Your doctor will advise you in detail how to prepare for the procedure. If you are taking any prescribed medication, discuss it with your doctor. You may need to stop taking it before the procedure.
After the procedure
How long will it take me to get back to my daily activities?

You need to go back to your doctor or to the hospital right away if you:
- Develop a fever
- Are unable to urinate on your own
