How Long Is The Recovery Time After Seed Implantation?

Dr. Kuettel answers the question: 'Recovery Time After Seed Implantation?'

March 16, 2009 -- Question: How long is the recovery time after seed implantation?

Answer: In our experience, patients go home the same day of the procedure. As far as recovery time, I tell patients that the acute side effects, although minimal, may last up to two to six weeks following the implant itself. These side effects can include increased urinary frequency, urgency, hesitancy and getting up more frequently at night to urinate.
