Hi,

It would be best to see your urologist again. If there were problems with passing urine before the operation, it is generally assumed that this is due to the prostate exclusively. There is a possibility that the bladder may also have some problems (hence it isn’t uncommon to have some symptoms even after the surgery). If the bladder is emptying urine against the pressure on the prostate, then once this obstruction is removed it may not be able to adjust back, so you have an increased pressure to pass urine. Discuss the problem with your doctor, there are medical therapies available, and if these fail, there are corrective surgeries that can be offered as well. Stay positive.
