Well it's finally happening, after much research and great help from the men on this forum, I'm heading to VA for PAE with Dr. Bagla. I will try to keep a journal here for everyone.
I am almost 70, and have been dealing with LUTS almost certainly caused by BPH. My prostate when measured by 3T MRI about a year and a half ago was 98 cc. No telling what it is now. I have been on tamsulosin for a little over 2 years, at first daily, and in the past several months every other day because the side effects are quite difficult to for me to deal with. During the 24 hrs after I take a pill, my LUTS are greatly diminished. The next 24 hrs the LUTS return in full force: great frequency and urgency for long stretches, dribbling, and great difficulty in passing urine the first time I wake at night. Up 2 to 4 times a night depending to some extent whether or not I have taken the pill that afternoon. Don't really have other tests or info about the "before" condition, but feel free to ask away. The IPSS score is rather erratic due to the every other day regime with the meds.
