Just thought I'd inform anyone interested that a week ago this 70-year-old UK citizen had a self-funded HoLEP procedure at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge.
Consultant urologist Mr Aho informed me the procedure went very well. And I think to confirm that, after only five days, at least to my naked eye, blood in my urine disappeared.
I've had absolutely no pain at all. The only transient discomfort was when peeing, as a little stinging was evident. But this disappeared after about 4 or 5 days.
My flow rate has dramatically increased. Incredibly I can now push out 300 mL in 10 seconds. Frequency has more than halved.
But crucially importantly, the prior dreadful quality-of-life negatively affecting 'void urgency' has disappeared.
So just one week post operation I'm now confident my three separate painful emergency full retention/haematuria trauma hospital stay admission episodes of recent months are very much a thing of the past.
My only regret is I didn't have this HoLEP procedure quite some years ago.
My very grateful thanks to all forum members who take time to contribute, educate and assist fellow BPH sufferers in their various difficulties and battles.
I think it's fair to say that thanks to modern science , ingenious inventions, highly skilled clinicians and hospital staff , I now have a much enhanced freedom quality of life!
