Smile Frequency after TURP

Hi, I had a turp procedure carried out 2 months ago.
It went very well I had no pain apart from a little
Discomfort from the catheter but nothing worth talking about.
I went into hospital Wednesday night, procedure done Thursday
7.30am. Back to the ward and had lunch and dinner later.
Discharged Sunday lunchtime.
Got home and passed a little blood with the urine as was expected.
This lasted about 5 weeks. The flow pressure is very good. It
used to take a long time to urinate. Now I'm in and out.
However I had frequency before the procedure and I still have.
Sometimes every hour. Now during the flow dynamic tests it was
suggested that I may have an over active bladder.
However I'm thrilled to have had the TURP. I've read in earlier
posts that it really takes 4-6months together fully back to normal.
Any comments on the above. Thanks.

Re: Frequency after TURP

Thank you for sharing your experience. I am fighting the same war and scheduled for cystoscopy and pressure-flow test prior to TURP or equivalent. Did you have a measurement of your post void residual pre and post surgery? Thank you.

Re: Frequency after TURP

Hi yes I had. Firstly what gave rise to having this procedure was ungoing bladder infections.
This was October 2011. At that time after my first visit and investigation my consultant said
that I may need a TURP. I had recurring infections. Having being on trimethoprim he put me on Ciproxin. Apparently an infection can lie deep in the prostate so he said!
However I hadn't a recurrence of the infection afterward.
In September i had a further dynamics test and it showed I had
high retention. Following that he decided a turp was necessary.
It was after the procedure that I discovered this site. I found very helpful information.
