After that  a tube is being inserted into the tip of your penis which extend into the bladder for draining urine.  When the part of your prostate is removed which is causing symptoms then one or two temporary drain tubes may be inserted through that puncture in your skin. One tube will go directly into the bladder and the other goes into the area where prostate was removed.
