Patient Experience

Dr. P. C. Joshi

Ahmedabad - India

I was Practicing Anesthesiologist from 1973 till 2006. At present I am working as Research Coordinators.

I have anaesthetized patients for all types of B.P.H. Surgery varying from Freyer’s Millind Prostetectomy and all stages of TURP. I have witnessed various types of immediate and late complications of all types of prosthetic Surgery.

When it came to me to be a patient requiring BPH surgery, myself & my wife who is also a medico, were very much confused which path to be choose. Over & above I was on oral clopidogrel for my bilateral carotid plague since 2002. After my initial per – rectal prosthetic biopsy I had repeated intermittent haematura after restarting clopidogrel – which was an added concern for both of us.

We have repeatedly seen Dr. Bhupendra Panchal Sahebs article on Holmium Laser treatment for BPH & other urological conditions.

We hade consulted him at his private consultation clinic. His ever helping staff in their polite language, explained with the use of CD, various advantages of the surgery.

Finally, we have decided to go ahead with HOLEP surgery by Dr. Panchal Saheb.

During my immediate post – operative period urinary catheter was there for hardly 16 to 18 hours. There was no irrigation line & colour of the urine was normal not even on darkish side – immediately after surgery. Catheter was removed after 16 to 18 hour of surgery.

I was tacking good amount of fluid & barring little barring during maturation which was quite expected. I had very little hematuria which was not significant for 2 to 3 days which stopped completing within 2 to 3 days.

My uroflowmetry done after 10th day of surgery showed marked improvement in comparison with pre op reading.

I don’t have night frequency, urgency or even dribbling problem after 20 to 21 days post operatively.

Haematuria is absolutely a no problem even after be stootiy clopiclogred again.

My experience with HULEP surgery is excellent & can recommend without any hesitation to other similar & even more complicated subjects like that of malignant prostate & other associated medical condition.
