Regular ejaculation after Laser Enucleation
An_245905 posted:
I am 67, I had a calcification in my prostrate. A doctor removed it by laser enucleation, which occurred on Dec 19, 2011. I have been having retrograde ejaculations ever since, like a lot of you. Today, though, I had a regular ejaculation instead of a retrograde ejaculation. I am wondering now was this a miracle or is there something wrong. I am still having problems emptying my bladder completely and it seems like I am always going. Is there anyone out there that this has happened to? I need feedback
counterso responded:
This may be a one time occurrence or it could be an improvement. There's a valve that directs the flow of fluids, and if the valve is damaged as it often is during surgery, retrograde ejaculation is a frequent result. So long as you're not trying to procreate, that's not really much of a problem.

Your external ejaculation isn't anything worrisome, and may be lucky. I guess you won't know until it does or doesn't happen again.

The urgency/frequency issue is something else entirely, and related to your prostate gland, not a valve.
