I'm returning here 6 months after surgery basically to repay the debt that I owe to a guy who told me to go ahead and have the TURP procedure. I'd struggled to pee for years and went into retention after a cystoscopy and I developed sepsis. Was in hospital on Gentamicin for just shy of a week. It was touch and go at first, but I was fortunate enough to pull through. I then had a long wait for a TURP op on the NHS (3 months). This was not a happy time as I was carting around a Foley catheter during this period. But things turned around completely when I had my operation.
I'm delighted - more than delighted - to tell you guys that the operation was a complete success. It was done on the NHS in England at Burnley Hospital and Mr Hosny was my surgeon. I can pee better now than at anytime in my life! Sex is great (just the same as it always was) and so far there are no issues apart from the first couple of weeks when I needed a Foley catheter for a few days and then when this was removed I was passing a little blood and micturating wasn't as easy as it became afterwards. I've held back from reporting this due to possible problems months down the line, which I've heard about before. But for me - so far so good.
If my operation was typical then all I can say is go and get the Bi Polar TURP. Well that is if your surgeon and his all important team happens to be the one that I was fortunate enough to get.
So far as me and my wife are concerned they did an excellent job.
