had the proceedure on August 6th 2014 at UNC hospital. I had been experiencing bhp since my mid 30's and am now 60. I have been on uroxotrol for the last 10 years or more. My local urologist had recommended the turp proceedure because of infections primarily from bladder retention. I read about the pae proceedure and decided to try this because of reduced side effects. The proceedure took much longer than expected (4 hrs.) because the right side of the prostate had much smaller blood vessels than the left. I was releasd that day to go home with a catheter because of retainege and with no meds for pain. The pain was much worse than I thought it would be and lasted for the first week. I had experienced some mild incontinence ( occasional dribbling) before the proceedure but afterwards it has gotten worse. It has been five months and after some improvement initially I seem to have regressed. Currently I am seeing a urologist at UNC for the incontinence problem who is telling me I am going to have to have the turp because the pae proceedure did not help my problem. Has anyone out there had similar experiences.
