Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   please proceed with your health query
User :   Dear Doctor, My father in law was operated for prostate gland and app. 130 gms. material was removed but after one and half months also his urine is not in control
Doctor :   ok.
Doctor :   what symptoms does he have at present?
Doctor :   was repeat ultrasound scan done after the procedure?
User :   presently his urine is not in control and it is coming slowly regulary. while sleeping its speed reduces.
Doctor :   was urine flow testing done to look for nerve damage (nerve controlling the urine flow)
User :   yes it was done and as per doctor everything is ok but it will take some more time
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   then wait and watch, if he does not improve in next 15 days get a repeat examination and investigations done by a urologist
User :   Initially it was told by doctor that it will take to resume the urine contrl 15 days but still there is no improvement.
Doctor :   or take a second opinion form our panel urologists on how to go about further treatment.
User :   He has been shown to the same doctor at Pune. Still he is telling that it will be cured but it is very critical condition for a human being and moreover after this much days not a single percent improvement is observed. pl. give me details of a good urologist at Indoe.
Doctor :   visit this link if you would like to have a second opinion from our panel urologists
Doctor :   please give me a moment
Doctor :   this link will give you list of urologists
User :   My whole family is worried because this operation was done on 03 rd May and still there is no improvement. Always he has to be in the home and wear a big towel to stop dropping the urine.
User :   I want to know whether this is a normal incedent i.e. it happens in this kind of operation and what would be remeady. Actually in the second visit the doctor has given a clip that is also not so much useful.
Doctor :   ok, get a repeat examination done from another urologist and go ahead with further treatment as advised
Doctor :   some amount of urine dribble can happen, but it usually gets better in 15-20 days time
Doctor :   if it has not got better, then it would mean that he requires another check-up
Doctor :   to rule out any nerve involvement
User :   The same answer was given by doctor that in 15-20 days it will be ok but still there is no improvement. we are very much worried. we are near Indore so I want to show him at Indore to a good urologist.
Doctor :   he will need special tests to rule out any nerve damage
User :   Any other technical(medical) problem may be there. if so pl. state
Doctor :   it wil depend on the further investigation results. since I am not examining him personally, I will not be able to comment on this at this point of time.
User :   As per doctor all of his patient got operated earlier took maximum 1 month to be curred but in this case it can take more time but how much we should wait?
Doctor :   I would not suggest you to wait more than next 15 days, get a second opinion done by another urologist and go ahead with further tests especially to rule out nerve damage.
Doctor :   the earlier it is diagnosed and fixed, the better recovery chances are there.
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said?

Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   is there anything else I can help you with?
