My urologist has scheduled a TURP Surgery for next Wednesday, August 3rd so I must decide fast what my next step will be.....Has anyone on this website tried any other bladder/prostate treatments and had success?....My bladder Stop Emptying Voluntarily after I had a negative reaction to anthesia for a lung operation on June 15th. ...The urologist tried several Trial Voids, but None worked...Last Friday, the urologist ran a Uro Dynamics Test on my bladder muscle which indicated that it was very weak...The urologist "hopes": the TURP would "remove sufficient tissue blockage" of my urethra by my "swollen prostate" so as to allow the urethra to them "empty my bladder"...Currently, I have a "direct bag catheter" thai I empty several times per day..The urologist states that if I don't have the TURP, my only options left will be the "direct catheter" or "me inserting a catheter" every time I need to pee...This "Patient Article" indicates there might be several other "treatment options" including "laser surgery"...Any Suggestions would be beneficial... .
