Today is three weeks since I traveled from South Carolina to the Cleveland Clinic (ranked #1 in the nation for urology) for determination of proper procedure for urinary retention following brachytherapy and 25 sessions of radiation. Have been intermittently cathing for five months, which has been quite limiting to typical lifestyle, like it's hard to go to a football game and cath or having to use a gas station bathroom for that purpose. After multiple tests my urologist suggested Urolft, which I had last Monday. I can't use alpha blockers as they cause low blood pressure for me.
So far so good. No bleeding now, burning upon urination continues, some urgency, have to get up several times at night, but nothing not forecast prior to procedure.
I hope this continues to go as expected. Some guys on this board are having a lot of issues and I have been told that this procedure is more difficult after the prostate cancer treatments I have had. Fingers crossed.
