In order to relieve discomfort after the ureteroscopy, you should drink two eight-ounce glasses of water, each hour, for two hours. You should also ask your doctor if you can take a warm bath to help relieve the burning feeling or if you can hold a warm, damp washcloth over the urethral opening.
After a ureteroscopy, your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic to take for one or two days that helps to prevent an infection. Call your doctor immediately if you experience any signs of infection, such as pain, chills, or fever.
