To Turp Or Not To Turp?



Has this happened to anyone? My husband has had numerous cysto procedures, for his prostate from bladder stones over the past 8 years- his Uro. from the VA left and we were very comfortable with him, he felt the cystos, and monitoring the stones was enough-- 2 new Uro. scheduled him a TURP for various reasons we were skeptical-being the old Uro. felt differently-- Reluctantly it was scheduled-- surgery was to be 1 hour or so--having been waiting for 4 hours. - my daughter and I felt something was wrong--

finally demanding a contact in the OR-( everyone gave me the be out soon story) URo.

came out said he didn't do anything- my husband now (had double epid. figuring he be overnite-) since the surgery was scheduled 4 months ahead, now in recovery they wanted him to pee, before release it was 445pm. going home time for staff- he couldn't feel anything in his pns. so they cathered and sent us home--I went to the records room to get a copy of the procedure- and the equipment broke while doing the procedure in his pns., - made calls a C-aide told us we could go for a visit to the old Uro. as per the VA-he did a cyst0. for 1 stone in office- and my husband didn't need the TURP-he is monitored now - and since 2 VA Uros. have left/ ANGELS WERE!!! WATCHING OVER HIM

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
