Postoperative Course

Patients are admitted for overnight observation and discharged within less than 23 or 24 hours after surgery.

Pain management includes ketorolac and acetaminophen with codeine. The pelvic drain is typically removed before discharge. A cystogram is usually performed on postoperative day 4-6, and if no leak is present, then the catheter is removed. Out-of-state patients may fly home within 48 hours and have their local urologist remove the catheter 10 to 14 days postoperatively.
