After having the Rezum performed in May 2016, the urinary retention improved drastically. Then last week I was in a state of high anxiety, for three consecutive days I was unable to void or defecate, and had to resort to self cathing. My fear was that the prostrate had become reoccluded, if that is the correct term. At any rate I called the Cleveland Clinic and Dr. Ulchalker, who performed the Rezum, returned my call within an hour.
He opined that heavy fecal accumulation could be responsible or it could be a UTI. So I opted for the Miralax option and within six hours, and several trips to the bathroom, I was able to void again. Today I voided 650ml.with a PVR of 150ml. Unfortunately my GI specialist has not been especially aggressive in treating the constipation, so I'm trying some different options on my own.
I'm completely satisfied with the Rezum and hope that if anyone has it performed, their experience will be pain free both peri and post operative, as was my case.
