Lymph node dissection for intermediate and high risk prostate cancer



  • Bleeding
  • Anastomotic dehiscence
  • Urinary tract infection
  • Blood clot/lung embolism

The patient will have a Foley catheter. He will be trained to clean the catheter and use a leg bag before returning home. The patient should also be informed about erection and continence exercises. After a lymph node dissection with robot-assisted radical prostatectomy, the patient is normally discharged after the second postoperative day.

The Foley catheter is removed at the outpatient clinic 10 days postoperatively. A urine sample is taken for bacterial testing.

The patient will then have an outpatient follow-up check with an urologist 6 weeks after the operation.

The pathology report may take 2 to 3 weeks. This diagnostic test is very resource-demanding for a pathology laboratory.

Delayed effects

  • Incontinence
  • Impotence
