I found this website strictly by accident. In an earlier discussion from June of this year I detailed my rezum procedure. To recap: I had the rezum procedure on June 10. The procedure itself was extremely painful by the way. I wore a catheter bag for 3 days and it was removed on June 13. I was able to urinate on my own that morning but by the evening was unable to do so.
So, on to the emergency clinic where a catheter bag was reinstalled and I wore it for 5 days. My doctor removed it and for the next week I had to self catheter several times. This was not painful but uncomfortable and I was able to stop the self catheter on June 23.
I should mention that I passed blood clots several times when doing the self catheter but once I was able to urinate on my own the clots stopped.
Sexual function? Well no other way to put it but to be a little blunt. After 6 weeks, I decided to pleasure myself and a mixture of semen and blood was ejaculated. This was very painful and the pain lasted for about a day. I tried it again about 2 weeks later and same thing except less blood.
Then a week later and nothing but a small blob of semen and that was that.
Now some 5 months later absolutely nothing is ejaculated. I am sad to say but my urologist neutered me. I visited him for a regular routine and I have an appointment to see him again early 2017. He noted that I was the first patient to have this problem but then again I was about the 24th patient he had performed the rezum procedure on.
Hope this helps anyone who is thinking of this. By the way I am 55 years of age and before this had an enlarged prostate that kept me up at night having to use the restroom at least 3 times. Now it is down to 1 time usually. I live in the USA here in south Texas, San Antonio.
