Recovery time after TURP

I had the TURP procedure 3 1/2 weeks ago,and although the bleeding has stopped,I still have to get up 4-5 times a night,even though I don;t drink anything after 6pm.Is this a normal,am I not giving it enough time to "kick" in?
After reading some of the posts,it seems that 4 to 6 weeks is a normal time to start to feel good again,does this mean that gradually things will settle down,so that I can get it down to perhaps 1 or 2 times a night?

Flog

Urology

I had a TURP procedure done 3 1/2 weeks ago.Everything seems to be healing ok,(bleeding has stopped),urgency improving daily,but I'm still getting up 4 or 5 times a night to void the bladder.
I'm hopeful things will improve in that area as well,but I'm wondering,am I expecting too much too soon?How long should I wait before seeing my urologist if this persists? He said to come back to see him in 3 or 4 months
What would be the "normal" time period to expect a good nights' rest?

Thanks for any advice

Re: Urology

Hi I also had a TURP 7 weeks ago and everything went
very well, however I am going to the toilet now frequently.
Does this settle down?
Mind you it was mooted
that I may have a over active bladder.
Like you I had the expected blood with the urine in little
amounts for about 4-5 weeks. This was to be expected.


Thanks.

My procedure was done almost a year ago,and 6 months later,nothing had changed.My urologist order more tests and after reviewing he said everything was normal,that I had an overactive bladder,and there was nothing more he could do.Now it is almost a year later and I still have to get up every 2 hours to void my bladder.During the day,it's pretty much ok.I guess it;s something I'll have to live with.Even if a second opinion suggested another turp procedure,I wouldn't do it again.Good Luck to you,hopefully your's will clear up

Thank you. I expect it will take time. Apparently from reading the
health forum it varies for different individuals.
I'm glad I had the TURP. Now I'm in and out of the bathroom in jig time
whereas before the procedure it would take an age. At the latter stages
I was retaining too much fluid and consequently I got ongoing
infections. So now I can't really complain.

Thank you.
