TURP & Non Bacterial Prostatisis

Posted , 7 users are following.

What would the expected recovery be if a TURP op was carried out on a prostrate already with non bacterial prostatisis. I have now been diagnosed with this & the biopsy from my prostrate chip confirmed swelling of the prostrate.

I'm now 5 weeks post op & my recovery has been a horror story & is still on going

    Depends on the individual and how much material removed.

      I would not have thought the amount removed makes any difference you are irritating a swollen gland. If you have a swollen ankle image the pain slicing a piece off and some

      I had turp twice. First time he removed alot of material. Second time he had to remove very little. It closed back up. I had no pain in my prostate at all. Only pain I felt was that garden hose they called a catheter. First time it bled for a couple months. Second time a couple days maybe. I didn't take the pain pills. It didn't hurt so I figured why deal with the constipation from them. All I have to do is look at Vicodin and I am constipated.

    I had TURP 9 weeks ago and I’m still experiencing pain at times and bladder spasms too.

    It’s a long recovery and very depressing as well.

    I feel like I’m less of a man today because of the RG too.

    Good luck on your recovery.

      "  I feel like I’m less of a man today because of the RE too "

      Perhaps you should have counselling for that. It is going to be like forever and you need to find acceptance for it or it may affect your sex drive as well. .

      Not being able to squirt semen out of your penis, does not make you less a man.  OTOH, shirking your financial or emotional duties does. 

      Did your doctor prescribe anything for the bladder spasms?  I've had them for almost 20 years and oxybutinen helps mitigate them (although does not entirely eliminate them).

      Far to sore to even think about ejaculation all I got for bladder spasms was buscapan (Now stopped) & now on diazepam for the anxiety. Also on qurcetin, bee pollen, turmeric, omega 3 fish oil & probiotic. Only a few days in on this. Also for the past 3 weeks I've completely removed all researched foods that aggravate the prostrate. I'll let you no if it works

      Also as for the money side I was unfortunate enough to break my foot 7 weeks pre TURP op so now been out of work for 12 weeks relying on SSP if I'd known what to expect post op I would never have had it done. I didn't do much research & believed what I was told by urologist 4 weeks recovery he said. The pain is still debilitating 5 weeks on all I can do is be thankful for such a supportive family. Just home after a 10 day hospital stay it's difficult not to feel anxious when I've been told by urologist if I go back into retention I will need to go to theatre for catheter.

    Hi Shane,

    Could the pain be the prostatitis you say you have, rather than the Op itself ?As I don’t believe the Turp will help with that condition . I can certainly see that having prostatitis would slow the recovery time . When I’ve had a simple DRE while suffering with prostatitis it’s hurt like hell for a couple days . Diazapan may help , it does for me , when the prostatitis flares up .
