Here is an overview of my Hoelp surgery.... I am a 52yr old male..Tampa, FL, .BPH for my entire life. Frequency and urgency for most of my life. Kept getting worse. Last year everything stopped and had to get foley cath 3 different times. Last one had to stay in the whole month before Holep surgery. BPH biopsy showed no cancer just a huge prostate. Holep surgery on Jan.02,2019. Prostate size was 75 grams, DR. removed 45 grams. Surgery went well. My Dr, leaves cath in longer than most. Cath removed on Jan 09, 6 days later. Today is 10 days after Holep surgery and 4 days after removal of cath. Stats,,, after cath removed.... High frequency to urinate, about every 45 minutes.... Starts with 1 or 2 drops of blood then a hard normal stream. Pain level is about a 6 from start to finish then have an radiating pain inside for 2 minutes. Then pain stops and I feel normal until next time I pee. Only 4 days out after cath removal but pain seems to be less everyday. I have had 0% urine leakage from day 1. Possibly due to my age? I am lucky there. Just pain every time I pee. Every once in a while I get a pain twinge inside but only lasts for 1 second, healing inside I would guess. I have not ejaculated yet probably way to soon? But I have "tested the waters". Only 3 days out I know I can get 100% rigid. But it hurts and spots of blood on the tip. I will hold off as long as I can because I know it will hurt the first time but I know now it is still going to work. Not known yet if I will have retrograde orgasms but I prepared if they are. Hope this helps anyone new to Holep. I am looking for your experience the first few weeks after surgery. I go back to work in 2 weeks and have a high physical job. I hope most of the pain and frequency are gone by then. Feel free to ask any questions for input and help. I am not shy as you can see. God bless.
