Urinary Tract Cancers
My wife had a TUR a liitle over a week ago and all went well, with a minmum of discomfort. The only thing that bothered her was that immediately after the procedure, she had a sore lump in her upper inner thigh. It appears that she might have been "pinched" during the procedure. The lump is getting smaller and she is not overly concerned. As a matter of curiousity, we were wondering, during the TUR procedure, is some sort of device used to hold the legs apart that might irritate the patient. Thanks.
The legs are held apart by stirrups and not by a devise pushing them apart. I do not know what the "lump" could be from but suggest that she be examined by the physician who did the operation. It is likely that he/she can provide an explanation.
