Bipolar Vaporization TURP procedure
I had prostate surgery using Bipolar Vaporization TURP procedure done on Friday, July 6, 2012. I am on my tenth day after surgery and I donít seem to be getting much better. My urine stream is very weak and I have pain in my lower back. I have to urinate every hour and it is difficult to get any sleep. Also my urethra burns after and during urination. I donít feel that I have emptied my bladder after urinating. I also have leakage afterwards and I have resorted to wearing a depends.
What I am experiencing now is much worse than any episode that I had with my prostate issues before. If I could turn back the clock ten days I would definitely not go through with the surgery. I donít believe that I was fully informed by my doctor of the possible side effects or complications of the surgery. My life is on hold because of this.
The wreck hitting a deer on the way to the hospital should have been a sign to postpone or delay the surgery. I wish I had found this board before doing the surgery.
Could someone who has had this surgery please tell me if this is normal.
