Now that I've got your attention again!
Thanks again for your support and advice. I do know what I am doing as I had this procedure about 15 years ago!
It's called a TURP = TransUrethral Resection of the Prostate.
An endoscopic instrument is passed through the opening of the penis through to the prostate and some of the centre of the prostate is removed, rather like taking the core out of an apple. This enables the man to expell urine more easily. The procedure has been refined over the years and is very successful these days.
I'm sure that Ray knows all about this procedure.
