    Most people do fine with TURP. Its just higher risk/longer recovery than is necessary given the newer procedures.

    Had TURP in June 2016. Recovered quickly and had sex on post op day 14 with RE.

    Enjoyment did not lost for long. TURP found prostate Ca and had RARP in November 2016.

      Tom,

      post TURP, I was diagnosed with Gleson 6. Later, 2 months after TURP, I had TRUS biopsy and was diagnosed with Gleason 7 (4+3) - 1 of 12 positive 15%.

      As mentioned earlier, had RP on 11/2/16. After surgery I was downgraded to 3+4 and Cancer was present bilaterally pT2c.I recovered urinary control by the end of 3 months and I am 99% continent with some stress incontinece when I am physically active.

      As for recovery of erectile function, I did not have any success despite extensive penile rehab using Cialis and Viagra, VED and injections. I used TRIMIX and it was giving me penile pain on days I used it. Now, using BIMIX with no pain. I had significant los of length of 2+ inches and loss of girth also. I am getting erection using BIMIX but I do not have enough of length to stay in v...na constantly slipping out so mainly I stop trying.

      Still now, 17 months post RP which was nerve sparing according to my surgeon, I did not experienced anything spontaneous. No signs of life in my penis and it continues to atrophy.

      I was diagnosed with Prostate Ca at age of 51. I am in excellent shape, very active, non smoker and non drinker, not overweight. 

      In January 2018 diagnosed with low testosterone.

      Have nothing good to say about the Turp Procedure.  There are so many others to pick that are much better and less of a ordeal.  But that was your choice.  I wish you well and I help you get better soon.  If you have any more problem keep bugging your doctor.  I will add you to my prayer list  Ken

    Forums like this usually only attract posters who have had problems. Also the No way would I have it is being repeated by quite a small number of posters but repeatedly. As a point of interest has any American President had a TURP?

    British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan did and used it as a part reason for his resignation as he thought he had cancer:

    In October 1963 Macmillan suddenly developed a prostate problem and his resignation as prime minister swiftly followed. The two were not, however, inevitably linked, as Alistair Lexden pointed out in a letter published on September 21 in reply to comments by The Daily Telegraph’s medical correspondent.

    SIR--James Le Fanu (Health, September 19) errs in saying that Harold Macmillan was “persuaded to retire” as prime minister in October 1963 as a result of his prostate trouble, a condition that was entirely benign.

    Macmillan was under no pressure to resign. His doctors told him that he would make a quick and complete recovery after surgery. Nevertheless, he reversed his decision to stay on to the next election which he had made clear to the Palace on 7 October.

    His surgeon, Alec Badenoch, recorded that Macmillan used his illness “as a vehicle for resignation in order to extricate himself from an increasingly difficult political position”, telling Badenoch: “it came as manna from heaven—an act of God”.
