I am 47 and have been dealing with BPH for about six years. Four of those years I have been on Uroxatrol with ok results but the drug has been losing its efficacy and it has given me heartburn and dizzy spells especially when I get up from kneeling. The actual procedure was more painful for me than others on here have indicated but my BP spiked slightly so they could only give me a limited amount of Versed and Fentanyl. Procedure went perfect and as of now, I feel no effects of somebody ablating my most private of areas. Dr K and nurse Samantha are exactly as advertised. I cannot say enough good things about them. She is extremely caring and personable and he is so involved on making his patients understand EVERYTHING. He also goes above and beyond.....an example.....I had to have my cath put in the day before the procedure (yesterday) because my URO could not get a cath in the last time a had a cystoscope. Well Dr K got one to go in (thank god or I could not have had the procedure) but it gave me extremely painful bladder spasms. I noticed this after I left his office. When I got to the hotel, the spasms made me p*ss all over myself. Unsure of what was happening, I called Dr K. An hour later HE CAME TO MY HOTEL ROOM to check on me!!!! I thought house calls stopped back in the 60's??? My catheter does bother me and is, at times, painful at the tip of my penis. Spasms still occurs but is becoming more tolerable.
I will update in two -three weeks.
