What is TURF ?
Benign Prostate Hyperplasia
One of the most common ailments that aging men face is prostate gland enlargement. BPH, or benign prostate hyperplasia, affects 50% of men over the age of 50, with roughly 1/3 of these men experiencing symptoms such as a sluggish, interrupted, or weak urine stream, frequent urination, especially at night, and urgency with leaking or dribbling.
The enlarged prostate gland presses against the urethra, obstructing or interfering with urine flow out of the body. Some of the symptoms of BPH are:
- Problem starting to get a urine stream
- Frequent urination at night
- Urgency of urination
- Dribbling after urination
These symptoms can further lead to problems such as formation of stones in the bladder or urinary infections.
With the time they reach 70-85 years of age, 90 percent of men are impacted by BPH. Fortunately, several surgical methods have been developed, with Transurethral Resection of Prostate being one of the most effective therapies.
TURP (Transurethral Resection of Prostate)
Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP) is a surgical operation in which a part of the prostate gland is removed through the penis. A TURP is done if:
- The initially done treatments for prostate enlargement such as medications have failed to relieve symptoms
- There are complications involved due to enlarged prostate such as bladder stones, bladder infection etc.
BPH symptoms are relieved after TURP. TURP Advantages:
- No blood loss
- Safer and Faster
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster recovery
- Highly beneficial for patients with kidney dysfunction, people having prostate size more than 60 gm, patients with cardiac complications or those who are on blood thinning agents.
Am I a good Candidate ?
Your doctor may suggest medication or other solutions if you experience symptoms of an enlarged prostate. If those therapies don’t work, surgery may be suggested. The TURP operation may be required if the following conditions exist:
- you have slow urination
- your bladder never feels empty
- you feel an increased need to urinate at night
- you experience frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs)
- you experience bleeding from your prostate
- you have a history of bladder stones
- you develop kidney damage
How is TURP done?
TURP is a surgical technique in which an instrument is inserted into the urethra. This instrument known as a resectoscope is about 12 inches long and half an inch in diameter reaches the prostate gland.
A light, valves for adjusting fluid irrigation, and an electrical loop for cutting tissue and closing blood arteries are all included in the resectoscope. The equipment is placed into the penis, and the surgeon guides the wire loop, which eliminates blocking tissue fragments one by one.
After the surgery, the tissues that were sliced during the treatment are carried out by fluid into the bladder and flushed out.
What is the Recovery after TURP like?
The recovery time after TURP surgery is short, however the patient must stay in the hospital for a few days after the procedure. Following surgery, the patient is maintained under medical supervision and to drain urine, the patient is kept on the catheter for 2 to 3 days.
Analgesics and antibiotics may be needed to relieve pain and prevent infection. The patient is given enough liquids to drink in order for the bladder to be cleansed on a regular basis. After TURP surgery, it can take up to a month to fully recover.
After surgery, the patient is advised to refrain from intense activity and carrying heavy objects for at least one month. However, one week following surgery, the patient can resume normal activities. After 4 to 5 days, the patient is usually able to return home.
What Results Can I Expect from TURP?
TURP is a procedure used to treat men who have moderate to severe urinary issues that have not responded to treatment. While TURP has long been thought to be the most successful treatment for an enlarged prostate, a number of other, less invasive treatments are gaining popularity.

Frequently Asked Questions
One of the safest treatments for treating BPH is TURP surgery. The following are some of the risks linked with TURP surgery:
Bleeding: In the case of a greatly enlarged prostate gland, there may be a lot of bleeding during surgery.
TURP syndrome: occurs when the body absorbs the excess liquid used to irrigate the bladder during surgery.
Erectile dysfunction: In a small number of cases, surgery might disrupt the nerves that trigger erections. For a few days, this may make erection difficult.
Retrograde ejaculation: 75 to 80 percent of patients do not generate semen for an extended period of time, affecting fertility.
Prostate re-enlargement: The prostate may continue to grow following surgery and treatment in some circumstances. The patient may require a repeat procedure in this scenario.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT): is a condition in which a blood clot forms in an artery or vein, most commonly in the legs.
Incontinence: is when a patient loses control of their voiding, which can be temporary or chronic. Incontinence is experienced by only 1% of patients.
Urethral stricture: Injury to the urethra after surgery might result in urethral stricture due to delayed scar development.
In terms of hospital stay or complications, there is no difference between the two surgeries. Men in the TURP group, on the other hand, had a quicker urinary flow rate (they could pass higher volumes of urine more quickly). TURP is also marginally less expensive and takes slightly less time to complete than the laser operation.
When there are no other medical problems, the entire TURP surgery takes roughly 60 to 90 minutes.
The hospital stay after TURP usually lasts one to three days. In the case of laser surgery, the patient may be able to return home the same day.
Yes. To eliminate urine, a catheter is frequently implanted for a day or two after surgery. You will be able to pass urine and return home when the catheter is withdrawn. For a few days after catheter removal, people usually have discomfort while urinating or difficulties controlling their bladder.
Before you leave the hospital, your urologist will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself and recover at home. Following surgery, it is essential to relax as much as possible for a few weeks. Here are some ideas to make your recuperation go more smoothly:
Do not engage in intense activities or lift heavy weights until the doctor has given you permission, which is usually 4 to 6 weeks. Once you start to feel better, you can do gentle or low-impact workouts.
To help cleanse out the bladder, drink plenty of water — at least 8 cups per day. To avoid constipation and straining during bowel movements, eat fiber-rich foods.
Before resuming any blood-thinning medications, wait a while – usually until your doctor allows it. Until your doctor says otherwise, avoid driving and sexual activity.
This is mostly determined by the nature of your occupation. People who work in an office (desk job) are more likely to be able to return to work sooner than those who do severe manual labor. After surgery, it is normally recommended that you take 3 to 4 weeks off work.
Based on your rehabilitation, the doctor will recommend the best time to start driving. After a week, some people may be able to drive again.
After a TURP treatment, it is normally advised to avoid intercourse for 3 to 4 weeks.
