For men who suffer from large gland benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)—an enlargement of the prostate that is not linked to cancer—surgery to alleviate the symptoms has traditionally come with a list of unfavorable risks: urinary incontinence, impotence and urinary tract infections, to name a few.
Often, when patients are told they require surgery, they prepare by considering what needs to happen for their physical needs and recovery. They plan who will help them, they take time off from work, and they determine insurance coverage, household matters and physical needs of recovery. Most do not consider the impact the surgery could have on their mental health.
