You people are going to think I'm talking to myself, but, in reply to a question and response, no I haven't got one yet, but, I am more an more convinced this is the way to go if the doc agrees. Let me know how it goes, if you so desire and thanks for the message.

I would suggest you do research on a another procedure that is only one year newer that urolift. It's called Rezum.


I don't know any of your specifics but Rezum can treat a wider spectrum of prostate situations.



e.g. rezum can treat median lobe enlargement. Urolift cannot.


Rezum does not leave behind sutures and metal clips that can be a problem later. I know thus far this is an extremely small probability but you must remember that urolift has only been around something like 5 or 6 yrs in the U.S.. A bit longer in Europe.


Urolift is the most expensive procedure out there. Rezum is way cheaper. In the good sense


There are several videos on Youtube of Doctors giving lectures at urological seminars reviewing pros and cons, Spend a Saturday afternoon and get the low down.


For my money I would go with the rezum. The results are on a par with urolift and some studies show it meets or exceeds the results of surgery. And it doesn't leave behind the metal clips stuck in bodily tissue.



I recently went through all this mishegahss with my Uro guy. he is a proponent of Urolift but my research indicated rezum would be the better play

I agree. Check out Rezum and then make a decision.
