    I've been 4 weeks following TURP. The only issues have been minor such as passing blood clots and bleeding, usually just after urine flow cuts off. Also a burning sensation while peeing that intensifies towards the end of the stream. The urologist just grabbed another urine sample to see if I still have an infection (the one I've been hit with was enterobacter cloacae, which can be deadly). I had been on Foley catheters for over 3 months before the surgery with 100% blockage. Did you discuss the side effect of "retrograde ejaculation" with your urologist before/after surgery? One of the possibilities is that ejaculation is retrograde, meaning that it goes in the "opposite" direction and into the bladder. Doesn't mean you can't have sex but could mean, no children, from what I've read.

      I have a burning pain when peeing that escalates at the end. Oddly enough, I recently saw the time urinating go way down to 3-10 seconds (usually, 5 seconds) with an abrupt stop at the end followed by some bleeding. My Uro ran some tests and, in the 3 seconds, I am actually emptying my bladder completely. My Uro had also warned me about RE but, since Darlene passed away in 2016, I haven't been that active anyway.

    My uro said I could resume all normal activity after 3 weeks and I did with no issues. That was 49 weeks ago.
