One may also ask, what to expect after a TURP? For several days after surgery, you may feel burning when you urinate. Your urine may be pink for 1 to 3 weeks after surgery. You also may have bladder cramps, or spasms. Your doctor may give you medicine to help control the spasms.
People also ask, why does TURP cause hyponatremia?
The symptoms of TURP are generally caused by an excessive fluid load in circulation. Excessive absorption of the irrigation solutions used during TURP, which are highly hypotonic can cause dilutional hyponatremia and hypo-osmolality resulting in severe neurological symptoms.
How long does it take to recover from a TURP?
3 and 6 weeks
