Help... Need guidance... please
My father (age:65yrs) had TURP on 11th Jan 2012. Catheter/Irrigation was removed on 13th Jan 2012 morning. But due to retention, catherator provided on 13th Jan 2012 evening. The catheter removed on 23rd Jan 2012. After this, he was having stress incontinence (had urge to go after every 15 mins.), within few days developed infection and hence again hospitalised. He was administered with antibiotic and taken on Self Cathetarisation. As of now, sometimes he has dribbling, some times full control and some times self catheratorisation. He needs to go to bathroom every one hour and output varies between 50-150 ml. He was having BPH problem since last 2.5 yrs as he reveled after this surgery - a surprise for us.Presently, he is on medication and hospitalised. I have following question:
1. Does the above phenomena common after TURP? I mean dribbling with stress and urge incontinence both and low quantity of urination.
2. Has his bladder lost the capacity or become smaller? is this possible to loose bladder function after long period with BPH i.e. 2.5 years?
3. How much time does it take to recover from this ?
Any help in this matter will be highly helpful to my family. We are undergoing a lot of stress.
