Prostate operation

Has anyone had the operation called turp?
Hans is going to be 'seen to' on the 20th of this month.
I think he is a bit worried about what the outcome could be.
There is the PM if you've had this op done, but don't want to talk about it on the open forum, I would like to know if anyone has been through it and what he can expect.

Me too, I have my 2nd yearly MRI scan soon, and I have been advised that it might be something to have done if the results are worse than last time, I did consider looking on YouTube, but I did that for the biopsy and nearly crapped mesen, but the reality was actually quite painless almost, more uncomfortable, I recall the doc saying the Turp was similar, but I may be mixed up.

Posted as I've not got the info you/I need, but would like to know more.

We have seen the videos and know what the medics say about the after effects, but first hand information from someone who has had it done is more reliable

Since my hip op 1 year ago I have been having a bit of bother that was neither mentioned by the medics and can´t find anything on the internet, then again you know I am unique

Right then here we go first off i was very nervous (apprehensive) i had an epidural which as you probably know Jan numbs you from the chest down,i didnt feel a thing.
I was kept in hospital for 2 nights with a catheter then turfed out,the surgeon did say for the next few weeks i would probably wish i hadnt had it done and he was right but thankfully it is getting better (im now peeing like a stallion).
Any questions just ask.

Why was he right about wishing you hadn't had it done? Burning, incontinent, what's should he to expect?

Apparentley it helps the healing.
