unsuccessful prostectome

on august 13th 45 grams was removed from my prostate.  since then bladder capacity has reduced from 350 to 260ml, discomfort in penis prevents jogging, passing urine always has some discomfort, sudden need to urinate has caused a few 'accidents'.  most worrying, all ejaculation is retrograde.  i was warned there was a slight risk of this.  what remedies are available for the latter and other dissappointing symptoms?

Hi,
    How are you? Resection of prostrate by TURP method is done for an enlarged prostrate. There could be certain after effects of the surgery like a little bleeding, and a stronger than usual desire to pass urine are quite common in the first six months after the operation.
You may also have some discomfort on passing urine for two to six weeks. The full benefits of the operation may not be felt for about 2-3 months. Inability to control the flow of urine is very rare after a prostate operation, but can happen.

The other important longterm side effect after a resection of prostrate is done is retrograde ejaculation. This happens because the surgery makes it possible for semen to travel back up into the bladder rather than out through the penis at the time of orgasm.
This shouldn't interfere with sex and, after recovery from the operation, most men return to the same level of sexual activity as before the treatment. Retrograde ejaculation doesn't mean that you can't father children, but it may reduce your fertility.

Alternative medicinal principles are practised for retrograde ejaculation, but success rates are very low and there is no scientific approach in these methods. I would suggest to wait till 6 months for complete recovery and practise a healthy life style.
Take care.
