i see there are so many options for treating bph. I'm wondering what peoples experience/efficacy has been with the following...(found these on webmd)
did it cure urinary frequency? urge to go? etc?
Transurethral microwave therapy (TUMT). This procedure uses a microwave antenna attached to a flexible tube that your doctor inserts into your bladder. The microwave heat kills off excess prostate tissue.
Transurethral needle ablation (TUNA). Your doctor inserts a heated needle into the prostate through the urethra, the tube that carries urine and semen through the penis. This destroys extra prostate tissue.
UroLift system. The UroLift system is the first permanent implant for BPH. It works by pulling back the prostate tissue that is pressing on the urethra.
Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Your doctor removes portions of the prostate that are affecting your urinary flow. This is the most common type.
Transurethral incision of the prostate (TUIP). This surgery does not involve removing prostate tissue. A few small cuts are made in the prostate to reduce the gland's pressure on the urethra, making urination easier. This procedure is an option for some men, such as those with smaller prostates.
