just wanted to let you know that I had the rezum procedure done 5 weeks ago because I was getting up 6 or 7 times a night to pee. Well last night I only got up 1 time so I would say the procedure is working. Seems like it just takes time for everything to be normal again.  Hopefully this will be the trend. Thanks to everyone in this forum for all of your info.

    Excellent new Ron. It must make you guys who get up several times a night so tired the next day. I presume you do not really need to pee, just the bladder saying to go and get rid of 50cc or so? Do sleeping tablets help you sleep through the wake up call, or is the call too strong?

      Here is my story. I was getting up 6 or 7 times a night to pee plus some other urinary problems that really didn't bother me except the getting up. I went to a urologist seeking help for the getting up. At first he said I had prostatitus. He gave me some antibiotics for the problem and told me to come back in a couple of weeks. I went back and the same problem was going on and he said he was sure that was my problem. Then he started giving me medications for the problem of which non helped, when he exhausted all meds he suggested this new procedure called rezum. I thought why not, nothing else was working. I had the rezum procedure done on July 25 in his office and he gave me some pills to take before the procedure. Going up my rectum was the most painful where I think he numbed my prostate. The actual steam shots were not painfull and the procedure lasted about 40 min. He sent me home with catheter  and I had to use it about 12 or 15 times which was awful until I could pee on my own. Finally start peeing on my own, and it burned and blood came out for about a week. Finally subsided and it seems like normal again. Hope this story helps anyone considering rezum procedure. No sexual side effects as of now.

      Seems like normal means not getting up 6 or 7 times a night to pee. Only getting up 1 or 2, seems normal. Hope this answers your question.
