    I remember when I had a turp done 7 years ago.  If I was too active, yard work etc. I would urinate pink urine, and that was weeks after my surgery. Besides blood, I would discharge what looked like dark brown tissue.  It was all part of the healing process, was what I was told by my uro. Not easy or fun getting old at times!

    Hi. After my HoLep reduction it took 5 weeks for all bleeding to stop. The hospital said 3 days! It gradually slowed which gave me confidence it would eventually stop. It sounds like you may need to see the GP/Consultant

    After 8 weeks, yes you could query it, but also realise only a tiny pinprick of blood will quite colour a smallish amount of urine. The brown colour is to do with the normal mix of urea. You are bound to have  problems properly healing, because a cut on top of a healing scab from an earlier cut means low blood supply to the new scar. It wont arouse much interest from your uro.
