Summary
Brief summary
The incidence of bacteria in the urine after radical prostatectomy when patients still have their catheters is not known. How qucikly the bacteria clears after the catheter is removed is also not known. Presence of bacteria is a risk for infection which can increase patient morbidity. We want to investigate the rate of bacteria in the urine before and after catheter removal and the incidence of symptomatic urinary tract infection
