Hello all. I really appreciate all the info you provide. I am 60 years old and struggling with enlarged prostate and growing symptoms over the last eight years or so. I have gotten to the point where I have to do something due primarily to being up all night every night. If I don't go to sleep within 15 minutes or so of urinating, then the feeling builds to the point where I have to get back up. I also have to get up 95% of the times when I wake up during the night so the combo of those mean very little sleep. I also have trouble on my long auto trips being able to last very long between stops and of course it is a pain to go all day every day. I am in generally very good health except for this. Not overweight, exercise a lot. My uro recommended the Uro lift but when I tried to schedule they told me my insurance did not cover it and that he could instead do the TURP procedure. I am wanting to avoid that. My thoughts are to do the lift even though paying out of pocket and get five years down the road to medicare insurance and new procedures maybe being available. I am in the Memphis Tennessee area. The uro office also said they could not give me a self-pay price. I know the there is a big discount for the insurance companies so I don't know if self-pay would even be a realistic option. I have had trouble finding out info on who else locally does the uro-lift in any event. I am at the point where I think if I need to travel somewhere to use someone good at a good self-pay price, that is what I need to do. Thanks for any insight you can provide. Raleigh Sanford.
