iTind or Water Ablation, Anybody??

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi All,

In my continued search for an effective, low side-effect solution to BPH, I've got  a short list of procedures that seem interesting. Have been following the FLA posts closely and thanks to those who are blazing that trail and reporting on it!

I've seen a few posts on iTind, but not recently, and there seem to be mixed results. I'm wondering if anyone suffered any permanent damage from it??

And this new Water Ablation procedure seems quite interesting but I don't see much on it. Anyone know anything?

Any information greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Fred

    Hi Light1

    I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  In January my doctor recommended water ablation. I never heard of it before so I didnt pay much attention.  Now I'm seeing it discussed fairly often so when I see him again in a month I will go in to more details

    The reason I'm writing to you is to let you know that you may have the option of getting experienced doctors, a better price on the procedure and and combining it with some sightseeing by doing it here.

    I am very very impressed with the doctors here.  They are cautious but extremely competent and caring.  

    I don't know if any of this is useful to you, hope it is.

    Good luck.

    There are couple of discussions on this forum about Aquablation. 1 or 2 have had it done so far are happy with the results. My understanding is that it spares all sexual function so retrograde ejaculations shouldn't happen with it.

    The is also a discussion regarding iTind. I don't remember how well it worked for the fellow that had it done.

    Im thrse fellows will shoe up soon. In the mean time try doing a search and see what pops up.

    Light....I know this does not answer your question but please look into FLA with Dr. K. I had mine done on 4/28 and will be reporting my six month update this weekend.  So far the reults are great with zero side effects.

      Hi Trustme,

      Thanks for the note. I'm quite interested in FLA and it's on my short list. I've just gotten to the point after a year of CIC that I need the freedom that comes with being able to urinate like a normal person, and not carry around catheters. If there's any other information about Dr. K that you think would be useful, I'd appreciate receiving it. Thanks, best wishes, and good luck with your own recovery.

      Best,

      Fred

      Hey Trustme, glad to hear it went well. Dr. K is the absolute boom of a doctor. Hope you are really doing good in the process and if you need anything give me a call.
