I hope I posted this in the correct area. I was hoping someone could give me some links so I can read up on bladder damage and what can be done for it please!
My husband went to the ER last week and after being there for 7 hours, they finally found he had a bladder 3 times normal size and it was FULL. They had to put a catheter in and pulled out over a litter of urine. He had to keep the catheter in for a week and he just got it taken out yesterday morning by the urologist. The Dr. said he is worried about bladder damage and put him on the same meds that the ER doc. gave him the week before. We know this was all caused by enlarged prostate and I read up on all the different options for that, but now looking for bladder damage options just so I am informed in case there is any.
The urologist is having my husband come back in one month so they can go in with a camera and look at the bladder and prostate and see what damage has been done, so obviously he is not looking forward to it!
We are also very worried, even though he only had the catheter out for a day, he is having such a hard time going to the bathroom and we are both worried that the bladder will fill up again like before and we don't want to go through another miserable week like that EVER again!
So any places I can read up on what can be done if there is any damage to his bladder, I will be VERY appreciative!!! And will help us be prepared also.
Thank you so much!
