Dear Friends, I made really detailed and long investigation about treatment of similar signs of BPH as I have. My prostate is just 50 ml (grams),, but with big median lobe ,which blocks bladder neck. This causes nearly full retention, sleep shortage, nocturia, and in time the necessity of CIC- self cathing. Pls note PAE in case of big median lobe has poor effects. I passed it last April . After few months of symptoms relief, the problems returned with bigger intensity. So I lost one year time. Yes all we have some options : TURP, GL, HOLEP, open prostatectomy ...new methods as Urolift, REZUM and FLA. It seems that for big median lobe is best REZUM and FLA . This is based on my long investigation and consultations with many patients and some doctors. REZUM is cheaper, probably covered by insurance , but still more random method in comparision with FLA.
US insurance unfortunatelly plays no role for me , I'm European citizen.
After detailed analyses of my problem - 3T MRi scannes, TRUS, PSA, PVR, e.t.c. I decided for FLA with full confidence to Dr. K I'm flying to USA next Easter Sunday on the route Vienna - Istanbul - Houston . Thank you very much for all advises and help. Good luck and strong hope and faith to all of us - suffering men . Stan
