Because the prostate enlarges in men over time this often gives problems with the passage of urine out of the bladder. One of the operations that can help this is called a TURP or a transurethral resection of prostate. This is a telescopic operation that removes the central portion of the prostate and allows the urine to flow more freely. It’s a straightforward operation that requires no cuts on the skin. Most patients are in hospital for two days with a catheter in place for about a half to three quarters of that time. The majority of people will get back to normal activity at about a week following the operation.
