My original post on Urolift was that it was a fail. I had the Urolift to relieve BPH retention that was supposedly causing recurring UTI's. I have had UTI's at a rate of 3 to 4 per year for the past 3 or 4 years (approx. every 3 to 4 months) 2 months post lift I had a UTI was treated with tetracycline, as almost all other antibiotics have been overused for the past 25 years. Anyway, after the UTI cleared my BPH symptoms have improved greatly. I' headed into my 4th month and am holding my breath. The URO says sometimes it take several months for the UL to heal completely and get on track. I have been to this guy 4 times since july and he did all the preliminary testing but has never request a psa or done a DRE. He says if I continue to have UTI's the "T" word is next...NO! NEVER, I said. So, he agreed to go back in and make sure nothing has moved, which has happened to a couple of his patients. (thru no fault of his, he said). He estimated my prostate size at 60 gm, when I asked how he came up with that number, he said, when he felt it. No DRE, how did he feel it. Should I continue to trust this guy, is this the "new wave" of urology?...Billy
