Hello, I'm new to the forum. I had a TURP last Monday and all went well. I went in to the urologist's office on Wedndesday for catheter removal. It took time to be able to produce drips, then, the drips increased to small spurts, which was adequate for me to "pass." I urintated several times thereafter. Each time the stream was better. The last or next to last before going to bed at 10:00 PM was almost normal. By 3:30 AM Thursday morning I needed to urinate or pee, but, try as I could, without any straining, I had no positive result. True to my surgeon's instructions I went to the ER where they re-installed a catheter. I see the surgeon's nurse on Monday for removal of the catheter. Needless to say I am a little anxious about what things will be like on this go around. Has anyone experienced a situation. similar to mine? I don't understand why I went from being able to urinate to not being able to urinate at all. If anyone has had a similar experience I would love to learn about it. Thanks.
