If you read my "What if Urolift does not work?" topic you will see I had a Urolift on March 25 and it caused my flow to be worse and I have a slight burning sensation in that area of the Urethra. It has been getting worse so I changed my appointment with my Urologist for today, July 30, 2019.
I did find out my prostate is not large and that I did not have a Median Lobe??
I left there feeling disappointed with the visit for these reasons. He wants to do another FLOW Test that I am sure will show I am worse than before the Urolift. He suggested I take the BPH drugs like Flomax (Tamulosin) or Rapaflo, that cause RE, to help with the flow, but I feel that is only covering up the problem with the Urolift that should have made my flow better. I will try the drugs again after my FLOW Test on 7/13 so they won't affect the test .
I asked him if he could remove the clips in the Urethra and he said I might have a worse problem if he did that. He said they only usually remove the clips if the anchor is in the bladder. He suggested a "Bipolar TURP" over the Urolift clips and I said no and that if I did anything like that it would be a lazer type TURP. He also said that I might want a second opinion and I feel that would be a good idea before I end up damaged for good.
I am presently looking for a good Urologist that uses a lazer like procedure in case I need a TURP. Hopefully, I can find one that will remove the clips before a TURP if needed, and maybe do it withour causing RE. I will wait until after the FLOW Test and then start taking some of the BPH drugs to see if will help until I can find a better doctor.
Does anyone know how you can find a good Urologist????
