Hello Doc, I am about to have the TURP procedure

Hello Doc,
I am about to have the TURP procedure and I have reservations.
This just isn't that big a problem for me. I take Flomax and get up about 2-3 times a night.
Day time when I got to go, I got to go , Not a big problem because I work outdoors.
I am 74 179 lbs in very good condition
The concern for my very competent doctor is the possibility of urinary tract infection.
I read that there are other risks but the odds seem pretty low except retro grade ejaculation.
Most important I would be to come out of there with incontinence , that's for sure!!!

That your take?. How big a deal is that? (UTI)
Thanks for being there, Tom
