3 months since TURP and little improvement.
Still urinating often -- every hour or so and flow not strong. Have to push to get last drops out. Sleep 5-6 hours without having to pee, but not a lot comes out in morning when I pee and flow is not strong. Don\'t have the constant feeling of not having emptied out but from time to time the feeling is there. Is this in the realm of normal after 3 months and is there a chance things will still improve or should I go back to my urologist? Thanks

Welcome to e health forum.

Usually recovery from TURP takes between 4 -8 weeks.

Your progress after your surgery, seems to be within the expected lines, and with time you will improve.

Flow with the morning urine, would depend on the fluid intake in the evening and night time. In case, you are urinating every few hours, then the flow speed and the volume will also be slow and low. With time this should improve and get better.

If you have problems including - blood in the urine, burning micturition, fever, etc, it would be recommended to consult your doctor or a urologist for proper medical advice.

I hope this helps.
