Transparent - Professional - Without Hassles
TURP is Transurethral resection of the prostate. It is used to treat urinary problems that are caused by an enlarged prostate. It is generally considered for men.
In this surgery, an instrument called a resectoscope is inserted through the tip of your penis and into the tube that carries urine from your bladder. With the help of a resectoscope, the doctor sees and cuts away excess prostate tissue that's blocking urine flow.
Yes, TURP is major surgery with serious risks and potential complications. If your condition is severe, then only you have to go for the surgery. Otherwise, you may have less invasive treatment options.
You must not eat, drink, or smoke for 6 hours before surgery to prepare for the anesthesia. If you are taking any specific medication, discuss it with your doctor.
Before your surgery, you have to empty your bowels with an enema or laxative. Your doctor will guide you on how to do this.
The TURP procedure takes about 60 to 90 minutes to perform, depending on how much of your prostate needs to be removed.
Your doctor will give either general anesthesia, which means you will be unconscious or spinal anesthesia, which means you will be conscious during the procedure. To prevent infection, your doctor might also give you a dose of antibiotics.
The complications with a TURP surgery include:
Temporary loss of bladder control
Urinary tract infections
Narrowing of the urethra
You will not feel any severe pain, but there may be some discomfort and bladder spasms from the catheter.
If you will have a spinal anesthetic, it means you'll be awake during the procedure but won't be able to feel anything below your waist.
You have to stay in the hospital for one or two days after the surgery.
You should avoid having foods that cause gas, such as beans, broccoli, cauliflower, onions, and cabbage. For the first few days after the surgery, you should eat light foods.
No, you should avoid doing any strenuous activity or heavy lifting for at least a month after your surgery.
No, you can not. You should avoid driving until your catheter is removed or you are no longer taking prescribed pain medicines.
Usually, it is safe to return to your daily routine 1 to 2 weeks after TURP procedures and to strenuous activities after 1 to 2 months.
