    I'm not sure what your planning to do. Have you discussed this with a urologist before.

    I have had retention problems on and off since my youth. Later in life my prostate and unfortunately a stretched bladder that holds 400-500 mm before I have had an urge to pee. And I have to try and relax and strain just to get urine out. I never fully emptied my bladder.

    4 days ago I had a Urolift done and my experience so far has been very uncomfortable with minor complications. Ism urinating easier but some days are better then others.

    Start with Urolift first and go from there.

    I am the same, I call it MEDICAL ANXIETY! I am 3 weeks post PAE and couldn't be happier.

    I was sure that whatever complications from this procedure could arise, would arise! I was sure that in my case there would be NEW complications that no one even knew about or ever heard of. I was sure that the doctor would make some careless mistake that would leave me suffering for the rest of my life! I held off even making a a doc appointment for many years AND I refused to take drugs because I have prescription drug anxiety as well!

    All I can say is that the whole procedure was very traumatic for me ( although probably very mild in reality! ) The hospital, the operating room, the nurses , the medications, the whole thing. In and out in one day.

    For me the second day was very tough, I was regretting the decision and it was very uncomfortable and painful. I was cursing at myself and GOD! But after the 3rd day things began to improve so much and today, only 3 weeks later... I feel like I have almost forgotten what my old BPH symptoms were; Urgency, dribbling, not being able to hold it in, and if I did hold it in for too long not being able to pee at all or triggering a chain reaction for several days following holding in too long. All of these symptoms were "normal" and now practically forgotten!

    You will be fine! Be prepared for some discomfort and let us know about your progress. I am very happy with my results so far!
