As I have mentioned in posts elsewhere on this forum, I am considering treatment for my retention and severe nocturia issues and have to make a decision soon - up last night at 4 am with little sleep after - multiple trips to the bathroom. Just can't take this anymore. A bipolar TURP is one option that is available to me and covered by my insurance (Kaiser) and can be done at the local Kaiser hospital, two miles from my house. My other option is a second PAE, or Greenlight. Urolift wouldn't work due to median lobe.
So, on this forum there are two schools of thought about the bipolar TURP. The first is that it's a dangerous and terrible thing to do, and the second is that it works with excellent results, and the post operation effects are minimal. The negative comments seem to be coming from men who have not had this done, and the positive comments are coming from men who have actually had the operation.
Just wanted to point this out as I was reading more TURP comments this morning....
