I've been dealing with PBH issues for several years now. The issues were gradually getting worse. In January I had a bout of prostatitis and the Doc commented that the prostate felt enlarged on DRE. The prostatitis subsided and we tried Uroxatral which made me dizzy. We then tied Cialis and I can't say I noticed much improvement. They then recommended a bladder scan. Instead I decided to pursue a PAE and had it done in April. my symptoms improved minimally. I wised up and had the bladder scan done in August. The Uro noted that my prostate did not appear enlarged and while we could see my median lobe protruding a bit into the bladder wall. Everything looked great. He decided to approach it from a possible OAB standpoint and put me on oxybutynin which did absolutely nothing. We then decided to try Proscar after a friend recommended it. A week of that and I noticed a marked decrease in my libido.
I have been on testosterone replacement therapy for 3 years and I am thinking it could possibly be causing or exacerbating my BPh. I tried greatly reducing my dose and even stopping but I felt horrible when I did that.
At this point I am at a loss as to what to do.
