Are there any potential complications with laser prostate surgery?
As with any surgery, there is a minor risk of potential complications. However, laser prostate surgery is still a much safer alternative to the traditional operation.
In a small proportion of men, excessive scar tissue may form a stricture, which causes the bladder neck or urethra tube to narrow in the first few months after surgery. Often this can be dealt with in the Urologist’s office by simply passing dilators. In 1% of cases, a repeat trip to the operating room might be necessary to cut away very tough scar tissue.
What will it be like after laser prostate surgery?
Once the prostate channel has healed, your urinary flow will be stronger, easier to start and you’ll empty well.
The extra muscle your bladder has grown to push urine past an obstructing prostate will slim down again. After a few months the bladder can stretch more, and the strong urge to pass urine frequently or at night will ease off. Most older men will still awake once at night to go to the bathroom.
What about sex after laser prostate surgery?
Thulium laser surgery has very little effect on erections, as the nerves to the penis run along the outside of the prostate, away from where the channel is carved out.
Opening up the bladder neck area does usually cause retrograde or ‘backward’ ejaculation. This is harmless, and the semen will simply flush out with the next urination.
Overall, laser prostate surgery should have very little effect on your sex life.
