I have just read a report in yesterday's daily mail (18/11/14) of a relatively new technique which is the same as TURP but uses electric current (TURis) instead of thermal heat. Time in hospital is reduced to 1 day instead of the 2-3 days for TURP and to those who bleed a lot or have thin blood like me it was 5 days.It apparently reduces bleeding and the TUR syndrome (that some patients may experience) as it uses saline instead of Glycine to wash urethra during operation.If there are any patients that have had TURis it would be beneficial to all to have your experiences.
