Hello all. We on here are only a part of the world of men that need help with there male problem's, At least 70 years ago the only procedure there was for men's BPH problems was the TURP Procedure. It worked very well for years and they are still doing them now. But there are do many men that did not like the side effects. Having it done puts a lot of changes in your life. Over the last 30 years Doctor's have come up with many other procedure for BPH. That is a good thing and a bad thing. What do we do. Now they do not make a one size fit's all procedure. Maybe one day. We can all ways hope. We have to take in a lot of thing's. We should be put through many test by the doctor to give us the knowledge we need to make that choice. They have come up with many versions of Turp now. You have Button Turp and Ejaculation Persevering Turp. They came up with this one because some men want to keep there ejaculation. They also so it in A Holep procedure to. The only thing with these surgery you have to fine a doctor to do them. It is very important to fine a good doctor. Ask questions talk with some of his patients to see how they did with the procedure. If your doctor just want to rush you through after 10 minutes you need to fine another doctor. Now over the last 10 years we have had many other less evasive procedure. If that is the way you want to go. You have Urolift, Rezum and PAE. Urolift is were they go in and clip the prostate apart to make the tunnel with no cutting. With this on you have no side effects. Rezum is another procedure that there is no cutting. It is done by steam injection into the prostate. You can get from 4 to 12 injection. It all depends on the size of your prostate. There is a chance of retro ejaculation but it about 10% could be higher or lower. Depends on the doctor you have. PAE is Prostate Artery Embolization. This is done by a Radiologist and he would but little pellets in the vein to stop the blood flow to the prostate. Now over the last few year they have come up with a couple of new Procedure. FLA and Aquablation. Focal Laser Ablation is a procedure that is done with a laser. It has work for many of the men on here but it is not covered by insurance. Aquablation is a ablation done by a water jet. It has just been approved. There is a doctor in New Jersey and one in Jacksonville Florida that started doing them. The reason I am doing this is to make sure all men get information on any procedure they are looking into. To all men you are not alone we have all gone through this. Do your research. Get a second opinion if you have to. Do a pro and con list. Remember it is your body and you are the one that will have to deal with any side effects. Not the doctor. Make a list of question for the doctor. Because it is the skill of the doctor that is going to give you the best out come. Take care all and good health. Do not give up on your body Tell your doctor your concerns most will listen Ken
