    First and foremost, cystolithotripsy is the removal of stones in the bladder; could be through crushing, destruction or removal. But, in my patient case it is removal.

    Can anyone give me two priority nursing diagnosis after the surgery/ post-operative?

    I'm torn between:
    -Acute Pain because of the surgery. pain score: 9/10, 4 hours after the surgery.
    -Risk for infection because of the surgery, too. Her WBCs are high.

    Can you add more?
    Or suggest what should be prioritize more?

    Thanks.
