Post TURP prostate problems

I am 68 years old and had a TURP operation three months ago. I have normal ejaculation, not retrograde. Is this unusual after a TURP? Though two of the benefits of the operation are a stronger urine stream, and fewer noctural visits to the toilet, I still have the prostatic infections I had before the operation. Does this mean that too little tissue was shaved away in the operation, and is there anything I can do about my infections, which seem to relate - as before - to the ejaculatory mechanism?

if you are having a good stream then good amount of tissue must have been resected.....and regarding prostatic infection get prostatic massage done and the sample retrieved should be send for culture and medications can cure the disease..

Thanks for the query

Looks like u have lots of good news to tell us post operation so obv ur operation has been a success. Prostatitis will be taken care of the by the antibiotics prescribed to u. It takes time though. No it does not mean too little prostate was shaved off
