My case may be relevant to a lot of people here, so hopefully good answers will help lots of people.
I've got mild but rapidly increasing BPH.
Like many of you probably, I'm overwhelmed with the number of non-medicinal treatment options (medicine hasn't worked for me very well).
I will have to self-fund the procedure since I don't have US insurance. (I'm in Mexico)
So I'm thinking of the following basic plan of action:
1) Get quality MRI imaging done here.
2) Have a good local urologist look over it to look for middle lobe, other anatomical issues. etc.
3) Send the imaging to doctors in the US and elsewhere to see whether they think I'd respond well to their particular treatments. I don't think too many of these treatments (apart from Urolift) are done in Mexico, unfortunately.
4) Somehow try to pick among the so many different treatment options based on their responses, costs, and of course all of your so-helpful responses on effectiveness and go do it. Right now I'm mostly focused on Urolift, PAE, FLA, and aguablation.
It seems fairly straightforward, which makes me wary and want to ask those with so much more experience, does this seem like a sensible plan or are there things I'm missing/other factors to consider?
Thanks in advance!
