Ive had BPH for many years and after tolerating the intolerable side effects from Flomax and Proscar I decided to have the Uroloft procedure done. I looked for with great optimizim that this would be ulimate solution for my problem. I am now 3 months post-op and have to call this procedure a failure. Urinary frequency is back and urine flow is extremely poor. I can no longer urinate standing up as the stream that is produced sprays nearly 180 degrees . There is a lot of pressure when urinating as I can feel the urethra enlarging but find myself bending, twisting and kneading my penis to void. I had the procedure done at a hospitals outpatient surgical center and had a catheter in place 5 days post op. My doctor says there may still be some inflammation and advised me to start back on either the Flomax or proscar. The reason for choosing to have the urolift procedure to begin with was to eliminate the need for these drugs.
