I had the Urolift March 25 and my flow is a little worse and I have an unpleasant sensation in the Prostate area after almost 4 months now.
FYI, I have had a frequent urination problem most of my life and at 42 I had Urologist tell me to be thankful I had good kidneys. Now in my late 70's I went back to a Urologist thinking maybe my enlarged prostate might be making the problem worse. I explained that my flow was fine for me but the urgency and frequency seemed to be getting worse. I tried just about every medicine including Flomax and Alfusion with various side effects. The only thing that has helped is Mybetriq for an Over-Active-Bladder but it stopped working after six months. My doctor doubled the dosage but it caused serious side effects.
My last visit to my Urologist suggested that he could remove the clips and do a partial TURP. My first thought is that if the Urolift failed then will the partial TURP work, and can he do it to prevent the retro ejaculation problem.
I go back for another visit in August to discuss options, but in the meantime I am researching and reading everything I can about medicines and procedures---including this forum. I did not like Flomax for the retro ejaculation side effect but recently I read about taking the medicine every other day would eliminate the retro problem and still work, so I am trying that now.
Cystoscopy's and Bladder Pressure Test I have had have revealed my Bladder has been and is working hard; so my Urologist said there is some blockage and releaving that would allow my bladder to relax and heal and I would get better. Now that the Urolift has failed I now do not trust my doctor that a TURP will work. I feel my flow is OK for me and so I think I will only have the TURP or other procedure done only after I AM HAVING TO URINATE THROUGH A CATHETER.
Any feedback might be helpful but I wish Urologist's would read these and provide some feedback.
