What happens during TURP?

  • TURP is usually performed under spinal anaesthetic and takes less than 1 hour
  • Your surgeon will insert a resectoscope (a small operating telescope with a light) into your urethra (the tube that carries urine from you bladder to your penis) and remove enough prostate tissue to relieve the pressure on your urethra
  • Water is then flushed into the area to clear any debris
  • Your urethra will be swollen and sore after this procedure so a thin tube called a catheter will be inserted into your urethra to allow urine to drain from your bladder
  • You may experience a burning sensation when you first pass urine. This should ease quickly.

After your prostate resection surgery at Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital

  • You should be able to go home after 3 - 4 days
  • Most men begin to return to normal activities within a week
  • Do not lift or move anything heavy for at least the first 4 weeks
  • Avoid any strenuous activities such as housework or gardening until released to do so by your surgeon
  • Take over the counter pain relief such as paracetamol if needed
  • You may see some blood in your urine
  • Drink plenty of fluids to help flush out your system
  • You may also feel the need to urinate more often
  • As your bladder and urethra heal this should ease
  • Discuss any return to work with your consultant
  • Most men make a good recovery, with a big improvement in their symptoms.
