I have Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) where my prostate has grown to 100cc. I am 60 years old and I am scheduled for surgery in ten days. The doctor will be using the Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) method to remove tissue around the urethra.

The doctor said the we may not be able to remove all the material in one operation and he may need a second operation to finish the job. Does this sound correct? Do urologists need to go back a second time to finish TURP surgery.
