I had a urolift performed approx 6 weeks ago which I thought was for an enlarged prostate. However having now received a copy of the letter from my urologist to my GP it seems that the problem was not prostate but a 'raised bladder neck'. I am not sure if this condition is linked to a median lobe on the prostate. The letter refers to 5 urolift implants to pull the bladder neck in various directions.
My flow has improved and frequency decreased. I still have some pain around the prostate/behind the right testicle which I am not sure of whether it is operation trauma of an insert pulling. I must say it was rather a shock to find that my prostate was OK (I had been considering PAE but my prostate was too small) and that the bladder neck had been treated instead using Urolift which I thought was only designed to treat prostate enlargement.
Has anyone else had Urolift for this condition or can comment on its use around the bladder neck or to move a median lobe?
