What are you willing to give up to pee like a race horse?

Dear BPH Sufferers:

One common issue with BPH is the ability to naturally pee like we did when we were young and carefree. With that said, what would you be willing to give up to pee like that again?

    Dave,

    Maybe you were willing to give up a lot, when you went with TURP. Im totally content with waking up once at 4 (because my bladder is thickened and sensitive after years of BPH) , visit Bathroom every 3-4 hrs, have normal sex, being totally continent and not butcher my prostate and urethra . After 50th or my 72 year one can't be a race horse again., but can have a normal life as most 50 year old has without giving up on anything. Urology should become minimally invasive.

    The racehorse is probably on Lasix and has been gelded šŸ˜ƒ

      Gelded back in '91 when I had a vasectomy. My breeding years were over. As for meds, at 62 I am fortunate. I take absolutely nothing for any health issues.

      In the horse world, if a horse is not going to be used for breeding anymore, it should be castrated. Makes them more even tempered and easier to handle. If a stallion is gelded later in life, they may retain more aggressive stallion-like behavior, according to Google.

    Iā€™m not willing to give up as much as you did DAVE. Dry ejaculation is so unsatisfying according to so many men now with regrets. just read their posts. Glad you are happy with giving up so much. But so tired of you trying to press your mistake (I mean your decision) on everyone else.

      No mistake (or decision). Best thing I ever done. When a man cannot pee normally (i.e. full retention as was my case), he must decide what is important in life, or what he is willing to deal with or not. Hence my discussion question.

    Hello, Moto:

    You haven't miss a thing. I just private messaged you, like the other 18 men that have asked about my experience. I am the dark horse (no pun intended) on this BPH forum. I am the only one so far on this forum that has done my specific procedure (see message) and been very pleased with it. I did the second to the most invasive procedure you can do to treat BPH. I now no longer have BPH, which is an enlarged prostate, and the symptoms that go along with it.

      Hello, Drummer:

      The post question I made above is simple, but complex. If you want to discuss Urolift (bands) or PAE (beads), find a post where they are being shared and discussed, or post one on your own to get responses. More than likely, you do not want to hear what I did. If so, message me and I would be willing to share.

      If we have learned anything on this forum, doctors will push what their specialty is and what makes them money. We must get smart to weed through the many choices and options that addresses our problem. Next, we decide on a short-term or long-term fix (i.e. non-invasive, minimally-invasive, invasive, or radically-invasive). Lastly, if our doctor is not the one for us, then we must find one that is.

      That tends to more of an American problem with people seeing individual Uro's rather than having a wider choice in major hospitals as in Europe.

      Hi Frank - Just sent a message to you. I had a terrible experience with self-cathing and fired a Uro over it. Went on foley all last summer while I got smart and went through a process of discovery and doctors. Was on foley before the procedure and 10-days afterwards as the bladder healed. During recovery, never took anything stronger than Motrin and Tylenol.

      Generally PAE is good for large prostates, Urolift for small prostates (less than 70g) that are nevertheless impinging on the Urethra. A median lobe on the prostate makes either procedure more difficult and the outcome more uncertain.
