Post-operative recommendations after treatment with vapor injection under local anesthesia

You will leave the clinic with a urinary catheter  

First day
Complete rest.  
The day after the surgery and for the first week
  • You can walk, but go gradually by alternating periods of activity of 15-30 minutes with periods of rest.  
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects (more than 10 kg) for ONE week.
  • Avoid intense exercise or physical activity for ONE week.
  • Avoid having sex for ONE week.
  • Drink plenty of water to allow small clots to drain well from the bladder and have clear urine; about 8 ounces (0.3 kg) every 2 hours during the day and stop 2-3 hours before bedtime.
  • The probe is usually removed after about 7 days at the office or at the CLSC.  A follow-up appointment is scheduled after 2 months, with a flow meter and an ultrasound of the bladder.

    Dr. Marois is a urologist who is not a member of the Régie d’Assurance Maladie du Québec (RAMQ). As such, the clinic can not claim the RAMQ for the payment of his services. If you consult Dr Marois, you must pay for the services rendered.

    Cancellation of appointment:

    To ensure the smooth running of the clinic and a minimum of courtesy towards other patients and our staff, we ask you to notify us 48 hours in advance for the cancellation of a consultation, 5 working days in advance for a surgery at the office and 21 working days in advance for a major surgery. If these deadlines are not respected, a cancellation fee of 50% of the service will be charged.

    Change of appointment:

    We understand that events occur, so we ask you to provide us with at least a 24-hour notice for any change in their appointment; we will be happy to accommodate you, the best we can. However, if you fail to inform us within this timeframe or do not show up, we will charge a $ 100 fee.

    Thank you for your understanding.
