Bladder stones are hard masses made up of minerals in your urine located in your bladder. When your bladder blocks the flow of urine and irritates your bladder wall, your doctor may recommend that you undergo bladder stone removal. Your options to remove bladder stones include cystolitholapaxy and surgery.
Cystolitholapaxy is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under general or local anesthetic. During this procedure, your surgeon uses ultrasound, laser, and other tools to break the stones into tiny pieces and flush out the tiny pieces. If your bladder stones are large, your doctor will perform surgery in which your bladder is opened through an incision and the stones are then removed.
You may need to stay in the hospital for several days, typically around 3 to 4 days. However, you will need to attend follow-up appointments where your bladder will be checked by an X-ray or CT scan and the stitches will be removed by your doctor. Therefore, plan to stay for 7 to 10 days in Malaysia or until your surgeon tells you it is okay for you to return home.
The recovery time of cystolitholapaxy is a lot shorter than open surgery. In general, you should be able to resume most of your normal activities and go back to work within 3 to 4 weeks. If your job requires heavy lifting and physical activity, you may need more time before you can return.
Drinking plenty of water, around 8 glasses per day is very important after your surgery. During your recovery period, make sure to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities. Your doctor will give you a set of instructions that include your diet plan, exercise, and care for the wounds to reduce your chances of infection. About a month after the procedure, schedule a follow-up checkup with your local doctor.
Bladder stone removal is very safe and effective, but there are some side effects and risks you need to be aware of. The main risk is urinary tract infection, which affects around 1 in 100 people who have bladder stone removal. Other risks and side effects include bleeding, infection, bladder tear or damage to internal tissue, and reaction to the anesthesia.
Bladder stone removal is only performed when your bladder stones are large, and you cannot completely empty your bladder of urine. Small bladder stones can be flushed out by drinking lots of water.
Bladder stones can cause painful symptoms, discomfort, and block your urine from getting out. After bladder stone removal, all of these problems will be gone and you can enjoy your life again.
