Starting to get nervous. It's just a few days away.
Recently I have had a cytoscopy as well as a urodynamics test to 'see if I am a candadate' for Rezum. Because of back pressure while peeing, I was told that there was significant back pressure and that I was indeed a candicate for Rezum. Doc told me that I would have to have a catheter for a week or so. That does not bother me as I am taking a week off of work.
I thought I did my homework and Rezum seemed to have the least side effects with the most degree of success. The Cytoscopy and Urodynamics wasn't fun but was tolerable with local anastesia being inserted into my urethra 20 minutes prior to insertion. All this talk of retrograde ejac and immense pain is making me think twice. What bothers me is the thought of the large diameter of the device being inserted. (Basically a dog trying to fit into a birdhouse??) Grrrrr??
How does this procedure compare to the cytoscopy and/or the urodynamics? What else should I expect?
How does the doc know where and how many blasts of steam are needed?
