Turp Recovery

Posted , 5 users are following.

Went for TURP today (October 1st) because I felt I could not wait 'till the 8th and the doctor had a cancellation on the 1st to fit me in. I told everyone I quit baby aspirin 5 days prior when the requirement is really 7 days.

As I sit here typing, I'm bleeding like a pig.

Moral: Don't mess with 81 mg aspirin if you're getting TURPED.

    "Bleeding like pig" brought back recent memories of me visiting a new optometrist shortly after having a Foley cath removed post-TURP. I had packed my underwear with paper towels but had no idea I'd dribble blood and clots for 3 hours during which I sat in an eye exam chair. My urologist said in the relative sense, it's not that much blood. Well, it was for me!
