Preparing for prostate surgery at Spire Methley Park Hospital

Coming into hospital

We're on Methley Lane (the A639) - approximately 1.5 miles from junction 30 of the M62. The hospital is well served by rail stations with Castleford station 3 miles away, Wakefield 7 miles away and Leeds station 10 miles away. There’s free parking available for you and your visitors.

Meeting your consultant

You’ll meet your consultant in one of our consultation rooms. You’ll discuss:

  • Your symptoms and medical history
  • If your consultant requires any additional tests or scans to help plan your treatment
  • Alternative treatments or lifestyle changes which may help
  • What the treatment involves and procedure options
  • Potential benefits and risks of prostate surgery

You may also need a pre-operative assessment with a specialist nurse before going ahead with treatment. This is to ensure you're fit and well enough for surgery.

Prostate surgery: your procedure

We offer transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). For this procedure:

  • A special instrument is passed through your urethra and a small, electrically-heated wire is used to trim small pieces of prostate tissue
  • You'll have a general anaesthetic, so you'll be asleep throughout
  • You’ll need a urinary catheter for around one to three days after the operation

Your consultant will be able to explain the procedure in full detail and answer any questions you may have during your consultation.

TURP usually takes from 45 minutes to an hour. If you’ve come with a friend or family member, they’re welcome to wait in your private room while you have your operation.

After surgery, you'll have a urinary catheter until the swelling in your urethra has gone down, allowing you to pass urine normally again. This will be taken out by one of our nurses before you leave hospital – which is usually two nights after your operation. You'll stay in one of our private, en-suite rooms.

Please note laser prostate surgery is not available at Spire Methley Park Hospital.

Talking about prostate surgery

Prostate surgery: your recovery

Our nurses will provide you with medication to help you manage any pain following your operation. They’ll also give you advice about over-the-counter medications you can use while at home, and anything you should or shouldn’t do.

Your recovery time will depend on the procedure you've had and your overall health. Although everyone’s different and you should always follow your consultant’s advice, here’s a typical timeline for transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP):

1-3 days

Catheter is removed and you can leave hospital

1-3 weeks

Driving and gentle walking

3-4 weeks

Back to desk-based job and sex if you’re comfortable enough

4-8 weeks

Full recovery
