Thanks to all who are posting updates on their progress and experience with UroLift -- good to hear both the good and the bad. I'm scheduled to have it done on 8/18 (after canceling Green Light Laser last week) with a doctor in NC who seems very qualified and has done over 60 procedures. I do have concerns about whether or not it'll get me to where I need to be in terms of flow (and the urgency / frequency I experience), but not so concerned if it's not a "lifetime" solution (I'm 47, and chances are that I'll have to do something else in the future).
I'm glad to finally be free of a catheter i had for 3 weeks (after going in to retention -- apparently caused by taking a medicine called Merbetriq on top of FloMax). I am able to pee again without too much trouble. However, I now have a very wide / split urine spray I never had before. Have any others experienced this, and do you know if it's permanent? I did have quite a bit of pain when they put it in (and blood in bag for 2 days), and wondering if they scarred my urethera. I'm trying to get in touch with the PA who took out the catheter yesterday, but hard to get a call back. I hope this is not a permanent strickture caused by the catheter.
Thanks for any feedback.
