Last Thursday (7days ago) I got the urolift done. I went home with a catheter. I removed it the next day but was unable to pee. Just thick brown blood clots and debris in trickles.
Went back to doctors and they put another foley catheter in and sent me home for 3 days.
Went back to doctors to have this one removed and later was able to void. Burned but was able to go with no straining to start a flow. In fact it didn't take a lot of effort. My urethra and prostate were and are sore. Feels like swelling to me. I don't know.
Today is the 7th day and I'm drinking about 8 glasses of water and earlier this morning peed a few times ok.
Now at 4:00 PM it's harder to go and the stream is weaker and it hurts. Is this part of what you go through after this operation. I expected it to continue getting better or is this happening because of the catheters I had and the irritation caused from it in addition to the prostate and urethra healing. Ihope this is just part of this healing process. When I'm sitting I feel like I always have to go.
