Rezum procedure

Posted , 10 users are following.

I am 66 years old. My prostate was measured as a "63". I decided to have the Rezum procedure done 3 weeks ago after my Urologist said if he was considering it himself. I highly recommend it. They put me under so I didn't feel a thing. Woke up with Cath already installed. No pain except a little periodic minor burning. Wife took me home and I sat around for 5 days. Returned to Urologist morning of day 6 and had Cath removed after they injected 100cc sterilized water solution in my blather then they removed Cath to see if I could pee. I was able to pee no problem. They measured how much I peed and is was almost the same amount they injected in me. I am wearing pull up men's diapers and have not had any problems or acvidents except bleeding at the beginning and ending of my peeing. Using the pull up diapers keep everything clean down there under the hood. Sleeping through the night with no problems but when I get the urge to pee, you need to be ready to go.

I get the urge and I can hold it back until I am standing at the toilet but it's tough to keep it back until your ready. The urge hits you with a sense of urgency. 3 weeks after procedure I still have blood in my urine sometimes more and then sometime less. Sometimes no blood except always at the end of peeing. I could pee 100% better right from the beginning. Not sure how long I will continue to bleed but understand this is normal while your plumbing is healing and your prostate is shrinking. Make sure they put you under while the procedure is being done. Looking forward for complete healing without blood and peeing like a teenager.
