There is a new surgical procedure for BPH called Aquablation - FDA approved in the USA this year. I had it done ten days ago. After decades of suffering, I am already feeling the benefits of a normal happy bladder. I can finally empty, have a strong stream and go for three to six hours between feeling any need to urinate. Still a trickle of blood comes out once in a while, so I am still healing. Its only been ten days!
Aquablation uses high velocity saline water jets to remove prostate tissue with the "Aquabeam" robot. No heat, vapor, laser, hardware left in prostate, etc. Same outcome as TURP without sexual side effects or long recovery.
My advice to BPH sufferers seeking an effective procedure: no large median lobe, consider doing PAE (I had mine done several years ago, but my large median lobe remained a problem); otherwise, consider doing an Aquablation. Google it!
Anyone else out there who has had an Aquablation?
