i am 79--generally good health--had green light procedure 12-15 years ago. Necessary becasue had obstruction, went about 6 times a night, and couldn't last 1 hour during the day. Obviously extreme.
Not that that bad now. 3-4/night. Daytimne OK--just frequent. Takes me a long time to fully empty my bladder and flow is often very weak. When i feel urgent need to urinate, I must respond quickly or I will leak..... But, don't HAVE TO do anything yet.
Last week, urologist said TUNA may be best procedure for me. Tests next week to see if my anatomy appropriate and TUNA the following week.
Then I began to research alternataives and here I am. I guess there is no way of knowing for sure which procedure will work best, but one CAN minimize the risks and leave options open for later.
From what I can tell at this point PEM may have greatest reward/risk ratio. High success rate and does nolt preclude other procedures.
Comments very much appreciated.
