Prostate Resection (TURP)
Prostate problems can occur as a result of the growth of your prostate gland. It is normal for the prostate to grow larger with age, but if the gland tightens around the urethra it can cause problems passing urine from your bladder.
The prostate resection procedure is a surgical procedure that should result in a better flow of urine and improved ability to empty the bladder. You should not need to pass urine as often during the night.
For most men surgery is not required as medications are available to manage the condition. However, medication is not a permanent solution and surgery can be more effective if you suffer from recurring symptoms.
The prostate resection procedure takes roughly an hour to perform and is usually performed under general or spinal anaesthetic. The procedure uses a keyhole surgery technique where a small telescope is inserted into your urethra and excess prostate tissue is removed.
Patients who undergo the prostate resection procedure should be able to return home after three to four days. You are likely to experience a stinging sensation the first few times you pass urine following the procedure. You should be able to return to normal activities after four to six weeks.
Regular exercise is recommended to recover as quickly as possible. Before beginning a course of exercise consult your medical team for advice.
At One Healthcare we can book you in to see a specialist Urology surgeon, usually within 48 hours, for an initial consultation. Prostate resection is available at the One Hatfield Hospital in Hertfordshire and the One Ashford Hospital in Kent.
