64 years of age, in February 2017, completing the Phoenix marathon in 2.33 I went into AUR...ER visit, follow-up visits with a local urologist and trying to learn about prostate problems from the internet and this forum from thousands of men in similar situations followed. My PSA was close to 10, the urologist wanted to do a Turp, biopsy. I declined. Had an MRI taken in Houston which came out fine. Was curious about Urolift, but due to the median lobe the urologist declined. Thought about Laser ablation, came across about a new trial method called I-tind (it is approved in Israel, Spain and Switzerland) and now under trial in the USA. Due to the median lobe growing into the bladder this was not an option neither. Finally decided for a laser PVP procedure in Houston and had it done on Monday October 30, 2017. I felt an immediate improvement from day 1, had almost no blood in urine from the beginning. Tissue was examined and tests came back negative, so all good. I hope the recovery continues well and the stream and flow will keep up. The doctor mentioned that there is a 33 % chance of retrograde ejaculation. I think the outlook to be able to relieve normally again is worth the risk. I woke up after surgery, had no pain at all, never took any pain medication and urination was painfree from the beginning, not even burning. Now, if everybody could have my type of experience, I can only recommend to do it without fear. If anybody wants to hear more in detail, don't hesitate to contact me, I gladly pass it on! Good luck to all of you! Also, thank you for all the postings which helped me getting more understanding of what other men go through.
