Abstract

Abstract Objectives: To assess the length of recovery phase in urinary tract dysfunction following radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer patients in Ciptomangunkusumo Hospital. Methods: This survey study was conducted in Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital from September 2016 to May 2017. Subjects were cervical cancer patients from stage IA2 to IIA2 underwent radical hysterectomy. Suprapubic catheter (SPC) was inserted to observe the urine production after procedure. Patients were then directed for bladder training protocol involving clamping and opening SPC. Sensation of bladder fullness followed by spontaneous micturition were recorded. Measurement of post voiding residual (PVR) urine volume after spontaneous micturition until less than 100 mL was considered as resolution of urinary tract dysfunction. The average days of every achieved phase were then calculated. Results: Twenty-nine subjects underwent radical hysterectomy during observation period. But only 21 subjects continued the bladder training protocol and recorded for the recovery phases. The average time needed to obtain sensation of bladder fullness and spontaneous micturition were 7.57 ± 4.78 days (median 5 days, minimum 3 days,  maximum 22 days)and  8 ± 5.21 days (median 6 days, minimum 3 days, maximum 23 days). The objective PVR urine became less than 100mL was obtained after 21.42 ± 18 days (median 18 days, minimum 7 days, maximum 74 days). Conslusion: Following radical hysterectomy, recording the recovery phase of urinary tract dysfuction is essential to ensure complete resolution. Complete resolution of the urinary dysfunction is achieved after 21.42±18 days in average (median 18 days, minimum 7 days, maximum 74 days).
