"The pain boss, the pain"

Okay, I have to ammend my last post. There is some pain - and it starts with P and ends with eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
I called to make sure this was normal. I was told that it is and that the pain can last up to six weeks following TURP. I may be dealing with something that is 30 times more common in women than men - Urinary Tract Infection or UTI. My urologist is thinking about prescribing something similar to AZO, but has not yet done so.
A lot of things went up my urethra, now it hurts when something comes down it.

Sorry to hear that the recovery is being disturbed. Remember to drink lots of water for proper dilution. The other scenario of walking around with a permanently installed pipe and valve 'down there' would be much more unpleasant.

You are correct. The AZO has turned my pee the most brilliant shade of orange.
