Hello everyone reading this. myself and my brother and two sisters and in need of this communities help.
Our dad is a physically fit 85 year old with full mobility. He has issues with short term memory and can become quite anxious which obviously makes things worse. He was fitted with a catheter in april this year which has been a tough adjustment for him. We generally take care of it for him.
we have a appointment with a consultant next week and he has been given the option of continuing with catheter with the view to learning how to self catherterise, or have a procedure. Turp has been recommended.
We are keen to learn how elderly people with similar health status recover from Turp. We worry that post op complications would be really tough for my dad to cope with and it could set his mental health back a lot. its taken ages for him to come to terms with the catheter and we still have misshaps with it.
Im running out of time bow so can add more info later. Please let me know what your experience is and feel free to offer advice and ask questions.
