Customer Question

I am a 62 yo male with a frequent urination history that has worsened after a motor vehicle accident. My Urologist did cystoscopy and imaging. I do not want to take meds as I have a cataract history with a procedure due in future. He said my prostate is not abnormally enlarged, but suggested Urolift procedure. Questions:
1) How long does this last and does it need to be redone?
2) Should I consider another procedure? They all sound bad.
3) Recovery time and time off from work?
4) Discomfort?
I appreciate your thoughts. Harvey

What is your problem? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Does anything make it better or worse? When did it start? Is it consistent? Is it getting worse? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything else which might have triggered it? Any other medical problems? Any other surgeries? Any other medications including over-the-counter pills and herbs? Any family medical history?
