Looking for someone who has been through this to help me figure out what is going on. I am a 46 year old male. Heres my timeline:
Wednesday 02/08 rezum procedure. I was put under and not awake for the procedure, which was done by my urologist with a representative from Rezum. Foley cath in for two days.
Friday, 02/10. Cath out, suffered for days, could pass only small amounts of urine.
Wed, 02/15 Went back to Urologist, bladder was distended, 1000cc of urine, Foley cath back in until Monday 02/20.
Mon 02/20 Foley out, bladder again full and unable to pass urine, taught by nurse how to self cath.
Thursday 02/23, prostate swelled to point where I could no longer self cath. Back to Dr. and Foley put back in until this upcoming Tuesday.
My urologist admitted today that he has only performed a handful of Rezum procedures and that the initial results have not been as described on the website. He just keeps saying that the swelling will go down, but clearly has minimal experience with this and can't give me any answers. The only times I have been able to pass any urine on my own are when I am completely overfull and I can only pass a tiny amount and need to cath in order to void. I am taking two flomax/day and have been since I had the procedure. I was taking one/day prior to the procedure. The procedure has been far more intense with negative side effects than the Rezum website indicated and I am getting very frustrated. Please anyone with experience advise if ths is normal. Thank you in advance.
