The doctor will conduct full-body examinations and tests for evaluating the patient's fitness for this surgery.
You may need to consult with your doctor regarding modifying the dosages of certain medications like blood thinners.
Consult the doctor for instructions regarding eating and drinking before the procedure on the day of the surgery.
During the procedure, a scope is inserted through the penis tips via the tube that carries urine from the urinary bladder (urethra) to be passed out of the body.
The prostate is surrounding the urethra. The laser is inserted to shrink the excess tissue that blocks the urine flow and remove it using different instruments.
A urinary catheter is placed to ease the swelling that obstructs the urinary flow.
You might also notice some side effects after this procedure like:
Blood in your urine for a few days to weeks after the surgery.
Urgent or frequent bathroom visits for peeing accompanied by a burning sensation. It can last for a few weeks to months. Discuss It with your doctor if it becomes bothersome.
Difficulty holding urine which improves as time passes.
The patient may need to stay at the hospital stay, which depends on the type of surgery.
Few general tips for taking care after the surgery include:
-Avoid strenuous activity, like heavy lifting, until you start feeling easy and the doctor approves it.
-Avoid having sexual intercourse for a week or two after the surgery as it can lead to pain and bleeding.
-Take medicines as advised by the doctor.
-Visit your doctor if you notice any usual signs like thickened urine or blood clots in the urine.
The advantages of using laser therapy over traditional treatment options include:
Lower risk of bleeding. Especially for those who suffer from blood or clotting disorders.
Shorter hospital stay.
The shorter requirement for a catheter after surgery (for less than 24 hours).
Faster improvements in symptoms.
Bleeding and blood clot formation
Infection at the operated site
Injury to nearby organs
Reaction to the anesthesia used during the surgery
Need for additional surgery if laser surgery fails to treat or remove all the excess tissue.
