Thanks for the query.
Pain while urinating and pus cells in the urine is highly suggestive of a urine infection.
A urine culture test will help confirm the diagnosis.
Based on the results the doctor can prescribe appropriate antibiotics. He may also repeat an ultrasound to determine why there is infection.
Hope this helps
Good luck.

General Surgeon Dr. Grzegorz Stanko's  Response

Thank you for the query.

After every surgical procedure including TURP inflammatory process is something very common. It appears not only due infection but also due tissues destruction taking part in repair process. Moreover, an abscess means that the infection was there before the procedure so its presence after it is very normal thing. So as long as urine analysis and urine culture is done and proper treatment ordered, there is nothing to worry about.

Hope this will help.
