My BPH (Enlarged Prostate) started sudden and severe state at 2010.
I will not explain the healing process. We decided to continue with medication.
I went to John Hopkins (2014) and went through the whole nine yard of Dynamic test and other evaluation to do the green laser surgery. My wonderful GP voted against it mainly because of known side effect.
Avodart increasing side effect on sexual incompetence and other physical side effects are overwhelming. Hence I have started going through Prostatic Artery Embolization (PAE) process.
We reside close to INOVA Alexandria Hospital, VA.
They are very organized and responsive.
Documents were emailed to me, upon completion and my request they provided an interview time. I will explain in more detail what I found out about the procedure and expectations from the interview (2-2-16).
I had my detail prostate MRI with Contrast agents yesterday (2-4-16)
The MRI will show in detail if I am a good candidate for this procedure or not. Not everyone is.
If I decided that the PAE will improve my condition, we will be scheduled for end of February or beginning of March.
