Post Prostate Surgery Pain Amost 1 Year Later

My husband is still having pain when he urinates almost a year after his prostate surgery. He does not have cancer. He did have a super large prostate which totally blocked the flow of urine.  What's up? Any recommendations?

Hi there!

Well, pain needs to be differentiated from a discomfort due to obstruction. While pain could be caused by infections, inflammations, injuries, stones, erosions, ulcers etc.; an obstructive discomfort could mean a re-enlargement/ BPH. I would suggest consulting his urologist at this stage, for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

I do not know whether he had the same procedure as I did, which was bilateral Orchiedectomy with TURP. I was diagnosed earlier with Prostate Cancer following Biopsy. PSA was 12.2. 8 weeks later I still have considerable pain and sensatyion of burning during urination, and a feeling of BM which is even worse! The PSA is now 1.2.
I hope it helps to know he is not alone!!

Hi! I come back to add to my comment of 07/11. Now ten weeks after TURP I can not say I am back to normal, but the pain, irritation and burning have come down a lot. Life is almost tolerable! I tried to keep down the acidity of Urine by swallowing four pills of Alu Hydroxide, alkaline  type antacid a day, and this seems to help. Alkaline Citrates too seem to relive the pain.
