I just want to thank everyone who followed and contributed in my earlier discussion " MY BPH EXPERIENCE".
I had my TURP on June 1, 2016. Procedure went well, in OR less than 2 hours. Got pictures from my urologist with before and after surgery. Stayed overnight in
hospital. Did not have much pain at all and had 3-way catheter for continius bladder irrigation. Did not bleed much. Next morning urologist came to see me and removed catheter. With voiding trial I did not have much luck. My first PVR was 335 and 2nd PVR went to 425 and I already felt I won't go home without catheter. Started urinating about every 5-10 minutes very small amounts of urine less or about 100 ml. Nurse checked 3rd time my PVR and it was over 500 ml. Urologist ordered catheter to be inserted and I could be discharged home. Came back home orotund 4 pm on Thursday June 2nd. Dealing with catheter, tubing and bag is different story or better said "pain in the neck" and I dealt with that for 8 days until my appointment with urologist on June 9th. I worked on Saturday June 4th and regularly after that. I am very lucky to have job from home. Sitting was fairly uncomfortable but I managed to work every day 8-9.5 hrs.
Than, come time to see urologist on June 9th at 3 pm. Went to get my wife from her work place and we headed to urologist office. After I was checked in, was placed in the room and nurse feeled my bladder with about 400 ml of fluid than she removed catheter and left me in the room to urinate. Soon after I was able to empty my bladder very quickly and urinated 500 ml of urine so I passed voiding trial this time.
Minutes later, urologist came in and ask about recovery and how I feel after catheter removal. We talked about procedure and what to expect on the road of recovery.
Than comes huge and unexpected very negative surprise:
Urologist told my wife and I that my patohystological report came back and it is POSITIVE FOR PROSTATE CANCER in one of the prostate chips GLEASON 6 (3+3) 4% T1a. I was speechles for couple of minutes and same was my wife.
Urologist told us about plan to do biopsy of the prostate but we have to wait at least 3 months until everything heals and scheduled appointment in September to see him again and than we will plan biopsy.
I am still in shock.
i would like to hear if anyone had similar experience.
