I'm 44 years old and I wrote about my problems in another post. BHP in a small prostate but it was giving me a lot of problems because it pressed my bladder a lot. My urofluxometries were terrible (qmax 3 mL/s).
I was in tamsulosin for 6 months and I hadn’t any improvement, so TURP was the only solution in the country I live.
The surgery was made 2 weeks ago. It was bipolar TURP. They put me spinal block and the procedure lasted about 40 minutes. They cut 10 grams of the prostate. No pain at all. I was taken to hospital room with a 3 way catheter inside. No pain or discomfort at all. I had connected a big bag of saline solution that washed my bladder all the time and it was replaced when it was empty. From time to time, nurses had to empty another bag with the liquid coming out of the catheter and they examined it (looking for blood, residues, color and the urine produced by myself.)
They gave me paint killers and anti-spasmodic medicine all the time I spent in the hospital, so no pain or discomfort at all.
Next day, as everything was ok, doctor asked me to start walking. As I started to do it (and to go to the toilet for defecation) a bit more of bleeding was present in the urine but doc said it was as expected and to not be worried about it. Third day at the hospital they put the catheter off. I still was bleeding when peeing, but doc said it was normal. Fourth day I was sent home.
At home I was asked to drink a lot of water (3-4 L daily) to help with the bleeding and for cleaning the bladder.
I took ketoprofen for 3 days but I only experienced a little discomfort when emptying my bladder so I stopped taking any drug.
Bleeding has been improved day after day as I. Has done the pain. I expulse big clots from time to time and that it’s a bit painful, but nothing terrible.
After TURP I was a bit disappointed with my flow (I expected to be better) but it was because the inflammation and the clots. Flow has been improving day after day too and when my bladder is full and I’ve no clots the flow is really much much better than previous to surgery.
Biopsy was ok.
So tomorrow 2 weeks will have passed and I’m pretty happy with the surgery. I had control with the doc 2 days ago and everything perfect.
I do all my daily activities without problem (avoiding making strength) and I’ve been driving my car and going out for shopping etc.
I go to the toilet about every 40 minutes but doc gave a medicine that expands the time to and hour or more). Not urine leaked or incontinence.
Ah! And my erections are perfect. I had the first one the same night I had the surgery (it was a bit painful with the catheter inside urging) and I ve got a lot more all the days. I mean, my penis is working as god as always. No sex yet for a month, so we’ll see the performance. I know I will get (almost 95% sure) retrograde ejaculation, but I was advised before surgery and I was ok with it. Tamsulosin produced that effect too (most of the days and time, not always) so I’m used to it. My orgasms were just the same so I expect the same now.
Well, that’s all! I’m very happy with the procedure at the moment. I’ll tell you how it’s going for the next weeks.
Thank you very much for reading!!
