Hi, I had a failed Urolift about 17 months ago and a mini TURP about 5 weeks ago. Since the TURP I had to be re-catheterised for a week and have had two infections. The latest was treated with the dreaded CIPRO and I await a test result to see if I am now clear of infection. The uro said he completely removed one of the urolift clips; both ends and all the cord. He said he got the other end through a hole in the prostatic capsule.
My question is about bleeding. I still get blood at the start of urination and it hasn't really improved much over the 5 weeks. Most times it is just a little colouration of the urine at the start but at other times I can pee a more darker coloured urine for a couple of seconds and once recently there was bright red blood at the start. Is this normal ? I read that bleeding can occur for up to 6 weeks so assume it is but just wanted to check on other people's experiences. I also have some pain in the pelvic region around where I think the Urolift clip was but presume it took some 'digging' to get it out and hoping it will heal up OK. It already feels better than when the clip was in. (Note the clip was at 6 '0 clock through the median lobe).
Thanks for any replies and experiences.
