I first noticed difficulty urinating 14 years ago when I was 37. At 50, two years ago, DRE suggested abnormality. DRE last year -the same thing:- '
"it does not feel right" Both years PSA is 4.8. GP referred to urologist at age 51 who prescribed Tamsulosin. To the end, I strain to urinate and carry pee bottle with me in the car and in my office. Last month cystoscopy reveals bladder stone and BPH. Prostate biopsy ultrasound measures my prostate to be 103 cc in volume. Ct scan ob abdomen/kidneys was normal except for large prostate. I was close to renal backup after these procedures so I am using a Foley Catheter. The 30 year 'veteran' urologist suggested TURP while tomorrow the Gleason score will be returned. Each man must decide carefully own his own but your comments are appreciated.
