"Admitted for urinary tract problems - Mater public Brisbane "

About: Mater Private Hospital Brisbane / Accident & emergency

(as the patient),

I had a prostatectomy in July and appeared to recover from this procedure. However, after a month or so I began to experience some bleeding when urinating and also difficulty when undertaking this function. When it became worse I decided to see medical assistance. On the advice of my doctor I was admitted to the emergency department at the Mater Private Hospital where a catheter was fitted and an irrigation of my bladder and urinary tract was undertaken. I was advised there has been an infection and this was subsequently overcome.

Everything went well , the care I received was good as was the food and attitude of the nursing staff and doctors that looked after me.
