“My hospital treatment for stress incontinence left me with a urinary tract infection”
Negligent urological surgery can leave patients with extremely distressing symptoms involving urinary incontinence, stress incontinence (when a person passes a small amount of urine after laughing, sneezing or coughing) – as well as sexual dysfunction or internal injuries if urological surgery goes wrong and a nearby organ is damaged.
Post-operative infection can be another cause of injury following urological surgery – urinary tract infections (UTI) can soon pass up the urethra (the tube through which urine passes out of the body) to the bladder and then to the kidneys. Genitourinary infections can be extremely painful and debilitating – and may result in permanent kidney damage if not treated with the right antibiotic or a powerful enough dose to clear the infection.
Patient undergoing urological treatment may have a range of conditions requiring surgical procedures – including colposuspension or TVT (Tension-free Vaginal Tape) procedures for stress incontinence, or operations involving the kidneys (nephrectomy), bladder, urinary tract, or reproductive organs.
