My hubby had his HoLEP procedure 10 days ago. Apart from some stinging when they removed the catheter out (less than 24 hrs after the op) for the first 3 trips to the toilet, and he has had NO pain. The bleeding stopped after 8 days. We were led to believe it may be several weeks/months before his bladder would be sorted enough to not have to dash to the toilet, but this has not happened.
I just wanted to let you know because there seems to be quite a lot of negativity around this procedure but we can only say good things about the surgeon (Tev Aho at Addenbrookes) and the outcome. Everything is working as it should and hopefully will continue to do so. We were told that the likelihood of him going into retention again is virtually nil, although they can't 'guarantee' it. Also, the chances of him having to have a further procedure due to regrowth of the prostate is virtually nil because of the way the laser works, unlike TURP.
It is only 2 weeks since the op, we know that, but we're hoping all continues well for the future.
Relief for us both at last.
