As some of you may know I had my Turp done on May 24th of this year. Doing my due diligence I was very hesitant to opt for the Turp, from what I read here. However, because of my finances, insurance and the fact my prostate tissue was migrating into my bladder, I really did not have much choice other than a Turp.
Recovery from the Turp was not easy. I had a reaction to the anaesthetic, which left me on my back for close to a week. It induced migraines and I couldn't keep anything down. Then I was having difficulty voiding without the Foley. I had the Foley in and out for months prior to and after the Turp operation. It seems my bladder got "lazy." I had to retrain my bladder. Now I'm able to void, not like a teenager but with a respectable flow. I just self-catheter once a day before bed. My Urologist wants me to do this for another 30 days. But most amazing I don't suffer from retrograde ejaculation. Frankly I couldn't father a child with the amount of my ejaculate, but it's definitely not retrograde either.
So a Turp in the hands of a skilled surgeon worked out very well for me indeed, Denis
