Good Morning all. I am pist off today and I just have to write this because I hope no other men go through this. It is a mans right to have any procedure he picks if he is well informed. Well I have a friend that he daughters boyfriend is having surgery on Tuesday. I ask her what kind is he having she told me I think it's called a TURP. Well you guys know me Not a fan but if that is what you deside go for it. Now he came in and he is about 60. Had to have a catheter put in because he can't pee. I ask him if a Turp is what he is having he said yes I ask what did the doctor tell you about it. He told me that he is going in with a little toll and make a small hole. I ask him if he looked at the video. He told me no. I said that they are going in and are going to cut out at lease 80% of his prostate. I ask him if the doctor told him about the side effects leaking, bleeding. incontinence pain and retro ejaculation. He ask me what was that. He then told me that the doctor told him that all will be the same and there will be no change I told him that he should have ran for the hills. I ask him what type of test the doctor gave him to determine that his prostate is the problem. I ask how big was it. He said none and he has no idea. He just had a catheter for 2 weeks because he could not pee. I ask him did you get a second opinion he told me no. He is taking this doctor word that he has only seen for 2 weeks. I told him and his girlfriend he is rushing into surgery because he does not want to were a catheter and he is in pain. He is letting the symptoms push him into surgery. I think his prostate is fine and he has a problem is his bladder. But you can not tell him anything. I wish him well but he deserve anything he get. I feel sorry for his girlfriend because she is going to have to put up with him. My reason for writing this is that please men don't get pushed into any surgery without having all the test to determine what the problem is because once you start cutting away at the prostate there is no getting it back.. There are so many other procedures out there that may work just as good. Even CIC can help. Many men have healed there bladder and did not have to have surgery. Thank you all and I hope you have a very nice and healthy Easter Ken
