Welcome and thanks for writing in.

Sexual activity after prostate removal depends on duration since operation. Blood in urine may be due to proper examination. Ultrasonography of urinary tract may be necessary depending on surgeon opinion.

Hope I have answered your query.

Hi!. I'm having some difficulties in the procedure called Irrigating cystoclysis...I found the answers but I can't reason out why..

-to restore or maintain the patency of the bladder
•     to prevent formation of calcific deposits in and around the indwelling catheter
•     to relieve bladder spasm
•     to drain the bladder when acute urinary retention is present
•     to irrigate bladder with a medication to treat an infection or local bladder irritation

why is it cystoclysis is indicated for post genito-urinary surgery, urinary tract infection and also in prostatic hematuria?..

Alright, I'm 14 years old, 5'9 and 146 lbs. I'm having a horrible stinging pain when I urinate (really, I have to resist the urge to scream) and I apparently have gross hematuria. I just got off my period, but I don't think that has anything to do with it. A previous test before (I forget what it was called; they slipped a camera up into my bladder) showed that I have benevolent spots all over the inside of my bladder. (They looked like chicken pox.) Do you think the spots have to do with what's going on? What could I have?
