Re: how long did it take to get bladder control after turp
I dont know if I am the right person to help you as I am a Man. Only to say that I have over the last year been diagnosed with Bladder Cancer, Had all the Scans and undergone all the treatment successfully following a diognosis of Bladder cancer, which is now fully cleared !!.
Firstly you ask what is a TURP. If you google "TURP" you will find a mass of information about it, basically it is an electrical seering of the neck of the bladder of any build up of "Crap" or obstructions; also other areas that the consultant is suspect of. It is not a painful procedure, but it has it's discomfort areas, also afterwards you will have to run to the "Loo" for a couple of weeks.
With regards to the scans, these are once again painless, they will highlight any suspect areas in the bladder. If suspect areas are found, then a biopsy will be taken later; this will be sent off to the lab for diognosis as to whether it is benign or malignant. If it is the latter, then you will be told, and a treatment plan will be given to you. If you read my profile, it may help you. Otherwise if you need any more help put in a friendship request and we can discuss your fears privately by email.
All I can say now you have time, so calm down and do your research, prior to any treatment, in order that you can ask your consultant the right questions and get the right treatment for yourself.
All the best, Kindest Regards.
