I'm 4 weeks on tomorrow from my HoLEP surgery at Newcastle, UK and am pleased to say that I'm continuing to be very pleased with the improvements that this has given me. These last few days there has been no blood in my urine and had no scabs of any sort. I'm getting 2 or 3 nights where I sleep through and on other days just need to get up once. I do make sure I have a final pee after my 30 mins read. I was expecting to have RE but to my very pleasant surprise things have starting to work again this week. I didn't even as ask my consultant about RE as I just assumed it would happen.
in my case, I understand why so much emphasis is put on the exercising of the pelvic floor muscles. Sometimes when I'm in the house and put off going for a pee for too long, I then get a desperate urgency to pee and one needs to be able to hang on until getting to the toilet., hence the need for pelvic muscles to be working well. This never happens when I'm outside and is becoming less of a problem with time.
In conclusion, I would say I'm as near normal as I've ever been and should have had the op sooner and am grateful for the skill of my surgeon and the care I got at the hospital. My 36 hours there was more of a jolly than an ordeal.
