Steps to take before Nephroureterectomy
Before the surgery, the doctor will advise you to have a clear liquid diet. Starting from the night before the surgery, it is advisable to not eat anything, even the medication should be taken with small gulps of water. The surgeon, at Medanta, may advise not to take certain medications a few days or weeks prior to the procedure.
What happens during Nephroureterectomy?
When the procedure begins, anaesthesia is given to the patient and a tiny camera is inserted via a small incision to provide magnified views. Then, the surgeon separates the organs from the supporting nerves. After the separation, the organs are removed from small incisions.
The process of Nephroureterectomy may sound complicated and scary, but the surgeons at Medanta will answer all the related queries to make the process simpler for you.
Once the procedure is done, the patient is taken to a well-equipped recovery room where the patient is monitored for any side-effects that may occur. It is advised to keep the body in motion continuously which avoids the formation of blood clots. After a week or two, the patient can get back to the normal food and routine.
