I have been suffering with BPH for 15 years+. I am 69 years old and my PSA has climbed to 17.8. Have had 2 biopsies, both negative and recently had a MRI. Determined that my prostate is 119G. Some nights get up 10 or 15 times. About a month ago, quit caffeine and my symptoms have decreased about 1/3. Most nights still have to go 4 or 5 times. My Urologist wanted to do a TURP, but after doing some research, I read about the new Procedure called Rezum. Am considering it, don't like the idea of cutting on me, possibly losing sexual function. I tried Flomax but made me dizzy and a weak feeling so quit that a few years ago. Doctor prescribed 5 mg. Finasteride once daily. After reading some of the Rezum stories on this site, not sure that is the way for me to go, none had a prostate the size of mine, and some had serious pain and blood issues. I don't take pain well. Need some input from Rezum patients to help make a decision.
