Transurethral Microwave Therapy (TUMT) for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
What To Expect After Surgery
You are typically able to go home after surgery. You may not be able to urinate and may need catheterization to drain your bladder. For most men, this lasts for a week or less.
You can typically return to work 1 to 2 days after treatment. Sexual activity can be resumed 1 to 2 weeks after surgery.
