Customer Question
I had TURP for...

I had TURP for BPH surgery two years ago and never had a problem re an ejaculation, however after the surgery I can no longer reach a climax. Is this a temporary side effect? My MD never discussed potential side effects after this surgery. Thanks,

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Spoke with my internal medicine health care provider and did not provide any information. I am not on any medication.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

None. I am 71 years old and never had any problem with this type of side effect in my entire life.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
