I had the procedure 1 week ago, a middle procedure. I have a very large prostate and it had grown into my bladder. I am 63 and very active male with a good sex life. I was able to pee prior to Turps but it was a real problem. Three docs said I should do it, I finally pull the trigger and at this point it has been nothing but misery. Lots of pain, bladder spasms, pee every hour if not sooner 50 to 100 cc's not enough. I have peed in my pants once. I cannot work. This is not a walk in the park, as this point I regret every minute of it. Docs make it sound so 1 night in hospital, going home with a cath take it out in a few days and viola your peeing like a horse..NOT! The spasms are the worse and you want to pee a gallon but just drips. I do not want to call him back because he will want to stick the God awful cath back in. Unless you are not peeing at all wait for a better idea this is not good. One caveat it has been only a week so I may come back with a different opinion in the future but I cannot afford to wait long. This sucked!
