Kidney Cyst Removal treatment depends on the size of the cysts and the problems caused by the cysts. There are two kidney cyst removal procedures that are most commonly used to treat simple kidney cysts:
Sclerotherapy: In this procedure, your doctor will insert a long needle under the skin to puncture the cyst and drain the fluid. A strong solution is then injected into the cyst to shrink it. This procedure can be repeated, if necessary.
Laparoscopic Surgery: In this procedure, your doctor will make three small incisions into the abdomen so that small surgical instruments can enter the abdomen and the kidney. Next your doctor will drains the cyst and then cuts or burns away the cyst itself.
You may experience mild pain at the incision sites, however, it is generally well controlled by the use of intravenous pain medication. A urinary catheter (also called foley catheter) is placed to drain your bladder at the time of surgery while you are asleep. This is in efforts to monitor your urine output over the first day or so following surgery.
Your diet will be advanced slowly following surgery from liquids to solids as tolerated. Your doctor may advise you to take only small amounts of liquids by mouth at any one time until you begin to pass flatus and your appetite returns.Learn Less
