Hi everyone, I'm new here,
Just diagnosed with BPH and urine retention was admitted to hospital as an emergency in order to be drained, awaiting TURP on 8th January 2020.
Blood pressure was very high prior to draining also had swollen ankles now BP is excellent and swollen ankles are back to normal.
A year ago my eGFR was 85 but in early November 2019 when my urine retention was found the eGFR was 54 and creatinine was 120.
The consultant has said the he expects an improvement in both numbers after the TURP but it was the Blood pressure readings which fell drastically from 148/100 to 116/77 after the bladder was drained which amazed me.
Hope this info helps someone.
Best wishes to all
