Questions to Ask Your Doctor


If you are ready to take the next step in treating your BPH,

it is important to speak to your doctor about your treatment options. Here are some suggested questions to get the conversation started so you can make the best treatment choice:
  • What causes BPH or an enlarged prostate? Why am I having these symptoms?
  • What are my treatment options?
  • What happens if I don’t do anything to treat my BPH…will it continue to get worse?
  • Am I a candidate for Rezūm Water Vapor Therapy?
  • How does Rezūm Therapy work?
  • How does it compare to other treatment options?
  • How soon can I expect to see improvement with my symptoms?
  • Will I feel anything during the Rezūm Therapy treatment? 
  • How long does the treatment typically take?
  • Do I need to do anything to prepare for the Rezūm Therapy treatment?
  • How will I feel right after the treatment? How about the weeks following treatment?
  • How soon can I return to regular activities? Do I need to take off work?
  • How long will my results last?
  • What are the possible risks associated with Rezūm Therapy?
  • Is Rezūm Therapy covered by insurance? How much will I have to pay out of pocket, and how does this compare to other treatment options?
