Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
Although you have not provided details on the surgery, location, size, type of anesthesia
, etc. These are two unrelated problems. During or immediately post-operative you will be helped with a urinary catheter to help drain your bladder, this will be in place till you are mobilized and you can visit a toilet on your on. Another reason why the catheter is advised is due to the effect of the anesthesia used.
The catheter will be inserted by a specialist which will prevent any damage to surrounding structures while inserting; and should be in place for a short duration, thus avoiding infections as well.
This will not effect your prostate
, and the course of flomax
will be unnecessary.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
