Prostrate surgery is very common and very minor surgery by today's standard.Your dad is old but don't worry as prostrate is a common problem in the elderly.Be relaxed and everything will be fine.
General Surgeon Dr. Akshata Powar's  Response
prostate enlargement is common in elderly, it presents with increased frequency of micturition, urgency and hesitancy. initial line of management is medical to shrink the prostate gland; also it is important to do serum PSA in these cases.
surgery for prostate is TURP which is an endoscopic procedure, so patients are comfortable on the first post- operative day itself.

I had TURP surgery 7 years ago and for the last two years I have had pain in the prostate. My doctor said that the prostate has enlarged somewhat but did not recommend any further action at this time. Can I receive a prescription medication for this problem. I have no pain urinating or during sexual activity.

Hello dr Samuel, I am having a slight shape pain at the left side of the bottom of my belly during erection. This most happens in the morning when I wake up with a high need of urinate.

Okay here's my problem: I'm 36 years old, have polycystic kidney disease and a history of prostatitis (4 instances all mild). For the last three weeks I've been having prostatitis symptoms again (perineal pain, burning after urination, penile and testicular pain) Went to the urologist a week ago and found my prostate to be roughly 2.5 times normal size. Diagnosed with bph and prescribed proscar. My question is isn't it a little unlikely to have this kind of enlargement this soon? I've taken two doses of the proscar couldn't get an erection so I discontinued use. Doctor currently has me on antibiotics but all I want is relief. I refuse to be 36 and non-functional sexually. Are there any other options? I'm freaking out and very depressed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
