Patient Education Company
Your doctor has recommended that you undergo a Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate – or TURP. But what exactly does that mean?

he prostate gland is a walnut-sized organ that is part of your reproductive system.

It provides some of the fluid contained in semen.

The prostate is located just under the bladder and behind the testicles.
The urethra — a hollow tube that carries both urine and semen to the penis — passes through the prostatTe.

In some men, the prostate gland becomes enlarged. Symptoms of an enlarged prostate include:
Patient Education
* a full bladder feeling even when the bladder is empty

* pain when urinating

* weak urinary stream

* infertility

* and sexual dysfunction.

To relieve you of your symptoms, your doctor feels that you would benefit from a surgical procedure called TURP.

TURP is designed to relieve symptoms by reducing the size of the prostate.
It is also a diagnostic procedure. Tissue removed during a resection of the prostate or TURP is routinely screened for the presence of cancer.

So make sure that you ask your doctor to carefully explain the reasons behind this recommendation.

Your Procedure:

On the day of your operation, you will be asked to put on a surgical gown.

You may receive a sedative by mouth and an intravenous line may be put in.

Once on the table, your feet and legs will be placed in an elevated position with your knees apart.

The nurse will swab the penis with an antiseptic solution.

Your doctor will then lift your penis upward.

A well-lubricated instrument called a resectoscope is then gently inserted into the urethra.

When the resectoscope reaches the back of the penis, your doctor will pull the penis downward in order to create a straight path into the prostate.

Using this tool, your doctor will then scrape excess tissue from the prostate, restoring it to its normal size.

Tissue removed from the prostate may be sent a laboratory for analysis.

When the surgery is complete, your doctor will remove the resectoscope. Your doctor will probably ask you to wear a temporary Foley catheter.

A Foley catheter is a narrow tube inserted through your urethra and into your bladder. The catheter is connected to a bag that is attached to your leg by a strap. While the Foley catheter is in place, urine will pass from your bladder into the bag. You will not need to urinate into a toilet.

The nurse will show you how to change the bag when it is full. An appointment will be made for you to return to the doctor's office in a couple of days to have the catheter removed. As soon as the anesthesia wears off and you feel comfortable, you'll be allowed to leave.

Low Back Pain Relief, Sciatica Treatment & the Spine by Austin Chiropractor

Follow our Social Media

Back pain can have many different causes. Poor posture, injuries, car accidents and simple day-to-day living can cause structural issues, sciatica or sciatic nerve pain, pinched nerves, bulging or herniated discs and worse. Dr. Echols teaches you about back pain, gives tips on how to stretch the back and relieve pain and demonstrates how flexion distraction tables are used in chiropractic adjustment.

Visceral pain may even be caused by the internal organs referring pain into the lower back. For example, the uterus transfers pain to the lower back and can cause discomfort during menstruation and PMS. Prostate issues can cause lower back pain in men, and addressing the health of the prostate can cure back pain in many cases.

Dr. Echols is a Chiropractor in Austin, Texas. He specializes in helping relieve pain, swelling, discomfort and other ailments in the back, hip, butt, neck, bulging discs, sciatica, and more.

In this free video, Dr. Echols talks about the low back and shows some gentle, safe adjustments that can help relieve pain in the low back, butt and hips. Chiropractic adjustments for the spine and low back (such as the flexion distraction table in this video) can help resolve these issues. The sacro-iliac joint can also cause sciatic pain or pain shooting down the leg.
