Follow-up after surgery
After surgery, your doctor will schedule you for a series of check-ups. During these visits, a urine sample will be checked for cancer cells, and your urethra will be examined with a cystoscope (urethrocystoscopy) and with imaging. Please be sure to attend these visits.
Regular check-ups are critical to ensuring that complications or disease recurrences are found early.
A specialist, usually the urologist, should coordinate and interpret the results from the follow-up visits. That specialist should also be the main contact for questions about your disease or related issues.
