I would like to hear about men who already had the HOLEP done and hear their feedback on it.
This is how it begun,
I had a urinary blockage about 6 years ago, could not urinate at all so I went to the ER with 1 liter of urine so they installed a catheter and emptied my bladder, went home with the cath for 5 days, then i say a urologist that inserted an old think metal camera up my penis to see the prostate, told me it was swollen, removed the cath and told me to try peeing which I did with difficulty then was prescribed Flowmax then went home, kept taking the pills for about 6 months then stop taking the pills, everything was back to normal.
About 2 months ago, I felt sick and nauseated, went to ER, had my creatinine level way high to 230, after other test they noticed that I had 750ml of urnine in my bladder and at that point I had no blockage at all and could urinate normally but I wasn`t emptying my bladder so they put a cath on for 5 days, then I had a systoscopy and noticed that my bladder was swollen and after that they sent me home no cath but told me if I can`t pee to come back to the ER and have a cath put on, so I left home and drank a few water bottle but could not feel any urge to pee and when I tried, only a few drop would come out so from this point on I could not pee so I went back to ER the same night and they again put a cath on since I had about 700 ml of urine in my bladder. I now have the catheter for the past 6 weeks, just changed it last week to a new one, I also have a valve on so during the day I keep the urine in the bladder to make it work and empty a few times a day and at night I put the bag on, so this is where I am now, 3 urlologist told me my prostate was huge and needed operation and that I was past taking care of it with just Flowmax. So now not sure what else to do, removing the cath and see if I can pee or just wait for the call to get operated on, not sure if I will be able to pee after the operation or I could have permanent bladder damage.
Any input would be appreciated
