I just wanted to report to the group posting here that my PAE procedure has improved my condition to a point that I wanted to share this information with the board. My flow is improved. I hope this improvement continues and I look forward to continued improvement at 1 month and beyond.

It looks like I will fall in the 80-90% group that is helped.

take care

Lou

    Thanks again,

      At UNC, if you pay by yourself, it is around 7500, if your insurance can pay the CT, it will be around 6500. BCBS rejected to cover after a urologist claim PAE is not eligible for insurance to cover, what can you say!
