Hello Lailatul, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Prostate surgery is usually done to deal with problems related to enlarged prostate glands such as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia / BPH, prostate tumors, prostate cancer, and enlargement of other prostate glands. There are several methods that can be used in prostate surgery, namely open prostate surgery, Transurethral Resection of the Prostate / TURP, and Transurethral Incision of the Prostate / TIUP.
After undergoing the surgical procedure, patients may experience:
Stinging in the area of stitches used for surgery, if the surgical procedure performed by the operation is open
Pain and pain when urinating.
Difficult to hold urine
The appearance of blood in the urine.
Usually patients will continue to wear the catheter for several days, usually 5-10 days after surgery. There are several risks of prostate surgery regardless of the method used, these risks are allergic reactions, infections in surgical wounds, formation of blood clots, bleeding, damage to organs around the prostate, urinary tract infections, difficulty holding urine, orgasm during sexual intercourse, urethral stricture, impotence.
Regarding the pain during urination experienced by your father-in-law, it may be caused by complications from the surgery. For that you do the right thing by bringing it to a urology doctor. Right now what you can do is:
Evaluate your father-in-law's condition regularly. (from the urine, color, smell, etc.)
Give enough food and drink.
Avoid excessive activity for a while.
That's all the answers I can give, more and less I apologize.
Thank you, good luck always :)
