In fact it is often the catheter placed during surgery that causes problems.
Ask them about this, and ask them to watch it with the size of the catheter.
Surgeons in fact tend to blame this on the prostate gland, but in fact the catheter will exacerbate and problem there.
In addition, the surgery itself often causes paralysis to the bowels and bladder temporarily.
This is exacerbated by pain medications.
Getting off any narcotics fast will help with this.
Reducing the trauma of surgery by getting microdisc surgery/laser center surgery, if indicated, will also affect the time you need any catheter, and drastically shorten it. So ask about this as well.
Additional information: I shrink prostate glands in my integrative practice routinely. I can go into this, which is a different topic, if you find me by request in medical on a new post.
All prostate medications have side effects that can happen. Check this on any specific
medication you might be prescribed, and check interactions with any other medications. I realize this is not what you asked, and that we don't know if you have prostate problems or not.
