Customer Question
I had a TUIP in...
I had a TUIP in January and my PVR greatly diminished from around 400 to 150. Still it works on my mind, especially on hot humid days when I drink 2 or 3 glasses or water and a long times later void a couple of ounces. Urine is dark. Should I be concerned? I am taking biofeedback training and seeing a urologist twice a year.

Dark urine can signify dehydration. You should drink 4-6 glasses of water per day to keep your urine clear. If your PVR goes up after drinking more water, you may need to be reevaluated and you may need a TURP (transurethral resetion of prostate) instead. Hope this helps and let me know if I can clarify anything.

Well, do you think it's just a function of the hot weather perhaps? Just within the last few weeks my output was much more normal. Honestly after this procedure I don't know what's normal anymore!
Urologist: Dr. Y., Urologist replied 8 years ago
the hot weather can certainly cause dehydration and a darkening of your urine problem. This is why it's very important to drink more water especially in the summer months. Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
