will show whether the swelling is really dangerous to kidney or not. If dtpa scan show obstruction, then its better to undergo pyeloplasty. Since you are asymptomatic with good gfr, I feel that your dtpa will be normal and you may not need pyeloplasty. However, since you have a single kidney with swelling further evaluation in the form of dtpa scan is a must. Wish you good health,

Ye ek aam samsya hai. Kuchh log hasthmaithun, guda maithun aadi ke atyadhik pryog ke karan ye samsya pauda kar lete hain. Uchit diet na lena bhi isko barha deta hai. Tedhapan bhi thheek ho sakta hai aur dhat bhi. Sabse pahle pareshan bona chhoro. Jab hal hai to nirasha kyon. Bas aap hamare nirdeshon ka palan karen. Sabse pahle khoob pani piyen. Peshab khoob aana chahiye. Til aur moongphali khana shuru kare. Bazar se kababchini 100 gm lakar koot len. 100 gm boora' dalen. 100 gm gokhru ka chooran dalen. Mix karen. Use 1-1 chammach din me teen bar pani ya garam doodh se len. Is dauran aap stambhak yog shudh asli'tila' ka pryog shuru kar den. Bazar me otc dawa ka istemal na karen. Ye aapke hit me hai. Yadi koi achha purana ayurveda doctor ho to uski salah len.

urine sugar is not measured quantitatively. 1 + stands for mild (roughly more than 180 mg%) and so on. During our MD days, we would rely upon urine sugar estimation as blood glucometers were not freely available. but, in present days, urine sugar has become nearly obselete . you have very high blood sugar levels, which can be dangerous. consult with a good physician immediately and take proper medicines.

I am 30 year old male gets mild pain on back near kidney area and don't drink much water also.

Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho)

Hello, First of all its very bad habit of not drinking much of water. Human body needs much water. If water intake is less kidneys had to retain water and produce concentrated urine which leads to salt precipitation and stone formation. Which causes pain. Pls get your sonography done and feel free to share your reports with me. Thanks.

The treatment recommended for the cortical cyst depends on the size. Small cysts do not cause any symptoms and they are often detected by accident. If it causes symptoms they might need surgery. Hope this answer helps u

The best ayurveda herb for your case is Natural home remedy using kidney beans: 1. Take 60 gm kidney beans 2. Add 4 L of water 3. Heat for 4-5 hr 4. Strain the liquid through a fine muslin cloth 5. Allow the liquid to cool 6. Drink 1 glass of this liquid once every 2 hr in a day 7. Do this for a week 8. Do not use the liquid or the beans again 24 hr after the 1st preparation Surely you will get results.
