hi i'm 69 & had acute urine retention due to BPH.
the urologist said it would be unlightly that my bladder would function properly again but suggested i have turp procedure anyway.
i had a foley permanently for over 2 1/2 years & although i was spared uti's the cath regularly blocked so much so that i become obcessed with checking the leg bag every 15 minutes or so - strangely it always blocked between 2 & 4am & i had to endure the excuciating pain sometimes for 2 hours until the DN saved me.
fast forwarding to now - i had the turp last sept &
thankfully (a gross understatement) i've had no probs.
i just can't believe my luck.
however, now every time i go to the bathroom i get really stressed out in case i can't go & to be honest it's all i continually think about..
surely this cannot be normal?
