The sampling technique used was purposive sampling with a total of 10 respondents and treated by controlling a deep breath. The test used is a paired t-test with. The results showed that the treatment was effective in reducing pain levels in patients with TURP Surgery. The effectiveness of controlling deep breath giving p-value = 0.000 with the mean of pain level decreasing about 2.1.
