Few days before the TURP operation, your doctor may recommend you stop taking medications that might increase your risk of bleeding.

Before TURP treatment, you will be given anesthesia.
A resectoscope is inserted into the tip of your penis, through your urethra and prostate area. There won’t be any necessity to make any form of an incision on the outside of your body. The resectoscope will be used by your TURP doctor to trim the tissue from the inside of your prostate gland, one piece at a time.
Once the operation is done, you will most likely stay in the hospital for a couple of days. You may also have a urinary catheter in place for a day or two due to swelling that can block urine flow. It is essential to drink plenty of water, eat high-fiber food, avoid stressful activities and sexual activity for at least four to six weeks post procedure.
Transurethral resection of the prostate usually relieves symptoms quickly. Most men generally experience stronger urine flow post-surgery. CureConsult will ensure you receive the best TURP treatment possible. Please contact your TURP doctor if symptoms persist.Learn Less
