What is a TURP ?
A trans-urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is an operation to remove the parts of your prostate that are pressing on your urethra, to make it easier for you to pass urine. It involves a surgeon inserting a special tube down your urethra, through which a heated wire loop is passed. This wire loop is used to shave off the overgrown areas of your prostate…..
Am I a good candidate for TURP ?
Not everyone who develops an enlarged prostate will need treatment. However, your consultant has recommended a TURP because of your symptoms. A TURP is the most common type of surgery for an enlarged prostate. It will make it easier for you to pass urine and may relieve your other symptoms, although it will not always resolve all of them. If you don’t have treatment, your prostate will continue to grow, which may make your symptoms worse and increases the possibility of problems with your bladder and/or kidneys…..
Why transurethral resection of the prostate is done?
Sometimes surgery is needed to remove the part of a prostate cancer that is pressing on the tube that carries urine from your bladder. Your doctor may suggest an operation to take away some of the cancer so that you can pass urine more easily again. This operation is not done to cure your cancer. But it can relieve symptoms caused by the cancer pressing on your bladder…..
How a TURP is done ?
A TURP is carried out by passing a thin tube up the urethra through your penis. The tube has a tiny camera and an eyepiece, so that the surgeon can see inside your urethra. They remove the blockage using an instrument attached to the tube that can cut away the abnormal areas. Afterwards you usually need to stay in hospital for about 2 or 3 nights…..
After a TURP
It’s best if you can start moving around as soon as possible. You’ll probably be up and about within 24 hours. You may have a drip (intravenous infusion) to replace your body fluids. It will be taken out as soon as you are drinking normally again. It is important to drink plenty of fluids…..
