Holap abrasion

Posted , 10 users are following.

Struggling with BPH sense 1994,mostly low flow, Tried Urolift in office without anesthesia and couldn't complete so I went to Mayo Phoenix doctor Humphrey to do HOLEP. After ultrasound found prostate only 340cubic centimeters but plugged. Solid.

,to small for HOLEP. ,so changed my procedure to Holap, a little slower than Greenlight and holium more precise. Did Friday morning at 7.15am,got home by noon, put cath in till Monday.

Absolutely no pain, urine clear all weekend, couple Drops blood at penis head, he used big cath,

Went in at 9.30 to remove cath, used fill flush to get out, came out without pain, a little pink when removed but cleared up immediately, Went to Cracker barrel, had lunch, 1 1/2 hour drive to Camp Verde,

Have to step back 2 steps to pee absolutely no pain or burning , had more pain with Urolift recovery.

Flow is like in 20s again, they took tissue sample and no cancer.

Can't believe I didn't get this done years ago.
