I'm 32 years old and have been diagnosed with BPH. I'm currently on Cialis to help with the symptoms. I've been on it for almost a week and haven't noticed a huge change in symptoms, except last night I was able to sleep through the night.
I had been taking benedryl to help me sleep at night for about 2 years, but found out that this was aggrevating the problem. I was also on Paxil for about 5 years and was told that this could have contributed as well.
I was told that I was a good candidate for Urolift but my insurance doesn't cover it. My urologist's office told me that they would charge about $500 for his fee, but we would need to do it at a surgical center (I haven't contacted them for an estimate yet). I then found a urologist that does it in house and asked how much it would cost for him to do it. His office told me that it would be between $4-7k based on how many implants I would need.
I read on here that some folks were able to get estimates as low as $2500. Should I branch out and try to find someone that will do it that cheaply or is the $4-7k number pretty standard?
Thanks in advance.
