Please explain if it is safe to do turp(transurethral resection prostate) operation the second time?

OK: No two turps are alike and no two urologists would perform TURP in the same way, largely depending upon surgeon's professional judgment, ethics, and skills so resulting in different outcomes.

Following transurethral resection of the prostate, how can the patient urinate?

The inside of the prostate is hollow and the urethra inside the prostate is made of prostatic tissue-this is what is being removed in a TURP;it heals back over and you still urinate through the prostate ...Read more

After transurethral resection of the prostate, how is the patient expected to urinate?

Usually, better...: You would expect to urinate with a better flow than before if you're able to void some with slow urine flow. This is the most common scenario after TURP. But, if residual urine is high, say, 450 cc or having urinary retention up to 1000-2500 cc, such men wouldn't void well, and even still never yet. So, it is said: Intervene at a reasonable time in a reasonable way to a reasonable person. ...Read more

Are the vas deferens are cut and tied in a transurethral resection of the prostate (turp)?

Almost never: Used to be common for some urologists to tie of the vasa deferentia (plural) after open prostate surgery, which was associated with about 2% incidence of epididymitis & when fewer different antibiotics were in existence. Turp is associated with lower incidence of postoperative infection & catheters remain inplace for shorter time compared to open surgery. Thus no need for vasectomy with turp. ...Read more
