Very Fatigued after TURP surgery

Posted , 6 users are following.

I had my gall bladder removed in July and in Sept I had a TURP, which is a resection of the prostrate, that is only a week ago now, but I'm getting more and more fatigued every day, is this common? I go for walks all the time, is there anything I can take to "liven" myself up?

    Mike, I think you reaslly need to discuss this with your primary care physician, as well as with your urology surgeon.  I remember my mom's gall bladder surgery, and that took a lot of her, so your combination of two surgeries in short order had to be a challenge to your own body.

      I'm getting back to normal and got my first day back at the gym this morning at 6:00 am, so feeling quite good. Things have settled down alot and it just takes time to really recover from 2 major surgeries. Time heals all.

    Hello Mike.

    You may want to get your "T" # checked out.   I recently got the urolift but about 6 mos before I had the same kind of symptoms and my testerone level was very low.   Started with a bi weekly shot which totlally got me back on track!   Now i am going in next week to get the "testopel".    Check it out,   if you are in teh 200s   you are too low!

    Good Luck!

      Thanks for your reply and yes, my body has been thru alot the past 6 months actually, and its going to take time to recover. I'm taking it easy, and this morning I got a call from the surgeon and the pathlogy report showed "no cancer", so thats great. I can drive again and have to keep aware if the stream starts to slow down, or i might end up with astricture. Which can also be dealt with to widen the urtheral.

    I guess the body needs more time to recover - too surgeries in a space of three months is a challenge to the body. I underwent three surgeries so far on average after every three years and I found my body challenge after each surgery. I believe you will recover with more time.
