Radical prostatectomy

Follow-up

Observations

  • Bleeding
  • Anastomotic dehiscence
  • Urinary tract infection  
  • Deep venous thrombosis/lung embolism

The patient will have the Foley catheter in place for 14 days. He will be trained to clean the catheter and use a leg before returning home. The patient should also be informed about erection and continence training. After a robot-assisted radical prostatectomy, the patient is usually discharged on the second postoperative day.

The Foley catheter is removed after 10 days and a urine sample is collected for bacterial testing

The pathology report may take 2-3 weeks. This histological examination is very resource-demanding for a pathology laboratory.

The patient have a follow-up examination with an urologist 6 weeks postoperatively.
