Urolift - Followup visit

Posted , 11 users are following.

Can anyone that has had urolift tell me what to expect in the followup visit? I am one week out, after experiencing the most painful procedure of my life, just getting over the pain and urine flow is almost but not quite as good as before the procedure. The doctor is a bit rough so I really don't want another cystoscopy with no numbing medicine. Is it just an office visit where he asks how you are doing and collects another $250.00 bucks or do they do more tests?

    Good Afternoon Ben.....

    You must have had it in the office. They are trying to cut corners. I had mine done in a surgery center under a general 3 1/2 years ago I did not feel anything but I know it was going to hurt. I think sometime doctor should have that done to them. It should be done when your out.

    I had my fellow up done 2 weeks later. He is going to ask you how you feel and how are you peeing and if the burning is done. The doctor being rough is another story. I would have went somewhere else. No doctor should be like that. I think sometimes they forget what there doing.

    You should be fine he just ask questions. And if you don't want him to touch you say so. Have a good day Ken

    I had a urolift done on October 19 - I was under general anesthesia in a surgery center (hospital OR). My follow-up is in a month. The first day was pretty painful, but each day has gotten better, now 5 days out. Urination still burns, but not as bad as at first. I have not had to self cath except the first day.

    I had a PAE in July of 2015; it did nothing. The IR was not able to get to both sides, and the side he did was not done properly. The edge of my prostate shrank some, but not the core. If the procedure is so complex that only a few people in the world can do it properly, it is not worthwhile. It is also very expensive. Mine was a total of $44,000. $7000 from me, $37,000 from insurance. For nothing.
