Don’t Wait to Find a BPH Treatment

The problems started as soon as I turned 60.
I realized I was having to use the bathroom more often. And by the time I got there, I’d have a weak stream and it would take too long to go. I took a trip to Atlanta with my friends, and when we made pit stops, I’d be taking 5 or even 10 minutes longer in the bathroom than everyone else.
I remember once, at a baseball game, I was standing at the urinal for a long time and just couldn’t go. The line behind me kept growing and I knew all these people were waiting. I actually had to leave without ever going.
I wanted my life back.
Natural remedies seemed like a good option. I’d started taking saw palmetto in my 50s as a preventative measure, but my symptoms persisted so I knew I needed a more permanent solution. A friend of mine had TURP – a common surgical BPH procedure – but he knew there were newer and less invasive options out there, so he recommended I do some research.
I looked online and discovered Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy. I was excited about the procedure because it treats the cause of BPH. Similar to TURP, it removes the excess prostate tissue that causes BPH symptoms. But Rezūm Therapy isn’t an invasive surgery – and it can be done right in a urologist’s office. I talked to my local urologist, and he recommended me to his partner who had started to offer Rezūm Therapy.
Rezūm Therapy was a game-changer.
The procedure was straightforward. I was concerned about pain, but my procedure was pain-free.* I only experienced some discomfort. Within three weeks, I was already seeing a significant difference in my stream. Now I can fully empty my bladder – and quickly!
If you’re having BPH symptoms, do your own research and talk to your urologist. Rezūm Therapy was the right treatment for me!
