Brief Answer: If you have difficulty in urination,surgery isbest Detailed Answer: Hi Previous history of Cardiac disease and Stroke are definitely risk factors for you at the age of 83. However if you have difficulty in passing urine, then surgery would be a good choice and Transurethral resection of prostate is the best option. If the Surgery improves your Urine flow,it is better to go for it. You have not specified the reason why your urologist wants to perform the TURP on you. It might be better if you can provide me the reasons. Wish you good health and speedy recovery. Regards

I am a 23 year old man with high blood pressure and a high heart rate. I have for the last two years been suffering from frequent urination and very loose stool. I usually have to go once in 45 mins. I recently have lost the sensation of having to urinate alltogether. It is really scaring me. I have infrequent abdominal pain in front of my left hip and lower back pain too. I am 6 feet tall and weigh 350lbs. I have had my blood tested for diabetes and it came back with great blood sugar. I have also had my prostate looked at and it looks fine. My kidneys were checked and they were fine too. The doctors in a hospital and my personal doctor basically said we don t know whats wrong with you . This is very scary and uncomfortable. I can t work anymore because of this and it s gotten so bad that I can t even leave my own home sometimes because I have to go to the bathroom so much... When I go, it s also a good amount of each, not just a dribble. I don t know what else to do but I really would like some help... I don t know where to turn or what to do anymore.

I had undergone TURP in April 2009. But urianation has never been smooth ro complete even after this surgery. I have to strain much, have to get up three to four times during the night for urination. A second urologist reviwed my ultrasound of my KUB and found out prostate enalrgement. He says anotehr TURP is required for this. I had taken homeopathy treatment for about 8 months with no improvement. Do I have to undergo a second TURP to remove the residual tissues? Is it safe? Please advise in detail. Regards G.Gopal, India
