TURP Assistance Please

My doc performed a TURP. After the patient got into the recovery room, he began to bleed into the catheter. Although the doctor tried bladder irrigation in the recovery room, he made the decision to take him back to the operating room for control of post-op bleeding.
I noticed that the CPT code 52601, covers a prostate removal as well as post-operative bleeding control. In light of this, can I charge for the 2nd return to the OR?
