That was 5 years ago and still no BPH (A hell of a lot better then going through rotor-rooter like my doc said that I needed)

BTW, the Resume therapy is approved today for BPH and may be approved for prostate cancer (that I didn't have)

You post caught my attention since I have BPH. I did a search and found it is spelled Rezum. I agree about the rotor-rooter and this sounds like a good option.
