Re: how long did it take to get bladder control after turp
I entered the TURP club one and a half week ago, and I found this forum very helpful, as to what to expect and not be over optimistic about the healing progress.
As I'm 58 and a big portion of the prostate had to be removed (I had actually a TURis operation), I understand that progress may be in the slow side.
Nevertheless I guess things are not so bad, the main issue is a mild burning sensation which is always present and gets a little worse for some time after urination.
I passed quite some blood with clots two times on the 5th day post operation, a quite sterssfull experience, but since it became gradually clear.
(I had to endure a 2 hours ride with car as a passenger, the previous day).
I try to be on a cystitis diet, I suppose this may help as it affects the same area.
Also, I avoid sitting on chairs with convex seat, I always look for a flat or even better a concave seat.
Sleeping on my side I think it hepls, sometimes with a pillow between the knees.
Hope everyboby makes good progress
