    Re: TURP Recovery


    That burning will pass - just takes time for the urethra to heal. Happy to hear you are doing well. It's just gonna take some time to get over the shock of the surgery. Just relax and let your body heal - everything sounds good!
    Good luck with the followup - let me know what happens.

    I finish my antibiotics tonight - feel much better this week. All I need is the bladder to get back to normal - don't know how long that will take, but I figure a few years. Taking the Serrapeptase and colostrum for that - we'll see if it helps <G>.

    Re: TURP Recovery

    Have just undergone and survived my second TURP in 7 months time. The first Uroligist just did not do me any good at all. The second Doctor was amazed by how little tissue was originally removed and the bladder blockage that was allowed to remain. Am doing better now some 4 weeks post surgery. Just cant seem to get control of my bladder. I can go as long as 3.5 hours at night with out having to urinate but as little as 1 hour between bathroom trips during the day. Have started Vesicare for OAB. Any ideas how long it will be for releif. Any one suffer this wide variance of bladder release times? The issue of burning has for the most part subsided, ocassionally I still feel a slight burn after I urinate. Did not have any symptoms of BPH at all until 12/06.

    Re: TURP Recovery

    I'm still having frequency four weeks after surgery as well. Mine however, is more at night than during the day, probably due to the fact that I drink a lot of liquids in the evenings. I'm told and I have read that the frequency subsides after 6 to 8 weeks, and that you really might not feel back to normal until the fourth month.
