A month or so ago I asked for some advice about a TURP on this site so thank you again for all those who responded.
I had the operation on 24 April and still couldn't pee so was on a catheter again for two weeks. There is around a 40% chance of this if a patient presents with chronic or acute urinary retention - I had both. The catheter was out on May 11 and I was able to void resonably well although much better at night than during the day. On the first night post catheter I was up to pee 9 times, the next night 5, and last night 3. I have no post operative pain but the only thing that really motivates voiding are "stomach cramps" in the bladder but these are less painful now. Today I am totally knackered due to lack of sleep. My urolog has signed me off until 27 June with light duties until the end of July. I like to run, walk in the mountains, and ride my bike - what is it like getting back into action after 6 months off? Would welcome comments. I am 70.
