    My Uro said the same thing. I was preparing mentally for REZUM. He told me he wasn't ready to go that route. I'm on a 6 week program of Myrbetriq to calm my bladder. About half way through it. No significant changes yet.

    After my TURP I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis. I can also tell you that Vesicare was much more helpful for my bladder than Myrbetriq was. Good luck.

    My uro shared the same diagnosis with me. I had a urolift to no avail and had a uro-dynamics done which failed to reveal any conclusion. He now has referred for pelvic floor therapy. So, will keep you posted once I have my first appointment.

    Lew,

    .

    There is a big difference between "think" and "know". To know if you have bladder damage, your new urologist should do a cystoscopy to look at your bladder for damage and urodynamics tests to quantify bladder damage. This is very standard procedure before any BPH procedure whether it be Rezum, TURP, etc.
