Don’t let prostate trouble take control of your life. A trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is the quickest way to deal with prostate problems.
TURP is usually performed to treat an enlarged prostate. An enlarged prostate often puts pressure on your bladder and urethra, which can cause a number of distressing urinary symptoms, including problems when starting to pee, and a sudden urge to pee.
In removing part of your prostate, TURP helps relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate by releasing pressure placed on your bladder and urethra.
These symptoms can vary from mild to serve. More persistent symptoms can make going to the toilet a inconvenient and uncomfortable, which can sometimes affect your everyday quality of life.
The cause of an enlarged prostate is unknown, but it is thought to be associated with hormonal changes that occur in men as they get older. These hormonal changes can cause cause your prostate to grow.
There are several reasons why you might experience urinary symptoms, including a urinary tract infection, so it is important to visit your doctor about your problem. They can assess your situation and accurately diagnose the cause of your symptoms, helping find the right treatment for you.
Prostate trouble is caused by the growth of your prostate gland. It is normal for your prostate gland to get larger with age. If the gland tightens around your urethra it can interrupt the flow of urine from your bladder.
Like all surgical procedures, there are some complications that can be serious and can even cause death. Please bear in mind the general and specific complications regarding this type of operation.
It’s recommended to do regular exercise, which should help you to return to normal activities as soon as possible. Before you start exercising though, ask the healthcare team or your GP for advice.
Most men make a good recovery, with a large improvement in their symptoms. Your prostate gland can grow larger again and symptoms can come back and be worse.
