- Pelvic support: A very large cystocele, protruding about 2 cm past introitus, was noted when the patient bared down. An enterocele, small, was involved as well. No rectocele noted.
- Urinalysis and culture if needed- To rule out infection causing urinary incontinence (Shenot, 2021).
- CBC- This test measures the patient’s blood cells, can provide information about infections from the WBC, and blood health. This patient had a history of DIC, so baseline would be important to monitor.
- CMP- to measure kidney function with BUN and creatinine levels (Shenot, 2021).
Primary and Differential Diagnoses
Cystocele: This is the bladder prolapsing into the vagina most often due to a weak pelvic floor, vaginal births, and pelvic surgery all can contribute to damage of the pelvic tissue and nerves (Makajeva, Watters, & Safioleas, 2022). In this case, the cystocele was viewed during the physical exam. Other ways to assess for the prolapse is by the pelvic exam or by use of radiologic exams to view abnormalities in the pelvis (Dr. Lin, 6/27/22, personal interview).
Enterocele- This is prolapse of the intestines through the abdominal as in a hernia but through the pelvic floor as well. A likely cause is from increased intra-abdominal pressure with a weakened pelvic floor unable to support the structures from prolapsing (Aziz et al., 2021). In this patient, an enterocele was visualized during the physical exam.
Urinary incontinence – the patient has mixed urinary incontinence from possibly many factors. Her age, hysterectomy with BSO which contributed to menopause, two pregnancies contributing to weak pelvic floor and possible urethra injury all can play a role in her incontinence (Alperin et al., 2019).
The primary diagnosis for this patient is the cystocele. It is reasonable to believe that her symptoms of pain, irritation, and urinary incontinence were coming from the cystocele (Dr. Lin, 6/27/22, personal interview). Through counseling of available options for her symptoms, this patient chose to have an anterior colporrhaphy, sacrospinous ligament suspension (right-sided only) to correct her cystocele and enterocele. Her Estrace was stopped and she is currently only taking her allergy medications. Start cephalexin 500 mg po QID x 5 days post-surgery. Start oxycodone-acetaminophen 5-325 mg tablet, 1 tablet po QID PRN for pain x 14 days.
Referral: This patient was referred to gynecology for her urinary incontinence and cystocele. Her procedure, anterior colporrhaphy, sacrospinous ligament suspension and cystoscopy was performed by my preceptor in the OR not the clinic. He performed a cystoscopy afterwards to examine the ureters and bladder.
Lab: Prior to surgery, the above mentioned CBC, CMP, and urinalysis were obtained to monitor the patient’s homeostasis prior to surgery and verify if she would be able to have surgery. Labs drawn the day after surgery were a CBC with a WBC count of 12.2 likely elevated due to the surgery, pathology is still pending on the tissue sent from the surgery.
Health Promotion: 1) Screening for osteoporosis is recommended for all women over the age of 65. 2) Exercise of interventions to prevent falls is recommended for all community-dwelling adults over the age of 65 (Prevention TaskForce, 2022).
Education: 1) No lifting greater than 20 pounds for 3 weeks. 2) May use a sitz bath BID for 2 weeks. 3) No driving on pain medications. 4) Call the clinic for any complaints or concerns.
Disposition: Discharged home post-op day 1, Follow up at clinic in 2 weeks.
This case was very interesting because there was several thing that could have caused her incontinence. Some of the treatments for urinary incontinence would be approved for the advanced practice nurse practitioner (APRN) to provide. In cases without a cystocele, medications and physical therapy for pelvic floor strengthening are within the scope of practice for the APRN. In this case, her referral to a gynecologist that does urology studies and surgeries was warranted for a pessary fitting or surgery. I learned a lot about management of urinary incontinence. Patient education about options for treatment and using the shared decision making process.
