18 days since turp surgery

Posted , 11 users are following.

it has been 18 days since surgery, light bleeding some days but not heavy. i am peeing every 45 minutes now and am hoping to start to process of getting better in that area. i see my doctor this Friday for my first follow up, it will give me a chance to discuss my progress or lack of it. i still have times of urgency and have to run to bathroom. so i do not know how i am doing i guess until i speak to doctor to discuss my symtoms. i was hoping by this time i would see a better change in my symtoms. Thanks for listening.

    RELAX....all is good.  The frequency will diminish.  Don't do any heavy lifting or straining.  Just relax, go to the bathroom when nature calls, and let your body heal.  These are normal symptoms.   Give it a few months and you will be pleased.  Happy New Year.

    Your jnsurance would not cover any other procedure than TURP because all the others have not stood the same test of time, even though TURP has the worst recovery time.

    Sounds like you are right on schedule.  I had turp close to seven weeks ago, all is good today.  I have been getting up once or twice during the night, that started geting better several weeks ago.  During the day I go about every two hours or so.  Time between bathroom visits gradually gets longer.  Time is a great healer if you let it.  No lifting or straining is the key to a good recovery.  So happy I had turp, what a blessing to be able to pee again.  Have a great New Year, good luck and a speedy recovery.

      Prior to turp I was blocked trying to pee when getting up at night.  I would have to walk around the house 10 to 15 minutes then I could pee but not really emptying my bladder.  Same would happen if I would sit at the movies or at home for more than an hour or so.  Bothered me most getting up 5 times or more at night and having to stay up each time.  I would have a hard time going back to sleep, sometimes I couldn't sleep at all.  Stream was so weak it seemd to take forever trying to dribble out what I could.  Such a blessing to be able to pee again.  I wake up ounce or twice a night to pee and get it done feeling like I emptied my bladder.  A minute or two later I'm back in bed falling fast asleep.  I finely feel rested when I get up in the morning.
