Bipolar TURP

Anyone have a bipolar TURP procedure?

I understand that it is faster recovery than standard monopolar TURP, but looking for confirmation.

What was recovery like and were there any complications, side effects?

If you know the pre-surgery size of your prostate, please include.

Thank you very much.  Mark

    Mark,

    i had one on June 1st. Stayed overnight and sent home with catheter that was removed on June 9th. Very little pain, catheter was uncomfortable but tolerable. Rest of my recovery time was uneventful. Worked regular 8 hours from June 4th. 

    I am very satisfied with my TURP.

      Mark, 

      only negative side effect was RE but I can live with that. Sex is still enjoyable and it last way longer then before. Orgasam is still strong and last longer with slightly different sensation. No mess works well for both my wife and I.

      My only problem is now prostate Ca Gleason 7b that I have to take care of.

      did not have any leakage of urine after TURP or during intercourse.

      Thanks.  Sorry about your new problem.  I hope that it works out as well as your bipolar TURP did.  Sounds like you have a good urologist.  Wish you the best.  Mark

    Sorry, forgot to mention. In my case TURP found prostate Ca Gleason 6 (3+3). Repeat biopsy on August 11 confirmed Ca but higher Gleason score 7b (4+3). 1 of 12 core come back positive.

    Now, most likely I will go with another surgery.
