Can anyone give me some advice for my dad. I'm really worried about him because he is getting no sleep due to an enlarged prostate. I am writing this on his behalf as he does not know how to use a computer.
He is 76 years old and has ben diagnosed with an enlarged prostate. They sent him for an MRI scan and he has also had 5-6 biopies. There is no sign of prostate cancer but his blood numbers(PSA) are around 32-34.
The water flow test was low. He has no pain but a discomfort and sensation of needing to urinate. He is up 5-6 times a night and each time it takes 20-30 minutes before he can pass water. He says he found pouring water on his genitals encouraged him to urinate. If he didn't do this he could be up all night. He is exhausted and the lack of sleep for the past year is getting worse.
The doctor has offered the TURP procedure but he wants to seek other options. I have him on vitamin D3 10000IU a day for the last 2 months but it has made no difference.
If anyone can provide additional advice I would be very grateful
