Postoperative Care

The patient is allowed to begin oral intake as tolerated from postoperative day 1. Intravenous ketorolac 15 mg is administered every six hours as required, and the patient is instructed to lie flat in bed for the initial three days. Antithrombotic stockings and low-molecular-weight heparin is given until the patient is ambulating. The average length of hospital stay is between three and five days. After discharge, the patient is followed up with an intravenous urogram at about three months.
