1. Abnormal urination – People normally experience burning sensations days after they have had the procedure. This is not something to worry about. The urge to urinate can be intense, and there is no need to try and hold it. Holding it will allow the blood in the bladder to clot and possibly cause a blockage.
2. Infection – The procedure can cause germs to enter the urinary tract resulting in infection. The good news is that this rarely happens. This is the reason why doctors may prescribe antibiotics before and after the procedure. Factors such as age and an unusual structure of the urinary tract increase the possibility of having an infection.
3. Pain – Many people will likely experience a burning sensation when passing urine and abdominal pain. The pain is not severe and gets better over time.
4. Bleeding – Many people pass urine with blood. This is not a serious case and there a few isolated cases when the bleeding is severe.
5. Urethritis – Urethritis is the swelling of the urethra. This is the most frequent complication and is coupled with difficulties in urinating. People who go for more than eight hours experiencing difficulties in urinating should see their doctor immediately.
6. Persistent pain in the stomach – This calls for an immediate visit to the doctor.
