Bladder or Urethra Injury

Damage to the urinary bladder (the organ that stores urine manufactured by the kidneys) or the urethra (the tube through which urine travels from the bladder to the outside).

BODY PARTS INVOLVED

  • Muscles, tendons, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue of the pelvic floor.

Causes

Fracture of a pelvic bone that punctures or bruises the bladder or urethra (usually).

Signs & Symptoms

  • Severe abdominal pain and tenderness over the bladder.
  • Shock (sweating; faintness; nausea; panting; rapid pulse; pale, cold, moist skin).
  • Bloody discharge from the urethra or blood in the urine.

Treatment

First Aid

  • Immobilize the person on a stretcher or spine board.
  • Elevate the lower extremities with pillows or blocks.
  • Take the patient to the nearest emergency facility.

Home Diet

  • Drink 6 to 8 glasses of fluid daily.
  • Don't drink alcohol.
  • During recovery, eat a well-balanced diet that includes extra protein, such as meat, fish, poultry, cheese, milk and eggs. Increase fiber and fluid intake to prevent constipation that may result from decreased activity.
