Anyone had HoLEP procedure with Dr James Roberts, San Diego, CA, USA ?
How was your experience ? I followed up on a tip from this forum and called his office. It's true that he does the procedure. When asked how long he has been doing HoLEP, the nurse answer was: "Geezzz! Since he started working in this office and it has been a long time ago." I was told the procedure will be done at either Sharp or Mercy hospitals in San Diego, but he is booked well into May.
The good news is they do take my Medicare Advantage HMO, but I need to get a referral from my PCP first. No more pills ? No more catheters ? Wow! I am so excited at the prospect. Having HoLEP done in my hometown, with insurance covering it. 😀
HoLEP is by far my preferred choice. Second is bipolar TURP. Sure, it comes with some risks. Retro ejaculation risk at 75% ? I already have RE from my doxazosin. It would then be a positive since it means I would have 25% chance of no longer have RE. Incontinence risks ? I think I can handle the few months of temporary incontinence, or even the 1% of permanent. In return, I might be able to forget the pills, the catheters for a long, long time.
