      From what I've read, HoLep is the best currently. Big improvements, high success rate, long lasting results, well proven. Side effects: RE almost certain, temporary incontinence months after. It's the first thing on my list. Hank

      Its tops on my list also. (FLA would be but the expense without a guarentee rules it out) Aren't they working on HOLEP that preserves ejaculatory function?

      I almost had FLA, if not for jimjames, and I am glad now that I didn't. Re HoLep preservation of normal ejaculation, I don't know that they are studying that. I am willing to take my chances with 80% RE, and 1% of incontinence. CIC and meds are getting old for me. Hank
