    What Happens During URSL Surgery?

    URSL Diagnosis

    The urologists need to make some assessments before performing URSL Surgery. These assessments are made through a couple of diagnostic tests, including Imaging tests (X-ray, Abdominal Ultrasound, MRI), Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) test, Blood Test, and Urinalysis. The aim of carrying out these assessments is to figure out the size of the stone, the number of stones that need to be removed, and their location. 

    These tests also help doctors look for any underlying diseases that can cause complications in the procedure. The urologists will proceed with the procedure only after assessing the results of the tests carefully.

    URSL Procedure

    This surgery is performed in the following steps: 

    • The patient is administered spinal or general anesthesia, depending upon the requirement. 
    • Then, the surgeon inserts a thin, long fiber-optic scope called a ureteroscope into the ureteral passage through the urethra. Simultaneously, the surgeon uses x-ray to see inside the kidneys and ureters and locate the stones exactly.
    • Once the stone is located, it is collected in a stone basket and eventually pulled out of the system. 
    • If the stone is too large in size, then the surgeon uses a precision laser to break it into smaller pieces. The small stones can pass through the system naturally. 
    • The surgeon usually inserts ureteral stents to help flush out the stones from the body. The stent expands the passage of the ureter, which makes it easier for the stone fragments to travel through the ureter and out of the body.

    How to prepare for URSL surgery?

    If you’re about to undergo URSL surgery, it is advisable to prepare yourself for the surgery in advance. This includes following some precautions and making some lifestyle changes to promote the effectiveness of the surgery. Here are some ways in which you can prepare for your URSL surgery: 

    • Talk to your doctor and discuss your symptoms, medical history, and other important details in advance. You can also ask the doctor to explain the treatment procedure in advance and the risks associated with it. 
    • If you’re taking some medication, convey it to your doctor in advance. The doctor might ask you to discontinue some medicines before surgery, such as blood thinners, etc. 
    • If you’ve had an allergic reaction to anesthesia in the past, make sure your doctor is aware of this detail. An allergic reaction to anesthesia can delay the surgery, and may also lead to other complications. 
    • Avoid eating or drinking anything 6 to 8 hours before the surgery. This measure helps in preventing complications related to anesthesia.
    • Stop smoking or using any product that contains tobacco as it might affect the effectiveness of the surgery.

    What to expect post URSL surgery?

    Here’s what you can expect after URSL surgery: 

    You will be shifted to a recovery room, and the doctors will monitor your condition. If the doctors do not suspect complications, you’ll be discharged on the same day. 

    It is normal to experience some pain and discomfort due to stent insertion. The doctor will prescribe medicines to help relieve the pain. 

    Some people might notice blood in their urine, which is also very normal and generally subsides within a week or two of the surgery. 

    Recovery after URSL surgery

    The recovery period after URSL surgery is quite short and most patients can resume their routine within a week of the surgery, without experiencing any complications.Taking some precautions and making some changes in your lifestyle can help you recover even faster. Here are some tips that can help you recover quicker: 

    • Eat a healthy diet and drink plenty of fluids. Make sure that your diet is packed with fiber. 
    • Do not indulge in heavy workout for a couple of days after the surgery. 
    • Make sure you take the medicines prescribed by the doctor without fail. Skipping these medicines can delay the recovery process. Also, if you experience abnormal symptoms, get in touch with your doctor immediately. 

    What Are The Benefits of URSL Surgery?

    URSL is a modern technique to treat kidney stones and offers a respite from the painful condition while causing no discomfort to the patient. This is a minimally-invasive procedure i.e., it does not involve cuts or stitches which allows the patient to remain comfortable throughout.Some of the benefits of ureteroscopic lithotripsy include the following –

    • No cuts and scars
    • No bleeding during the surgery
    • Faster recovery
    • Minimal complications
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Outpatient procedure
    • Resume daily activities within a week

      Before taking treatment from pristyn care, I was totally against the private hospitals. But my perception changed when I took treatment from pristyn care. They have provided different treatment options along with other non-operative services. Without any tension, I've recovered from the disease now.

      There were many plus points for taking treatment from pristyn care. One of the best things about the whole procedure is they provide free transportation service on the day of surgery. It means you don’t have to worry about going from home to the hospital. It makes the whole treatment procedure easy and feasible.
