Some of the benefits of the TURP procedure are it treats recurrent urinary tract infections, prevents bladder damage, and kidney damage, and relieves the symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate.
As with any surgery, certain complications can occur with TURP. Some possible complications may include the following:
- Blood in the urine after surgery
- Electrolyte abnormalitiesBladder injury
- Difficulty urinating: A temporary problem associated with post-surgery swelling. A catheter may be placed until you can urinate on your own.
- Urinary tract infections: After prostate surgery, there is a risk of a UTI. The longer a catheter is kept in place, the greater likelihood of infection. Some men experience recurring UTIs following TURP surgery.
- Erectile dysfunction: ED is a rare side effect of TURP surgery, but it is possible.
- Retrograde ejaculation (when ejaculate goes into the bladder and not out the penis). Also known as dry orgasm, this effect causes semen to travel into the bladder instead of out the penis during ejaculation. While this doesn’t usually affect sexual pleasure and isn’t harmful, it can affect fertility.
