New to the forum. Was catheterised due to retention of urine on 23 Jul 14
because of an enlarged prostate. I am 62 yrs of age, I am not happy to have the catheter on, but I have been told that it needs to stay in till I have my Turp operation.
I have been on the "waiting list" for almost 7 weeks, it seems strange to me that no priority is given to those on catheters.
It could be a while till I have my operation, does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can go about getting this operation on the NHS quicker rather than later?
And any views would be appreciated on the newer treatment called "Greenlight Laser".
