I am convalescing in my GF's MH near Wenatchee WA, where I had a turp last Tuesday. I opted for the laser procedure as opposed to the regular cutting. Things are recovering slowly, meaning it's quite unpleasant to urinate. The urethra is widened, but at the same time, swelling constricts it back again. That will heal.

I've been putting this off for years as it's just not something one looks forward to doing. I was getting up as much as 5 times a night to go to the bathroom when there was hardly anything in my bladder, and that gets old after a few years. I have been on Flomax for maybe 1 year, and I tried Proscar but that did not agree with me.

Right after the operation I noticed a sore lump under my right jaw hinge. The swelling comes and goes, and I occasionally I get a bitter taste in my mouth. The GF (nurse) thinks it's from the anesthetic, but the turp dr didn't agree and told me to have it checked out. I also got recurring bouts of the hiccups after the operation. That was not fun.

Follow the doctors orders on the swelling. The hiccups I think are due to the anesthesia. My son had them for 5 days after an operation, nothing made them go away, horrible. I hope you heal quickly and feel much better!!

Lots of water and very limited activity. It doesn't take much to make things sore!
