TUIP Procedure hurts when I wee. 5 weeks later.

Posted , 6 users are following.

Maybe someone out there has had a similar issue. I would appreciate any advice I can get.

I was diagnosed with BPH enlarged prostate. Which was interfering with my bladder neck, causing me to go to the toilet 3 times an hour. I was given the TUIP (Turp Variant) procedure as it was less invasive. After the operation optimistically hoping for some improvement.  5 weeks later my penis stings/hurts like mad as I urinate. I still have to go to the toilet constantly only now it hurts. There is a constant stinging pain in the tip of my penis which when i urinate causes a nervous spasm from my anus to my fingertips (I am not making this up)!  I am guessing I might have a blood clot trapped in my penis. It is another 3 weeks before I'm due back to see the doc. There is still occasionaly some blood after ejaculation. Do I need to tough it out? 5 weeks after the op I am still to see an improvement.

    Hi Simon,

    Not familiar with TUIP recovery, but always a good idea to check for UTIs, especially after a procedure like this. I'd do this now rather than wait.

    The urethra suffers a lot of trauma during the procedure but you should be past that stage by now. It is good that you can ejaculate as the bladder neck is the area that problem is associated with.

    Did you have a course of antibiotics post surgery?

    Call the doc. There's alot of stretching associated with these procedures. Doc can also run a Cath up there to move a clot if it's blocking you up. Sounds like you may have a infection or something.

    hi, i had a TUIP in march 2015, and it went well, i was told by all!!....but for 6-8weeks  after the op i has various sensations  in my private`s both before during and after urinating!, whilst out walking ( early recovery) and later back cycling i was still peeing every 30 mins!! this went on for months and a full bladder feeling...all very odd. i did start drinking a lot of water ?? more peeing!! saw the family doc, he said normal, ,checked for UTI`s, none,  no blockages, i stopped all sorts of foods, no wine or fizzy drinks, no electrolytic drinks(they are the worst for the bladder i now know) i don`t drink beer os spirits, all to no effect!! after 3 months i went back to specialist for post op etc etc, i asked the questions>>>>" whats with these feelings?" he said time will settle it all down!! well i suppose he was right, but every so often now i get a phntom "FEELING"... a light stinging before peeing, ok afterwards for a while then back it comes!! the frequency is reducing and the length of the feeling is now no more than 48hrs.. however this has never been explained!!.. but as with other posts, go see your doc, check for UTI`s, and blockage!!, but it will take time....... good luck, Syd

    Hello all,

    thanks for your replies. Other peoples experience help a lot. I thought I would update the post as my situation has moved on since I posted.

    I have since been diagnosed with Overactive Bladder and prescribed Betmiga which is a relatively new drug. 

    My symptoms have reduced and died down for now.
