After the catheter is removed you may feel pain and burning in the urethra and bladder. You may also experience a frequent need to urinate and see blood in your urine. You may also have urinary incontinence. These conditions are usually temporary. The electrical resection procedure is relatively safe, but in some cases there may be complications, such as intra- and post-operative bleeding, which requires blood transfusion; infection, which may be a result of hyperplasia; TURP syndrome, which may cause damage to internal organs; recto-urethral fistula; post-operative urinary tract infection; urethral stricture; urinary incontinence; erection disorders; possible failure of the treatment; disease recurrence. Some of the above complications may require a repeat surgery or an open surgery. After the procedure you may experience retrograde ejaculation. This means that during the ejaculation the semen does not emerge through the urethra, but is redirected to the bladder lumen. It is removed from the bladder during urination.
A follow-up visit 14 days after the procedure is recommended to evaluate the treatment and talk about histopathology results.
