Brief Answer:
rare association, see urologist

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

Chances of developing a hernia after bladder imaging are very slim. You need a proper follow up by a urologist. This is particularly important since a suprapubic catheter is associated with other complications like infection.

Five months is relatively too long for having being spent without having a review by a surgeon or a urologist. Booking an appointment with a urologist or surgeon is a good idea. Associating hernia to a suprapubic puncture would be very very rare to occur. With a careful examination and questioning, other risk factors and appropriate examination to actually diagnose hernia of the region shall be made.

Book an appointment with a urologist. It is difficult to associate hernia with the test or procedure. Thanks and kind regards. Feel free asking follow up questions in case you have particular concerns. I shall be glad making suggestions. Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Urgent attention

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

Thanks for the update. from your clearer description now, it is for sure a hernia, arising due to an artificial line of weakness caused by the procedure.

It is urgent to get this situation addressed for two main reasons. For fear of obstruction of intestinal substance flow, for fear of reduction of blood flow to other structure caused by compression or strangulation of hollow structures. One cannot predict when this can occur. Doing tge surgery as an elective procedure is better, rather than as an emergency situation, usually accompanied by more complications. Legally, for first Dr could be at fault.

It is however urgent now for you to uphold your health as a priority and consult a urologist/surgeon for proper management. Thanks and kind regards as I wish you the best of health.

Brief Answer:
Deeper investigation needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

The person who gave the instructions for the installation will not be at fault in case all his instructions and indications were up to date and you rightly deserved it. The person who carried out the procedure would be at fault if is proven that he did it wrongly. He would only be free if it is proven during the investigation that he placed everything correctly and the adverse events occurred by chance. Careful investigations are required before documenting the culprit in this case.

Kind regards,
