pauldhodson Posted July 21, 2018 Share Posted July 21, 2018 Hi Guys, I was diagnosed stage IV PCa 2 years ago (April 2016 age 49) and have had chemo, ADT and now on to Enzalutamide. Over the past 6 months, my urinary function has gone from bad to non-existent and I've been self-catheterising for 5 weeks as this is the only way I could pee. On my Urologists advice, I had a TURP (Trans Urethral Resection of The Prostate) this week to enable me to pee without a catheter. My Uro, said that my prostate was growing into my urethra and bladder neck and he removed a 'fair bit' of tissue. He also said he couldn't get the camera in due to the blockage and had to go to a much smaller one at first. I had the indwelling catheter removed yesterday and I am still unable to pee and I am back to self-catheterising. They gave me the option of wearing an indwelling catheter for a week or self-catheterising for a week and chose to do self-catheterising. I am now wondering if I've made the right choice or if it wouldn't make any difference. Has anyone else been through this? Since being home (24 hours) I've managed to pee on 25mls 2 times and that was only when my bladder was so full it hurt. I'd like to hear from anyone else who's had this experience and whether things improved over time? Cheers Paul Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
