I've suffered from BPH for 30+ years. Had a TURP twenty years ago. BPH keeps coming back. Bad LUTS for years. Medication for a long time that no longer helps. Recently diagnosed with minor prostate cancer on which no one will operate. Fully familiar with catheterization. Question now is: Urolift or something else? My uro is backing urolift. I know there are people here who are for it and against it. I know there are (as with everything) potential bad effects, side effects and unhappy sequelae.
Of course, I do NOT want to wind up with a catheter for life, or any of the other myriad miseries that can result from prostate surgery/treatment of any kind. But I'm sad to say those things can happen with every single procedure about which I've read for twenty years and more. What say you, brethren? If I want relief from LUTS, if medication no longer works, what are the options with the largest upsides and the smallest downsides?
