Hello , welcome to HCM forum
will surely help you with your problem.
During the surgery for BPH you would have been cathetrised so your symptoms of irritation may be due to the catheter or the surgery also. It will take 6 weeks for the inflammation to subside .so no need to worry symptoms will gradually disappear.
But i advice you to avoid constipation,strenous activity or any sexual activity for 6 weeks.
Hope my advice's will help you.

Hi,Thanks for query,
Nothing to worry this sensation will remain for some time after prostatic surgery.
Take plenty of water.
Go fro urine to rule out urinary infection.
After some time if this problem persisted then consult surgeon and you may require dilatation of urethra.
Ok and bye.
