Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


In 2017, I had emergency surgery for a blocked ureter and kidney. Despite the insertion of a stent, it remained blocked. Weekly interventions were required due to stent rejection. Following a severe snowmobile accident, I underwent extensive treatment, including multiple surgeries. Now, I'm experiencing erection issues.



Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


It is evident that you have endured a series of challenging medical interventions to address the obstructed ureter and kidney. The initial surgical intervention, aimed at stent placement, unfortunately did not resolve the underlying issue, necessitating further evaluation and intervention by a urologist. Subsequent procedures, including multiple stent insertions, were undertaken to manage the persistent blockage. The unfortunate occurrence of a snowmobile accident compounded your medical challenges, leading to extensive fractures and prolonged hospitalization.


Regarding your current concern about erection issues, it is imperative to recognize the potential impact of these complex medical interventions on your urogenital health. While treatments for ureteral obstruction typically focus on resolving the immediate urinary tract issues, it is crucial to consider the potential long-term effects on erectile function.


In addressing your concerns, it is recommended to explore a multidisciplinary approach involving consultations with both urological and erectile dysfunction specialists. This collaborative effort will enable a comprehensive assessment of your condition and the formulation of a tailored management plan that prioritizes both your urinary and erectile health.
