Hi, I am 1 year lost robotic surgery to remove my prostate. I have also had a constricture at neck of bladder, which I had widened. I now use no 14 speed carbs twice aday. This morning I have passed a lot of blood stained urine and I also have a light pain in bladder area. I did have difficulty one day ago with catheter insertion.
do I need to see someone or do I need an antibiotic in case of infection
Thanks for getting in touch with us. I am sorry to hear you are experiencing these symptoms. It sounds very uncomfortable.
We would strongly suggest getting in touch with your GP in the first instance, they are likely to take a specimen of your urine and consider anti-biotics if they suspect an infection. If you have any difficulties reaching your GP, please call NHS 111.
We would also suggest getting in touch with your cancer (uro-oncology) nurse specialist if you have one, or your consultant, to let them know what has been happening.
If you wanted to get in touch to talk any of this through, please do get in touch. We are here every day from 8am -8pm on 0808 808 0000.
I hope this problem is assessed and managed quickly
