Transurethral Resection (TURP)

If you can’t understand why you’re constantly running to the bathroom to urinate or why you feel that burning sensation when you pee, it may be time to see your doctor and talk about this. We may have a procedure to avoid these problems.

From 1 to 2 hours
From 1 to 2 weeks

Why this procedure?

The prostate is a small gland located between the penis and the bladder. It surrounds the urethra, through which urine travels from the bladder to the penis. Mostly in the case of older men, sometimes this gland becomes enlarged. When this happens, the prostate places pressure on the bladder and the urethra, affecting the natural urination process.

Some of the symptoms of this condition, are: problems to start urinating, weak urine flow, frequent need to urinate, sudden urges to urinate, having to strain to pass urine and waking up several times during nighttime to urinate.

By getting our transurethral resection, your bladder will be free of any pressure and you’ll gain control over your natural urinating needs. You’ll never experience another prostate-related uncomfortable moment and you’ll be able to go back to your daily routines without the worry of feeling embarrassed against your will.

What happens during a transurethral resection?

During the transurethral resection, our doctors eliminate the excess tissue growth in the prostate until the urethra is no longer restricted and urine flow can go back to normal. To aid the bladder and the prostate and to avoid any cloths, a temporal urinary catheter is placed inside your body to help the healing process.

Men who:

  • Have multiple urinary problems such as inability to completely empty their bladder; sudden urgencies to urinate; strain when urinating; weak urine flow; stones in their bladder.

Once you’ve had the transurethral resection, you’ll notice improvement immediately. However, during the first weeks after the procedure, you may still feel a burning sensation when urinating and may also feel like you have to urinate often. These sensations will go away.

Regarding the catheter, you’ll have to keep it in for a few days to a week after the surgery and must empty it periodically. Our medical staff will give you indications on how to do this. It is very possible that minor bleeding will show in your urine when the catheter is finally removed, but it is nothing to worry about, it’ll go away after a few days.

Don’t forget to drink large amounts of fluids, this will help prevent urinary tract infections. Also, keep in mind that you must avoid heavy activities such as sports or lifting heavy object for about 3 to 4 weeks after the surgery.

Surgery should not affect your sexual desire or ability to have sex, however you must be aware that a retrograde ejaculation is likely to happen.

Don’t forget to follow your doctor’s instructions and to attend every one of your appointments. We need to work as a team to achieve the ultimate results.

(It is important to note that recovery specifications may vary depending on the procedure and the patient; our medical staff will walk you through the details of your recovery process.)

When can I resume my normal activities?

You’ll be able to return to your normal activities 2 weeks after the surgery.

How long will I have to have the catheter?

It depends on the patient, but generally, only for a couple of days.

Should I consider a specific time of the year to do my procedure?

Depending on the chosen procedure, some recoveries do better on winter, while others do better on the summer time. Ask your doctor for the option that better suits your case. You should also consider periods of time in which you’ll have time to relax, like the holidays, for example.
