As I posted on here last week, I scheduled a Rezum for October 23rd, then found this website the same day and since then I’v had second thoughts about doing it, but today after walking around with a half full bladder, distended as if I’m pregnant and peeing constantly I’m probably going to go ahead and do it. I’m sure It’s not get any better which I hate to admit.
I’ve had BPH for years and it was tolerable until May of this year when I got persistent prostatitis. Since then my bladder does not empty, I’m peeing small amounts constantly and I’m not getting much sleep. It’s been miserable. I have median lobe involvement and a 79 cc prostate so the doc told me he would more than likely have to give me 10 injections
If you don’t mind I have some questions for those of you who have had the procedure or have knowledge of it. It will be done under general anesthesia, thank God, so I’m thinking about asking the doc to go ahead and put in foley cath in while i’m under ( he may do it with out asking) then when I get home I can at least get some sleep for several days and not worry about having to go to the ER to be cathed while I’m awake which scares me to death. Of course after they take the cath out I still might have problems peeing. I’m sure being cathed after the procedure and you are sore, while awake is probably is not fun. Tell me where I’m going wrong here.
Next I’m wondering about pain meds. Should I ask for something stronger than over the counter meds. And burning when I pee is there something he can give me for that. I guess what I want to find out is what should I ask him for before I leave the hospital so I don’t wake up in the middle of the night with problems and wonder what to do. I would like to be as prepared as possible. I would love any advice you all can give me to make this at least a little more tolerable. Thanks in advance.
