After TURP / surgery for Enlarged Prostate gland
Complication after prostate surgery
Even though ONE should feel much better AT THE TIME OF LEAVING the hospital, it will probably take a couple of months FOR THE PROSTATE to heal completely. During the recovery period, following are some common problems that can occur.
Problem Urinating: - ALTHOUGH urinary stream is stronger right after surgery, but it may take awhile before NORMAL FEELING OF URINATION COMES again. After the catheter is removed, urine will pass over the surgical wound on the prostate, CAUSING some discomfort or a sense of urgency.
Incontinence: - As the bladder returns to normal, ONE may have some temporary problems controlling urination, but long-term incontinence can ALSO occurs. Doctors find that longer THE problems existed before surgery, the longer it takes for the bladder to regain its full function after the operation.
Bleeding: - In the first few weeks after transurethral surgery (TURP) the scab inside the bladder may loosen, and blood may suddenly appear in the urine. The bleeding usually stops with a short period of resting in bed and drinking fluids. However, if urine is VERY red or if it contains clots or if you feel any discomfort, be sure to contact THE doctor.
Sexual Function after Surgery: - Complete recovery of sexual function may take up to 1 year,
Erections: - Surgery some time causes a loss of erectile function. However, surgery cannot usually restore function that was lost before the operation.
Ejaculation: - Although most men are able to continue having erections after surgery, a prostatIC procedure frequently makes them sterile (unable to father children) by causing a condition called retrograde ejaculation or dry climax.
Orgasm: - Most men find little or no difference in the sensation of orgasm, or sexual climax, before and after surgery. Although it may take some time to get used to retrograde ejaculation,. Many men also find it helpful to talk with a counselor during the adjustment period after surgery.
Is Further Treatment Needed? Since surgery for BPH leaves behind a good part of the gland, it is still possible for prostate problems, including BPH, to develop again. However, surgery usually offers relief from BPH for few years. About 10-30 percent of the men who have surgery for BPH eventually need a second operation for enlargement.
