Hello and welcome, Alan.
Criteria for undergoing the surgery are;
1) Medications not relieving the symptoms in 12 weeks.
2) Prostate size more than 40-50 gms. Ultrasound can detect the size and weight of the prostate.
So if both the above criteria are met; you may undergo surgery.
Before surgery, you may get video urodynamics for a comprehensive assessment.
