Indications for surgery

Removal of the prostate is carried out with certain indications. In most cases, doctors try to preserve most of the prostate gland. This body is necessary for a man to maintain hormone levels and the ability to conceive.

The prostate is responsible for producing the base of the ejaculate. In its parts there is a glandular tissue consisting of bubbles. They produce a liquid with certain chemical properties. It serves as a medium for maintaining the viability of sperm. Sperm cells can move freely in the ejaculate. Also, germ cells remain viable in secret for a long time.

The prostate gland provides a small amount of testosterone. The hormone is produced in the shell of the lobes. This amount allows you to maintain the correct activity of the hormonal system. With the defeat of the prostate a variety of ailments, these abilities are tripled.

Most of the pathologies of the gland can be eliminated with the help of medicinal and hardware effects. But there are a number of ailments that are only amenable to surgery. Prostatectomy is prescribed to patients with the following pathologies:

  • oncological lesion of the body;
  • the development of tumor;
  • strong squeezing of the urinary canal.

Removal is carried out with the defeat of tissue cancer. Cancer develops due to the activation of reproduction of atypical cells. These cells are available to all people. Under the influence of certain negative factors, the process of their reproduction starts. A few days in the prostate is formed oncological neoplasm. The operation is carried out in the early stages of the disease. Early diagnosis allows professionals to save most of the damaged tissue. Later, the intervention is accompanied by complete removal of the gland.

Excision is used in the development of complex adenoma. Adenoma also refers to tumor pathologies. Difference of the disease is the absence of cancer. Complicated pathology is accompanied by a strong separation of the prostate and its deformity. To preserve sexual function, doctors resort to surgery.

The lobes are located around the urinary canal below the sphincter of the bladder. This arrangement is necessary for proper removal of seminal fluid during sexual contact. But under the influence of various negative factors, iron is deformed. Damaged areas exert pressure on the channel walls. Observed obstruction of the urinary system. Removal of edema by a variety of drugs. If medication does not help, it is necessary to carry out surgery. The operation helps avoid bladder rupture and kidney damage.


Prostatectomy is also not shown to all people. Removal is not carried out when the oncological ailment is running. In this form of cancer, part of the tumor goes beyond the prostate. Lymph node metastasis may also be detected.

Surgery is also not recommended for the inflammatory nature of the disease. The operation becomes possible only after the elimination of acute inflammation of the prostate. If the organ is severely damaged, drug therapy is initially performed. Only after that doctors consider a prostatectomy.

In some cases, removal is recommended for urolithiasis. Intervention is prescribed for improper passage of stones through the ureters. The stone may be stuck in the channel and cause blockage. In this case, the account goes on for minutes.
Experts mark the growth of the group of patients undergoing prostatectomy. In recent years, an increase in the group of young men has been observed. Operations are carried out by both young people and older men. This is due to the spread of bad habits and a wrong way of life. This trend is alarming for specialists.

Possible complications after the intervention

Removal is not always complete for the patient. After the intervention, the following problems may appear:

  1. reduction of the lumen of the urinary canal;
  2. accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the pelvis;
  3. violation of sexual function;
  4. complete loss of sexual ability;

In rare cases, there is such a complication as an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the pelvis. Fluid builds up due to improper operation. Congestion causes significant tissue swelling. With a long process, it is necessary to re-intervene.

For many men, after prostatectomy , sexual function is not restored for a long time. This complication has a variety of symptoms. A sign of erectile failure is a change in the duration of the contact, the disappearance of arousal during sex, and an incomplete erection. Often, all of these problems disappear on their own. But individuals need additional treatment.

There is also a small category of people who completely lose their sexual ability. This pathology is called impotence. With this complication, an erection disappears completely. Sexual arousal occurs only when taking medication stimulants. If the problem persists 3 months after surgery, you should visit a doctor. He will establish the exact cause of impotence.

A rare disease is a violation of the process of ejaculation. Male ejaculation is accompanied by orgasm. With the right activity of the genitals, this function accompanies any sexual contact. After removal in some patients, ejaculation disappears. Sexual contact is not accompanied by orgasm. In this situation, you should undergo additional diagnostics. Only after diagnostic measures, the doctor selects methods for restoring impaired ejaculation.

In some cases, the patient has problems with urination. When the catheter-diverting improperly deriving function muscular layer is disturbed. Reduced contractility does not allow the sphincter wall to shrink tightly. It causes incontinence . Fluid may be expelled in drip or in small volumes with a sharp contraction of the abdominal muscles. This complication requires careful examination and increased control from the doctor.

Causes of complications

An important role is played by the immune system. Immunity is necessary to protect the body against attacks of pathogens. After removal, this ability of the system is reduced. To avoid additional problems, the patient must have a strong immunity. By reducing the protective properties of the body, recovery may take a long time.

Depends on the normalization and age characteristics. Healing and restoration of erection occurs faster with active renewal processes. Cellular renewal is faster in younger patients. In older men, this period can be long.

For rapid normalization of potency, you must strictly follow all the rules. Recommendations depend on the period. Each period is accompanied by certain rules that are voiced by the doctor. If a man does not adhere to the rules, additional health problems may arise.

In the first months after surgery, stimulants of potency should be taken for normal sex. These drugs stimulate the flow of blood to the cavernous bodies and increase the sensitivity of the nerve endings. Suchdrugs do not cure the pathology after removal. They serve as a temporary method of restoring potency.

Modern experts recommend the use of special local injections. The syringe contains a composition that fills the cavernous bodies. In this case, the man appears an erection. These drugs are not addictive. Also do not affect further sexual function.

In difficult cases, the restoration of potency becomes impossible. So that a man could lead a further sexual life, he needs to install a special device. It is installed in the base of the penis. The vacuum bulb is excreted under the scrotum. Before contact, the patient must be pressed several times on the pear. When this occurs, the expansion of the sphere at the base of the penis. There is erection of the penis. After contact, open the valve located on the pear. He bleeds the air. The sphere is shrinking. But such a restoration of potency is carried out only at the request of the man.
