| | Bladder Neck Contracture Laser Treatment
Does anybody have recent experience with Post-TURP bladder neck contracture that was treated with laser to remove scar tissue? I would be very interested to hear. In my case, TURP was performed in July 2011 with success in restoring good strong and steady flow. However, after three to four months, flow began to gradually reduce while frequency increased again – although not yet to the same degree as before TURP. I am now 10 months post-TURP and cystoscopy has confirmed bladder neck contracture due to scar tissue forming from the TURP surgery. Apparently this happens 3% of the time. I am 51-years old in very good health otherwise, and live in Southern Ontario. The Urologist plans to use laser to remove the scar tissue. This will be done under general anesthetic in a very short operation (less than 20 minutes), as day surgery meaning to go home right afterward, albeit with a catheter installed for about one day. The Urologist feels that immediate flow improvement will result and I should be back to normal activities (work, sports etc) within three to four days. How does this compare to anybody else’s experience? Any incontinence afterward?
