Thanks for your query.Your father had undergone TURP for enlarged Prostate.6 months back and has burning while passing urine. This could be due to flimsy stricture of urethra that happens due to instrumentation of the Urethral passage during endoscopic surgery.Since most of the causes are ruled out please go ahead and get Cystoscopy done to find out the cause for the same.
