    @peter44697 Hi Peter, I am 71 HAD obstructive median lobe with small prostate (35cc). Severe BPH, OAB, and LUTS. Today is day 5 of Holep using En-Bloc Tech. Four days of with catheter hell. I am so fortunate to have well known Holep surgeon here in middle tn. to perform. She removed all enlarged median lobe and side laterals on prostate removal. Yes, there was bleeding, some very small clots voided. Day 5, voiding like a teenager, very little residual pain, drinking 8-10 glasses water, no caffeine, no alcohol, eating anything I want. 6 Weeks is recovery, with restrictions on lifting. Thats it, no more flomax, HOWEVER, continue Myrebetriq for 6 weeks. Constipation and bladder control with Kegel exercises for immediate future. Very pleased at this point, as mentioned, time will tell.
