I thought I should let the group know about my successful FLA operation with Dr. K in Houston.
I had the operation on 6th July 2017. My prostate was 185cc - very large. The operation went by without any drama whatsoever. I was given some sort of local anesthetic which blocked all pain.I was awake throughout the entire procedure and assisted greatly throughout the entire 4-hour operation by Samatha, Dr. K's totally fantastic nursing assistant. I'm told that due to the size of my prostate I had 13 ablations; something of a record. After the operation, I had a catheter for 14 days to give time for the swelling to go down. It's now five weeks and I'm starting to notice the benefits. I'm not looking for toilets everywhere I go and I'm starting to sleep well - up only two or three times per night at the moment which is a massive improvement for me. Also, I should stress that sexual functions are normal with no retrograde ejaculation etc. I pretty confident things will get better and better. The five weeks recovery have seemed long and the 14 days with a catheter were uncomfortable but easily doable.
The support from Houston has been fantastic with the Dr. still regularly checking in on my progress by email. Also fantastic and invaluable was the support I got from other guys who have had the op - members of the K club - who were there for me and contactable all the time.
Anyone considering the operation from my part of the world (I live in Hong Kong) is welcome to contact me and can count on my support through the healing process.
Best wishes to all
