    Bleeding 4 months after a TURP is not common, however, clearly the strenuous activity is causing this to occur. It is not likely to be related to an infection.  More likely, there are probably some superficial blood vessels that have not yet healed and may need to be given time to do so. The use of medications that thin the blood may also be contributing to this.
