You will be put under general anaesthetic before the laparoscopic pyeloplasty procedure. This will mean that you are asleep and will ensure that you don't feel any pain or discomfort during the operation.
During the laparoscopic pyeloplasty, the surgeon will make several small incisions in your abdomen. Through these incisions they will insert a laparoscope, which is a thin tube with a camera and light attached to it, along with specialised instruments for performing surgery. Using the camera, the surgeon will be able to see inside your abdomen to guide their hands during surgery without making a large incision.
The surgeon will then identify the narrowed or blocked section of the ureter and cut out the affected area. The healthy ends of the ureter will then be reconnected using sutures or a stent.
After a laparoscopic pyeloplasty, you may need to stay in the hospital for a few days for observation. You may experience some pain and discomfort in the abdominal area, but this can be managed with pain medication. The small incisions will also need time to heal, and you may need to avoid heavy lifting or strenuous activity for a few weeks after the surgery.
It's important to follow your surgeon's instructions regarding post-operative care to ensure a smooth and successful recovery.
Remember, every patient is unique, and your laparoscopic pyeloplasty experience may differ. Your surgeon will discuss the details of your surgery with you beforehand and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
There are several alternatives to laparoscopic pyeloplasty, including open surgery and endoscopic surgery. Your consultant will discuss the best options for you based on your specific needs and medical history.
After laparoscopic pyeloplasty, you will be taken to the recovery room and monitored closely for several hours until you are awake and alert. You may feel some pain or discomfort in the incision sites, and you will likely have a catheter in place to drain urine from your bladder. Your healthcare team will provide you with instructions on how to care for yourself after surgery and what to expect during your recovery.
After laparoscopic pyeloplasty, you will need to rest and avoid strenuous activities for several weeks. You may need to take pain medication and antibiotics to prevent infection.

It's important to follow these instructions closely and attend all follow-up appointments to ensure a successful recovery.
