TURP vs laser TUVP: Main differences occur with the surgeon's experience. Both procedures (mandated by insurers) must be scheduled/performed on an "outpt" basis, and may leave you with a foley catheter for ~ 1 week. Reports suggest longer post-operative discomfort following laser tuvp. Also, no tissue is typically obtained for review with a laser procedure, unless the surgeon is performing a laser "resection.". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have been diagnosed with BPH. In 2004 I had a TUNA. In 2010 I had a laser TURP. The condition has returned. What else can I do to fix my BPH?
BPH treatment: Both of the treatments you describe can inadequately address the problem in very large prostates by failing to remove enough prostatic tissue. For very large prostate glands, transurethral resection of the prostate or even an open suprapubic prostatectomy is often required to fully address the problem. You may want to consider seeking out a urologist experienced in these surgical techniques. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

For enlarged prostate surgery, which method heals faster? Is it better for a faster and less bloody to perform TURP so that the result is the inability to ejaculate?
I : I am not exactly sure what you are asking here. There are different procedures available for urinary symptoms. The most minimally invasive procedures are in-office procedures like tumt or tuna. These are procedures done in the office with minimal anesthesia. These generally have quick recoveries. However, they generally do not work as well as more invasive procedures. Some patients are able to maintain their ejaculate. Photoselective vaporization of the prostate or laser surgery is certainly less bloody than a traditional TURP but it does cause frequently cause a loss of ejacuate. You are able to go home the day of your procedure as well. There is some argument as to whether or not this procedure is as good as a turp. Turp remains the gold standard treatment for urinary symptoms. However, it is the most invasive, requires a hospital stay and has the highest rate of bleeding requiring blood transfusion. This will definitely wipe out your ejaculate as well. ...Read more
My uncle just undergone TURP for enlarged prostate gland. Post surgery he has hypotonic bladder. Is it curable!? What is the treatment
Difficult problem: If recent there may still be recovery, the first step in treatment is a good evaluation, usually with urodynamic studies to determine if it is truly a weak bladder vs a persistent obstruction. If the bladder is weak, but he can void and does not experience repeat infections then it may be best to do nothing beyond behavioral strategies. The only real treatment is a catheter, preferably self-cath. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not for about 2 week: You should avoid intercourse, tampons or douching for about 2 weeks. Usually that is the time of a post operative visit, at which time your doctor can examine the cervix to see if it has healed sufficiently to resume intercourse. Having intercourse too soon after surgery can increase your risk of infection or bleeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
