I as a patient would like to share my experience of REZUM, I have the following:

1. Can't pee for the first 3 weeks, and the 4th week, pee with all effort and only has around 25cc each trip

2. After 30 days, suddenly got improvement, has 50cc to 100cc each trip better than before REZUM and I had 2 Flomax + 1 Proscar every day

3. The 6th week, much better, at least 150cc each trip

4. The 7th week, stop all medication and so far so good

5. Try 3 days after not took any pill, good with No Retro

6. My suggestion, you can stand with at least 3 weeks with catheter with you and not working, try REZUM, not bad

7. 9th week, I have around 200cc each trip, well, I believed to consider normal, should have at least 300cc each trip, hopefully after the 13th weeks, I will have this outcome.

8. Thank you and good luck to all of you who has BPH

9. My REZUM was done in Newport beach, Ca

    That aligns  with most of my patients' reviews. 

     The good news is, things usually improve for the first six months, so you may be even happier in a few months.

    My practice has started to use Spanner Stents  after the rezum procedure  and leaving it in place for three weeks -  this is a small stent that lays over the prostatic urethra  (internally) and allows patients to urinate normally without a catheter. This has helped a lot of folks who wanted the procedure but didn't necessarily want a catheter afterwards.

      Yes. A small string sits at the urethra. It is pulled and the stent falls out.

      The stent still causes some irritation, so it's not perfect, but it's helped a lot of men avoid a catheter

      Right through your urethra, as normal.

      The stent is completely on the inside but ends before your urinary sphincter, so you still have control.

      The stent is probably better (wish I had one after my Rezum) but self cathing was my choice and it wasn't awesome but WAY better than a Foley for weeks

      Is there a stent-like catheter that men can use to test for urethra obstruction, without entering the bladder ? Thanks. Hank

      Hi Dr Jersey,

      Where can i find a URO that does the stent procedure ? Would this stent tell if my problem is the enlarged prostate .or the bladder?

      Thanks ver much DR.

      It could potentially differentiate this if urodynamics were equivocal.

      The stent is called a Spanner by SRS Medical; if you go to the website, they should be able to locate a doctor for you

      Take you for your reply. Ihad the urodynamics test, and could not pee.Dr? If a PSA says 6.8,then one year later 5.2.Does this mean the prostate has decreased in size? I'm 88 years alive, i have an enlarged prostate,size 74CC--is this a really large prostate?Do you think i'm to old for surgery?

      thanks very much DR,

      Hi Morris, What i meant by complete urine retention is not being able to have a natural void. I have complete retention,don't know if rezum would work for me. Did you have other procedures  also?Did you do the urodynamics test and cystoscopy before you did the rezum?I was told Uro Lift would not work for me, maybe Rezum would? 

      Thanks for all this info.

      frank,

      Yes I have both urodynamics test and cystoscopy done in the office and I don't have natural void.

      I think Doctor can give you good advice on yes or no for REZUM, but Euro Lift was told not very good product, REZUM better, I think.
