It doesn't make sense for me to hold out much longer to have prostate surgery. My urologist at Hendrick in Abilene said I was not a candidate for a Urolift and their preferred treatment is the traditional TURP. Trying to decide if it is worth the trouble and extra travel to Austin or Dallas or Temple for a HoLEP. Anyone been down this road lately?

I tried the Urolift a few years ago but I had too much scar tissue to successfully get the tube in. I was screaming like banshee so they stopped. Maybe if I was sedated! Best of luck with the procedure.

Thanks Jimbo. Looks like a TURP end of next month.
My advice to fellow THFers: Just say NO to getting old. cheers

There is a new procedure called Aquaablasion. Done with water jets instead of hot lasers. check it out.

I had the Greenlight Laser procedure. I guess it worked "okay".

Thank you for posting this. Glad to know I am not alone! Diagnosed with BPH several years ago and never really had significant issues until the last 12-18 months. Urologist says I'm a "challenging case". After a cystoscopy he determined my bladder was in good shape and that I had a very enlarged prostate. Glad to know my bladder was fine but not certain we needed to go through all that just to rule it out.

I go back in September for a check up and possibly schedule a Urolift for Oct. Told him the only way i would agree is under general anesthesia.

ask you Urologist about Aquaablasion. They are saying is better than Urolift. Urolift doesn't work on Huge prostates.
