    Never heard of it. I have used Pageum, Saw Palmetto, Stinging Nettle, Zinc and Beta Sitosterol and none of that stuff worked for me. That's why I had the REZUM procedure and the jury is still out on that one.

    Never tried that one, but I think I tried almost every other "natural" remedy known to man with no discernable positive results, other than saw palmetto made me impotent. I finally went with REZUM back in June. I can urinate pretty well now. And no nasty side-effects!

    I tried a bunch of the natural remedies and a couple of prescription drugs, none of which helped at all.

    Eventually, I had the green light procedure. Very unpleasant, frankly, but pretty much solved the problem.

      My problem was because I am on blood thinner. I hemorrhaged and ended up in intensive care for 3 days. Otherwise I am happy with the results. It has been about 6 years ago.

      I was on Warfarin when I had my second laser procedure. I stopped it as instructed two days before but did bleed more than when I had the GL. They sent me home with a catheter in and my output was always a bit tinged but as soon as it was remove it was crystal clear.

      I had no pain and recovery was more or less instant. I travelled home by train on the second day and went to the races on day three. I just had spurts of blood at the start of urination for the first few days. There should not be bleeding as the laser seals the surface as it goes leaving a scab that bits will later detach from and be passed in your urine.

      Have you ever watched a doctor performing GL on Youtube there are plenty of examples.

    Has he had all the prostate tests or are you just assuming it's his prostate.

    Is he keeping a record of his output.

    Rachael,

    .

    My advice is to have your father see a urologist and not mickey mouse around with any new age nonsense formulas. I tried saw palmetto and it was a worthless waste of my money. The urologist should have him take the IPSS to see how bad his BPH is and a bladder ultrasound to see how bad his retention is. These are usually the first two steps. Once this information is know, the urologist will recommend the next step. Carefully research the urologist that you chose first! I had a Rezum which fixed my BPH problem.

    .

    Good luck,

    .

    Steve

    I second this advice from Steven05114: "...have your father see a urologist and not mickey mouse around with any new age nonsense formulas."

    I tried saw palmetto and pygeum. Neither did anything. I was on an alpha-blocker for several years but finally had a TURP and couldn't be happier with the results. Only a urologist can diagnose the problem and suggest the possible solution(s).

    What country are you in? There are scams everywhere. Anyhow urinating frequently is better than no urination. There is medication to slow it down by prescription.
